Motorola MPB36 Digital Video Baby Monitor - Review


Disclaimer: I received products  for review purposes. No other compensation was received. Though the product was free, opinions are 100% my very own. 

When it comes to safety at home there is so much to choose from. Our parents put safety locks on all the doors, they make sure that our bath water is warm and not too hot or too cold, they stock up on medicine, buy top of the line thermometers and spend numerous amounts of money just to make sure that we are safe from harm. One product that mommy and I recommend for all new parents is a baby monitor. Not only does this product provide security to parents but can be used for years to come. Don't think just babies, think seniors as well. They also need to be kept an eye on as well. Mommy and I have tried numerous monitors and today we bring one to you from Motorola. When Motorola contacted mommy about doing a review for one of their digital video monitor, it was a no-brainer that we would say yes. We are huge fans of the Motorola brand and it's a company that mommy knows make quality products. How many of you have ever owned a motorola cell phone? Think about that when you read our review.
With spring here and everyone starting to enjoy the nicer weather and plan vacations, Motorola want to be sure that every parent has the peace of mind that their children are well monitored.

  • The MBP18 is a great first-time video monitor and comes equipped with infrared night vision and a 1.8 inch digital screen. This monitor offers all the luxury of a video monitor without breaking the bank.
  • The MBP26 offers the same features as the MBP18, but also has a few added bonuses. This monitor is a digital wireless baby monitor that offers an additional sound activated lights and two-way communication. This gives you the capability to see, hear, and talk with your baby when you are not able to be by their side. 
  • The MBP33 is a wireless video baby monitor that comes with a 2.8 inch color LCD screen. This monitor comes complete with remote zoom feature, infrared night vision and high sensitivity microphone. Additionally, the MBP33 comes with a support stand and rechargeable parent unit. 
  • The MBP36 comes with a 3.6 inch color LCD screen and offers a remote tilt, pan, zoom camera. This gives you the capability to investigate and look around without having to physically be in the room with your baby. The MBP36 also comes standard with features that have been mentioned, such as infrared night vision, pre-recorded lullabies, and sound activated lights. This monitor has everything you could ever need at your fingertips! 

As you can see, Motorola has a monitor to fit every different family and their individual needs. Whether you’re looking for your first video monitor or a top-of-the-line video monitor with all of the bells and whistles, Motorola has a great monitor to offer. All Motorola monitors are protected against eavesdropping, so you can be sure that your video stream is from your eyes only.

I had the honor of receiving and reviewing the MPB36 and I was blown away. Not just with the features but with the ease it was to use. 

Out of the box I was amazed at how big the screen actually was. We're talking 3.5" of screen that allows you to see almost everything that needs to be seen. The picture quality was amazing and the fact that this camera is expandable up to 5 cameras is a hit with mommy and me. That means that you don't need to walk with the camera to a different room, you just need to buy an additional one or two or how ever many you need. Mommy forgot to take a picture of this using the night vision but I can tell you that it is awesome! We have reviewed other monitors before that didn't totally disappoint in the night vision department but it didn't wow us either. This one truly did. Motorola really did take their time in getting this right!


One of the feature that mommy and I loved was the fact that this not only told you the battery level but also tells you the temperature of the room. This is great for parents who worry about whether the room is too cold or hot for their little one. Don't worry about the battery, it is fully rechargeable but you also get an AC power adapter for both the parental and camera unit. The battery life is also pretty good and has lasted almost 2 days with constant use.

The camera unit is by far one of the best that mommy has used. You can tilt, pan and zoom in on your little one while they sleep using the parental unit leaving all your fears at bay. The two way feature is really great as well and mommy has actually spoken to me while I was in the room and I was able to respond back with no outside interference from the numerous other electronics that is in my room. The sound is really clear and the 5 LED lights on the parental unit lets  you know the noise level. Notice the 1 green light on the above photo? Yes it was pretty quiet that day.

Now the only thing that I wished Motorola included was the time on the parental unit. I know some of you parents would love to know what time it is when your little one wakes in the middle of the night. Maybe the next model may include that. Besides that this is one really great unit and it gets my TWO TINY THUMBS UP!

You can purchase Motorola Baby Monitors wherever baby products are sold such as Amazon, Target or BabiesRUs.

  1. Back when I had my oldest, I don't even think video monitors had been invented yet. They are seriously one of the BEST products for new parents. I had one with my second and I loved that thing!

  12. That looks like a great monitor. I was just thinking that I raised my two kids without owning a monitor. If I had that to do over I would have gotten one. Not sure why I didn't.....this was 12 and 17 years ago :-)

    ReplyDelete

  26. It’s always great to cast our watchful eyes on our children as often as possible. So it is important to acquire all the help that we can get. Motorola is such an amazing brand. I’m sure that whatever they come up with, that product will always be great. So definitely, this video baby monitor is one of the best choices. :)

  27. video monitors are so cool. i'd probably find myself just staring at the kids instead of resting though

    ReplyDelete
  28. My BIL and his wife just had a baby and we've been trying to think of a great present. I'm going to show hubby, this could hit pay dirt. I love that it gives you room temperature too. They live in FL., and it can get too hot for baby w/the air off and too cold with it on!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would love one of these for my daughter. I have the old school radio

    ReplyDelete
  30. My niece is expecting her first baby and I think this would make a great gift for her. I am putting in on my list right now of things to consider for her gift from us!

    ReplyDelete
  31. When my boys were small they only had sound monitors and they weren't great. This looks amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Very cool! It looks so much more advanced than ours. Then again, ours is almost five years old. So, there's that. LOL>

    ReplyDelete
  33. A monitor that actually monitors not just listens, I need that. My boys are learning to climb out of their cribs and I love the idea that I can see when that happens. I love the suggestion to use the monitor with seniors.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love this baby monitor! I wish this would have been invented when my daughter was a baby.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  44. Baby monitors are fab I must admit ive been parinoid when it comes to Blake so its good to have reassurance. We don't have a video monitor in a way its good as I'd always be checking if I did.
