The baby monitor allows you to hear your baby and talk back
With a quick & easy 3 Step Set-Up with no PC required, all you have to do to activate your camera is plug it into power, connect to the internet with the press of a button, then simply scan the QR code on the back of the camera with your smartphone or tablet using the free downloadable BB101 App. Never before has it been such a breeze to set-up a wireless network camera. The QR code acts as the camera’s ID, and once you scan it, voila you’re instantly viewing live video right from your mobile device without the need of a PC!
Versatile and advanced the BB101 is capable of connecting to the internet over Wi-Fi with WPS. Connect over Wi-Fi with no hardwired connection to the router necessary, so there’s no need for an Ethernet cable as long as your router has a WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) function. The camera can detect and connect to your Wi-Fi network and start streaming video right away.
Conveniently choose to either record straight to your camera on a microSD card using the built-in video recorder, or record directly to your smartphone, tablet, PC or Mac with the free remote viewing applications for mobile devices, laptops and desktop computers. Using H.264 video compression technology to maximize recording space and conserve Internet bandwidth, enabling you to playback that captured footage on your device straight away.
This camera was built with a dual lens to deliver enhanced day imagery and excellent night vision observation. One lens is used specifically for day time operation providing a clean and colourful picture. While the other lens is solely used during low light conditions, with the image automatically switching to a crisp and clear black & white night vision. The camera features a powerful infrared LED that allows for viewing of up to 30ft away in total darkness. Be in the know at all times no matter what time of day or night.
Featuring dual motion detection technology with both Passive Infra-Red (PIR) and smart video motion detection. Alert accuracy is drastically improved, providing superior motion sensing that ensures more precise motion-activated recordings, push notifications and email alerts with snapshot attachments of the event sent directly to your device. The built-in PIR (Passive Infrared) sensor tracks heat from moving objects such as people or animals, while the video motion detection with customizable sensitivity levels catches all the motion that doesn’t generate heat and is also outside of the PIR sensor’s 20ft range. Instantly know if anything happens at your home, small business or vacation properties all at once!
Featuring a powerful built-in microphone that lets you hear what’s happening around the camera straight to your mobile device or computer. The LIVE BB101 also supports a two-way talk feature by connecting an accessory speaker (sold separately) to the audio jack, helping bridge the gap between the camera and the end user. Being able to talk to your camera from anywhere in the world is a great function to have. Whether you’re just upstairs in the house or traveling across the globe, you can calm your frantic pet or communicate with family members in the house with the press of a button!

I purchased the lorex iphone baby monitor a month ago and wished I had purchased it a year ago! I can see my little one anytime I want from anywhere! It's very comforting to see him sleeping and also know when he has woken up. It's also nice to be able to share with family members who routinely watch him as they always have a monitor built in to their phone. There are no problems setting it up, seeing my lo on the screen and hearing him. It's easy to set up another person on their phone also. Great product!
I was very pleased with the baby monitor . I originally bought it to keep an eye on my mother n law who lives with us and has alzheimers but recently took it on vacation with all the family and used it daily for the grand kids as they took their naps. It sync'd with the wifi very easily as we had to move it to different condo rooms daily . I have since ordered a 3 pack of these and as my son and daughter n law seems to have taken possession of my first one.

I liked the first one I bought so much that I got a second one for a better view of the room. It allows me to spy on my dogs when I am away from home and has confirmed what I always suspected........all are asleep except my Pomeranian that paces back and forth, whimpering. Not much I can do about it though. Just like knowing I can see them at any time. The temperature feature is very handy also. Have had no problems connecting using an iPhone. For approx. $50 this is a great buy.

For my initial set up I wasnt able to have the camera up and runing via wifi only. I have to connect via LAN and after a painful process of uploading new firmware it started to work.
Also I added my micro sd card and it started to record without the feature to delete all videos. Also it doesnt have a way to stop recording misisng essential features in the software and hardware.
Thank you for your feedback. Our technical support team will be happy to assist you. Please call us at 1-877-755-6739.

So far we have used this for the last 2 months and it has worked decently. Its sometimes hard to figure out if its the Camera or the router - luckily I had some spare routers in the house and figured out 90% of the issues were due to a bad wifi connection.
Sometimes disconnects and doesnt work randomly... but then goes back to working. For this reason I give it a 4/5
Have only had this product a short time. Was actually recommended it by my sister. Great baby monitor. No issues. Easy to set up and install. Love being able to have it on my iPhone and iPad!
Baby monitor works great!!!
I have had the worst customer service with Lorex. They kept transferring me from one department to another and I still haven't gotten my problem fixed. I won't get into the first part of it but I bought a camera I received a black one which I didn't mind I really liked it so I went back on to order two more however this time I got a white one. I called in spent 1hr in a half on the phone just to find out the first one was out of stock so they sent me a different model. I told the guy I wanted to return the other two cause they are horrible he stated he would send me a shipping label and wanted to transfer me again. I waisted my whole morning on the phone and never got my problem fixed. I tried going back online to see if I could order the black one but it doesn't have it. This company is horrible at customer service.
We apologize for any difficulty you experienced. Your original order was upgraded due to inventory. We were happy to process an exchange for you.

