    Default Oricom 700 Vs the ibaby monitor

    Hi, I am after purchasing a video monitor and am tossing up between the ibaby and the Oricom 700. I currently have the ibaby on layby as i like the idea of being able to view bub from both my partners and my iphone, however i have also heard good things about the oricom 700 so now im not so sure. Any advice would be great!! Thanks so much

    I don't have either of these brands.

    But i looked at the iPhone one - and honestly is it not just the coolest thing? Lol i think it would be so handy!

    We had an oricom. It broke down and stopped showing video feed after 6 months. We currently use a wireless webcam ( night vision) to keep an eye on ds. Looking for a better option when baby girl is born.

    Do you think you may end up having two children close enough together that you would use two cameras? To me, the drawback of the ibaby is that it's about $200 for the camera unit and there's no option for a cheaper second camera - you have to spend another $200 to monitor a second child.

    We have a summer infant - the second camera is less than half the price of the full unit and we can see feeds from both cameras on the monitor unit.

    Good luck!

    You could use the I cam app. I use that with daycare- lets the kids explore and play around the house and regulate their behaviour without noticing I still have line of sight.
    Anyway- it allows you up to 4 cameras so u can monitor multiple rooms via iPhone, iPad. Only downside is we never got sound working. We overcame that with cheap sound only monitors.
