I currently use this baby monitor (not sensor pad) still for my 2 year old. I now have a new addition to our family and I am considering buying a new one rather than a combined 2 camera one. It has seen my 2 year old from birth and has been a great product that has eased newly parents. I would recommend this to everyone! My parents even have them for when my daughter stays over
I bought this audio and sensor mat as the ones which also come with a camera didn't have such good reviews. I have bought this, then also have a camera separately for extra peace of mind. I am a bit of a worrier when it comes to my little boy!
This product is great as it can be used for either audio, or both audio and the sensor mat. We used the audio when my son would take short naps in his moses basket during the day, now he is in own room I use both the audio and mat. When testing it the mat seems very responsive when you lift the baby out. After 30 seconds of no movement an alarm starts to sound.
The parent unit is simple to use with its touch screen. I also like that the screen remains dark so in the evening and during the night it's not harsh on your eyes. Other handy featurs this monitor has is the VOX mode which cuts out any background noise, only going off with the noise of the baby. It also has a max and min temperature alerting you if the nursery becomes too hot or too cold.
Overall I love this monitor. It's got every feature you could need from an audio and sensor monitor. It is well worth buying, and when used alongside a good quality camera it works out cheaper, for a much better dual monitor.
I purchased this for peace of mind as I'm a chronic worrier. The movement monitor is easy to use and comes with a selection of handy features. The monitor goes underneath the mattress and isn't uncomfortable for baby at all. The parent device has a touch screen which you can then turn on the movement monitor. A couple of times I have forgotten to turn this off when I lift baby out and the alarm will sound so just ensure you turn the function off when taking baby out of the cot. A temperature display is also featured which is brilliant for knowing if the room is at a safe temperature for baby, there is an added function of a temperature alarm which you can set up, this will then alarm should the temperature get to high or to low. A handy little night light is also included which is quite bright so enough for feeding but not bright enough for nappy changing in the middle of the night. My only problem would be the battery on the parent unit drains quite ote quickly especially when the voice monitor is activated but overall I would highly recommend this product.
Wouldn’t be without this product for a new baby. It has provided us with so much reassurance especially in the early days.
The sensor mat is sensitive enough without it going off uneccesarily. Great as your big standard baby monitor too.
It’s only downfall is the size of the buttons on the touch screen, which are a little hard to locate when you’ve forgotten to turn the mattress off when removing baby from the crib at the 3am feed. The alarm is pretty loud which I would look at as a benefit! Highly recommend
I have used the monitor with both my children and can definitely sleep a lot better knowing that the sensor pad is there.
It is easy enough to use the touch screen on the monitor to select your settings and the nightlight is agood feature for through the night so baby isn't startled with a big bright light.
After 2 years the battery on my monitor doesn't hold a charge so it now has to constantly be sat on the dock. Even taking it off for a few seconds to change a setting causes the battery to drain and the alarm going off on it to alert you to this.
Been using this monitor for 3 years now and the only issue is the battery life is not as good. Have to charge more often and does not last long. Good value for money as we still using it now with 3 year old and newborn baby. Simple to use. Got a night light which is handy. Design I do not think looks that great but the quality is important more in a baby monitor to ensure safety.
i have used this product when looking after my niece. My in laws bought this as she sleeps in a different room. They told me about it and how they are able to relax knowing that it is there. I panicked the first time she stayed over in case something went wrong. I kept monitoring her when she was sleeping in case it didn't work. after a while i noticed that it was working well and i was able to relax.
It’s not easy enough to switch alarm off, the metre long plastic rod
Ease of use
I simply could not do without this product for piece of mind. As a first time mum, I was worried about my baby stopping breathing in the night and me not knowing. With the breathing monitor, I can relax knowing I will be alerted after 20 seconds if there was no movement. I’ve now moved it from the crib to the cot and it still works even with a much thicker mattress. The monitor also has a temperature gauge for the room which will beep if the room gets too hot or cold. There’s a nightlight on top which makes it easy to see in the dark. The downside is the metre long plastic rod which connects the breathing pad to the monitor. It has to be a metre away to work apparently. Also if you forget to switch off the device before you take baby out the cot/crib and the alarm goes off, I find it hard to switch off.
This monitor is great I love to be able to watch my babies sleep and the fact it has night mode so you can see them in the dark is a bonus as daughters like sleeping in the dark. I gave up with the mat as my daughter wriggles too much in her sleep and just rolls off it sending the alarm off all the time. Our monitor battery sadly has now died and it only works when sat in its charger cradle but still does the job so it’s fine.
The baby unit has to be a meter away from the pad. Slightly annoying.
Ease of use
This product was fantastic! Our daughter was premature and had breathing problems when we was released from hospital she stopped breathing twice and this monitor alerted us and we was able to help her. She is now better and her lungs matured and we use it still and use the night light and it's two settings and the parent monitor is good quality and can't be faulted.
This is great, the monitor has a night light and you can talk back to your baby through it which can be handy. The only downside is the movement alarm when you're so tired and forget to turn it off when you're doing night feeds. Resulting in the whole house and a couple of neighbours being woken up.
Camera could only be positioned eye level to see baby
Ease of use
Product was great as my daughter now 4 would hold breath whilst sleeping and the alarm would help me to feel more relaxed on a night time so I wouldn't keep going, checking and waking her up. However the o my down fall was the camera I had to purchase a small portable tripod for a digital camera to screw I the bottom to position the camera on the the side of the cot or on the unit near the cot leaning over to see baby from more of a bird's eye view.
I got brought this As a gift and my son is now 3 years. Old and I still use it it’s makes. Me feel safer knowing I can see and hear everything whilst still doing the washing and cleaning it’s pefects for all ages I also find it helpful for when my little one has his cousin round if I’m making the lunch I can keep an eye on them you can all speak through it just hold the button down on the side
I was torn between a video or sensor pad as I couldn’t afford both. We decided on the angle care sensor monitor. It’s brilliant the temperature on the screen is brilliant as you don’t need to check the room thermostat as a quick glance will tell you. Also the eco mode helped the battery last longer! The night light is just the right brightness.
If baby rolls off the mat, the sensor alarm goes off.
Ease of use
This item is expensive but it is so worth the money. We can put baby to bed on with the peace of mind she's ok. It has an infrared camera, sound, temperature gate, heart beat sensor and so on.
The parent unit can be off charge for 4 hours. We bought a separate parent dock charger for downstairs so we have one beside our bed and downstairs for convenience. The heart beat sensor is sensitive. If our baby decides to lie along the very bottom of the cot, the heart beat sensor doesn't pick her up. I'm quite glad though as it shows the sensor does work and it alerts us if there is a problem. There never has been a problem but we've never complained about our investment on this monitor.
