Infant Optics DXR-8 Video Baby Monitor

Manufacturer description

The DXR-8 Video Monitor by Infant Optics is the first baby monitor with interchangeable lens technology. Three separate lens types – Normal, Wide Angle (sold separately), and Zoom – allow you to choose the most suitable focal length and viewing angle for the specific environment, just like a professional camera system. Video is streamed in real-time to a compact 3.5″ LCD color display providing a crystal clear image. The DXR-8 is packed with a roster of advanced features for added convenience: remote camera pan/tilt, infrared night vision, talk-back function, room temperature sensor and more.
This camera is an investment that grows with your family. Use a close-up lens for intimate vision of your infant, and swap for a wide-angle lens when your child becomes more mobile to provide a full view of your child’s activity.



Normal setting using the Aluminum Lens Hood provides a crisp, clear image with mid-range coverage: close enough to ensure your baby is safe with a wide field that captures immediate surroundings.


2x Zoom Optical Lens is perfect for close-up viewing during sleep. Unlike digital zoom where software simulates an image to appear closer, the optical zoom effect does not deteriorate resolution or image clarity. Place camera far from your baby and still enjoy an effective close-up view.


Wide Angle Performance Lens (sold separately) captures the entire room, a full 170-degree view. Best for active babies and toddlers – they can play and explore and you can monitor them and their surroundings. Nothing will escape your notice.
