Indicators & Alerts

The eufy SpaceView pro indicates battery levels, signal range, and temperature on the display. It does not give an alert if the temperature is low, the battery runs out, or if you have exceeded the signal range.

The Infant Optics DXR-8 Pro on the other hand has an alert for low battery or if out of range. The temperature level is shown on the display but you cannot set a threshold to alert if you if the room temperature is not at optimal. The display also has a visual indicator of the noise level in the room when in standby mode which many parents have become dependant on.

Battery Life

The Infant Optics DXR-8 Pro comes with a maximum battery life of up to 10 hours on Audio-only mode and up to 6 hours on display-on mode. The manufacturer specifications do not clearly mention if this model has VOX mode programming, but we found from other sources that it does. Unfortunately, this has not helped enhance the battery life of the display by much.

Using this Voice Activated mode, the Eufy Spaceview Pro on the other hand has a maximum battery life of up to 30 hours on Audio standby and up to 12 hours on display-on mode.

The VOX mode turns on the baby monitor when a minimum sound level is triggered in the room. Since the screen only wakes up if a noise is detected in the room, the battery life of the display unit is greatly prolonged.

Display Size & Quality

The Infant Optics DXR-8 Pro comes with a 5-inch display screen and a 720p resolution which is better than the previous DXR-8 model which was at 3.5″. Most parents didn’t complain about the size of the display in the previous model, but a 5-inch display is quite basic on most baby monitors in 2021.

The Eufy Spaceview Pro also comes with a 5-inch display screen and a 720p HD resolution which makes everything in the room crystal clear for parents to view. According to the reviews, the display quality is excellent and free from complaints. One can see a better view of the room with the wide-angle lens attached to the camera without having the need to zoom on every part of the room to get a better look.
