Please click on a question to see its answers.

Q:Can the monitor in the baby’s room be plugged in or does it have to run on batteries?

A:

The monitor in the baby’s room can be plugged in. It does not need batteries to work.

In fact both units have AC adapters. Either can be plugged in or use batteries. I always leave the baby monitor (microphone) unit plugged in under my baby’s crib. The parent unit (speaker) is plugged in when next to my bed at night, but I use the batteries when I am awake and carrying it with me.

Q:A reviewer noted the vibrating aspect and that it would wake her up. How was it worn in bed? On the wrist, belt or under a pillow? I’m deaf.

A:

I don’t think this one would work for you then unless you are a very light sleeper. It does have a belt clip on the back but the vibration seemed very weak to me. Also, the vibration would go off all the time, crying baby or not.

Q:Has anyone tried to the full 2,000 ft range? Even outside? How was the reception?

A:

Have not tried from outside, but my home is 3,200 sq ft and have had no problems. Baby downstairs and me upstairs farthest distance tried.

Q:Are there 2 channels? Can I buy two sets and use them in the same house? (Hey, I have a lot of kids :-)

A:

Yes you can use multiple sets in the same home. We have two in our house.

Q:does each unit come with a power adapter or do i get those separately?

A:

each do come with power adapter. :)

Q:Does the parent unit have to have the batteries to work? Why does it keep beeping if you take the batteries out?

A:

If you don’t use the batteries you have to keep it plugged in.

Q:Is the child unit also battery powered, so it could be moved from room to room without having to be plugged in, etc?

A:

Yes, however; the battery life is not nearly as long-lasting as the parent unit.

Q:does the monitor beep or somehow warn you if you are out of range?

A:

Monitor lights turn red & beeps (and vibrates if vibrate mode turned on) when out of range and/or battery is dying.

Q:Anybody use this with sound machine? Interaction? Does monitor pick up machine noises and mistake for baby noises

A:

I always have the sound machine on when baby is asleep. Because I can hear the sound machine via the monitor, I know the monitor is working. I can still hear the slightest noise baby makes.

Q:Can the parent unit communicate to the childs unit? Like the vtech baby monitor.

A:

No, your unit only works for listening your child is not both ways.

Q:Can you turn off the “light” feature? I just want the sound. Thanks for the help!

A:

The light on the parent unit cannot be turned off. It is a little brighter than I like and I have a light scarf on the unit to dim it out. The child unit is pretty dim and does not disturb the baby.

Q:Can you adjust sensitivity?

A:

You can turn down or increase the vibrations, just like the volume.

Q:Does it say anywhere whether its 120-240 volts or only 120 volts? (trying to travel out of country with it) Thank you!

A:

mine says it’s 6V DC

Q:What type of battery use de digital monitor?

A:

The parent unit (the one parents keep with them) comes with a rechargeable battery pack. You recharge it by plugging the parent unit into the wall using the included AC adapter.

The nursery unit (the one you leave next to the baby) takes 3 standard AAA batteries (not included). You do not need batteries for the nursery unit though. It can work using its own included AC adapter. (Two AC adapters are included: one for the parent unit and one for the nursery unit.)

Q:I have a nursery and parent unit, but now I would like another parent unit- are they comparable if not purchased together?

A:

We have one at home and we purchased a second to use at my parents house. We were going to keep the new receiver and swap it with receiver at our house but we couldn’t get the new receiver to sync up with the old monitor. We tried to get it to work for a long time and my husband finally decided that it was a lost cause. If we do buy another receiver and you get it to work I’d be interested in knowing how.

Q:Does this unit work well in buildings with concrete walls between the parent unit and the baby unit?

A:

i had it set up in an apartment over my garage – a concrete building while I was in my house – a stone building. (this was for my elderly dad) and I could hear him in the intercom clear as a bell. So the answer is absolutely

Q:Can this be used as an intercom, if a parent is in the room with the monitor can they talk to the parent on the other side of the house with this?