A very great little camera, has great features with night vision. It easy to set up and understand for any home owner with a proper internet connection. I will recommend this camera to anyone for a piece of mind to look after their home.

I purchased a baby monitor from Lorex and the battery stopped working. They replaced the battery but it stopped working again. Lorex discontinued production of this product so when I contacted them to replace it again, they were not able to. However, they replaced the entire system under warranty, including an additional camera that I had purchased for the first system, within a week. As a new parent I was very impressed with their quick and full response. It is good to know that Lorex stands behind their products!

Bought this for my first grandchild. Picture is nice and clear, sound is great. My daughter loves this. Loves the fact that she can check in on her baby from anywhere on her phone and as many devices as wanted. Also nice when the son in law is working night shifts,he can check in on the little bundle. :)
Just ordering equipment .I hope everything works well.
Love this camera so much I have ordered another to monitor another room. Easy to install, good quality picture and so handy to use right from your iphone.
This is a good product. But I was disappointed by knowing this product does not support DDNS (told by Technical support engineer).
Secondly the improvement I would like to see is 802.11a support (only support 11g which has lot of interference).
Picture quality gets pixalized even I have 50Mbps speed.
It was easy to set up and I love that it can connect to our phones, laptop and tablet. It has the clearest picture on the laptop. It's still really clear on the other devices though.
Easy to set up, quality is not soo good. but does the basic job!

Great technology and monitoring services available with this product. I highly recommend. Perfect for our first child.

many companies claim easy connect to the internet, Lorex Does it.
I have 5 cameras at 3 different rental locations. I can watch everything that goes on, on one screen. I have needed customer service once. They connected quick and knew exactly what to do..

This camera was very easy to set up. Took under 10 mins. Works great for me. Motion detection works great. Totally portable. I'm using as a back yard security system. I Liked this product so much I bought a second one. Can't go wrong with these cameras. I recommend them for all around security...great price too.

So far we have not been able to set up the camera. We had to call support and they could not get the camera to work so they are sending us a new one. Once we get it and get it working I will leave another review.
We ordered the lorex monitor as a baby monitor for our first baby & we couldn't be happier! Its perfect!
Setup was very simple and quick. It is a very nice camera, now I can see my baby from anywhere.

Very east to set up, but it is unclear on what settings will give you the best picture. From up close, the picture does look clear, when you are trying to see a distance sometimes it gets a little pixelated. The fact that it has night vision is a definite plus, but it does get blurry at night
This camera was very easy to set up. Took 10 mins. Works great. Motion detection and the sound alarm work great. I'm using as a baby monitor when my nephew stays over and as a dog monitor to watch my pups when I'm not a home. Love this product!
The monitor was extremely easy to connect to. Took less than 10 min to connect to my wifes iPhone n my droid tablet. Works great! Sound is good. The only reason I gave it a 4 star its because of the resolution. Its not the highest resolution, and even though you can change the options it is not the best by far. But hardly something to worry about considering some people buy just regular baby monitors without a camera that cost just as much.
We just bought this monitor and have been using it for a couple of weeks now. We LOVE it. It is simple and works great with all of our mobile devices.
I purchased this camera because the setup bypassed the Xfinity port configuration. The first camera took about 5 minutes. It worked so well, I purchased 2 more. I set up both additional cameras in less than a minute each. I added a speaker to one of them. Now my wife and I can view our 4 dogs while at work. For the money you can't buy anything better. It's a beautiful thing!

The setup is really easy and can be used on any device from anywhere
Location: Quebec, Canada
This camera is really as easy to install as they say! It works great when installed on the side of the crib. However, from a few feet away, the image gets too blurry for my taste in night vision.
I would love if the software had a Linux version, but it works great on my Galaxy player and in Windows.
I grow wary of certain reviews I see of products. I must say for all those who had issues setting up this camera "please insert brain before use". Works as prescribed. Motion sensor, PIR sensor, night vision, email notification and clear as day visual.
Got this baby after an attempt to break into my home. Let them try now the authorities will be on them before they know it.
I bought this for use as a baby monitor system. The hope was that I could use the video and audio monitoring features. The baby is not here yet, but I am not sure that the mic is going to be sensitive enough. We will see...
Still a great product!

