The Lorex LW2002W Digital Portable Color LCD Wireless Surveillance System works just as effectively as a video baby monitor as it does a surveillance system.

The Lorex LW2002W has the latest digital technology to prevent interference. The system uses 'frequency hopping spread spectrum' technology which guarantees privacy and no interference from devices such as cordless phones, wireless routers and microwave ovens. As a parent you know the benefits of being able to see and hear your baby are well worth the investment of a video baby monitor. No more accidentally waking up your baby when you go and check if your baby is still sleeping, just glance at your monitor. From a safety point of view the benefits of always being able to see your baby are priceless.

Picture Quality and Monitor Features:

An excellent quality picture can be viewed on the monitors 2.4" LCD screen. The camera has the ability to view images in low light conditions or full darkness. The camera comes with a power adaptor, rechargeable battery and cradle. The volume on the monitor can be adjusted by using the up and down arrow buttons. A special feature of this digital video baby monitor is that it can support an additional 3 cameras (total of 4) which have already been paired to the receiver. This is ideal if you want to watch a second child in another room or even use another camera at the front of your house as a surveillance camera. The extra camera's are reasonably expensive though, at about 80% of the cost of the initial system purchase.

Audio Quality:

Crisp, clear soundis what you'll get from the Lorex LW2002W digital video baby monitor. The transmission range is up to 450 feet. It has a highly sensitive microphone allowing you to hear every little sound your baby makes if you want too. If the noise in the room is below a certain level the sound automatically mutes itself, then when the sound in the room ( crying) reaches that threshold, the sound comes back on. It's designed this way to prevent white noise, however it seems to be an unpopular feature of the Lorex video baby monitor- some parents would prefer the sound to always be turned on with the mute function optional.

Other Features:

The Lorex LW 2002W Digital video baby monitor is very easy to set up, it only takes a few minutes. There is an 'Out of Range' message which notifies you when you have the camera and monitor(receiver) too far apart to communicate with a strong signal.

Television compatible:

The camera's image can be displayed as a split screen on your TV using picture-in-picture. This allows you to watch TV and view your baby at the same time. The system also works with a recording device such as a VCR or DVR.

There are only a few unfavourable comments made in regards to the Lorex LW2002W Digital Wireless Surveillance System when used as a video baby monitor, the main one is not being able to have the sound turned on constantly, secondly you can get audio feedback if you take the handheld monitor too close to the camera, however, this is standard for any piece of audio equipment if the receiver gets too close to the source. Thirdly the battery life is a bit poor.

Overall this is quite simply an outstanding, affordable, digital baby monitor disguised as a surveillance system, if privacy and no interference is a high priority feature then the Lorex LW2002W Digital Surveillance System is the video baby monitor you need. Parents rate this monitor as 4* out of 5*.
