Last week a package arrive from Levana. They had sent me a video baby monitor, this one to be exact, the Keera 2 camera set.
When Izaiah was little, I had a video monitor that lasted about a month. It required a PC to view the baby, which I had a Mac. At the end, we just gave up on the whole video thing – occasionally using iPads for a hack job on nights when the kids were sick. I didn’t think much of it, until we moved into our new house where the master bedroom is down and all the kids bedrooms are upstairs.
The Levana video baby monitor couldn’t of arrived at a better time. With this sciatica issue, last week – I couldn’t climb stairs. My husband put the 2 cameras upstairs (it took 2 minutes to connect to the monitor) – and SHAZAM! While I couldn’t BE upstairs, I could at least see my kids upstairs.
The video system can hook up to 4 cameras. The 2 we currently have are in Zeke’s room and the playroom. So – video monitor is great and all, but this system has ALL the bells and whistles. Get this. I CAN TALK TO THE KIDS THRU THE CAMERA.
Levana Keera Video Baby Monitor Review
I may have REALLY screwed up the first day when I saw Zeke upstairs playing and I started whispering thru the monitor “ZEKE. ZEKE. I SEE YOU.” He may have ran down stairs screaming “SCARED! SCARED!” I know I win mom of the year, and I felt bad – but he got over it and forgave me.
So back to the bells and whistles…. Last week, not being able to climb stairs – I was able to manage the cleaning of the playroom and tuck the kids in via the baby monitor. This was such a blessing because it REALLY sucks not being able to put your baby in bed and kiss him good night.
In addition to the ability to see and talk to my kids, the monitor also allows me to take photos, videos, play lullabies, watch multiple cameras at once, and those are just the options I play with regularly.
Yesterday, I woke up at 6 am to a sound, it was the monitor. I looked at it and couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Our 4-year-old had gone into the Zeke’s room and decided that he needed a ROCKING HORSE in his crib. Yes, Zeke was asleep when a rocking horse was placed in his crib for him to play with. That’s how my life rolls around here folks. And now, I get to watch all the chaos on a little monitor. This photo is of Izaiah, 4-year-old, gathering tons of stuffed animals and throwing them in Zeke’s crib so that he can climb out. Lovely.
Did I mention it’s cordless? So right now, I am outside working on the patio – all the kids are inside not cleaning like they are suppose to – I am viewing this all on the monitor. The battery lasts 24 hours, at night I have been plugging it in and it stays charged thru-out the day.
The cameras just plug into the wall. There is a button that you use to connect to the base, just press and SHAZAM you are ready to watch your kids.
OH, and it can see in the dark – no for real – it has invisible infrared LED night vision. The night vision provide a clear image of your child in the dark up to 12ft away. Your baby will sleep more soundly without the distracting red LED lights found on traditional baby video monitors.
Private and Secure Signal – No Weirdos Watching Your Kid!
ClearVu® technology provides you the outstanding precision and clarity of a digital signal from up to 750ft away. The Keera monitor has a private, secure and interference-free digital signal that no one but you can access.
If you are in the market for a baby video monitor, I highly recommend the Levana
While I am SO glad that we have this now, I so wish we had this when they were younger as well.
