If you have more than one baby or need to monitor babies in multiple rooms, Motorola split screen baby monitor brands are some of the best options available in the market. Motorola monitors are being sold by Binatone Global which owns the ‘Motorola’ brand for baby monitors and has more than 10 brands of mostly video baby monitors. However, not all of them have split-screen monitors and you have to be careful to get the ones with this feature.
Motorola split-screen monitors are among the top-rated brands we featured on our list of baby monitors with split-screen.
Split-screen vs Scan Mode on Cameras:
The Motorola video baby monitors in the list below have split-screen mode but there are other brands with what’s called ‘Scan Mode’. Basically, ‘Scan Mode’ will cycle through each camera one at a time in order to save battery power, while the split-screen will allow you to see multiple cameras at the same time. If you want to be able to see all your babies at once, then you’ll need a monitor with split-screen mode.
Reviews of Motorola Split-screen Baby Monitors
My overall best Motorola split-screen baby monitor is the MBP50-G2. It comes with two cameras and you can view them side-by-side or separately on the 5″ LCD display. You can also pan, tilt and zoom each camera to get a better view of your babies. You can view feeds from the two cameras once with their split-screen viewing feature.
Some other features include;
- Remotely control the cameras: You can remotely control the cameras to pan, tilt and zoom in or out.
- Digital zoom: 4x digital zoom
- Infrared LEDs for night vision
- Automatic black and white night vision
- Two-way talkback: You can soothe your baby with your voice using the two-way talkback feature
- Rechargeable battery in parent unit: This is great for when you need to move around the house with the parent unit
- Up to 1000 feet range: You can stay connected even if you are far away
- 5″ color screen: Large screen size for better viewing
- High sensitivity microphone
- You can add up to 4 cameras: You can buy additional cameras and add them to your monitor to view up to 4 cameras at the same time
- Batteries: 2 x AAA (Not Included)
While I really like the split-screen viewing feature to monitor twins or more than one baby, I also appreciate the secure FHSS technology that this monitor uses. It does not rely on wifi and can rest assured that your connection will not be hacked.
I also like that I can add additional cameras to the system and view them all at the same time on the large 5″ screen. The digital zoom is also a great feature to have.
My next favorite split-screen baby monitor by Motorola is the Motorola Halo+ which has both the split-screen viewing feature and the scan-mode feature. Unlike the MBP5-G2 above, Halo+ is a wifi monitor and uses the Hubble for Motorola app. This video baby monitor can be used locally using its handheld parent unit and on the app.
The Hubble app on your smartphone gives you a clear, real-time video feed of your baby’s room. The infrared night vision feature ensures you can see what’s going on even in the dark, and the 4.3″ color screen provides a crisp, clear display. The Hubble Baby Smart Sleep Assistant tracks your baby’s hours of sleep and feeding habits, so you can always be on top of their health.
The sleep tracker and assistant feature make this monitor ‘smart’ in that it utilizes advanced tech to give you deeper insight into your baby’s sleep and feeding habits.
Our third Motorola Baby monitor with a split-screen and 2 cameras is the MBP855 CONNECT-2. This monitor works without needing wifi or internet connection as it relies on 2.4GHz FHSS transmission technology that is hackproof.
It also comes with an ergonomic parent unit with a large 5-inch diagonal color screen. Other great features of this monitor include the 5 lullabies, room temperature display, 2-way talk, and its ability to expand and support up to 4 cameras.
If you are using split-screen viewing to see the camera feeds from your two babies, you can only hear audio from one of the cameras. You cannot hear both.
The range on this monitor is great as it can go up to 1,000 feet.
Next is the Motorola MBP855CONNECT with a split-screen viewing feature.
The Motorola MBP855CONNECT is an expandable digital baby monitor with 2.4GHz FHSS wireless technology. It works without an internet connection.
The ergonomic parent unit features a 5-inch diagonal color screen, two-way communication, room temperature display, infrared night vision, and five lullabies. The portable, rechargeable camera can be remotely panned, tilted, and zoomed, and also has a high sensitivity microphone. Out-of-range and low battery alerts are also included.
Q: Do I need to have wifi for the Motorola split-screen baby monitor?
A: No, you do not need wifi if you get a Motorola non-wifi brand such as the MBP50-G2. This Motorola split-screen baby monitor uses FHSS wireless technology.
Q:How many cameras can I add to Motorola Baby monitors with split-screen?
A:You can add up to 4 cameras.
