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.
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.

All Angelcare monitors in the UK and Ireland are specific models designed for this region. If purchased from outside of the UK and Ireland, the UK warranty becomes invalid and product functionality cannot be guaranteed (due to different transmission frequencies and/or voltages). Please ensure batteries are fitted correctly prior to use to avoid any signal interference.
