Upgrading For Peace Of Mind: With The Levana Willow 5” Video Baby Monitor with PTZ Camera

Posted on March 7, 2018 in Review/ Sponsored

Disclosure: This post is in partnership with Levana Canada. As always, opinions are all mine.

Over the years I’ve reviewed a few baby monitors. But, we have a big house, so we have many uses for baby monitors. I say the more, the merrier! I’d like to get one more for our playroom!

Levana recently sent me the Levana Willow 5” Video Baby Monitor with PTZ Camera with an extra camera unit. I was excited to get a monitor with an additional camera unit because it will come in handy for when baby girl arrives. I can use one unit to watch both cameras, and it’s a pretty easy set up so my husband can do it pretty quickly! I was impressed with how little set up the camera needs.

Recently our 8-year-old son Jayden was diagnosed with ADHD, and I like being able to watch what he’s up to in his room while I am out in the kitchen working, having my tea and snack.

The Willow has Pan/Tilt/Zoom, Levana’s 5” touchscreen monitor with temperature sensors, feeding timers, lullabies and an easy to use icon based menu.

With 12-hour battery life, the Willow has quickly become one of my favourites of all the monitors I’ve tried. Not only is the parent unit crisp and clear picture and sound but having a longer battery life for night time and during the day is one of the key features I look for when choosing a baby monitor. I don’t know about you, but I am not a fan of always having to plug my monitors in. I can watch Jayden hang out in his room and still have battery left when the younger boys head into bed at night, and this is something I strongly need in a monitor.

The Willow also offers a full recharge in 3.5 hours. Making sure I can take it with me around the house as I go! Being as big of a screen as it is I love having it beside me in my room too.

Key Features:

  • 5” Touchscreen
  • Remote Pan, Tilt and Zoom Camera
  • You can now increase your parental superpowers with a PTZ camera. Using the monitor from anywhere in your home you can adjust the camera horizontally 300 degrees and tilt vertically 110 degrees
  • 12 hour Battery Life
  • 12 hours of battery life in power save mode
  • Full recharge in 3.5 hours
  • Temperature Alerts
  • Check the temperature in your nursery from anywhere in your home and receive audible or on-screen alerts for anything outside of the temperature range you set
  • Customizable Feeding and Nap Timer
  • Timer lets you choose audio or on-screen alerts when it’s time to feed your baby or put them down for a nap. It will even remind you if your last feeding was on the left or the right.
  • Split/Quad Screen Viewing
  • Add up to 4 Cameras
  • View two or more of your little ones with split and quad screen options
  • Mix and match with fixed and pan, tilt zoom cameras for your best viewing experience
  • Lullabies, Nature Sounds and White Noise
  • Classic lullabies, soothing white noise and dynamic nature sounds played into the nursery and remotely controlled from the parent unit

The second camera we got we will set up when baby girl arrives. It came in a different box and is the same as the one that came with the actual unit.

The Willow can view 2-4 different cameras in a split screen. No more flipping between screens to see the different cameras set up – you can see all your cameras at the same time without missing a thing. This is something I’m looking forward to when our new bundle arrives April 1st.

With an added peace of mind I can get my work done, put my feet up and watch the boys in their room as they play, watch tv and their little sister joins them in their room. I have always been a big fan of Levana, but this monitor beats the other models I’ve tried!

If you are looking for a camera with a crisp screen, multi-function and the ability to add up to 4 cameras to a single screen the Levana Willow is one to check out! I highly recommend it and cannot wait to get full use out of it when we hook the 2nd camera up!

MSRP: $189.99 USD | $274.99 CAD
With Second Camera: $249.99 USD | $349.99 CAD

    Baby monitors have come a long way since I had babies. This one is definitely my favorite because of the pan, tilt and zoom features. It sure does add peace of mind knowing you can not only hear your baby, but you can see him as well.

    Baby monitors have come such a long way since my first child was born. I love that this has a portable color monitor, that makes it so convenient.

    Oh wow, I think I need one of these! I’ve always wanted some good cameras in the house. My kids are older, but I still like to watch what they are doing at times.

    My daughter has this and still uses it with her 4 and 6 year old, along with the two year old. She said it was the best gift she was ever given when the babies were born.

    I wish we would have had something like this out 31 years ago. I know these days there’s so many techy things out there can give you more peace of mind.

    I don’t have little children anymore, but I would be interested to get this Levana Willow for my mom. She is recovering post-op and is starting to show signs of dementia. She has a live-in caregiver and we are worried that if the caregiver is attending to something else, my mom might take some pills that she’s not supposed to take yet (She already did that once), or walk out of the house.

    Gosh baby monitors have come such a long way from when my oldest was a baby. She’ll be 19 in June. I used the same one with my youngest, and she’s 12! If I were to have a baby now, I’d totally opt for the video monitor. I can’t tell you how many times I tiptoed in the room, because I wasn’t able to see!

    Having a great baby monitor is essential. This one sounds like it’s packed with wonderful features that are useful for mom! This would be a perfect baby shower gift.

    This camera has so many more features than my old monitor. It has some features I would definitely love to have in a monitor especially that temperature feature.

    I love that baby monitors have videos these days and that it’s easy to use for the parents. This sounds like a must have especially for new parents! It has a lot of great features!

    I love video monitors. They really help to give you a little bit less baby time.

    A video monitor is a really amazing thing. I am so glad it is becoming more and more popular.

    Monitors have gotten so much better over the years. The one I had just showed glowing eyes and static.
