Using the Angelcare AC1100 is a great way of keeping a check on the sleep safety of your baby. With a sensor pad that is located under the mattress, you can be alerted via an alarm if your baby has not moved for a set length of time. You can adjust the sensitivity to allow for increased movements as your baby becomes more active. This enables you to check in on your child to see that everything is as it should be. This is made easier thanks to the video monitor that is included with this unit. Using high-quality digital transmission, you get a crystal clear picture of exactly what your baby is doing. The video screen also works as a touchscreen menu enabling you to control the functions of this monitor easily. The sound quality and privacy of this monitor is excellent thanks to multi-channel selection. The Angelcare AC1100 also includes a night light which casts a soothing glow across the room and enables you to pop in and out easily and check on your baby without waking them. The AC1100 can be powered either by the mains or by battery. The battery option is particularly useful if you are travelling abroad. The AC1100 also includes an integrated thermometer so that you can ensure your baby's room is at the optimum temperature and an out of range alarm that tells you when the parent and child units are no longer communicating. The two-way talking system means that you can speak to your baby via the monitor if they need help to settle.
