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.
  • AC401 SensorPad

  • 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.
  • Following media coverage regarding a voluntary product recall in the United States and Canada, Angelcare would like to explain to all customers why there is no recall required in Europe.

    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.

    I first became aware of this complete unit 7 years ago when my son was born 3 months premature. I was living in America at the time and he received the best of care but was inevitably put on several monitors in the intensive care unit. He suffered many episodes of Apnea whilst in the baby unit which scared the living daylights out of me. Like most parents of preemies, I was extremely worried about how I would cope once he got home, with not having the monitors to rely on. After searching the internet, I found this unit and bought it immediately. At that time, it was well over £100.

    Unfortunately, my son developed Cerebral Palsy and has no speach. He is quaridplegic too. Without this unit, I would never have slept for fear of every parents nightmare coming true. Thanks to this unit, I could put my head on the pillow and managed a peaceful nights sleep, knowing my baby was safe and that I would be allerted if anything should happen. (We have had a couple of scares but thankfully the Angelcare monitor alerted us in time)!!

    We first used a moses basket with the sensor pad, then his cot and finally moved him into a full sized single bed. The sensor pad it situated in the middle of the base unit underneath the mattress and works perfectly. The pad is amazing, it works brilliantly with all forms of beds. Granted, my old Angelcare from the States started playing up 4 years after purchasing but I immediately bought another one from Amazon which had the new features this one has. My old one did not have the temperature gauge or the night light. However, to be perfectly honest, I think the sensor pad is far more important!

    As I stated in my review title, my son is now 7years old and we STILL use this unit.

    This is a great little piece of kit and has almost everything you would want in a movement and sound monitor. Being our first baby, we thought long and hard over our choice of monitor and in the end I think we picked the right product. As with everything there are features that are included in some products but not others and this one must lose a star for the lack of 2 way talkback functionality.

    That being said, the sound quality from the one way system is top notch. The sensor pad is also a really really good idea. I could sleep through a brass band playing at the bottom of the bed and one morning while I was snoring away, unbeknown to me, my partner lifted the child from the cot and brought him downstairs. After 20 seconds the alarm (similar to a smoke alarm noise) went off and I was outta that bed like a shot standing over an empty cot in a state of panic with a heart rate of about 180... Thankful for the false alarm, but also because the damn thing works!

    In a nutshell, the Angelcare does what it says on the tin and unlike some of the other reviews, it is quite easy to set up... if you read the manual.

    PROS:
    - Great sound quality
    - Multi channel/freq to cut down on interference from other devices e.g. wifi
    - Movement monitor is brilliant
    - Upper/Lower Temp monitor (alarm sounds when either is reached)
    - Choice of Sound/Movement/Ticking - all three or any combination
    - Nightlight
    - Volume control

    CONS:
    - No 2 way talkback
    - No built in lullabies
    - Docking station is a wee bit flimsy when device is docked
    - No audio-in Jack to connect MP3 player up (I'm getting picky now, but a well known competitor has this function)

    Hope this helps.
