❌ 6 reasons NOT to buy
– A few parents found the parent unit would unexpectedly turn on and continue beeping false alarms. – Much like the Oricom SC710, many parents found the video quality to be quite poor in night vision mode. – Some users found the battery would not last more than 2 hours. – The unit is not that cheap for a baby monitor. – The screen will continually turn off if in VOX mode. – Some users found the practical unit range to be not that great.
The Oricom SC720 is the 4 camera version of the SC710 but unfortunately has the same flaws as its predecessor: poor quality night vision, battery losing charge and going out of range. These issues are probably serious enough to render the unit not that useful for parents and there are better options elsewhere.
