Peace of mind
This was fantastic, having a very early bub with poor immature lungs having this product was essential. I was able to sleep a litle easier and after it alarming when bub was having aponeas i swear by it. PLease when setting it up keep in mind of above ceiling aircons. this interferes with motion somehow.
Well worth cost. Light was handy. Accurate
This monitor I have found to be fantastic. I must admit, we never used the breathing sensor pads because our bub had such seve reflux that he had to sleep virtually upright propped up on so much stuff that the sensor pads wouldn't have worked. However, as far as the sound sensor is concerned i can only say good things. We never got interference from other electrical appliances, phones and the like. Can hear dogs barking down the street through it, but you get used to what you need to hear and what you don't. I do a lot of gardening and I chose ...this for the range - this was great and worked at the other end of the yard, halfway down the street, in the neighbours house etc. while I probably could have gone for a model without the sensor pads in retrospect, I will probably give them a shot if and when there is a number two! Nightlight is also great and soft enough that I don't think it will become habit forming. Reliable, sensitivity great, excellent range
One of the best buys for me and my family
This gave (and still gives) complete peace of mind that when my baby is sleeping and I can't physically hear her she is still fine. I can sleep more happily knowing that if something were to happen, an alarm would sound. I love that I can see the temperature in her room and the night light makes it great for night time feeds. Overall I would not be without this one.
The only drawback is that it takes a bit of setting up and it's not as effective with a ceiling fan on. (Still love it despite this though!!)
Complete peace of mind, see the temperature, night light is perfect
Takes a bit of time to set up properly and can't have a fan on or window open for it to work at it's best.
This invention is the most ever great things made for your child and parents the safety factor alone and knowing you can keep an ear out from other parts of the house and relax because you can monitor your child without being in the same room great invention very happy ...
the whole aspect of safety for your child
Peace of mind for mum and dad!
I love that this has a movement monitor which sounds a loud alarm if bub stops breathing for 20 seconds. As a new parent, I felt that I could relax when I put our son to bed knowing that I didn't have to check on him every few minutes to see that he was still alright!
The soft night light on the nursery unit is just the right amount of brightness, although the blinking 'pendulum' light is a little too bright and distracting. Having said that, it's nice being able to look up at the blinking light to know all is well. I also like the pendu...lum ticking sound that you can choose to have on or off, and the temperature display is a nice touch as well. If you need to change the settings for any reason, I found it to be a bit complicated and would always have to get the instruction manual out to check what everything meant. We have also had a couple of false alarms (only to the extent of the initial warning beep) as our son loves to lie right on the edge of his moses basket and possibly rolled off the sensor pads underneath the mattress. They were definitely false alarms as our son was wiggling around at the time at the edge of the moses basket trying to go to sleep. As another reviewer mentioned, there is a thin cord that runs from the sensor pad to the nursery unit. As our son is still in his moses basket, this means the cord has to run over the inside edge of the basket, which could potentially pose a strangulation hazard. Overall, this is a nice and compact little unit that looks great and gives us peace of mind. Looks good, works well, gives us peace of mind Occasional false alarm, changing settings is tricky (not intuitive) so you have to pull out the instruction manual.
best baby product i ever bought!!!!
I bought this monitor for my son who is now 3 and am now using it for my daughter who is 6 months it has sensor pads under the mattress to give you peace of mind when your little one is sleeping it has a temperature monitor as well as the usual sound monitor and when your baby stops breathing it sounds an alarm both in the baby's room and on your hand held parent control no more worrying that they are breathing or not . I have had it now for three years and never had a single problem love love love it : )
clear reception no interference variable volume control
nothing i could find
Absolutely invaluable. Cannot live without it!
The Angelcare monitor with sensors is the best investment you could make for the safety of your new bubba.
We were going to buy just a sound monitor but opted for the sensor pads. A-Mazing. Love it! Love it! For a first time mama, the worry of checking on baby every minute of the night left me sleepless and stressed. The Angelcare has given me many a peaceful nights sleep, knowing that the sensor pads will detect and let me know if something is amiss.
Reliable, easy to use, provides complete peace of mind, great investment
Peace of Mind
We bought this as the lady in the shop (baby bunting) recommended it. I also looked on this site, and likes the reviews for it. We love it that our baby (who hated sleeping in his bassinet and so was in his cot from week 2) was being looked after even though we were up the other end of the house. We could hear him easily, could turn the sensitivity down (we didn't need to hear EVERY gurgle, however cute!) and loved the pads underneath. Peace of mind knowing he was breathing all the time...
