    There are 2 from what I've found - they come with 1 monitor, and the option to add a 2nd.

    One is made by Motorola - MBP36 (Or theres a MBP41 sold exclusively by Babies R Us that's cheaper)

    The other is a VTech - Safe & Sound:

    -I'm not sure if this can pan or not?

    I think we're going with the Motorola, and then expand to a 2nd camera if needed.  The MBP33 might have the ability to add a camera, but you can't pan/zoom from the monitor screen, and that was important to us. We registered for it and put a side note that we were totally fine with these being used items.

    Edit: We decided on the Motorola based on reviews from Amazon for them.

  • I just looked up the VTECH one and it said if you are using both cameras and have it on split screen then you have no sound... kind of defeats the purpose.  ERRR....  I will check out the motorola one.

  • @Stowne101 - yea the Vtech one I read had bad picture quality - freezing etc.  The Motorola I think has this in the bag, but obviously money makes a difference, so the Vtech is more if you want something that "works"

    What PP's said, plus babies r us has their own brand with the option of adding a camera. You can also buy a non baby monitor camera that hooks up to any wifi device (phone, computer, ipad) - they are much cheaper and you can get two. The only downside is they don't have a parent screen. What we plan on doing is using a spare ipad we have (old generation we got for really cheap) as our screen, and then we can also check it from our phones wherever we are. The model we are registering for is a Foscam: 
    Foscam FI8910W Pan & Tilt IP/Network Camera with Two-Way Audio and Night Vision (Black),  and it's on amazon: 

    eta: It's $80 new, has pan/zoom, and two way speak.

  • We have a Summer Infant one. We had a camera in each room when our girls slept apart. You cant listen to them at the same time but can switch back and forth. I could hear my oldest DD when she woke up so the camera was more me keeping an eye on her for my peace of mind.
