FEATURES

FEATURES

ClearVu® Digital Wireless Technology

ClearVu® technology ensures outstanding image and sound clarity so that 

you can watch and listen to your child up to 450ft away. With Levana, you’ll 

never miss a moment.

Temperature Monitoring to Ensure Safety

Many studies indicate that your baby’s room should be between 61°-68° F (16°-20° C). 

This system is equipped so you can monitor the temperature in your baby’s room and 

know that they are always safe and comfortable.

Sound-Activated Vibration

This unique feature allows you to monitor your baby’s every sound without any loud 

disturbances.  Simply  turn  on  the  vibrate  function  and  the  parent  unit  will  vibrate 

whenever any noise is detected in your baby’s room.  

Night Vision

The built-in night vision allows you to see your child, even in complete darkness.  When 

the lights go down the system automatically adjusts to the level of light.  With 10ft of 

night vision range, the camera can be placed anywhere in your child’s room while still 

displaying a precise image of your baby.

Relaxing LED Night Light

The baby unit has a gentle night light that you are able to turn on and off from the parent 

unit. Turn the light on if your baby is getting restless to calm them and turn it off when 

your baby is asleep, all without going into the baby’s room. 

Five Soothing Lullabies

Choose from five different lullabies to sooth your baby to sleep. Turn lullabies on and off 

as well as change the song being played all from the parent unit with the simple push of 

a button. 

Voice Activated Control

Conserve battery power with VOX activation. You have the ability to adjust the level of 

sound needed in order for your monitor to turn on. Turn VOX up high if your baby is quieter 

or turn it down low at night, so you are only woken when your baby really needs you. 

Talk to Baby Intercom

Sooth your baby from a distance with the talk-to-baby intercom. With the simple press of 

a button you can let your baby know you are on your way to their nursery or simply talk to 

them until they fall back to sleep without having to go into his or her room. 

Rechargeable Monitor

When you’re not on the move, simply put your monitor on its base to recharge – no 

batteries required! Enjoy up to four hours of continuous audio and video monitoring with 

a fully charged unit.

FEATURES

LED Noise Level Indication Lights

The monitor has LED lights on it that light up to display up to five different 

levels of sound. This means you can turn the volume all the way down, 

relax and still know when and how much noise your baby is making. 

All-in-One Table Stand and Belt Clip

The table-stand also functions as a belt clip for ultra usability. With the table stand, place 

the monitor upright when you are in the same room or carry the monitor with you and 

still have both hands available by using the belt clip.  

Energy Efficient Power Adapter

The power adapters save you on power all while saving the environment. They are rated 

with a Level V efficiency standard which means they are 30% more energy efficient then 

other conventional power adapters.

Wall Mount on Baby Camera for the Best Viewing Angle

   

The camera can be wall mounted so you can easily view your baby in its crib as well as see 

all other parts of the nursery. 

24/7 Lifetime Live Customer Support

Our customer support team can be reached by phone 24/7 or by email and live web chat
