 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.

Night Vision

The built-in night vision allows you to see your child, in complete darkness.  When the lights go out 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.

2

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.

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
