In fact, it was listed on Amazon #1 best sellers list in 2012 and 2013. However, what is it exactly that makes the DXR-5 tick? Here is a short glimpse on that:
As any other high-end best-selling baby monitor out there, the DXR-5 comes with an array of cool features, that not only make it easier to use but also more efficient and convenient. Here are some of them;
- The parent unit comes with a 2.4-inch color display screen/monitor with a decently high resolution of 360 by 240. It is autotuned and encrypted for static-free wireless transmission by FHSS for a broadcast of between 2400 and 2483MHZ. Basically, in other words, this means that the transmission process between the monitoring unit and the parent unit is virtually uninterruptible or cannot be interfered with by your cellular phone network or WiFi.
- It can support up to 4 cameras simultaneously while the monitor has a voice activated battery saving feature which can either be actuated manually or over-the-voice. Either way, you can save a lot of battery juice by constantly making use of this feature.
- Although it is largely powered by AC, the unit has a lithium, rechargeable, high-performance battery that can be used in place of the 6V 120V DC adapter in case you live in a place plagued by an erratic electricity connection. This battery can last you up to 6 hours of continuous usage, longer than the average baby can sleep without rousing.
From a general standpoint, the DXR-5 is one of the better-designed baby monitors to date. For starters, it has a conveniently-placed waist-clip that makes it possible to use the monitor while working or doing other household chores. At the same time, the DXR-5 camera has a dimming/lateral angle range of +/-5 degrees and a verticle range of more than 90 degrees. The two culminate to a monitor with one of the widest fields of view.
Ease of use
The Infra-red vision bolstered by the LED lighting and images of the DXR-5 makes it possible to use the unit even in dimly-lit conditions. At the same time, the high-resolution cameras can show images clearly up to ten feet away, so you can also hang the unit on the ceiling overlooking the baby’s cot.
What’s more, the high-sensitivity gain microphone can readily pick up even the faintest of noise, squeaks or squeals from your sleeping infant.
Additionally, as much as you can strap the unit on your waist for easy handling, you could also mount it on a wall, a tabletop or upright on any flat hard surface. For a wall-mount, screws are included for easier mounting.
Lastly, like any electronic gadget, the DXR-5 comes with a comprehensive, easy to understand, well-explained manual or user guide.
Genexus, the company behind the production of this baby monitor offers a 6-month warranty for the purchase of each unit.
In conclusion, if you’re looking for a baby monitor, priced between $100- $150 then there is no doubt that the Infant DXR-5 is the best baby video monitor money can buy.
