Summer Infant In-View Review

Summer Infant In-View Video Baby Monitor

Being a mother is not simple and the first time I gave birth, I thought it’s going to be a nightmare until my baby grows up and doesn’t need me to always check up on him to see if he’s alright. I’m currently a mother of 3 and I can tell you that it’s not easy to have so many children, especially given the fact you always need to keep an eye on them. However, my experience of being a mother was far better than I expected because soon enough I learned about baby monitors.

In fact, when I heard how much they can help me sleep at night by letting me see what my baby is doing every moment, I decided I absolutely need to get one and that is how I started researching the Summer Infant InView video baby monitor. Below I’ll tell you more about it.

Impressive 600 ft range

If you’re like me and you always go for a coffee in the morning at your friends who live a few hundred feet away from you, then it’s mandatory that you have someone watch over your baby while you’re away. Luckily, I’ve forgotten all about the stress of hiring a nanny or having my mother over (or “big granny” as my husband calls her) so that she can keep an eye on my little rascal. With a range of 600 feet, you can know exactly what your baby is doing and allows you to genuinely have a good time with friends.

High quality portable screen

Did I mention the screen is portable and how wonderful the picture quality is? I never actually thought you could get this kind of quality for the affordable price this baby monitor is sold for.

The monitor is portable as well, so you can easily take it anywhere you want as long as you remain in range and watch over your baby as you’re right there next to him/her. Size-wise, it measures 5 inches, so it’s about the size of a smartphone. On top of that, this model also has night vision, which makes it possible to easily check up on your baby at night. Now that’s what I call getting a full package!

A great choice you won’t regret

Since I’m not the type to spend my money on things without researching them well, I have to say that after scouring the internet I just couldn’t find anything better than this model. The baby monitor that was closest to it in terms of price and overall performance was the Infact Optics DXR-8 video baby monitor.

However, this one has better image quality. You can also add up to 3 additional cameras to it and mount it on the wall. In fact, it even comes with security clips and a wall anchor is included which means you can easily attach it to the wall without having to drill a hole in it.


  • Easily add up to 3 extra cameras
  • Out of range and low battery indicators.
  • Sound activated LED lights.
  • Black and white night vision camera
  • Large and flat 5 inch screen with crisp image quality.


  • Some people have complained the night vision image is a bit grainy.
  • The range of the baby monitor can decrease if used in buildings with concrete walls.

In conclusion

If you want to take the stress off being a parent, get this video baby monitor and you’ll understand that being a parent can be a very enjoyable and rewarding experience!
