Parents of newborns are more than often concerned about their babies when they are not around or when their babies are asleep. They instantly want to be there the moment the baby cries, coos or fusses in his/her crib and this is why the baby sound monitors are almost always on the list of “must-haves”, and this is one of the reasons why we have decided to have a look at the Angelcare Baby Sound Monitor and point out the most distinguished features that the parents talk about when deciding to buy this kind of product, which seems very popular among parents. This product takes into account the parents desire and need to make sure that their baby is safe and secure and that is why the Angelcare company invests in good quality products which in this case means clear transmission of sound so you will be able to hear any sound coming from your baby or nursery room and good battery life of the units which means that you can rely on this product. The reliability is also verified with the extraordinary range of the sound monitor and the parent unit that you carry with you even when you go further from the nursery room. The Angelcare baby sound monitor features LCD screen that displays the temperature in the room where the baby sleeps and this is an additional characteristic that can contribute to the comfort of the baby and the parents’ peace in knowing that their baby is safe so during naptime they can do housework or just take time to rest. As an item on the “must-have” list, this audio monitor is definitely worth taking a more detailed look.
The additional sound lights “present” the noises that might come from the nursery room. The parent unit comes with charging cradle and the set contains 2xAC adapters and 4xAAA rechargeable batteries but you need to provide additional 4 alkaline batteries for the Parent Unit. Another feature that we like is the indicator that tells you that you are out of range which is limited to 250 meters as well as the indicator for low-batteries.
Ease of Use
This contributes to creating a comfortable and pleasant atmosphere in the nursery room and can be especially useful when you live in a house with more than one floor where the temperature from floor to floor or room to room varies or in winter when the temperatures can drop very quickly. Some parents claim to have certain issues with the temperature display but the company Angelcare has actually stated that for correct temperature display you should make sure to turn on the Parent Unit first and then the Nursery Unit, which is rather useful to know and can save you from unnecessary worries.
Baby Activity Tracking
Later, when the child grows up and he/she is a few months old, you can turn on the voice-activated sound monitoring that keeps the parent unit off and it turns on only when the baby is, for example, cooing, is awoken or crying. This way at night you can have your rest and you do not have to hear every white noise coming from the nursery but can be awakened only when the baby is for example crying. The Angelcare Baby Sound Monitor does not register static noise and as said before the level of sensitivity can be adjusted properly.
The indicators for low-batteries and out of range are bonus features that add to the reliability of this product. Majority of the customers are satisfied with the baby sound monitor and the way it operates. One of the most common characteristics that are being mentioned for this product is that it is reliable.
Few of the parents comment that sometimes the sound coming from the nursery unit might not be clear but this is compensated with the fact that this is really a reliable product because you can relax knowing that the baby is supervised by the sound monitor and that the parent unit, which you can carry with you, shows reliable data related to the temperature and ensures continues and/or voice activated monitoring.
This product is equipped with voice activation which means that the sound will be transmitted after it has achieved a certain level of volume in the nursery. This feature can be deactivated and in this case, the nursery unit will detect continuous sounds.
The Bottom Line
The good range gives you no reason to worry that you are not going to hear the sounds coming from the nursery room but if you do go further you will always be warned by the out of range indicator. There are 8 channels for the sound transmission and you can change the channels in order to minimize the interference.
In addition to these features, there is a night light on the nursery unit that can be used as a night lamp for the nursery room and it is a nice touch to the comfy room because when you want to check the baby it gives a sufficient light to guide your walk into the room. The parent unit has a screen which is easy to read on and which displays the temperature in the nursery room on it, as well as sound indicator lights.
In general, the Angelcare Baby Sound Monitor is recommended because it is handy, proper size, practical because of the range and pretty clear sound transmission, units with good battery life and rechargeable batteries and indicator lights for the low-batteries and out of range. This baby sound monitor makes the parents feel secure that their child is sleeping safe and sound while they are not around.
