This award-winning baby Movement & Sound Monitor system is both pretty and practical. Slide the Sensor Pad under the crib mattress and its motion detectors will pick up the slightest movements, whether baby is sound asleep or wide awake. Plus, like music to your ears, you’ll hear every little sound coming from baby’s room on your portable Parent Unit, which features a full color digital display, nursery temperature display and other extras designed to give you the peace of mind you need to get a good night’s sleep too.

The Breathing Sensor Pad can be used with most baby mattresses. However, it cannot be used with memory foam mattresses or mattresses with a hollow frame.

Monitoring of premature baby or babies considered to be at risk, should be carried out only under the supervision of a Doctor or Health Professional. This monitor should NOT be used as a medical device, nor as a device to prevent Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Peace of mind I put this on our registry and was so excited that it was purchased for us! This has given us peace of mind since we moved our little one out of the bassinet in our room to the crib in her own room. We have been using it for about a month and have not had any false alarms yet. I know it works because if I pickup baby before turning the sensor off the alarm sounds. The only con so far is that there is a constant humming and clicking noise through the parent monitor. It's most noticeable at night as we lay in bed. I have read this is common on some models and we have yet to find a fix for it- we have tried changing channels, disconnecting wifi in the house and moving cell phones further away from the device. Somewhat annoying but I'll deal with it as long as I know it's working!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I have had this monitor for 5 months now. My son was having trouble with Apnoea attacks at the hospital so we bought it as a precaution. It works amazingly. Only issue we have is sometimes the parents model will make a loud fuzzy noise but it only happens rarely and I think it has to do with it being to far away from the baby monitor part (did it on one side of our room doesn't seem to when moved to closer to the baby's room(so the other side of our room). It's easy to use, has great detail on the parents monitor (temp of baby's room, a little metronome (like a clock one) that shows baby is moving and the pad is sensing it)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Piece of mind for first time mom After tons and tons of research I decided to go with this monitor. I\'m terrified of SIDS and this is a movement and sound monitor. My sister used this with both her kids and loved it as well. The monitor is relatively easy to install and the sensitivity of it is amazing. I have no fear that it won\'t pick up my baby\'s movements, even if he moves to the edges of the Crib. I looked into sound and video monitors as well but this got amazing reviews from the baby gear lab and I can sleep at night knowing that my little one is safe thanks to this awesome monitor!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will be buying another one!! I bought this for my first baby 5 years ago and it\'s just now finally kicked the bucket. I will be buying another one for my baby due in December because I love it! We had a few false alarms because my first daughter would roll herself all the way to the edge or corner of the crib where the monitoring couldn\'t properly detect her. That only happened a few times. My favorite features are the constant sound so that I can hear the smallest of whimpers or cries and get to the baby before she\'s fully awake. It also shows the temperature which was awesome for knowing if I needed a fan or not or adjust the thermostat. I\'ve used his monitor with two babies and now two toddlers, and can\'t wait to get another one

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent with a few glitches We used this for our oldest and loved it. The comfort it gave my anxious mind was invaluable. We did have some occasions of false alarms where the unit would beep as if baby had stopped breathing, but each time it was a fluke. Once we got the sensitivity set properly, those instances were reduced. Another concern is the cord from the sensor pad to the monitor. You need to be VERY careful to run it in a way that it doesn\'t pose a strangulation hazard. The other issue we had was the lights on the monitor gave out eventually making it impossible to change the settings. It took probably 2-3 years, so it wasn\'t horrible but still frustrating. All in all, we did love it and will be buying a new one for our next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I've had this through two children and love it. I'm convinced it saved my first child's life. She was a premie and the alarm went off. I went into her room to find her not breathing. I shook her lightly and yelled and she took a giant intake of breath. Classic SIDS where kid stops breathing and respiratory system too immature to kick-start alone. This model doesn't have video, which I have never felt the need for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Decison I researched monitors for months and decided this was our safest and best option - we absolutely hate it. It beeps constantly, wakes us up, and sometimes wakes up our baby. The product sounds great in theory, but we had a baby (and parents) sleeping through the night in our bedroom and now everyone is being disturbed by this monitor, since moving our daughter to her nursery/crib.

Sometimes when I take my baby out of her cot, the sensor doesn’t go off!? What could be the cause as I’m worried that the sensors won’t trigger if something was to go wrong??

Asked by: Jess21
The alarm is not sounding most likely because it is detecting another source of movement. Lower the sensitivity level and test without putting the baby in the bed. Air current from a fan or vibrations from another source.

Hello. Will this monitor detect if my baby has a seizure? I am looking to buy for this purpose specifically. 

Asked by: Ged72246
The Angelcare monitor's sensor pads detect the slightest movement. and will not alarm if any movement is detected. NOTE: Angelcare monitors are a lifestyle product that monitor movement of healthy babies and are not to be used to treat or monitor a known condition. Medical advice should be sought if a known condition is suspected or known to ensure the correct care is given – Angelcare products are not substitutes for Medical or parental care.

Is the angelcare compatible to use with a snoo bassinet?

Asked by: eew12
It is not recommended to use the sensor pad with bassinets and pack and plays. It should be used in a sturdy crib to monitor baby.

Hi my wife is concerned about the GHz rating and effects on our daughter. What rating is it at GHz, MHz or KHz and how much. Also does it come with an eco mode?

Asked by: Concerned dad
Hello, Settings transmission from the Parent Unit to the Nursery Unit is made on the 2.4 GHZ frequency (as most wifi routers). Transmission from the Nursery Unit to the Parent Unit is made on the 864 MHz frequency in Europe/Asia/Africa and made on the 927 MHz frequency for North America/Ecuador/Oceania. Any baby monitor with a wireless baby link will, by their very nature produces radio waves. Similar to the radio or TV signals. The radio waves transmitted by the Angelcare sound monitor are below all regulatory limits and these measurements have been confirmed by testing in independent accredited laboratories. There is no eco mode.

Hi, Is the Angel Care baby monitor AC 401 still available in Ireland? If not, can recommend a similar model? Thanks 

Asked by: Trevor
Thank you for contacting Angelcare North American Helpline. We are sorry that you are experiencing a problem with your monitor. Unfortunately, if you have purchased your monitor outside North America, we are unable to process any request for replacement units. Due to the software differences between North America & International models, any replacement parts we keep in stock will not connect/work with your monitor.

Click the link below to be directed to the list of our International Distributors and they will also be able to recommend a simular model that is available in your area. Additionally, as our monitors are for North American market only, our warehouse is not able to dispatch any North American parts internationally. We hope this information is helping you and we thank you for choosing Angelcare. Best regards.
