Reviews of top-rated Splitting-Screen Baby Monitor Brands (4.5/5+)
BabySense HD S2 5-inch Split-screen video baby monitor is our top pick in this 2022 list. This monitor features a 720 HD image on the large 5″ LCD display provides crystal clear, secure viewing. The exquisite remote control convenience with remote pan and tilt and up to x4 zoom, at a 960ft range.
It also has a long-lasting battery with a large 4000 mAh capacity that can be enhanced with the voice-activation (VOX) mode and can last for up to 10 hours. It can last for up to 20 hours on ECO/VOX mode.
Babysense brand has a number of non-Wifi baby monitor models that are rated very highly and have previously appeared in our ranking for best monitors without WiFi. I personally like and trust the brand and was very excited when I read of its release of a large 5-inch monitor with split-screen viewing. The 4.3-inch in costs about $150 and the 5-inch costs about $200.
Both the 5-inch and 4.3-inch monitors come with two cameras and have a range of up to 960 ft. which is decent or above the average of about 700 ft. range.
The resolution in the 5-inch is also 720p HD compared to non-HD (480×272) in the 4.3-inch option. The 5-inch option also allows you up to 4x zoom which the smaller, 4.3-inch option only has 2x digital zoom capability. If you can afford the extra $50 to buy this 5-inch option, I highly recommend it.

Babysense vs Moonybaby
The close contender, MoonyBaby has two brands, one with a 4.3-inch screen and another with a 5-inch LCD screen. If you choose to go with MoonyBaby, the 4.3-inch option (Moonybaby Split 60) is our top recommendation as it has a long battery life of 12 to 14 hours which is more than double that of the 5-inch (Moonybaby Split 50) with a battery that lasts for 6 to 8 hours.
In addition to the long battery life, the 4.3-inch Moonybaby above (Split 60) also has a super long range of 1000 ft., remote pan and tilt camera, 2-way talk, and a wide viewing lens.
Below is an image of Moonybaby Split 50 with a 5-inch LCD screen, 1000 ft. range, and battery life of 6 to 8 hours. Split 50 does not have remote pan and tilt cameras
Below is the MoonyBaby Split 55 with a 4.3-inch LCD screen, 1000 ft. range, 6-8 hours of battery life, and remote pan and tilt cameras
After careful review and comparison with Moonybaby, it’s a close contender, Babysense 5-inch LCD came top and is better than Moonybaby Split 50, Split 55, and Split 60, and all others in this list because of the following key reasons;
- Babysense has a far longer battery life of up to 20 hours in Eco mode and 12 hours in regular streaming (advertised by manufacturer). Customers have found it to last for 8 to 10 hours while Moonybaby barely lasts for 5 hours.
- Babysense has remote pan, tilt and zoom cameras that is only available in MoonyBaby Split 55 and Split 60.
- Babysense 5-inch has better zoom capabilities of up to 4x which Moonybaby’s has dismal zoom capabilities – could be improved
- MoonyBaby screens are non-HD with lower resolution compared to Babysense 5-inch LCD HD screen with 720p resolution.
- On split-screen mode, MoonyBaby does not display temperature alert and battery level, while Babysense displays those.

Here is what a parent, Andrew had to say about the split-screen feature:
Split screen and auto camera switching is great with 2 kids. The only downside is the speaker on the camera is on the bottom. It’s difficult to hear what is being said unless you prop the camera up to fully expose the speaker.Andrew, Jan 2019

