In this post, I have provided a detailed analysis of Vava Baby Monitor vs Infant Optics DXR 8 and Vava Baby Monitor vs Eufy Spaceview Baby Monitor.
In summary, Infant Optics DXR 8 Pro excels better than Vava, Eufy Spaceview, and the older Infant Optics DXR 8 when you consider the videos, images, battery life, transmission range, and warranty.
Let’s start with Vava Vs Infant Optics:
Vava Baby Monitor Vs Infant Optics DXR 8 Vs DXR 8 Pro
Vava, Infant Optics DXR 8, and Infant Optics DXR 8 Pro use superior hack-proof FHSS technology that does not rely on Wifi connections. Vava, however, has a more superior IPS display screen that is comparatively better than the 3.5-inch screen of the older DXR 8. Both Vava and Infant Optics Pro have comparable 5-inch screens with Infant Optics Pro using an LCD screen (unlike VAVA’s IPS screen). IPS screen is supposedly better than LCD but not by a significant margin.
Vava is far much better when battery capacity and storage are considered. Vava, Infant Optics DXR 8 and Infant Optics DXR 8 Pro use rechargeable batteries and Vava has the longest battery life of almost double that of Infant Optics. Vava’s battery storage capacity is very large 4,500 mAh which lasts for up to 24 hours on eco-mode. This is in comparison to the 12 hours you can expect from the latest Infant Optics DXR 8 Pro and 6 hours you can expect from the older Infant Optics DXR 8.

In summary,…
It is important to note that Amazon banned products sold by VAVA on its platform after an investigation found that VAVA was giving incentives to customers – $35 gift cards – in exchange for positive reviews of its products. VAVA’s ban has not been lifted and it might be a lifetime ban as indicated on Amazon’s terms of conditions. At the time of the ban, VAVA Baby Monitor had accumulated a 4.7/5 rating by 6000+ customers but considering that the reviews may have been manipulated through incentives, we are revising our recommendation to reflect our trust in Infant Optics DXR 8 Pro, an American company. Infant Optics is a brand that has sold over 1 million units of reliable and durable video baby monitors and has won great customer service awards. VAVA monitors are now available on their website.
Amazon banned similarly large Chinese sellers Aukey and Mpow last month, reportedly after pressure from the FTC. https://t.co/VgYnQjIoUW— nic nguyen (@nicnguyen) June 16, 2021
On October 2021, VAVA’s original baby monitor was rebranded and released on Amazon under a different name – Hipp Baby Monitor.
Let’s continue comparing these two brands, VAVA vs Infant Optics.
Considering range, Vava and Infant Optics DXR 8 Pro have a range of 900 ft and 1000 ft, respectively, and they both have better signal reception compared to the older Infant Optics which has a range of 700 ft. Infant Optics DXR 8 Pro has superior zoom settings of up to 6x while Infant Optics DXR 8 has only a 4x zoom option and Vava has 2x and 4x zoom options.

