Please click on a question to see its answers.

Q:Does it show the temperature like the sound and movement monitor does?

A:

Yes it does. It will show something like (76F for example) at the top banner.

Q:Does is have Czech language selection? Does it work on European frequencies?

A:

The power can come from 100v~230v but the socket is us format. Only 2 converters will be required. Don’t think there is any language selection other thanenglish though

Q:Does it include the Safety Cord Cover Angelcare made for the movement sensor?

A:

Yes but we haven’t used it uet

Q:Can this unit be mounted to the wall or is it only for table top use?

A:

I think is only for table top

Q:Does the nursery unit accept a tripod?

A:

Yes. I recommend a gorilla grip tripod.

Q:Can I purchase an additional sensor pad to connect to the original to cover more area in the crib like the deluxe model does?

A:

You won’t need it. The one sensor placed in the middle is sensitive enough to pick up movement through the whole mattress. Just make sure you set it up like the instructions recommend with a board under the mattress. Its been working 100% for us with no false alarms. Having a second sensor isn’t safer for the baby since lack of movement is what sets off the alarm.

Q:Can I just use the monitor, and disable the movement sensor? It sounds like using the movement for a toddler is useless and hassle as they roll a lot.

A:

Yes you can disable the movement. I used the movement up until my son was about a year and then turned it off and just used the sound/movement.

Q:is the camera cordless

A:

No, it’s not… and on top of that, the instructions say it can’t be plugged into an extension cord. The cord is fairly long, but would need to extend to an outlet (though I haven’t tried with an extension to see what would happen).

Q:will this interfere with a second angelcare monitor I currently use?

A:

I don’t know we only have one.

Q:do you need to deactivate sensor pad everytime you pick up your baby from the crib?

A:

No idea- bought it for our daughter’s impending baby.

Q:Are they compatible with 240 volts? Is the plug 2 or 3 points? I need it to go to Australia

A:

They are compatible with 240 V. Plug is 2 points, you can use adapter for 3 points.

Q:I’m in New Zealand – will this definitely work with a converter. The answers to the other very similar question contradict each other.

A:

I brought an adapter for Australia and it works fine.

Q:Can you move the camera from the parent’s unit?

A:

You can move the camera around anywhere you like. It has a battery built-in, don’t know how long the battery life is because I keep mine plugged in for most of the the time.

Q:Can this be used in a pack n play?

A:

I don’t have one, but am looking to purchase one. I called the company and asked if I could use this in a bassinet, and they do not recommend it as the bassinet is not solid like a crib would be. In other words, the bassinet (or possibly pack n play) can move easier and the movement portion of the monitor may not work properly.

Q:Can you record and playback with this device?

A:

No

Q:Can the video be hacked?

A:

Absolutely not. There is no internet involved with this camera. Which is why I love it so much! I have heard of it picking up other frequencies If someone in the neighborhood nearby has one, it could pick up the camera from that other person. But I find that highly unlikely.

Q:Does the monitor use wifi? If so, is it possible to turn the wifi off an use it?– we would prefer to have a monitor that isn’t hooked up to wifi.

A:

No, it does not use WiFi. It uses a radio frequency.

Q:Can additional video/sound monitors and/or movement sensors be added to the system?

A:

No. The monitor only has one port for connecting one sensor. You would have to buy another unit if you need multiple monitors.

Q:does it come with the camera for video or is that seperate? is it night vision camera capable or not?

A:

Comes with monitor and yes it has night vision. Babies eyes glow. Kinda creepy. But loves it. Bought this one for a gift but I own one from oct 2012 and still use the camera for my 2 year old.

Q:Does this unit run only off batteries / mains or both? Does temperature display in degrees C?

A:

It runs on both. The parent unit has rechargeable batteries, so you can carry it around with you and when battery is low it has a charging station/unit. The monitor unit and motion sensor are connected to power. The temperature can be displayed in either �C or �F. Just go to settings/temp/�C or �F

Q:Does the baby have to be directly above the mat? What if the baby tends to roll/move around the crib? Will this give off a false alarm?

It’s possible, but you can adjust the sensitivity on the handset. Also, read the manual carefully for recommended mattress types and it’s important to put the board between the mattress and the sensor.
