We’ve been asked to review this Motorola MBP853 baby monitor, perfect timing with a family member due in January. It would make a lovely baby shower gift too.

The Motorola  baby monitor (model MBP853 Connect HD WiFi) comes with a 3.5-inch colour LCD monitor that has a remote pan, tilt and digital zoom function with a 300° view of your baby’s room. The baby monitor has two-way communication to speak to your baby and hear their replies. The monitor has a room temperature sensor so you will be able to keep an eye on the room temperature and you will receive alerts when it gets too hot or cold. With the built-in infrared led lights you can see your baby’s room in the dark (the image is black and white at night) and integrated lullabies help soothe your child back to sleep, number 2 lullaby is great. With the baby monitor you can get free alerts when motion and sound are detected (triggered snapshots).

Remote viewing is possible on your Android device (4.0 or later) or iOS (7.0 or later) smart phone, tablet or computer via the Hubble for Motorola Monitors app, so you can see a live video stream when you’re away.

In-app video recording and image capture is a free feature and requires a Smartphone or Tablet with available storage. Please note this features is different to the Motion Triggered Recording service, which requires a paid subscription plan.

Just one thing I noticed when reviewing the baby monitor, is that you have to turn the camera on first to pair up with the monitor, if you do it the other way the unit bleeps at you and is not happy, not a good idea when you are trying to settle a little one!


The baby monitor is of a good quality and is straight forward and easy to use, up to 4 cameras can be added to the system which is great for monitoring additional rooms or other children’s bedrooms
