Perfect value for money.

published

I have this monitor set up stairs in the nursery and the sound Quality is maintained even with increased distance. The sound is not so clear, however the light function is useful to eliminate 'noise' and still know when baby is crying or awake. The movement pad is invaluable. Having had premi babies, knowing the pad would sense decreased movement was a big relief. I was able to leave baby in another room without feeling the need to check every 10 mins or so! it wild be great to have an additional sound monitor so you could use one in a cot for day sleeps and another in the bassinet at night.

Great product

published

I have had this product for a number of years. It is easy to use and set up. It has the longest range in reception compared to others. It is clear and has multiple functions available. We loved this one after returning 2 others. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Scratchy

published

We bought this model for our second child and found the quality to be scratchy and range not as effective as the deluxe model we bought for our 1st child.

The deluxe model has a better quality sound - although we never used the sensor mats that just frustrated me.
In hindsight I would have spent a little more for a better quality monitor.

Very reliable and definitely worth more than what they cost

published

We got this when it was on Sale.
Very sensitive, so sensitive that it picked up the wind and very reliable. This is actually our second unit. We now have 2 units at home. All reliable and worth more than they cost. The sensitivity can be adjusted to suit what you want.


Fantastic customer service

published

We have had the AC420 for 2 years now. It worked perfectly up until recently when the parent unit was intermittently charging then suddenly stopped charging all together. We called the customer service and they were fantastic. The lady that assisted us went through both the parent and nursing unit and identified the problem (the parent unit cradle) and sent us a new one.

Another great product

published

This is our second Angelcare monitor. Used in our toddlers room, (we have AC401 in our newborns room) I'm a huge fan of these monitors. The AC420 is very easy to set up and very easy to use. Having two monitors of the same brand there has been no interference between them as they are on different channels. The sound is clear and the temperature easy to read. One of our best choices for baby monitor for both our boys.


Works great through soundproof walls

Excellent quality monitor that works simply

published

My wife and I use the Angelcare AC420 monitor at home with our bub. I have to commend the build quality and performance of the unit as it feels and performs robustly. We would roam around our two storey house and venture outside and the unit continues to work flawlessly.

Excellent monitor, great customer service

awesome , excellent range

published

works very well. has atleast 150 m range after going through 3 walls. doesnt seem to go through tin shed walls. this is great if you just want a sound monitor and it has the room temperature. The sound is very clear. It beeps if you get out of range from base unit. Very easy to use and set up. also has a soft night light. Havnt had a problem with interference from wifi or cordless phone or telstra booster. this is highly recommended.


Good product

published

Very happy with this product, easy to use and love the temperature display. I did however find out that the range is not as quoted in the manual. The only way to achieve the range is to be in an open field or massive warehouse - confirmed by AngelCare in Australia and Canada.
I did find out that - Brick house, steel framed houses and verandahs/patios with steel frames and WiFi devices all interfere with the range of the device! Something for people to be aware of as I live on 2.5 acres and I can't go 10m from my house.
Great product for inside the house

Pretty good

published

This is a basic function essentially to alert parent or carer of noise in babies nursery which the monitor does quite well. Love that the temperature is monitored and displayed so clearly on the portable unit - however only downside is I find the channels and display of a bit ridiculous how they change to some sort of error - this aspect is not logical or easy to use especially for a sleep deprived parent even though I am tech savvy.

Good

published

Before I made the purchase, I read all the reviews from the product review's web and found that there were good feedbacks and ratings from users so I bought this when its on sale and it works great. I even asked the shop assistant and they fully recommend this. I was told that Angelcare is reliable and the top range compares to other brand.

I love the temperature indicator and the halo night light where you can turned on/off. Too bad the battery on handset is easily drained. But overall its a good product to buy , no regrets :)
Temperature indicator, no sound interference from nearby wireless phone or other sound monitors, less radiation
The handset battery easily drained.

Excellent

We originally purchased a Fisher Price as I didn't want to spend that much on a monitor, but was fed up with the static noise that kept me up all night. Then I decided to try Angelcare to ease my mind, and don't regret it at all. Should have spent that extra money in the first place.
Very very quiet, no static noise or interference, very happy with the product!
It was too quiet that I thought the parent unit wasn't working!

Reliable!

published

We have been using Angel Care (Model # AC420) for two years now, and it proved to be a reliable one.
interference (accept for one/two days, and was solved with changing the chanel), excellent battery life, soft blue night light.
I think it was expensive, that's the only con I have against it.

You can adjust the sensetivity with the knob on the back of the room unit if you have it turned up all the way it will be a continuous transmutation but if you turn it down if wont

Love it!

published

This was money well spent!! I have had this monitor for 2 weeks and I am in love!! I previously had the AngelCare Deluxe but I often wished it had video and this monitor does it all.

My only negative thing is I wish it had a 2nd handset!
reliable, great peace of mind!

Do you think the problem might be that you're a software developer and you're trying to approach the problem with logic?

Think about it... most parents needing baby monitors are new parents and deprived of sleep, and the last thing they will be is logical. (Well, the last thing they will actually be is 'intimate with each other because of lack of sleep' - the second-last thing they will be is logical.)

Perhaps the design of this baby monitor is so ingenious that they made the controls so utterly illogical that their target market (sleepless first time parents) find it simple and easy to use.

Just my illogical thoughts...
