If one wants a truly wireless intercom forget this intercom. Battery life is about 40 hours for the monitoring unit. I have put several sets of new alkaline batteries as well as lithium batteries in the monitoring unit. I have communicated with Chamberlain several times and they have shipped me 2 new units, but that didn't help with battery life. The receiving unit has an annoying hum. My previous Chamberlain units worked fine, but I got tired of hearing the BEEP before the sound that activated the unit. The only other solution suggested was buy an AC adapter. This is no solution since I don't have access to an electric outlet.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mobee Very disappointed - doesn't work often
This is a very simple unit. Problem is you have to speak very close to the unit, but not too close, speak loudly but not too loud and press the button with just the right amount of pressure to activate it.
What's worse, even though there were just two rooms separating them (less than 50 ft) they would frequently lose communication with each other and flash incessantly- very annoying to wake up in the middle of the night with a flashing blue light next to your bed.
Once signal is lost, it can be very hard to re establish. Because of the light flashing problem, batteries wear out quickly adding to the problem of losing signal.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mom247 too much delay required to talk and listen
We bought these units through Home Depot. The price and features seem amazing compared to other intercoms, but there are other Cons to this unit. It is not superclear, but we didn't mind that, There is a huge 5 second delay when you push the button to talk, use the VOX feature or even the Monitor Feature. You miss the beginning of what the person has said. Any kid under the age of 17 will never have the patience to use this intercom and refrain from yelling down or up the stairs. The Monitor feature is pretty useless compared to a $20 baby monitor. We are returning this unit and looking into BabyMonitors with a Talk Intercom Feature so there is not such a huge delay and miss hearing your kids' reply.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by brownsville5432 good product and loved the price.
This is a good product. I have four in my house and they all work well. Once I figured how to sync them they were ready to use. We just use them to call the kids upstairs so it is an ideal product for us. Best part is no cables to run or plug. The batteries are still working after a month.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie This is a great intercom
This intercom has been working great for several weeks now and my wife and I are grateful. Hope it keeps going just as it has been. So far haven't had to change the batteries.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Oakprk A Decent intercom for the price
The Chamberlain intercom works well. Much better than the Westinghouse units that use your power wiring. The only shortcomings are that it doesn't include 12 volt adapters, which are needed if you don't want to keep changing batteries, and the intercom doesn't have a paging feature.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Orcinus Best Intercom system I've seen
A very good and very flexible intercom system. Just remember to wait for the beep to start talking. 12 units in three buildings on our property and it works fine. Now we can also answer the door no matter where we are on the property as well as hear the doorbell. The security and privacy is great.
