The package comes with one baby unit and one parent unit, both need to be plugged into power outlet. The base unit should be plug into power outlet in baby room not more than 3 feet from baby’s crib while the parent unit can be plugged into any outlet wherever you want to monitor.

This is the model with easiest setup and involve the least accessories (no power adapter). Firstly, the base unit is plugged in and powered on in the baby room. Then, the parent unit is plugged in at intended area and long pressed till the link indicator light is on where it will auto search and link to baby unit.

The sound from baby is clear with no static noise thanks to the highly sensitive microphone and DECT technology. Voice data is digitally secured without and protected from unauthorized access.
Sound Level Indication
There are 5 level of sound-activated lights indication on parent unit depends on the audio level picked up from the child. This is very helpful and enable you to keep track of your infant while you are doing house chores like vacuuming or listen to music.
We had a look at customer’s opinion of the Motorola MBP8 Digital Audio Monitor and they love it. The reviews on Amazon were mainly 5 star with majority complimenting the sound quality and range supported. The only drawback would be mobility where the parent unit cannot be carried around easily as it has to be plugged into the power outlet. There are a few bad reviews about the reception quality and LED lightning but it is just very few reviews. We feel you should really check it out and you will be really happy with it, especially at the LOW price of under $20 for good quality product from Motorola.
