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.

    Read a few reviews of this product before buying and I have to say I'm puzzled by some of the comments by others that it's too complicated and the instructions are not clear. Maybe the manufacturers have made some changes, because I found the instructions perfectly clear and the product is easy to setup and use.

    Some people have said that the sensitivity dial on the back of the base unit for the movement sensor doesn't specify whether 1 or 5 is more or less sensitive - it's in the instructions (1 is the least, 5 is the most sensitive, funnily enough). One guy complained about having to put up with the ticking noise the hand unit makes every time it registers movement - it's clear in the instructions how to turn that off (he also complained that without the ticking noise he'd have to watch the little pendulum on the display all the time - talk about missing the point!!).

    This product has worked perfectly for us now for 4 months and gives us tremendous peice of mind. I'm not saying that it will prevent cot death - there's no statistical evidence that movement sensors do - but our baby is a very quiet sleeper, so it's so reassuring to just open my eyes and see the little green light blinking on and off, even when she's so still. We've only had a couple of false alarms, and even then it only gave the initial single warning beep before movement was detected again. I didn't even bother adjusting the sensitivity as it's good to know it's right on the line.

    The range is great - I've taken the handset outside while putting the car in the garage and it still picked up the signal. Never had the wireless broadband interfere with it either (but you can change the channel if it does).

    In summary, this is a great product and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others. The built in night light and temperature gauge are great too - don't bother buying seperate products, particularly the GroEgg - see my review of that if you're thinking of buying.

    Excellent product. The Angelcare excels as both a babyphone and a movement sensor. According to the German est magazine, the Angelcare babyphone has one of the lowest levels of radiowave emissions among similar products and is very safe to use. We find it does an excellent job of turning itself on only when it's needed. And the movement sensor let's us sleep relaxed and confident that our baby's doing fine. It even works fine when our daughter moves around her bed and is not right on top of the sensor pad. My only gripe is that the screen does not have a clock. That would be quite useful when you wake up in the middle of the night. Also we find that the thermometer takes a long time to register the right temperature after the sensor unit is turned on. But both these problems were not enough to keep me from giving this product a five star rating. Recommended!

    Initially appeared difficult to set up until I realised that the baby unit had to be switched on (daah!) in order for the parent unit to be set up with all option we wanted to have! After that it was so easy and you can change modes whenever you want. For example once my baby fell asleep on our bed and I didn't want to move her into her cot as she had a bit of a rough day. So I put the baby unit on, took parental unit out of the room and was able to change setting to sound only without disturbing her and the movement monitor going off.
    They really thought of everything when they made this product:
    When you put mute on, if you forget about it, the unit switches mute button off After a couple of minutes or so.
    If you forget to put baby monitor on (or if you were to have a power cut), the parent unit starts beeping after a few seconds (it scared the life out of the first time this happened as I thought it was the movement alarm - even though it is a different sound).
    The sensitivity of the pad is amazing! My baby sleeps in a cot bed and she is moving all over the place (some mornings she is right at the bottom of the bed) and the movement monitor still works!! I made sure that we put the sensitivity of the baby monitor to the highest level. We have never had a false alarm. I have even left the baby unit switched on after picking her up just to make sure it was not faulty and sure enough after 20 seconds it would start beeping! We did have to buy some MDF to put under her mattress to ensure the pad had a solid support. We did the same thing when our baby was in moses basket.
    The movement sound can be turned off the parent unit - just make sure you select "waves" and "talking head". You will still see the symbol for movement but no beep. Happy relaxed sleeping!
