Please click on a question to see its answers.

Q:Does the unit in the baby’s room run on batteries

A:

The other answer is simply incorrect. The unit in the baby’s room plugs in, no batteries; it is stationary. The parent units can be plugged in or use batteries (not included).

Q:Does this have two way communication? Can I talk from receiver to the base?

A:

It does not and i ended up returning it because of f constantly losing signal, the other vtech model i forgot what model number but is number one on the popular list has 2 way and works good

Q:Does this monitor come with a pager feature to help me locate a misplaced parent unit? I can be pretty forgetful so this is a necessity for me.

A:

While I have not noticed a pager feature from the baby unit, if the parent unit is turned on and you turn off the baby unit, the parent unit will beep. This could help you locate the parent unit.

Q:We are closing off the living room . The living room houses the door bell chime & the drive way alarm. Will this monitor transmit those sounds?

A:

If it’s in the same room as the doorbell and alarm, yes. There is a slight delay in detecting noise, so the first second of noise is not transmitted.

Q:Does the parent unit have a power supply adapter included?

A:

Yes, all three units come with an AC power adaptor. Parent units can be run off triple A batteries as well. We use this when we need to monitor the baby and there are no plugs available. Otherwise, we leave them plugged in.

Q:how do I turn up the volume on the receiver units ? We can barely hear anything. I’ve already pressed and held the volume up arrow

A:

I dont know. We had to return out because the sound would go out. I dont know if it was a sound or transmission issue.

Q:My receivers are “chirping” no batteries, can’t find my manual, does anybody else know why?

A:

I can’t answer because I had to return the one I ordered. The reason for returning it was only because I order the wrong monitor.

Q:Thinking about buying this to monitor a dryer (w/a buzzer) in an attached garage. Will it transmit dryer buzzes. Can turn buzzer loud. Thx!

A:

Yes

Q:How close can the parent unit be to the listening unit? i.e. can it be in the same room and used to amplify an alarm signal from a medical device

A:

Likely not. I tested them out about 6 feet from each other. They started to create feedback. It may work well in your situation. It will get loud.

Q:Does the parent unit accept rechargeable batteries?

A:

Good question. I read the instruction several times and could not find anything about that. I have been using AAA batteries, but believe you could use rechargeables as long as the voltage was the same and you recharge them separately. I am still happy with the unit, can’t believe the range it has. I can be in the Motorhome 300 feet away and it’s reliable and clear, thru 3 walls and inside the Motorhome. Hope this helps.

Q:I plan to use a sound machine in the nursery. This monitor states that it transmits sound once it is detected in the room. For those who use the monitor with a sound machine, does the monitor consistently transmit the music and the babies cries/sounds…

A:

We use a sound machine also and even when i turned it all the way up and placed it right next to the monitor, the noise of the sound machine did not come through the monitor. If my husband speaks very softly in the room, the noise also does not come through. When the baby cries or makes noise, the noise cuts in and out of the monitor and misses the first word she says. With the sound machine on, I can’t understand what she is saying sometimes but without it, it’s clear. I really dislike that the monitor is completely silent all the time when I know the sound machine is on in there so for…