Conclusion: Incentivized feedback/reviews aside, the VAVA monitor will give you superior images and video feed of your baby with its IPS display. In addition, VAVA has a longer battery life, and an accurate in-built thermostat compared to the older Infant Optics XDR 8. Compared to the older Infant Optics DXR 8, VAVA baby monitor is a clear winner but we highly recommend the new Infant Optics DXR Pro over VAVA.
I would pick Infant Optics Pro over VAVA for many reasons with the main one being the voice-activation feature. VOX Mode enables the monitor to go to sleep when your baby is quiet/asleep and only transmits the footage when the baby’s voice threshold reaches a certain level – like when your baby cries. This reduces the electromagnetic radiation in the nursery while increasing battery life. Infant Optics Pro also comes with an improved 1000mW speaker and has a better signal transmission range and generally better reception. In addition, it has an active noise reduction feature that filters out background noises so you can hear your baby more clearly. You also get up to 24 months of warranty with Infant Optics DXR 8 Pro compared with 12 months for both VAVA and the older Infant Optics
On the other hand, Infant Optics DXR 8 has been around for some time and has gained a reputation as a reliable brand with an interchangeable lens and the monitor has several accessory parts available -in case you need a part replaced. You can get a replacement monitor if you break the screen and can also get replacement cords and can rely on their great customer support. Vava does not have a replacement screen and you may have to purchase the whole baby monitor system if you break the screen and are out of warranty.
Eufy Spaceview Pro vs Infant Optics Pro
Infant Optics DXR 8 Pro has a number of superior features compared to the Eufy Spaceview Pro baby monitor. First, there are similarities between Eufy Spaceview Pro and Infant Optics Pro;
- Both have 5-inch LCD screens but no split-screen viewing and both can pair up to 4 cameras. They both have 720p HD resolutions.
- Both have a range of 1000 ft. (the older Infant Optics had a range of 700 ft. and the new version has improve connectivity range – more than 50% improvement)
- Both are voice-activated and have two-way talk
- Both use hack-proof FHSS technology to transmit signals.
- Both turn on night vision mode automatically
Here are the differences between Eufy Spaceview Pro and Infant Optics DXR 8 Pro;
- Infant Optics Pro has an active noise-reducing feature that enables you to listen to your baby’s clear sounds, a feature that Eufy lacks.
- Infant Optics Pro has double audio power with an improved 1000mW speaker for louder and clearer voice, while Eufy has a regular speaker
- Eufy Spaceview Pro comes with 5 pre-recorded lullabies which Infant Optics Pro lacks
- Eufy Spaceview Pro has a wider cover with a pan of 330 while Infant Optics Pro has a pan of 270. Both have the same tilt of 110 degrees.
- Eufy Spaceview Pro has a longer-lasting battery (10 – 12 hours) compared to Infant Optics Pro (about 8 hours). However, you can purchase a power bank for Infant Optics which can extend battery life by another 24 hours.
- Infant Optics Pro has better zoom capabilities, up to 6x total while Eufy has 2x
- Infant Optics Pro has up to 24 months of warranty while Eufy only has 12 months. To clarify, you only get 12 months warranty from Infant Optics but can get an additional 24 months if you register your warranty – total of 24 months. That tells you that they really trust their brand to last that long. Furthermore, they have excellent customer support.
- Infant Optics has replacement parts such as the monitor but Eufy doesn’t. However, both have add-on cameras.
Overall, if you can pay additional 30+ dollars, I highly recommend Infant Optics Pro. You can check the price of Infant Optics Pro here and for Eufy Spaceview Pro here. You can also read my full review of Infant Optics Pro here
Vava Baby Monitor Vs Eufy Spaceview Baby Monitor
The upgraded Eufy Spaceview is comparatively cheaper than VAVA baby monitor by about $50, yet it has superior features such as a large 5200 mAh battery capacity compared to VAVA’s 4500 mAh battery capacity. On battery life, you can expect 2 models of Eufy Spaceview to last longer for up to 30 hours compared to Vava’s 24-hour max. Eufy also has a wider pan of 330 degrees and a bigger tilt of 110 degrees compared to VAVA’s 270 degrees pan and 108 degrees tilt.
Eufy also has 5 pre-recorded lullabies that you can play your little one while VAVA doesn’t have lullabies or white noise.

|Allow you to Pan the lens to 270° and tilt it to 108°.||It allows you to pan the lens 330° to see corner-to-corner and tilt 110° to see floor-to-ceiling.|
Both Vava and Eufy Spaceview baby monitors are expandable baby monitors that come with large 5-inch screens and utilize high-quality 720p resolution. However, Vava baby monitor uses IPS display technology while Eufy uses inferior LCD display technology.
Vava also has better zoom capabilities with 2x and 4x options compared to Eufy’s 1.5x and 2x options.
On the transmission range, Eufy Spaceview baby monitor’s transmission range is longer than VAVA’s transmission range by 100 ft. Eufy can transmit up to 1000 ft. compared to Vava’s 900 ft. range.
Considering battery life, cost, pan and tilt capabilities, transmission range, display, and screen sizes, it is evident that Eufy Spaceview gives you more value than VAVA baby monitor. However, If you are looking for a reliable non-wifi monitor with a superior IPS display, Vava baby monitor might be the best option for you.

Why It’s In the Top 10 Best-Seller List (Pros)
Over 500 parents have reviewed this baby monitor on various retail sites and what you notice are stellar 5-star reviews that praise it for various reasons. Here are what stood out as we researched what’s great about Vava video baby monitor:
#1. High Definition IPS Display
Vava baby monitor displays in a large 5-inch screen that uses IPS monitor technology best suited for color-critical professional applications
Unlike several non-wifi baby monitors that use LCD display, Viva displays in high definition IPS monitor. In our reviews here at 10BabyGear, only Eufy Spaceview has a similar large LCD screen that displays 720p HD videos. Most of the other non-wifi monitors such as Anmeate, Campark baby monitor, UU Infant, and Hellobaby display in Video Graph Array (VGA), a technology developed by IBM in 1987 and with a resolution of 640 by 480 pixels.
Vava uses IPS display with IPS standing for an “In-plane switching” screen that has crystals aligned in parallel to ensure it produces rich colored colors. One of the major advantages of Vava’s IPS monitor is its outstanding accuracy and color consistency in all available viewing angles.
Below is an image of the Vava baby monitor displaying on its large IPS screen.
Unlike LCD display or Liquid Display Panels which embraces a thin layer of liquid crystals between layers and electrodes, IPS ensures uniform pixelation of images virtually eliminating color contrasts.
#2. Wider Field of View
Unlike other high-rated baby monitors such as Infant Optics which require an extra lens to cover a wider area, the Vava baby monitor can cover up to 270 degrees pan and up to 110 degrees tilt. This is very wide and considerably better than what you can find in the market for less than $200.
#3. Hack-Proof Technology
Vava baby monitor uses FHSS transmission technology that operates in the 2.4GHz frequency. The FHSS stands for Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum and it was invented in 1941 by Americans. During the Second World War, FHSS powered secret communication with the Allied Forces and it was not until the 1990s that the technology was used to power devices such as baby monitors. FHSS transmission assures 100% privacy as the signal hops from one sub-frequency to another from a selection of over 70 sub-frequencies that Vava baby monitor uses as it transmits audio and visual signals. You can rest assured that your baby is safe when using this baby monitor. Like all other hack-proof baby monitors we’ve reviewed, Vava baby monitor has limited interference and minimal jamming.
#4. Long Battery Life and Replacement
In our reviews, only a few other baby monitors such as Willcare surpass 20 hours of battery life. I was very impressed to learn that Vava actually lives up to the claim they’ve made in the marketing materials that its battery life can last for up to 24 hours on standby mode! Stand-by mode is when it only transmits sound. It uses a large-capacity storage battery with 4500mAh.
Some parents have seen it go for 15 to 18 hours on standby mode. That’s almost a full day of monitoring. A few parents actually commented that they’ve seen it do two days!
When asked about the Vava baby monitor replacement, the Vava support team had the following to say:
Considering the most baby monitor may die after a year because 1000 mAh can’t last more than one year, VAVA uses 4500 mAh, the longest battery life of baby monitor on the market and can last for up to 24hrs audio-only.
#5. Decent Warranty Period
In addition to the $30 coupon that you get if you purchase Vava baby monitor on Amazon, this baby monitor also has 12 months free warranty.
Compare Vava with other baby monitors such as VTech that offer as little as 3 months warranty and you get to appreciate that Vava is very confident in this baby monitor. With a warranty period of up to 12 months, you can get to replace your Vava baby monitor if your Vava baby monitor night vision stops working by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
#6. Ease of Use and Variety of Features
Vava is among the easiest baby monitor you can find in the market and over half of the reviews we aggregated as we did our research pointed out how easy it was to use this baby monitor. The screen unit, which is among the largest, is very intuitive with icons showing several helpful shortcuts for features and functionalities such as temperature, night-vision mode, time, battery bar, alarm, mute feature, 2-way talk feature, zoom levels.
The alarm function allows you to set reminders in 2, 4, or 6 hours and I personally used it mostly when my baby was taking short afternoon naps. My baby usually sleeps from around 3 to 5 pm and If I have to leave the house I make sure that I set the 2-hour alarm so I am back before the little one wakes up. When it starts ringing, it beeps for 30 seconds and goes quiet for another minute if I don’t press any key. It does this three times and can start being annoying if you’re not a fan of alarms.
The fact that the screen is bigger than the screen of my iPhone makes it very easy for me and even my parents to use it when they’re visiting.
Vava Baby Monitor Cons
#1. Night vision:
Similar to most non-wifi baby monitors, the night vision mode can at times fail to switch from a low-light condition to a full-light condition, making it display only black and white images. The reason is that Vava baby monitor has a sensor that automatically turns on night vision mode. This feature is great but make sure you follow all night vision guidelines to ensure that it’s working correctly. Vava baby monitor has 12 high-intensity infrared LEDs, more than Infant Optics’ 8 infrared LEDs and it should work correctly if used well. It, however, has a shorter night vision range of 6.5 feet, less than Infant Optics 15 ft night vision range.
#2. Volume Not Loud Enough:
Some parents complained that the noise is not loud enough and one parent specifically mentioned that it fails to wake her up. Make sure you crank up the volume using the button on the parent unit.
If you placed within proximity with another device that uses 2.4Ghz frequency such as the router, it can lose connection easily due to interference.
#3. Too Bright Night Vision LED
The night vision green infrared LED light is visible to the baby and may make keep your baby up at night. Night vision cameras use infrared light to illuminate on your baby and most cameras are required to have the infrared to be invisible. Unfortunately, some cameras including Vava’s do not have a completely invisible infrared LED light
#4. Vava Baby Monitor Split Screen:
Vava baby monitor does not support split-screen viewings like Moonybaby video baby monitor and the recent Babysense monitor with split-screen viewing. Vava baby monitor, however, supports full-screen viewing but it scans multiple cameras automatically every 15 seconds. It supports up to 4 cameras that can be connected to the monitor/screen at the same time.
VAVA Baby Monitor with Split-screen is comparable to Babysense 5-inch Baby Monitor with split-screen viewing and ideal for monitoring twins. Both VAVA and Babysense are non-wifi video baby monitors with a 5-inch display and quality night vision. However, Babysense is cheaper than VAVa by close to $100 and is voice-activated, a feature that I really like as it lowers emf emission and lengthens the battery life.
#5. No VOX Mode
Despite being advertised as a voice-activated baby monitor, Vava does not have a VOX mode. The screen is not activated based on sound. The sound is always on. There is a light indicator if the baby cries but the screen doesn’t turn on.

For this reason, we only consider online reviews after they have been vetted by our team of experts.
If you are a parent who has used a product that we are interested in reviewing, we would love to hear from you! You can contact us at naomi.lam@motherhood
