This product includes nursery
unit that provides clear sound quality, which is one of the main criteria when choosing a baby monitor cause you definitely would want to be able to hear clearly the baby cooing, laughing or crying and a parent unit, that is featured by latest hi-tech full color screen
that displays the temperature in the room where the baby is asleep which is important for baby's comfort. 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.

One can manage the sound monitor with the volume control on the front of the unit where you can select the channels as well. There are 8 channels. The parent unit also contains the same features as the monitor. The display can be seen easily, it is clear and bright. Lots of parents like the simplicity of the product and the fact that it is not overburden with too many gadgets that can usually confuse the user but do not add much to the functionality of the device.
This product offers clear and good transmission of the sound
and sends notifications to the parent unit for any sound that is not a white noise and compared to other Angelcare related products, the sound monitor blocks more background noise. The sound can be adjusted accordingly on the buttons positioned on the parent unit. On the parent unit there is a sound light that "presents" the sound of noises that come from the room where the baby is sleeping.
The batteries are rechargeable and one charge can last up to 24 hours. The monitor uses AC adapter or if you prefer you can use 4 AAA batteries while the parent unit can be recharged with charging cradle. Even if you use it daily without the charger for naps and during bedtime
the unit has proven to function with the batteries properly and confirmed by customers to last long time between two charges. The battery option is very convenient in case of power failure. In addition to this, there is an indicator that warns you in case of low -battery.
The Angelcare sound monitor offers monitoring with a range of up to 250 meters on open field and between 80 meters and 100 meters (indoor) which is quite impressive range. Majority of the customers claim that they have never had issues with the range and this is one of the characteristic that is the most prominent and one of the reasons that the parents decide to buy this particular product. So even if you live in a big house or work in the garden outside with this range you will be able to hear your baby and can have a peace of mind while you are doing some everyday chores and your baby is peacefully asleep
. In case you go further there is out of range indicator that will notify you if you are out of the range or that the connection is lost. All in all it offers great coverage.
On the screen which is on the Parent Unit there is a display of the temperature that is at the nursery room. This is very convenient for the parents because you do not have to actually go to the nursery room in order to check the temperature since it is shown on the parent unit that is portable and you can carry with you so you can always check whether the temperature is too cold or too warm. 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.
This product is of a very good size and because of this it can be positioned easily even in the most space- limited bedrooms
or nursery rooms. The screen itself is small and the parent unit too so you can carry it around without any problem. The most popular color is white but it is also offered in grey color. Its simple but yet modern design draws the attention of the older children who often mistaken it for a toy and like to play with it, but this product proves to be with great durability because of its sturdy construction.
Baby Activity Tracking
This sound monitor will make you feel relaxed while baby is sleeping because even if the baby is very young like 2 months old you can set the continuous sound monitoring and you can set it on the most sensitive level and this makes the parent unit on all the time so whatever the baby does, the nursery unit will register and transmit the sound to the parent unit, for example you can hear baby breathing, sneezing, turning around so it is really helpful and stress relieving
for parents who tend to panic and would always like to be present and know what is happening with their newborns or in the nursery room especially in the first months of the newborns. Later, when the child grows up and he/she is 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 awaken 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 Angelcare sound monitor is not only transmission of sound but at the same time it can serve as night light
in the nursery providing nice and pleasant touch to the nursery, that is at the same time practical because it gives a glow in the room. The parent unit also contains sound light that "shows" the sounds or it lights it up when it registers a sound in the room. 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 is 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 certain level of volume in the nursery. This feature can be deactivated and in this case the nursery unit will detect continuous sounds.
Overall the price is very acceptable for a product that has as many features as this one. Taking into account the quality of the good sound, battery life and attractive design with durable constriction and ability to track the activities of the baby the price is more than acceptable and this product is definitely worth the price.
