We’ve reviewed three of Oricom's Baby Monitors to help you make the best decision for your new baby's nursery!

Oricom Baby Monitor Range Review

We’ve reviewed three of Oricom's best Baby Monitors to help you make the right decision for your new baby's nursery! The Oricom SC530 Digital Audio Baby Monitor is packed with features, the Oricom SC710 Digital Video Baby Monitor is the best all-around video monitor, and the Oricom SC850 Digital Video Baby Monitor has a motorised camera and is my top pick for twins or toddlers.

As a new parent, a baby monitor is probably on your checklist, so we’re going to answer some frequently asked questions and help you with that decision-making process. There’s a few questions you should ask yourself before you dive into purchasing a baby monitor and those come down to capability, longevity, and portability of the monitor.

Capability

In terms of capability, you should think about what type of use you’re looking for; audio, video, on-body monitoring, or a combination. You should also consider whether you want a closed-loop network or do you want to setup a wi-fi network with access from just about anywhere.

Longevity

With regard to longevity, you should consider your future; will you look to grow your family and therefore maybe want to add an additional camera down the track? And, will you continue using this as your baby transitions into a toddler, and you're going to want to follow them around their room?  

Portability

With portability, you want to think about where your monitor is getting set up, how far is your nursery away from where you’re going to be monitoring your baby - are you going to want to monitor your baby just at home, or while you're out as well - if so, you will need to consider a wifi solution.  
 

Oricom SC850 Digital Video Baby Monitor

This is my top pick if you’ve got twins, or if you’re buying this for a toddler. It features a motorised camera, and has the ability to add up to four separate motorised cameras. So, even if you have twins and a toddler, you can still look at everyone! The parent unit on the SC850 measures 4.3 inches so you're going to have good visibility which also includes auto-infrared for night vision. The camera features a 2x digital zoom available to you through the parent unit, and it also includes lullabies, connectors, and nightlight, and a room temperature display.
 

Oricom SC710 Digital Video Baby Monitor

Since the release of this video, Oricom have upgraded the SC710 to the SC715 - similar features include: baby friendly night vision, parent talk back, 5 soothing lullabies, digital volume control and the option to add up to four camera units to the system.
 

Oricom SC530 Digital Audio Baby Monitor

The SC530 is a cost-effective, yet feature-rich entry-level digital audio baby monitor. It features a starry-night light show and also includes 18 lullabies and white noises. For those who find video to be intrusive, this audio-only monitor is a great option.  

To recap, we’ve had a look at three different monitors available in the Oricom baby care range: the SC530 audio monitor, the SC710 audio and video monitor, and the SC850 motorised video and audio monitor. We hope this has helped you in the decision-making process for which baby monitor is going to be best for your nursery. If you’ve got any questions about anything covered, or any other monitors, or any other questions in general, leave us a comment below. BV x

The Oricom SC850 Digital Video Baby Monitor would be the perfect fit for our family as it has all the options and everything we are looking for in a video camera monitor. For example, the motorised camera is one of them! It’s great and not difficult to use as some can be. It would be the perfect fit for our family. And my baby!

The SC850 monitor looks amazing and it will for sure be amazing if we were able to win it! We currently have an Oricom monitor which was gifted to us however, the range isn’t good around our home and having a toddler, this motorised camera will be a treat!

We have a one year old and expected a baby boy. It would be peace of mind for us to ensure our newborn is sleeping well, the right position and warm enough. Also our 1 year old talks herself to sleep so I would love to see what she gets up to when we put her to bed. It would be absolutely amazing to win this as we wanted one for ages.
