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.

VERY USEFUL. I HAVE PIECE OF MIND. ALTHOUGH THERE WERE 2-3 NIGHTS OF FALSE ALARM WHEN MY BABY MOVED AWAY FROM THE PAD. NOW WE USE IT ONLY AS A MONITOR SINCE MY BABY IS 7 MONTHS OLD

I bought this when my son was born thinking it was the best monitor on the market and despite having to replace a couple of parts I had been quite happy with it. When my daughter was born I started using it with her but the other morning found her in her cot with the cord wrapped round her from her ankles to her neck. How she got hold of the cord I don't know - possibly when I changed the sheet I moved the cord or something. It is horrifying to find your baby wrapped in a cord and you know it could very easily have tragic consequences. I understand two babies in the USA have died from this. I contacted angelcare and they still think their monitors are safe. I have binned my monitor, the very sight of it makes my stomach turn. This product is supposed to provide safety and security for your baby not present a hazard. Why take the risk? If my baby can reach the cable, many babies could.

I've used this for 7 months and love it however you must install it properly with the cable from the pad AND to the socket secured so the baby can't pull it into the cot and strangle themselves (wrap it round the slats, gaffer tape it down). See the angel care website, they did a recall in the USA and are now offering cable kits free in the UK too.
I love that you can open an eye in the night and see the breathing indicator on the handset swinging so you know they're ok.
It's gone off a few times in the cot (never in the Moses basket) when she's moved to lay length ways right at one end. I shuffled the pad further down one end as her preference was to sleep there and it's gone off less frequently.

When we were still waiting for our daughter's appearance our local health visitor came round and spent a good twenty minutes scaring us both senselss about cot death and how it can be reduced. Although she had told us the ways to ensure your baby is as safe as possible- no co-sleeping, checking the correct temperature of the room- we were still slightly paranoid so we decided to purchase this angel care monitor.

The monitor, is basically a sensor mat. This mat is extremely sensitive. It detects the smallest of movements and wil alarm if these movements stop. It is also a night light and a baby monitor. Considering how very complicated this mechanism must be to be able to detect such tiny movements I thought it would be complicated to use but it's so very simple which is lucky as when you have a newborn you don't have time to read instruction manuals!

The sensor mat- which is the size of a face cloth- is placed underneath the mattress of your baby's cot/moses basket. the matress is then replaced and you can put your baby to sleep on the mattress without them noticing the pad beneath. The pad is linked to the 'angel' which is the main body of the machine. It has two switches either side- on and off and light. You turn the switch to 'on' and then leave your baby in peace for the night.

Should your baby stop breathing the angel will alarm and if you have a large house or you want to monitor your baby's snuffles and whimpers you can take the handheld monitor around the house with you like you would any normal baby monitor.

The sensor mat can be turned up and down depending on how sensitive you want it. We have never had it on anything but 5- the most sensitive.

The handheld monitor detects the temperature in the room.