10. Moonybaby 5-inch monitor: 2-camera Baby Monitor with Split-screen monitor
The Moonbaby WideView 50 baby monitor with audio and camera is one of the best baby monitors in the market. This is one of my best 2-camera baby monitors with a split screen monitor and the monitor comes with a 5” large screen display, temperature alert, screen split technology, and auto night vision mode.
11. VTech VM321-2
The VTech VM321 is a video and audio monitor that allows one to monitor every baby’s move from any room of the house. This monitor comes with 2 cameras making it a double baby monitor with split screen. With great features like secure transmission and talk-back, you can rest assured that your baby is sound and safe.
The VAVA Baby Monitor with Split Screen is the perfect way to keep an eye on your kids, even when they’re in multiple rooms. With simultaneous live visuals on a split-screen, you can rest assured that your little ones are always safe and sound.
VAVA’s design and build is great and it won the 2018 Red Dot Design Awards for Baby products at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES). You’ll notice that VAVA used quality materials to build the camera and the screen as they are sturdy and for stability, the base of the cameras are heavier with rubber mini-stands. The rubber makes them less prone to sliding off furniture or tables.
Installation was a breeze. The camera just plugs into an outlet and the parent unit which uses a rechargeable battery easily pairs with the dual camera to give you a quality no-delay stream. Unlike wifi baby monitors that experience a delay as a result of data transfer over the internet, VAVA uses a local network and there is literally no delay in transmission.
This device is perfect for parents who have twins or children in different rooms. With two simultaneous feeds, you can keep an eye on both of your little ones at the same time. Plus, the Dual Feed Baby Monitor comes with a built-in nightlight to help soothe your babies when they’re trying to sleep.
You never have to worry about losing connection with your little ones again with VAVA’s 900 ft. transmission range! Whether you’re in the next room or across the house, you can stay connected to them and keep an eye on what they’re up to.
No more messy wires! The freedom of no cords comes to your monitor with this sleek device. You can bring your screen with you as you move around the house – perfect for following recipes in the kitchen or keeping an eye on the baby in another room. Plus, our secure FHSS non-wifi transmission technology guarantees 100% privacy of your signal during transit to the parent unit.
With 720P HD security cameras, you’ll get crystal-clear visuals of everything happening in real-time.
Our top-of-the-line pan/tilt camera is perfect for keeping an eye on your busiest spaces. Whether you’re watching the kids play in the yard or keeping an eye on your pet, this camera has easy zoom, autofocus, and full angle mobility to ensure you get the perfect view. You can also utilize Vava’s 2x and 4x zoom options that give you the ability to get close detail without losing quality.
The Automatic Night Mode on the Vava Split-screen Baby monitor ensures that you can always see your baby, even in the middle of the night. Whether you’re trying to get a few more hours of sleep or just want to check in on your little one during their midnight feeding, this feature makes it easy to keep an eye on them.
The VAVA Baby Monitor with Split Screen gives you the peace of mind you need when leaving your little one at home. With up to 18 hours of audio-only mode and up to 10 hours of audiovisual mode, this monitor will keep you connected even when you’re not in the room.
Vava monitor with split-screen is expandable and you can connect up to 4 cameras and keep an eye on multiple rooms at once – perfect for large homes or busy families. With motion detection and night vision, you can rest assured that your home is always protected.
When you order VAVa baby monitor with split-screen viewing, you get 2 cameras, one 5-inch parent unit IPS display and one adapter. The cable is 192 cm.
The screen has 8 levels of brightness which enables you to adjust according to the level that is ideal for you at any time. For example, when it’s totally dark at night, you may want to keep the level of brightness at under 3. I have found level 1 or 2 to work best as you can clearly see your twins or multiple kids yet the brightness wouldn’t hurt your eyes.
To give you more flexibility to the audio output, Vava split-screen video baby monitor has 7 levels of volume which you can adjust to fit your preferred level that wouldn’t be too loud and can still hear the audio from your babies’ rooms.
The VAVA Baby Monitor with Split Screen is a great way to keep an eye on your kids, even when they’re in different rooms. With simultaneous live visuals on a split-screen, you can rest assured that your little ones are always safe and sound.
I got this camera because of its split-screen feature that enables me to see my kids simultaneously on the same screen but you can also choose to have the screen switch automatically from one camera feed to another every 15 seconds. The split-screen feature works when you have two cameras but switches every 15 seconds when you have more than 2 cameras. The sound/audio is only available on the active camera that you are currently viewing.
This screen-switch feature is common with non-split screen expandable cameras that you can set a particular time interval where the feed will switch from one camera to another. Infant Optics DXR 8 Pro uses this feature and switches automatically from one camera feed to another every 10 seconds. However, there are several time options that you can choose when setting the intervals to select.
Vava also has split-screen viewing and 2-way audio talk but you’ll have to choose the camera to talk through. It also has an alarm feeding function that you can set for 2, 4, or 6 hours depending on your baby’s feeding schedule.
When the alarm is set, it beeps 30 seconds before the set time and an icon will show on the screen to remind you that it is time to feed your baby. You can also customize the settings for each camera so that you can receive alerts when there is motion or sound in the room.
