Zmodo Sight 180 as Baby Monitor

Zmodo Sight 180 is an indoo camera that is most suitable as a baby monitor.


  • – log in from app on phone, iPad, or website from anywhere (the greatest feature EVER)
  • – home/away/sleep/awake mode customization
  • – user-friendly app (even for the babysitters)
  • – high quality imaging
  • – great night-time resolution
  • – motion detection lets us know when she’s moving around in crib
  • – anyone with a smart device can download app and have access to camera when shared


  • – app tends to force close and reopen every now and then
  • – initial set-up with router is a headache (not the fault of Zmodo, but still worthy to note)
  • – camera occasionally freezes – there have been a few time we thought our angel was asleep, only to hear her crying from her room and realize the image was frozen and the time stamp not moving.
  • – the LED lights for night vision are really bright. adjusting night vision sensitivity does nothing to the brightness of the LED lights.
  • – wish there would be a feature to turn camera on/off when not in use
  • – no way to customize motion detection (so many seconds before/after movement)
  • – Zmodo’s customer service is terrible – was on hold to chat for 1 hour with no response, Facebook message usually gets a response within a few days, and email response is as least a week
