Parents constantly worry about their children. From the moment they are born, they start to fret. Luckily, there is a baby sound monitor that can help to put their minds at ease. The Angelcare Movement Sensor not only allows you to hear your child, but it also alerts you if your baby stops moving. Here is a little bit more information about this Angelcare baby monitor.
Setting up the monitor
The Angelcare baby sensor monitor comes with a nursery unit, a parent unit and a sensor pad. The sensor pad is to be placed under your baby’s mattress on a hard, flat surface. The cord for the sensor pad will go under the mattress so that it is not a hazard for your baby. The cord for the sensor pad plugs into the nursery unit, which can be either plugged into an outlet or operated with batteries. Both the nursery unit and the parent unit have two channels. Hence, just make sure that they are both on the same one.
Picking a mode
The monitor has three different functions: Sound and Movement, Tic Off or Sound Only. With the sound and movement function, you will be able to hear your baby over the parent unit and see sound lights. The nursery unit will track your baby’s movement and will tic sound every time that your baby moves. The tic off mode monitors sound and movement as well, but it does not tic each time your baby moves. Movement will still be detected and you will still see the sound lights, you will just not hear a ticking sound each time your baby moves. The sound only mode works like a traditional monitor and transmits sound only. It will not monitor your baby’s movement.
How it works
Once your baby is placed on his or her bed, the baby sensor pad will detect the baby’s movement. The nursery unit will either light up or light up and emit tics, depending on the mode you choose. If no movement at all is detected by the pad for 20 seconds, an alarm will go off.
Since the sensor pad detects movement, it is possible to get false alarms. You should make sure to turn off the nursery unit each time you take your baby out of the crib or it will detect it as there is no movement and the alarm will sound. Also, once your baby is more mobile, he or she may roll too far from the centre of the mattress where the sensor cannot detect and the alarm will go off.