A:

No

Q:Can those with wifi & cordless phones in home offer input about interference? VTech Audio (1.9GHz frequency) was a dud…bad static/interference!

A:

No Interference.

Q:does the baby unit need to stay plugged in or does it work on batteries too?? I need one that links without being hooked to the wall plug.

A:

It works without being plugged into the wall!!

Q:Does this pick up a lot of background noise, like a space heater or AC? I assume you can’t adjust noise sensitivity.

A:

Yes it does, but you can distinguish voice from background noise.

Q:Would this work for caregivers who might be 1000′ away. Mother is a fall risk.

A:

I don’t think it would, to be honest… I don’t have the specs on it, but I know I have used mine from the nursery, and as soon as I get to the end of my driveway (like when I go pick up our mail), it starts to “beep” out of range….. and our driveway isn’t that long…. maybe 3 car lengths? I would assume it also depends on what’s “blocking it” (i.e- the material of walls it’s going thru or if there is other interference)…. You could try, but I wouldn’t assume it would. What is great, it that the unit does “beep” at you, if you’re out of range… so that is…

Q:My mother is in as Assisted Living Home, she is a high fall risk, 98 yrs, cannot hear and strong willed. Will this alert possibly 1000 ft away

A:

You know I’m not sure to be 100% but I can tell you it vibrates when someone moves around it i can hear my baby crying from upstairs when im downstairs sometimes in the garage or outside I don’t want to give you the wrong info because i wouldn’t want anything to happen to her with my wrong advice. Good luck

Q:Do you here a lot of white noise with this? I LOVED the Vtech monitor, no white noise but we live in apt and someone else has one. Interference now :(

A:

There is definitely some white noise, better than another I have used, but more than I would like. So can’t recommend if that is critical. The Graco and maybe your current monitor has multiple channels to avoid interference. Check your manual (if yours is misplaced, look for a manual online).

Q:Is the monitor continuous sound?

A:

Yes. Its great for its price!

Q:i would like to use the base outside to listen to the birds in the winter time. Does the base unit have a battery compartment, what size batteries?

A:

Don’t know but I would think any water and freezing temps would run electronics

Q:What kind of Batteries are required for this unit?

A:

It comes with it’s own battery and charger.

Q:Does it have Voice activation? As in silent until the baby makes a noise then it kicks on?

A:

It is activated when the baby cries or moves abruptly

Q:Setting this up, I inserted the battery pack into the parent unit and plugged AC in. The unit keeps beeping every 15 sec. Is something wrong?

A:

The battery need to be charged I believe 8 hrs before it can be used. Check to make sure it is inserted correctly then that both monitor and hand held is on – if the beeping continues I would call customer service. We love our unit and have no problems.

Q:Hi, I bought this baby call. But I am from Argentina. I need a power convertor, no?

A:

yes, you need a power converter, but it�s easy and cheep to by one.

Q:I want to use this in the hotel. there are lot of walls and I yet do not know how many floors. so till how far it will work if I go downstairs?

Q:Hi I want to know if the monitor can be plugged to 220vol, I William use ir outside us, thanks

A:

Its not for a 220 volt plug but its so easy to get these converters, extremely happy with the product, pays to invest in a converter

Q:hello i m from argentina, it can be plugged to 220 volts or i will need a transformer

A:

I think ur gonna need a transformer. The parent unit also runs on batteries and i always keep batteries in it. It cuts down on the buzzing noise.

Q:I bought this monitor because of the supposed 2000 ft range, but if I get about 60 feet from the base it doesn’t work. what gives?

A:

The advertised range is based on how far away you could get without anything between the base and receiver (think big open field). Once you start adding walls, doors, and floors to that the range is reduced and the material used to construct the walls, floors, and doors makes a difference. For this price range we like this monitor best (and we’ve tried a bunch). That being said, we also have a samsung video monitor that costs a few hundred and it is amazing.
