The display or the parent unit of the baby monitor can be obtained on Amazon or on retail outlets such as Walmart and Target.

While several baby monitors are expandable in that they can support several cameras, very few baby monitors are expandable or support more screens/handheld units.

You can purchase Infant Optics replacement monitors for both the old Infant Optics DXR 8 or the newer Infant Optics DXR-8 Pro models on Amazon.

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.

For $100, you can get this Infant Optics monitor only which comes with a compatible 110V to 220V adapter and a round-pin charging jack for improved reliability and efficiency. This replacement parent unit is NOT compatible with older versions of Infant Optics that used micro-USB power adapters.

You should also note that the current Infant Optics DXR 8 camera does not pair with more than one screen unit of Infant Optics DXR 8. In other words, you can only connect one camera to one Infant Optics screen. Read more about Infant Optics screen switching, scan and split-screen guide. Tip: It doesn’t support split-screen viewing.
