Gives a peace of mind every night when being used. Easy to use, and loud enough to wake you when sleeping. Monitor unit works fantastically from another room too. Also can be used as a night light. Only downside is remembering to turn off sensor when half asleep and taking baby out of cot to feed. (Don’t want to wake the husband)
I got this for my little boy 4 years ago and we still use the light now as a night light. He loves it. We did plan on using it for our next baby due in January but I’m not sure our son will hand it over so we may just get a new one. The monitor when he was a baby was so reassuring and made it easier for me to sleep on a night.
I used these monitors with my first 2 babies 3 years apart. They still worked just as well as they did when they were brand new. The sensor made us so much more at ease as first time parents. Knowing an alarm would go off if she stopped breathing for more than 2 minutes really put our mind at rest. I would definitely recommend these monitors
We used to use the movement pad with our first child as we felt anxious about SID. It helped a lot for our peace of mind.
The pad is good but I often forgot to turn the alarm off before taking the baby out of his cot and the (really loud) alarm went off which was terrible.
I am so pleased we bought this monitor. It's not as cheap as some but is definitely worth spending more to get the sensor mat. My son learnt to roll very early and preferred to sleep on his front, I would have worried about him if it wasn't for the sensor mat.
I like this baby monitor but I found it hard to get use to, I even find it hard now sometimes and have to get the manual out! Apart from that it’s reassuring to know that your baby is ok with the baby movement detector and you can bear your baby clearly through the handset. It displays the temperature of the room which is handy too. I like the feature of the blue night light also.
We purchased this to give us peace of mind at night after a friend lost her baby to cot death. Initially it took some settling up by my technology savvy husband, we set up it before baby was born. Our first night the pad alarmed all the time, waking baby up, it put me on edge and for the 1st week I sat up making sure that my baby was breathing and did not have sleep apnoea or something (I think when your a nurse all-sorts goes through your head). Eventually after a week my husband said enough was enough and he removed the pad. Although we never used this, we did continue to use the monitors and found them good, the range is fab and in the summer months we where able to sit at the bottom of our garden which is a good 15metwrs from child's bedroom, and it worked. We also took it to grandparents at sleep overs my mother in law lives in a rather big old house with extremely thick walls and she never had a problem using this. If I was to buy again I would prob buy the other products from angel care.
If I'm honest we stopped using the pad as once baby started moving around a bit more he would move off the pad and panic us. The actual monitor is great only makes noise when it detects sound very reliable.
Absolutely recomend this to any new parent. Gave us peace of mind when our baby went into his own room at 6 month old. Only down side is if he rolled to the other end of the cot it used to go off but we stopped using it once he could confidently roll over. Will be purchasing again for any future babies
My baby was born premature and was on machines for the first 8 weeks of her life. When she came home I was waking up every 10 minutes to check that she was still breathing and of course that she was okay! After a week I decided that the lack of sleep wasn’t doing me any good so I brought one of these after a lot of research. It’s easy to set up and if it stops dectecting movement, including a babies tiny breathing, after 15 seconds the alarm goes off! Thankfully this hasn’t happened to me so far, it only goes off when I forget to turn it off before taking her out! I fully tested it out placing weight upon it to make sure it wasn’t only working to my babies weight and it 100% works. A definite must and worth the money for that peace of mind!
Amazing helps get a good night sleep knowing little one is still breathing even more so if there prem also fits in most places like pram,Moses basket and of course cot I have used one for both my kids and when asked tell friends about it as well
May cause alarm if baby wriggles off the sensor may.
Ease of use
This gave me peace of mind that I could put my baby to bed and leave the room. I love the temperature feature that alerts you if the room
is hotter or colder than reccommended. The movement sensor is very sensitive and once a bit bigger babies do wriggle around and a couple of times the alarm did go off and cause us to jump out of bed to check all was ok, but I guess that adds to the peace of mind as it’s doing it’s job. The night light is also a lovely added feature.
I can honestly say this is the best product I have ever bought, as a very nervous mum I love this baby monitor, with me first I didn't have this until he was about 3months old and was extremely sleep deprived as I would sit up most of the night watching my baby sleep making sure he was still breathing then I bought this and now can have a peaceful sleep as the alarm that goes off when there is no movement for over 20second would wake anyone up. The sensor is very sensitive to the point that it can feel the child breathing. I would 100% recommend this to any new or nervous parent.
