This model has become a best seller in it’s own right on sites like Amazon. The MBP36S has taken some of the fantastic features that were offered on the MBP33 and enhanced them to give you an even better video baby monitor.
This really is a great investment for all of those new parents that want to keep a close eye on their little ones while they sleep. Many families have very busy lives that don’t stop when a new baby arrives, you may already have children that need looking after and really have your hands full. With the MBP36S you can carry the monitor around with you while you carry out the endless jobs around the house, or just put it down next to you while sit back and put your feet up. In the summer months you can even take it into the garden with it’s long range while still keeping a close eye on your baby. This video baby monitor will give all parents absolute peace of mind that their baby is safe in their room while they sleep.
Key Features Of The Motorola MBP36S
Let’s have a look at the many great features that come with the Motorola MBP36S. Check to see if they match up to your requirements, we’re pretty sure they will. This market leading video baby monitor has some of the best features out there.
3.5 Inch LCD Colour Screen With Infra Red Night Vision
The parent unit has an impressive 3.5 inch LCD colour display that gives you very sharp pictures in the night and day. The infra red pictures are very clear and allow you to pick out the smallest movements and objects in the room. If you get woken up in the middle of the night by a sound, you will be able to check up on your baby instantly by glancing at the screen, rather then having to go into their room. This screen size has been slightly increased from it’s predecessor and makes it far easier to see from a distance. Definitely a great feature.
Clear Sound And Audio Activated LED Lights
The audio that is passed from the baby unit to the parent unit is encrypted for security and is crystal clear. If the monitor picks up a small noise it will come through the speakers on the parent unit and will also register by lighting up the series of five LED lights to alert you to the sound even if you can’t hear the monitor. The audio set up is great, it means if you have music on or are watching television and can’t hear or see the screen you will be alerted by the LEDs coming on and can then go and check the screen.
2.4 GHz FHSS Technology With 200 Metre Range
The range on this monitor is very big. If you measure out how far 200 metres is you will be surprised. Most properties and gardens combined don’t come anywhere near to 200 metres in length which means for most people this model will work in and around the house and garden with no problem. If you do start to go out of range an alarm will sound notifying you that you need to get closer to the baby unit to keep receiving a signal. All of this is powered by a high powered 2.4 GHz FHSS wireless connection that will give great quality and will not drop out.
Two way communication means that you can monitor your baby and speak to them while they are in their room. If they are not settling down and need a soothing voice you can speak through the parent unit and it will come out of the speaker on the baby unit. This means you don’t have to go to them to calm them down to sleep, you can gently get them to nod off. If this doesn’t work there are five lullabies built in that will sing them to sleep.
Remote Zoom, Pan And Tilting
This model goes one step further than it’s predecessor by not only allowing you to zoom in but also enabling you to pan and tilt the camera remotely. You can use the parent unit to move the camera side to side or up and down to get the perfect position to monitor your baby. Babies tend to wriggle all over the place when they are asleep and it’s hard to predict which end of the cot they will be in so this is a handy feature meaning they can’t go out of view from the camera. The zoom function is easy to use and will still give a very clear picture no matter how far you zoom in or out.

What The Customers Say
Now let’s move on to what some of the customers have said about this model. There are hundreds of very good reviews for this model online, so we have read through them and picked out some of the most common themes to give you some other owners’ perspectives, not just our own thoughts.
Very Sharp Night Vision
The night vision infra red picture that is broadcast in the night is very clear and sharp. A few people have commented that they can see their babies eyes open and can see the smallest details in the babies room. This is very important as most of the time you will be using the monitor it will be dark. The sharpness of the picture means that you don’t have to have a light on in the room as well.
Handy Zoom And Panning Camera
Being able to move the camera angle as baby moves has proved to be a very popular feature in the customer reviews. Not many babies stay in one place while they sleep so this is a great feature. Many other video baby monitors on the market only have one position, giving the MBP36S a clear advantage over much of the opposition.
Audio Is So Clear
Many have fed back that the audio is very clear and the quietest noises and movements can be heard. A couple of people have even mentioned that they can hear their babies breathing through the parent unit. Brilliant if you cannot see the video while you are doing other things.
Great Signal In A Large House
The range and signal strength in large houses over multiple floors has been a great feature for some customers. As with WiFi signals, there is the worry that they will drop out with obstacles and thick walls but this model has a big enough range to work in large houses and over large distances like a long garden.
Battery Life Could Be Better
This is a bit of a downside to this model that a number of people are not too happy about. As the monitor is very high quality it takes a lot of battery power to run the parent unit. Many people have complained that the battery life needs to be longer, however, it can be charged while it is working so if you plug it in over night to charge you won’t have any issues. When a wireless device like this delivers high quality images it will use up a lot of battery.
One Of The Best On The Market
A number of people who have purchased the MBP36S has previously owned a number of other video baby monitors and not been happy with their performance. The MBP36S however has been rated as one of the best many people have used and are very happy with the results. This cements the fact that it is a market leader.
The Final Word
Motorola have done it again. Launching another fabulous market leader in the video baby monitor market, the MBP33 was a tough act to follow with rave reviews but the MBP36S has taken all of the good bits and added more. This is a truly versatile camera that offers clarity of picture and sound. While you are monitoring your baby you can alter the camera angle and zoom in with no problems all from the parent unit. For busy people this is ideal, noises and movements are picked up by three different sensors, the video, the audio and the audio lights. One of these is going to get your attention meaning you will not miss anything. For peace of mind and your baby’s safety, this is a great investment that will last you for a long time, even if you have a large property the range on this will not limit you to where you can use it.
A very worthy member of our top ten video baby monitors and highly recommended.
