The PortaCam Video Monitor has a modern look and feel with a large, 2.4" crystal clear screen and bi-directional viewing. This "go anywhere" monitor can be placed on a dresser, mounted on a wall or positioned on a table wherever baby is napping or sleeping! And it's screen functions like many cell phones today - the picture flips to either horizontal or vertical presentation on the receiver. A Digital Clock and Nap Timer are added conveniences for mom as well as the bright sound lights (on both sides of the receiver!) which allow mom to see and hear baby's call wherever she is. This monitor has high quality, clear sounds and images and includes rechargable batteries with a docking station for the camera, plus rechargeable batteries in the receiver as well. Both units can by AC powered too. Buttons on the receiver are made to have really simple/easy function interface so mom can easily use the monitor. All plugs are energy saving because they don't draw current when the units are off.