Puts your mind at ease when you bring your new baby home.
Picks up local police and taxi radios
Ease of use
This was such a blessing when we got our baby home from hospital. A great peace of mind knowing a loud alarm would go off if our baby didn't move.
It only went off a couple of times. Once when I forgot to switch the alarm off when picking my son up and another time when my baby managed to wriggle off the sensor pad completely.
We love the angel sounds monitor, as first time parents it gave us peace of mind when our daughter slept, it took the worry out of checking on her and worrying constantly about cot death as I was a bit neurotic - the quiet beep that sounded to let us know she was breathing became a wonderful reassurance. It lit up and sounded when she cried etc so we knew when to go in and calm her, or whether she was just having a grizzle.
We used it again for our second baby, and again it was fantastic. He was a wriggler and sounded the alarm a few times by rolling off it but I would rather that than it didn’t go off!
I have this for my son and it's amazing although I always forget to turn it off when I pick him up in the night then it makes me jump as I get into bed haha, all jokes aside my sister also had this for her son (my nephew) one night he stopped breathing and this saved his life! As it went crazy beeping my sister ran in and he was blue in the face so my sister blew in his face and he took a deep breath, if it wasn't for this he may have not been here today! I will forever use this no matter what bad reviews it ever gets (it should never get a bad review!)
Please use this!!
Coverage, clear feedback, detects movement and noise
Ease of use
When looking for a monitor I researched many, reading reviews and different features. This monitor seemed to have the best reviews on all websites and I must agree , it consistently gives good coverage and detects slightest movement from baby. Very happy purchase
Peace at mind with breathing mat, night light and easy to set up
Sensory mat not that sensitive
Ease of use
Good product, offers peace at mind, easy to set up but wires are annoying and the mat isn’t that sensitive 100% of the time. There were occasions when I removed our baby and it took at least a minute to register and sound the alarm.
Puts your mind at ease with the sensor mat. Has a night light.
Haven't found one yet
Ease of use
I love this monitor! The fact it has a sensor mat is very reassuring. I love that the night light on there isn't too bright, it gives off enough light so that you can see in your babies room, but not too much that it looks like your at Blackpool lights! There is an option for a sound 'tic' that beeps every few seconds but I found myself sat staring at the monitor waiting for the tic. Thankfully you can turn this option off. You can also use as just a sound monitor. We are yet to have the alarm go off. For the price I cannot fault the product.
I bought this for our baby and still use it now he is 2. The sound is very clear and has a good distance range. It's easy to setup the monitor but found it confusing to set up the movement mat. I ended up not using that part as it just kept setting the alarm off. There is a sensitivity control on the monitor so it doesn't go off with a car driving by but only sounds your baby is making. It's a lovely looking item looks like a little angel. Only thing I don't like is how bright the night light is. It lights up the whole room and keeps my wee boy awake so I don't really use it. Over a great product but can be confusing to set up and no use as a dim night light.
Bought this with my first child due to breathing issues - gave us immediate peace of mind and allowed us to rest. Alarm sounds after 30 seconds and is loud so no chance of not hearing it. Lasted longer than we expected - 5 years, definitely worth the money. Only downside is it doesn’t cover a larger service like the whole of a cot bed if child was to move to the bottom or top of the mattress, otherwise no issues and absolutely does the job.
Enjoy Peace of mind while your baby sleeps with the Angelcare Simplicity AC601 Movement Sensor with Sound Baby Monitor watching over your baby when you can't.
The under-the-mattress Sensor Pad monitors even the slightest movement across the whole surface of your baby's mattress. The optional "Tic" sound function on the rechargeable portable Parent Unit will reassure you that movements are being detected even when your baby is sleeping soundly.
Sound lights also allow you to see and hear the sounds your baby makes in the nursery. The recognisable Angelcare halo light on the Nursery Unit also acts as a soothing night light, so you can check on your baby with minimal disruption.
The monitor can also be mains or battery operated.
