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.
