Infant Optics released a standalone monitor or spare monitor unit that you can get without purchasing the other parts that make up the Infant Optics DXR 8 baby monitor such as a camera.

As of this update, it is the 32nd best-selling baby monitor accessory on Amazon as shown in the snapshot below:
Other competitors of Infant Optics such as Eufy Spaceview do not have a replacement or an additional monitor/parent unit/monitor only. In other words, you are unable to stream videos to more than one parent unit with Eufy, a feature that Infant Optics DXR 8 now allows you to.
