12 Problems with JouSecu Baby Monitors (Explained)

All electronics have faults and can have problems.

When it is your baby monitor it can be a little more concerning. Luckily, these problems can be fixed or made aware of at least.

In today’s blog, we will talk about JouSecu baby monitors and some problems that they might have. As well as some useful information on how to fix these issues.

JouSecu baby monitor

Camera Disconnects Unexpectedly

One major complaint about this monitor is that it disconnects unexpectedly, causing parents to miss important moments in their child’s development.

This is especially frustrating because it happens without any warning or notice from the device itself so you don’t know when it might happen or how long it will last.

You just have to wait until it reconnects itself again or reset the device.

False Alarms

False alarms can be very annoying as they will wake up everyone in the house including the baby. They also waste time and money as every time there is an alarm, someone has to go check on the child.

JouSecu baby monitors also have false alarms.

This is a common problem with any baby monitor. The best way to avoid false alarms is to make sure that you have a good internet connection.

If your internet connection is bad, then it will lead to false alarms. If you are using your mobile data or Wi-Fi connection, then it could be better than using an Ethernet cable.

It can also be caused by a number of other factors, but it’s usually because your child is moving around too much or has bad connectivity.

If this happens regularly, you may want to try using a device like the Nest Cam or Angelcare movement monitor instead.

These don’t require as much movement from your child to trigger an alarm, which means they’re less likely to go off accidentally during the night when your baby is sleeping soundly.

Unreliable Sound Quality

The sound quality depends on how well your internet connection is working and how far away the camera is from the monitor. If you want to get better sound quality, then it’s recommended that you buy a separate microphone and place it near where your child sleeps so that you can hear everything clearly.

This can happen for several other reasons:

  • If there’s too much background noise in the room where you’re placing your camera (like traffic outside).
  • If there’s a lot of interference from other wireless devices in the area (such as cordless phones).
  • If there’s something wrong with your internet connection (which is why we recommend using hardwired cameras whenever possible).

It is important for these types of monitors to have good sound quality so that parents can hear what is going on inside their home at all times without having to constantly call out for help or check in on their child themselves every few minutes without knowing exactly what is going on around them.

Phone Alerts Not Working

The JouSecu baby monitor offers a feature called “phone alerts,” which allows you to receive notifications on your phone when the camera detects motion or sound.

However, many customers report that this feature does not work properly.

This means that if your child wakes up at night and starts crying, you won’t be alerted unless you’re already watching the camera feed on your phone.

The app itself isn’t well-designed or intuitive to use, especially for parents who aren’t tech savvy. 

If you have a JouSecu monitor and it is not sending alerts to your phone when it detects movement, then it may be because your Wi-Fi network is not strong enough.

If this is the case, then you need to check that you have good Wi-Fi signal strength by using an app like Wi-Fi Analyzer or NetSpot.

If this is not the problem then make sure that you have installed the latest firmware update for your device by visiting the manufacturer’s website.

Poor Customer Service

Some users complain that they have not received responses from JouSecu’s customer service department when they have contacted them with problems or questions about their purchase.

Can Be Hacked

The JouSecu baby monitor is a wireless device that uses a 2.4 GHz frequency band. This is the same frequency that your WiFi router uses, therefore it is vulnerable to hacking.

If someone were to gain access to your WiFi network, they could potentially monitor everything going on in your home.

This issue has since been resolved by most manufacturers who have released patches for their devices so that they no longer allow unauthorized access.

However, if you own a JouSecu baby monitor it may still be possible for hackers to gain access even after installing these patches. This is because some manufacturers do not provide firmware updates for older models but rather require owners to buy new ones instead.

Battery Life Is Short

The battery life on the JouSecu baby monitor is pretty short compared to other models. The company claims that you’ll get about six hours of use out of each charge, but this will vary depending on how often you use it and what features you have turned on or off during that time frame.

Poor Picture Quality

One of the most common issues that you may have with your JouSecu baby monitor is poor picture quality.

This problem can be attributed to several factors, including:

  • A low resolution
  • A low-quality lens
  • A small screen size (even on high-end models).

The last point is particularly important because larger screens mean better visibility and therefore more accurate monitoring.

Slow Connectivity

If you’re having connection issues, try to take the following steps:

  • Reset the JouSecu monitor. Unplug it from the power outlet for at least 30 seconds and then plug it back in again.
  • Try reconnecting your monitor to another Wi-Fi network. If you have access to a different Wi-Fi network, see if that fixes the problem with your current one.
  • You may be experiencing connectivity issues because of your wireless router or modem. If this is the case, try resetting them and testing again after they’ve rebooted (turned off and turned on).

