Babysense Video Baby Monitor With 3.5′ Screen
In early 2019, Hisense released Babysense video baby monitor with a larger screen compared to the earlier versions which had 2.4 inch screens.
Video Review of BabySense Video Baby Monitor with 3.5′ Screen
You may be wondering whether Babysense Video baby monitor is comparable to other baby monitors with Apps such as Arlo baby or Miku and I am sad to disappoint. Babysense video baby monitor does not have an app. Just like other non-wifi monitors such as Infant Optics DXR 8, Babysense uses FHSS transmission technology which enables the transfer of signals from the camera unit to the display unit of the dedicated parent unit. Although FHSS uses 2.4 GHz frequency band, it does not support unlimited-range signal transfer as the DSSS technology used by wifi baby monitors.

Babysense Camera – The Additional Babysense Video Camera
The Babysense add-on cameras are among the cheapest of all additional cameras of non-wifi baby monitors that BMC has reviewed. Some of the competitors of Babysense such as Infant Optics DXR 8 and Eufy Spaceview sell their add-on camera for more than double Babysense’s prices. Here is a link to V24US add-on camera and a link to V35US add-on camera on Amazon. A quick comparison indicated that the V35US model has a cheaper add-on camera as of July 2019.
The additional Babysense camera allows you to monitor multiple rooms or perhaps your twins in separate rooms at a relatively lower cost. In addition, the Babysense display units in both the V24US and the V35US models allows you to avoid multiple baby monitors or multiple screens when monitoring twins. That is why Babysense was among out top-rated baby monitors for twins, coming behind Axvue E632 and VTech 321-2, other dual-camera baby monitors that have split-screen viewing. It is important to note that Babysense does not have split-screen viewing feature and you need to manually switch from one camera to another. This is the only disadvantage of Babysense as a twins monitor.
You should also note that it is possible to purchase and use two parents units in with your Babysense. Both models allow you to purchase an additional parent unit making it easy for two parents to each have a parent unit if you sleep in separate rooms. Here is a link to the add-on parent unit on Amazon.

From the above comparative table, we can see that Babysense is better than Infant Optics DXR 8 in some features and Infant Optics DXR 8 is also great with some features. For example, if you intend to monitor twins, it is clear that Babysense takes a clear lead as it comes with 2 cameras and is significantly cheaper than Infant Optics. With Infant Optics, you can buy an add-on camera but it is relatively expensive.
Babysense Night Vision
Babysense video baby monitor with infrared night vision have received acclaim for night vision because of its infrared LED lights that enable Babysense cameras to capture clear images of your baby. It has automatic night vision feature with a range of 15 ft, comparable to Eufy and Infant Optics which have 13 to 16 ft. ranges.
Infant Optics DXR 8 is lacking in a few features such as:
- No lullabies
- Limited pan
- Limited range of 700 compared to 900 ft. (for V24US) and 960ft.(for V35US) of Babysense.
- Does not come with a wide-angle lens
Both non-wifi monitors have equal screen size and resolution but Babysense in lacking in the following feature:
- Manual pan and tilt. You have to manually adjust the Babysense camera to focus on the position you intend. Infant Optics’ cameras can be controlled and adjusted remotely to fit the required pan and tilt
In conclusion, I am very impressed with the performance and the reliability of Babysense as a non-connected baby monitor that does not rely on the internet. Although other baby monitors such as Infant Optics and Hellobaby may have a few features that make them better with some aspects of monitoring, Babysense is equally great and is cheaper.
