This testimonial was written by a Cubo parent named BenedictN. First, we chose the best-rated baby monitor on Amazon. Then, we chose Cubo after a lot of research and compared it to similar ones that work over wifi and also others that have their own monitor with a direct connection. The thought of having a monitor directly linked to the camera was something we appreciated due to do security reasons and connectivity in case the connection to our wifi was not stable. However, we also wanted to be able to look into our little one if we weren’t home.
What We Chose FirstWe actually got the highest-rated and most popular baby monitor on Amazon that linked directly to its own monitor but ended up returning it because the battery would not even make it more than 2 hours and the monitor kept losing its connection to the nursery less than 30 feet away.
Switching to Cubo AiUnboxing the Cubo was pretty nice. Things we’re well laid out and organized. There was a bit of confusion during setup. The program did not have you select the available wifi in the vicinity like a vast majority of other apps, you had to type in your wifi name and password. (Cubo Note: Starting with app versions 1.19.2 (Android) and 1.2.0 (iOS) users no longer have to manually type in their Wi-Fi Password- see all updates here). Parts of the stand are also housed inside the base of the stand so be sure to be on the look-out for that. The different mounting options should cover most, if not all, nursery setups. Ours tends to swivel really easily though and that causes the camera to not be centered and my slight OCD kicks in. It would be nice if the pole was squared off so it sits flush against the crib and not pivot.
“We really like that there is no red light to distract her in the dark like all of the other cameras out there.”
