Q:It says that the battery life is only four hours. Is this accurate? Do you have to change the batteries in the middle of the night, every night?

A:

I have never changed the batteries…It has worked well ever since we got it. That’s been about 4 months now.

Q:what does it mean that the battery life is 4 hours? How does that work? It wouldn’t even last through the night then?

A:

Both the description and the person to answer your question are wrong. The battery life is 3-4 months, and it does require two AA batteries.

Q:So every time I take the baby off the mattress to nurse, etc the alarm will go off due to no movement?

A:

Yes, you just have to remember to turn the monitor off. I like the monitor that only detects movement because the off/on switch stays in the baby’s room. It is easy to turn off if you forget (I nurses baby in her room). You can use a regular sound monitor with it (or my baby’s room is close enough to our room I really don’t use a sound monitor at all because I can hear the alarm without it). This monitor still amazes me. Best thing I have ever bought – gives me such peace of mind.

Q:can i use under a standard bassinet mattress?

A:

yes

Q:It says you can’t use it with a dual sided mattress. My mattress is dual firmness. Will the monitor work with my mattress?

A:

Yes, no problem.

Q:so if batteries only last 4 hr will i have to change them ever night?

A:

We have use it since our boy was born, 4 months and counting without changing batteries yet. Batteries last a long time.

Q:Is this wireless? Or does the sensor pad connect to monitor by wire? I know the old ones all have wires but have been waiting for the new wireless.

A:

It’s wired.

Q:Is this monitor sensitive enough to monitor breathing?

A:

Yes, it is.

Q:If I buy this in US, is it dual voltage and can it be used in countries where 220V? Thank you!

A:

Usually most devices that work with 120v will work wifh 220v because

Q:Is this alarm supposed to get picked up by my sound monitor? I thought I would be able to have this monitor on my nightstand???

A:

It gets picked up by your sound monitor.

Q:With this monitor did anyone have false alarms because the pad was too small and baby kept rolling off the pad?

A:

I have the alarm on my now 6 month’s old crib. Began using it a few months ago when we transitioned to crib and he was a belly sleeper. We have had probably 5 false alarms in 3-4 months. However, since I’ve moved it closer to the end of the bed that he prefers, it’s significantly less. I’ll take a few false alarms tho for comfort of knowing that the darn thing works.

Q:Can you just use two movement only monitors for twins?

A:

We have 2 monitors for our twin girls…1 in each crib. They cannot be used in the same bed.

Q:Can this product be connected to another angel care movement and sound monitor for twins? Or how does it work with twins? G.

A:

I bought this because we used the angel care movement monitor for our first child and loved the peace of mind it gave us. When we were expecting our twins I read that this could be used as the movement sensor for the 2nd crib and then you would hear the alarm (from your room) through the other monitor. While this does solve the problem of being able to monitor breathing in both cribs, the problem is if you take the crying baby into your room to nurse (as I do) you can’t leave the monitor on to hear the other baby because you can’t disconnect the sensor without the alarm going off.

The only thing I can think of is buying this and a cheap sound monitor, but my concern about having two sound monitors was would there be a problem with the different “channels and frequencies” being so close.

Q:Can this be used with a foam mattress?

A:

I think so. It responds to movement , so it makes since that it would work on all types of mattresses .

Q:I know its not designed for adults… Have any adults tried it? Thanks.

A:

You would break it lol.

Q:How do you hide the wire in a bassinet?

A:

I don’t know what your bassinet looks like. Know that you need a mattress to hide the sensor under. We use ours in his pack and play and there is holes in corner for wires. But overall this is great worry free nights when he sleeps on his belly.

Q:What’s the range?

A:

It is connected by a 6 foot cord. the alarm is very loud though. but you would not use it to replace a baby monitor, it doesn’t tell you when your baby is crying. the alarm goes off when the baby stops breathing. we use it with our monitor so that we would hear it across the house if needed. it really gives you peace of mind if you are worrying about SIDS

Q:Will this work with a bassinet?

A:

Yes, I used mine in a small Moses bassinet. You have to get a small piece of hardboard to put under the monitor pad (the directions say the hardboard needs to be a bit bigger than the pad at minimum, but the bassinets are so small that I just got a thin strip and it still worked!!) just test it out! I tested it a few times to make sure and it worked like a charm! Really worth it and gives such peace of mind, we are still using ours! Good luck!
