TImeflys Digital Video Baby Monitor
The Timeflys baby video monitor is wireless and is meant to be used in the home to keep an eye on your little one. You have a camera that you place in the nursery and a handheld parent unit with a video monitor screen that displays a live video of your baby or toddler.
This is a user-friendly baby monitor with 2 way communication, pan and tilt, a zoom, IR night time vision and an ambient temperature sensor. You also have a 12 hour battery life on the parent’s unit in standby mode and a very large 1000 ft operating range.
One of the great features of this baby monitor, that many of the others don’t have, is that you can upload your own lullabies, songs or messages to the unit.

2 way communication
The 2 way communication feature with adjustable volume is a necessity on any good baby monitor, because it lets you talk to your little on when they wake up or are unsettled, but you are in another room. You can also talk to your partner if they are in the nursery and you are over the other side of the house.
Pan and tilt and zoom
The pan and tilt on the camera has a wide 350 degree horizontal range and a 120 degree vertical range, which lets you follow your partner around the room as they end to your baby or watch your little one scamper across the room themselves.
Not all baby monitors have a pan and tilt feature and they don’t all have a zoom feature. The Timeflys baby monitor has all of these features and the x 2 zoom lets you move in for a closer look when your baby is sleeping or is unsettled.
Ambient temperature sensor
Checking the ambient temperature in the nursery is not a feature that all parent’s find useful, but it is there if you need it. You can set a minimum and maximum range and the handheld parent unit will alert you if the temperature goes outside of this range. The temperature can be set in Celsius or Fahrenheit.
IR night time vision
The Timeflys baby video monitor has an automatic IR night time function of 15ft that turns on when the camera detects low light levels. This means that you don’t need to turn the light on in the nursery to see your baby as the camera gives you crystal clear vision, regardless of whether it is day or night.
There is also a brightness setting that you can alter to suit your own preferences, on the parents unit.
MP3 lullaby player
The MP3 lullaby and story player is a great additional feature on this baby monitor, because you can load your own lullabies, stories or songs onto an SD card and remotely play any of them from anywhere in your home.
You can also connect the parent’s unit to your computer using the USB cable and upload songs or lullabies directly.
When you set the parent’s unit to standby mode you have up to 12 hours battery life before it needs to be recharged. Using the VOX feature you can set the monitor to shut down when it hasn’t sensed sound after 50 seconds (which saves the battery) and it will come back on automatically when your little one cries or makes a noise.
When the battery in the handheld unit is becoming low, the unit will give a notification alert, so you can plug it in to recharge.
With a large 1000ft operating range, you can be just about anywhere in your home and still be within range of the camera. If you go outside of this 1000ft range, the parent’s unit will alert you so you can move closer.

On the other hand, some customers complain about the quality of the videos and that their monitors stopped working properly or recharging after only a few months.
At first blush, Timeflys is a great baby monitor with lots of great features. it has 2 way communication, pan and tilt, a zoom, large operating range and you can upload your own lullabies.