Short Range

The range of the monitor can be affected by the walls and other objects in the room, as well as by the type of walls in the room.

If your baby is hiding behind a couch or chair, they may not be able to communicate effectively with their parent on the other side if there are too many obstacles between them.

Likewise, if there are several rooms between you and your child’s room or if there are too many walls between each room, it may make it challenging for parents to hear everything that happens with these monitors.

Loses Connection

The JouSecu baby monitor can be useful and convenient, but it can also lose connection to the parent device if you are not careful. The baby monitor loses connection when either of the following is true:

  • The two devices are too far apart from each other.
  • There are too many electronic interferences.

It can also lose connection if you do not have a strong enough Wi-Fi signal where you are using it, or if there is too much interference from other devices on your network (e.g., someone else’s phone).

Sometimes Won’t Turn Back On

Sometimes the baby monitor won’t turn back on, and this can be a frustrating issue.

The first thing you should do is check the power adapter, your wall outlet or extension cord, or any other source of electricity that you might have plugged into. If all is well with those but your monitor still won’t come back to life, there are a few other things to check for:

  • Is the power button stuck down? Try pressing it again.
  • Did something get knocked loose during shipping? A loose wire in the adapter may have caused this issue.
  • If you’re using an extension cord (for whatever reason), could it be faulty? Try plugging directly into an outlet.

How Do You Reset a Jousecu Baby Monitor?

If you have trouble with your monitor, there are a few things that you can try to get the signal back. If you do not see any lights on your monitor or hear an audible sound, there is a possibility that it has lost its connectivity or power.

Here’s how to reset it:

  • Power Off Monitor
  • Remove Battery
  • Wait 30 Seconds
  • Reinsert Battery if necessary and Power On Monitor again

Where Can You Get a Baby Monitor Repaired?

If you are having problems with your baby monitor and don’t want to wait for JouSecu to fix it, there are a few things you can do.

Contact the company. If JouSecu has an email address or phone number on their website (you can probably find it in the footer), contact them right away. They may be able to help immediately or at least tell you what’s wrong with your device and what needs to be done for repair work.

Find a local repair shop. If there’s a problem with one of your devices that involves getting parts replaced or fixed from an outside source, this is usually the best way to go about doing that—especially if there aren’t any replacement parts available online through JouSecu themselves!

Finally: just buy new ones! While we’ve focused on some pretty common issues here, we’d like to remind everyone that these are only some examples of possible problems; many other issues could arise from poor quality control during manufacturing – so if nothing else works then consider replacing them altogether instead.

Why Is My Baby Monitor Saying No Signal?

The first thing to check when your baby monitor is saying no signal is to make sure the monitor is plugged in.

If it’s not, it won’t work at all—and if you have a battery-operated model, the batteries may be dead or low, meaning that they won’t transmit an image or sound either.

Once you’re sure your baby monitor is plugged in and powered up, check that the batteries are charged.

This will ensure that if there’s an issue with the cord being disconnected from an outlet that’s preventing power from reaching the device (or if there’s another issue with electricity), then at least you’ll still have access to audio/video via battery life as long as those last through naptime/bedtime hours.

It also helps for parents to know how far their home wireless network reaches so they can determine whether their video monitor needs to be closer than five feet away from its power source (which could be an uncomfortable distance away) or whether it will work just fine at 50+ feet away without any issues whatsoever!

Why Is My Baby Monitor Going Black?

You may notice your monitor going black. This could be a problem with the power supply or battery, depending on how long it has been going on for and what kind of battery you have.

If the screen starts to flicker and then goes black, this is most likely due to low power. Make sure that your batteries are fully charged, as well as any other devices that could be affecting the baby monitor’s performance (e.g., smartphones).

If it is still not working after this, try replacing the batteries with new ones or switching to another pair of batteries altogether if possible.

How Long Do Jousecu Baby Monitors Last?

The lifespan of a baby monitor varies by brand, but according to most estimates, you can expect the average monitor to last between three and five years.

That said, it’s important to take into account how often you use your monitor—if you only use it occasionally for vacations or overseas trips abroad, then chances are that it will last longer than if you were using it regularly as part of your daily routine.

Another factor in determining lifespan is the quality of the brand: more expensive models tend to be made with higher-quality parts than their cheaper counterparts—and therefore last longer.


So, is the Jousecu baby monitor a good monitor and easy to troubleshoot? We think the answer is yes.

The features are great and the price is right.

But if you do decide to go with this brand, be sure to purchase it from a reputable retailer like Amazon who will accept returns if it doesn’t work out for you. And be aware that they have been known to stop working after a few months of use, so we recommend getting an extended warranty just in case.