The only thing that took a bit of getting used to was ...
Do not buy
I have this monitor and have had nothing but trouble with it. I have to move it back and forth when I put it on the charger to try and get the charger to pick up that it is on there. Parts of the screen have blacked out multiple times so I could not read the temp and recently it has started making a constant fuzzy noise. I have to turn it right down so I don't hear the constant fuzzy noise in order to sleep, which defeats the purpose of the monitor.
I am buying a new one of a different brand and would NEVER recommend this unreliable monitor to anyone.
When the screen is working i like that it has the temp. But really not much
Unreliable. Kept breaking down
Great for peace of mind
Great monitor only issue is had to replace power adapter after a year and a half and having constant charging issues even though i replace the batteries every few months. Not cheap for the rechargeable
Peace of mind when baby is sleeping
Not even 2 years before problems started to occur
Very happy with Angelcare monitor
Very happy with Angelcare baby monitor never had a prob i felt i sleep so much better with it on and when my child was 2 i finally took it of and it took me ages to sleep prob coz i was so worried but it would the best thing i can not rave about this product enough it is excellent
I like that you could turn it on censor sound so it only made a noise when the baby did as i am a light sleeper
Peace of mind
Gives great peace of mind.
It senses even the smallest breathe movement to reassure you your baby is OK - I keep forgetting to turn it off when I pick her up when she wakes at night and it goes off very loud, so there is no way you could sleep through it if your baby stopped moving.
There is an annoying feature were it beeps with every baby movement (i.e. every breathe) and it sounded like a heart monitor and my husband couldn't sleep through it. We had trouble turning it off (because we had no idea what it was or why it was doing it as a...pparently this feature is normally off when you buy it), but rang the manufacturer and they were great and helpful. Despite sleepy user forgetfulness and it going off in the middle of the night, it is easy to use and the digital monitor means the noise clarity is great. Reliable Expensive (but well worth the expense)
Easy peace of mind.
Really easy to use straight out of the box. No interference. Handy temp gauge. Small parents unit that doesn't look too awful. Nice long cord. Handy very soft nightlight.
Can be quite sensitive and give false warning alarms although the only 2 times the alarm has properly gone off we are pretty certain my sons breathing had stopped as he was in a very deep sleep and floppy when we scooped him up.
No interference. Easy to use. Handy temp gauge and nightlight.
Can be a bit sensitive.
Peace of mind - when baby sleeps mummy sleeps!
Love this product as it gives peace of mind that my babies are sound asleep - not crying or stopping breathing - when i would usually be out of earshot.
3 in one. its a thermometer, a sound monitor and a movement monitor. Peace of mind to me is definitely worth the price. also like that you can turn off certain settings when not needed. we continued just using the sound for our son when he was in a bed and the movement sensors were no longer needed.
it has gone off a few times. though unsure if these were false alarms or if they were life saving...
Every parent should own one
I bought this monitor for my second child. Since birth she has had a chronic respiratory disease. This monitor gives me the piece of mind that when she is sleeping I know she is ok.
It is also helpful in that I can hear what is happening as well as see what the temperature is like in her room
Reliable, secure, confidence building
Questions & Answers
Is there a second pad that can be connected to the ac027
Thank you for the question. Was this for an additional child or for an additional pad under the same mattress?

Angelcare movement monitor states " senses movement". Does this movement include breathing? Might sound like a silly question but if you have a new born and they are fast asleep then they won't be moving as in wriggling around. Want to clarify if the " movement" covers breathing in and out?
It covers movement. If baby is in bassinet their breathing is picked up as movement (as I used it from newborn with all mine in a bassinet and it worked - not sure about cot as the mattress is thicker and baby at newborn is small) however if baby is not breathing but having a seizure of something it won't pick up that the baby needs help as baby is moving. I think there is one company that have a sock that works as a heart rate monitor so alarms will go off if baby isn't breathing. Hope this helped
Thank you for your enquiry.
The Angelcare sensor pad senses all movement in the cot, including your baby's breathing.
Hope this helps.

Hi. Can a AC601 monitor work with the AC401? I have tried to link up the AC401 sensor pad with the AC601 monitor, but it doesn't appear to be compatible. Please advise?
All the Angelcare monitors are their own integrated system, therefore can not have other model numbers added to them.