Really good solution! We use the camera as a baby monitor. First setup was amazingly quick and simple. Can see my baby from anywhere now. I had a Dlink camera previously, pos compared to this one.
Good camera for the right application
I received this camera with some excitement. I have a baby monitor already and though the camera was wireless it has to be run via a dedicated network hub which is annoying. So I was quite excited about running this sleeker and more elegant looking wireless camera with motion detection. The plastics feel a bit light and cheap, but the camera doesn't look it. The mount/stand is made from molded aluminum and nicely curved which finishes off the look.
My first disappointment out the box was that it doesn't run on batteries and has to be powered by a powered USB port. Either from a device like a computer or a wall socket adapter. So it isn't THAT portable since it has to have an external power source of some kind in order to run.
Set up was dead easy if you have a modern wireless router often all the password info you need is on a label on the back or the camera can make use of the automated WPS feature if your router supports it.
The L-View software that comes with the camera is simple but effective and allows you to have up to 4 cameras running simultaneously. Your list of available cameras is on the right column which can be dragged to any of up to 4 windows on the screen to activate it.
The default quality is quite low at 64k 640x480 resolution at 5 frames per second. Quality isn't actually bad considering that the bandwidth being used is equivalent to your average mp3 music track.
A right click on the camera in L-View gives you a bunch of options where you can up the streaming quality and update to 30 fps in increments of 5. The motion sensor works very well as does the dynamic switching of night vision. I have a smallish house and the camera can see from the study across the corridor into the living room with no problem.
One disappointment is that unlike my other Lorex system, this camera does not work with skype and isn't recognized physically on the computer as a device. Only the L-view software can see it. This is good for security since it makes it harder to hack but does provide some limitations for those who want to make use of it as a general purpose web cam.
I installed the Lorex Ping software on my Galaxy S Android phone and it found and displayed the camera view straight away with no trouble whatsoever.
Overall this camera is ok, great if you want it for fairly portable wireless security security camera that works in the dark. The image quality is pretty decent considering that it's a standard low res by todays standard 640x480 or 320x240 pixels.
If you are getting if for the right application it is a decent camera. I would have liked to have had the option of viewing over skype like my previous Lorex camera. So not ideal in my particular situation.
Great Camera, Easy Setup
Really nice camera, setup could be done using your mob device only, QR code for setup a nice feature as well. Really like it, using a baby monitor.

It works, but was a bit of a hassle,
I got this camera from the Amazon Vine program because I'd never had an online security camera before. I'd like to say if I can get this thing to work, anyone can, but -- no, I've had a bit more experience with installing "devices" on a "network" than some, and I understand my router. And even so, it took me an hour longer than I think it should have.
Lorex also makes baby monitors, and other handy security camera setups, so I wanted to try this one hoping it would be simple. I saw on their website [...] that they even have techs to come set up whole systems.
I went to the website because I thought I'd failed getting the setup to connect to my wireless router, and wanted to find out how to blank the camera's memory and start over. I thought I'd gotten the camera to memorize the wrong passcode for my router. But that isn't what happened.
When I thought that is what had happened, I fiddled around on the website for quite a while, saw many tech support pages with the little thumbs-up/thumbs-down icons at the bottom. Lots more thumbs-down had been clicked than up.
I didn't find anything about what to do if it failed to connect to the wireless router either, no list of error messages, but finally thought of pressing the reset button on the camera which I'd noticed on the Quick Start instructions but forgot about. So I went to the camera to do that and found it had finally connected itself to my router. I hadn't made a mistake typing the passcode, and the camera hadn't crashed. It just took several minutes to find the router.
Any way you do it, the camera once on the network, will put pictures on a number of devices, your PC and/or TV. To get images to your phone, you'll need to download the Android or iTunes App Lorex Ping, and it has room for a number of cameras. To get your camera onto your Lorex Ping, follow the directions into the menus, and the phone's camera will take a picture of the QR Code on the back of the camera. That procedure needs some work by Lorex. When the camera comes on by itself during the procedure, it has a CANCEL button but no "take a picture" button to use when you get it aimed at the QR Code. It took a few tries and some puzzling, but eventually the phone's camera took the picture all by itself, without me poking anything on the phone's screen.
In my case, it did not. The directions explained the blue light would come on when it made the connection -- the three lights cycled and cycled, then went dark. Clearly it was searching for the wireless network, and failed. I repeated the sign onto the router steps putting in the passcode for my router, and again got an error message, FAIL on my phone, and the lights on the camera searched then went dark. I went through this several times, then went hunting for the Lorex website, as noted above. While I was searching for what to do about that error message, somehow the camera finally found the router.
When I went back to the camera to try the reset button, the blue light was on and steady. So I didn't fail, and the FAIL error message on my phone was an error!
So the two trouble spots in the setup procedure were getting the phone to take a picture of the QR Code, and getting the camera to find the router wirelessly. Both worked all by themselves without me doing anything except repeating the steps of the directions wondering why it wouldn't work.
I conclude that this piece of hardware works as advertised at least in terms of using a household wireless network to send a picture (and SOUND - not great sound, but real sound you can understand) to your phone. The configuration directions might be a bit hard for some people, or take patience and concentration, but the device itself is rather amazing for the price.
