To help parents not alone in new adventure of parenthood, Angelcare has launched various type of baby monitor being suitable for demand of different family. However, in this post, I just introduce to you 5 models of this brand to help you compare baby monitors and find the most suitable one for you.
List of 5 Best Angelcare Baby Monitor
1. AngelCare AC-401 New Model Deluxe Movement Sound Monitor
I have made a post to review Angelcare AC401 baby monitor, you can find more information about this model in post. This baby monitor helps you in monitoring sounds from baby and detects motion by a movement sensor. AC401 is a combined baby monitor between audio and motion monitor. It means that this baby monitor picks up sounds from baby’s room and transmits to parent unit and sends an alarm if the sound exceeds the preset level. Moreover, motion monitor function is performed with a sensitive reception pads to detect movement and motion of your baby.
This Angelcare AC401 audio and motion baby monitor has a good price range, near 100$ (depend on each time), so I think it is suitable for those who are looking for an affordable baby monitor with motion detection. As I know, movement and motion baby monitor often has high price, so I think Angelcare really offers a good deal. Moreover, some best video baby monitor models are not much cheaper than this one. Children often move even when he is sleeping but audio baby monitor just picks up sounds from him while in some dangerous case such as suffocation, there is no sounds. Therefore, it will be safer for your children if the baby monitor sends an alarm to parents if it doesn’t detect any move in 20 seconds.
In such price range, AC401 is really impressive when offers many nice features: 2 frequencies and 8 channels for optimal sound quality and minimal interference; Under-the-Mattress movement sensor pad for movement detection, nursery temperature monitoring, out of range alert and so on.
Its pros and cons:
- Sensitive sensor pad and clear sound for superior monitoring
During testing time, there are no any false alarms thanks to its sensitivity set correctly. Various frequencies and channels with sensitivity dial found on the back of baby unit, and it can be adjusted helps us very much on picking sounds from baby’s room. This sensitive reception pads picks up any movements, whether it is the child rolling over, breathing or playing. It brings me feel of reliability.
- Good range
Its range up to 820ft and plus with out of range indicator so I can bring it around home without worrying about out of range.
- Compact and nice design
- Customizable setting
- Not very easy to set up sensor pads leading to some false in alarming
I feel it’s quite hard for parent to set up and place it in right position at the first time. But after reading carefully manual book and trial, I could position and hook up correctly.
- Not very long battery life
Overall, I am satisfied with all features it provides. There are not so many features but each feature it owns brings the convenience and comfort to users.
Notably, manufacture recommends parents to use this Angelcare AC401 audio and motion baby monitor for children from newborn to 24 months. After that, parents should remove the movement sensor pads from under the mattress and use it as an audio baby monitor only. This pad can be stored in dry place for re-use for your next newborn.
Of course, if your child is newborn but you want to use it as the audio baby monitor only, it’s totally OK.
2. Angelcare AC420 Baby Sound Monitor
Angelcare AC420 baby monitor is simply an audio baby monitor without any motion detection like AC401. This baby monitor, like other audio monitor, has very attractive price that everyone can afford. In affordable price range, AC420 therefore provide very simple features but I think for an audio baby monitor, these features are enough. AC420 show indicators in a full color digital display which is easy to read. The temperature of nursery room is shown on the center of the screen with a column of sound light in the side. This portable with rechargeable parent unit has solid stand with function buttons below the screen which is very easy to operate. For design of this AC420, I see nothing special but everything is very suitable and easy for user to operate on it. Its pros and cons:
