It's tough being a parent. You can't help but worry about your baby, even when they are sleeping soundly, but Angelcare can help remove some of that concern with the AC401 baby monitor. This 2-in-1 monitor detects sound and movement, perfect for first-time parents or those with more than one child sleeping in a room.

The Angelcare AC401 2-in-1 Movement & Sound Baby Monitor watches over your baby when you can't, picking up even the most subtle of breathing movements. The combination of two frequencies and eight channels provides crystal clear transmission and optimal privacy. The portable LCD colour parent unit clearly displays the temperature of the baby alongside the activated features.

Features include temperature control, an out of range indicator, and the optional 'tic' sound feature which reassures you that the breathing movements are being monitored. The recognisable Angelcare halo on the nursery unit also acts as a soothing nightlight, allowing you to check on your baby with minimal disruption. The monitor can also be mains or battery operated.

Features and benefits

  • Under-the-mattress SensorPad: The SensorPad monitors all your baby's movements, even the slightest ones. An alarm will sound if no movement has been detected for 20 seconds, and it features variable sensitivity settings. The SensorPad can be used with most baby mattresses, however it cannot be used with memory foam mattresses or mattresses with hollow frames.
  • Crystal clear transmission: Enjoy crystal clear sound transmission with eight channels.
  • Portable and rechargeable parent unit: Clip the small portable parent unit to your belt and monitor your baby on the go.

  • Temperature display and control: The temperature in the baby's room is monitored and displayed on the parent unit, and an alarm will sound if the temperature is too high or too low.
  • Volume control and vibration alert: Adjust the sound levels to suit you, and monitor your baby even with the sound off in vibration mode.
  • Full colour digital display: The colour LCD screen on the parent unit clearly displays a number of monitoring features, so even if the sound is off you'll know what's going on.
  • Hold and mute: The sound and movement alarm can be temporarily deactivated, helpful for example if you need to feed or change your baby.
  • Voice-activated sound monitoring: The Angelcare system monitors by using voice-activated sound monitoring. Microphone sensitivity is adjustable, so you can hear all sounds in baby's room or just when baby cries.
  • Audio 'tic' feature: The optional 'tic' sound feature reassures you that the monitor is working even when your baby is sleeping silently.
  • Nursery nightlight: The halo on the nursery unit acts as a soothing nightlight which allows you to check on your baby with minimal disruption.
  • Batteries or mains-operated: In case of power failure, the monitor reverts to batteries automatically.
  • Out of range indicator: The out of range indicator function will advise you when the two units are not communicating with each other. Out of range situations can be caused by distance or by physical interferences.

    What a task finding baby monitors is!!!! I did so much research but I really feel it paid off with this monitor. Firstly, who the hell needs a monitor with video? It's just insane to assume that you'll sit there all night looking at a 3 inch screen when you might as well just stand by the cot all night. The Angelcare saves you on this one because the movement sensor pad will tell you if there's something you need to deal with quickly. I was worried about false alarms, but after 3 weeks of using this we've not had one false start. I even ran some hardcore tests where I literally just stroked my fingers over the surface of the mattress and this thing picks it up. I then got paranoid and thought if it was this sensitive then surely it might mistake someone playing music loudly downstairs for heartbeat movement in the cot, so I did some jumping up and down next to the cot and it didn't pick that up - perfect, despite how dumb I looked at the time!

    The handheld is nice and slick with a good user interface and shows the room temperature (not that I pay much attention to room thermometers - you know if it's too hot for crying out loud). It also doesn't contantly monitor the audio (which in other monitors means you sit in your living room listening to static hiss all night). This is clever by only playing audio when it detects baby crying. If the baby stops crying it will leave the audio channel open for a minute afterwards. You can also set alerts for if the temperature drops below or goes above a certain point (which you set yourself).

    This morning our 7 week old daughter was sleeping in her cot, and the alarm went off. We both legged it upstairs and resuscitated her. I honestly believe this device just saved my daughters life, and can't recommend it enough.

    Excellent monitor clear sound and not on all the time which is good just clicks on when baby makes a noise. Only downside for me was that to use the movement sensor you need a piece of board for underneath the sensor and until you unpack and read the instructions properly there is nothing telling you this.

    We have been using this product now for 3 months and have used it in both the moses basket and in our babies cot.
    The monitor is honestly great and the sensor pad along with beep on the parent unit is very reassuring to anyone.
    It is a must buy and worth spending a little more on.

    We haven't had any issues with this until tonight!
    It is very warm tonight so I have both windows in my babies room open and decided to put a fan in there for some extra cool air.
    Due to the warmth my son was very restless, after a short time I went in to give him some comfort and picked him up. After about 30 seconds I realised I hadn't heard the very LOUD warning siren from the monitor to let me know there was no movement inside the cot! I went back over to check i hadn't turned it off when I picked him up. No I hadn't, it was still on and somehow still sensing something!

    The only thing I could think of was the fan in the corner of the room. I decided to turn it off to see if it would make a difference, sure enough 10 seconds later I was greeted to the siren alerting me of no movement, I reset it and turned on the fan again to make sure this wasn't a one off, sure enough same happened again!!

    With the fan on in 2 different positions within the room it gave a false reading to the sensor pad and made the monitor think that there was movement when he wasn't even inside the cot.

    Now i am not saying this will happen with all fans but please reassure yourselves and check.

    I will definitely continue to use this great product but I will be remembering not to put a fan inside the room again with the monitor on.

    When my daughter was first born i didnt have a movement baby monitor as she slept in a hammock and it simply wouldnt have worked.

    When my daughter was about 4 weeks old she just stopped sleeping on her back (i think due to tummy craps/colic)....after 2 nights of virtually no sleep and becoming one exhausted and teary mummy. I laid her to sleep on her tummy on her mattress (on the floor), with me next to her and we slept soundly for 2 hours :-)

    A lot of people told me that it wasnt right and a few family members became totally obsessed by my daugher sleeping on her tummy and not her back "like she should be"...this made me one very paranoid mummy so i decided to invest in the baby angelcare baby monitor.

    It has been a god send, its has allowed me to sleep stress free knowing that any risk of anything sinister i would be alerted of within seconds and it DOES work!!

    Have we had any false alarms? Yes...once maybe when she was small she was in a cot bed and she rolled off the mat as it wasnt fully in the middle of the cot and a few times since she has been a bit older and much "free'er" in movement she has moved into a ball at the end of the bed...but mainly no problems at all...AND it definately works as i often forget to turn it off when i take her out of bed to be reminded within seconds by the alarm.

    My daughter is now 18 months and i still use it everyday and I will continue to do so until she knows how to turn it off herself. In fact I am just about to purchase the movement only sensor for my 2nd baby that is due in 10 weeks as they are sharing a room I will only need one handset so for me there is no point in getting the sounds and movement one.

    My SIL has the angelcare AC1100 and raves about that but as we have a flat there was no need for that one really but i have seen it and it looks very good.

    Overall a very good buy and I would highly recommend.
