Hi I'm just wondering, how common it is for the sensor to have multiple false alarms? So for example the pass 3 nights the alarm has gone off once bub has gone to sleep, I thought it was him not breathing but now I'm not sure? And tonight it had gone off 2 times in the space of 2 hrs, I have taken my son to the drs in case it is him but it is still making me extremely unsettled :/ I will be double checking the device and changing the batteries and see if that makes a difference
Giving us peace of mind! Highly Recommend!
We cannot recommend this device enough! We are very satisfied with its reliability and quality especially that it gives us peace of mind now that our baby is in his cot in his nursery in a seperate room from us now. The unit and the pads were simple and quick to set up. And we love the newer sleeker design still giving that continuous monitoring and both the audible and visual alarm if needed. A great product which we are glad we invested in! Highly recommend.

Great at its core function but the button is stupid!
We purchased this product at the end of last year for the arrival of our baby in January 2019. Initially we couldn’t set it up because the cord from the sensor pad to the controller was too short to reach to the top edge of our bassinet. (We have a side sleeper style bassinet which we use as a stand alone..) We eventually ended up unzipping a corner to hook up the device. I cannot complain one bit about the core function of this product, sensing baby’s movement. We haven’t had any false alarms and as we often forget to turn it off when we take baby out and set off the alarm we know that it works well. Now to the reason we forget to turn it off. The button to turn it on and off is the stupidest thing about this product. It is loud to turn on which is annoying if you are putting your bub down asleep or are turning it on after they have been asleep for a while, I know the noise definitely disturbs our little guy. On top of that it can also be a bit “dicky” and not turn on/off properly. And the thing I dislike the most is the lights on the button. It flashes red when you turn it on which is fine but then it continues to flash a blue light while it’s on. So if the bassinet is parked next to your bed you have a disco strobe light blaring at you all night. It only took me one night of that to decide to put a wash cloth over it to significantly dull the strobe affect. Once we move bub into his cot in his room we will still need to do that as well as there is floor to ceiling wardrobe mirrors in his room which will make it look like a rave party in there. I do not understand why the noise while turning it on has to be so loud or why it has a flashing blue light. If they wanted some indictor to show that it is on they could just use a constant dull (white) light around the button while on.... we are so frustrated with it that my husband is going to pull it apart and either cover the lights with something or take them out completely which will make it hard to tell if it’s on.
Great for piece of mind
Great product, works really well and fantasric for new or nervous mums wanting piece of mind their baby is fine while sleeping in their own cot! Its been an awesome product for us

Peace of mind!
Absolutely love our Oricom Baby sense monitor. It has provided us with peace of mind and allowed us to sleep well. We have only had three false alarms in 6 months. However we believe this is where our big rolled off the sensor, so essentially it is doing its job! Only downfall is it (monitor) doesn’t have white noise as a music feature and hard to put in a bassinet.
I absolutely love this would definitely recommend this to anyone out there. Being a first time mom just gives us more peace of mind when going to sleep at night. Ours only went off once and it was because the battery was low. Definitely worth the money

Great for peace of mind when bub is sleeping!
Babysense has given me peace of mind while bub sleeps. The sensors have only gone off once, and it was a result of bub wriggling onto the side of the cot and off the sensor pads. Happy with this product.

Firstly the quality of the product is very good! We had no trouble setting it up. Before purchasing we did receive some negative feedback that the product wasn’t reliable as the alarm would sound for no reason. However we purchased it anyway for peace of mind and I thank my lucky stars everyday that we did! The monitor alarm alerted us on 3 separate occasions that my baby’s heart rate must of slowed, at 2 weeks old she was diagnosed with a heart defect which went undetected & she had open heart surgery to save her life. So for that reason I cannot recommend this product more highly! I will definitely be using this product with future babies.
We love this monitor. Definitely gives us peace of mind when we put our little man to sleep knowing that it is on. We had to make sure we had the sensors placed in the right spot but once we figured that out it’s been perfect. Highly recommend this product!
A staple piece for any babies nursery!
We absolutely love our Oricom Baby Sense monitor! This device has given us piece of mind for every nap our little boy has taken in his cot. The quality of this item is second to none and it will be a staple in all of our future children's nurserys. My little one is seven months old and we still use this device religiously, it has always been accurate for us, I'll be sad for the day when we don't anymore. The only thing I found was that when my son began moving and would find himself squashed on the edge of the cot, we would sometimes get false readings, that was until we added the other plate and adjusted where they were positioned.
Thank you Oricom for making an incredible device!
Perfect for peace of mind!
The Oricom Babysense2 is a fantastic movement monitor! It is extremely easy to set up and it’s great that it doesn’t require a power point to be plugged into. As a new mum, it provides peace of mind knowing that I will be alerted if my baby stops breathing. A definite must have for any new parent. Highly recommended!
Perfect for newborn
The BabySense2 comes with two sensor pads and so far we’ve only needed to use one for the bassinet. I was a bit worried initially as I read some negative reviews about using this with a bassinet. We have a Bed Nest and thankfully it fits perfectly. Our baby sleeps in her own room so we find this product essential. She’s not bothered by the blue flashing light. I find the light helpful for me to do quick checks on the baby from a distance, especially at night. It’s worked really well for us and I’d recommend this product for peace of mind and stress-free sleep for the parents.
Very reliable! Works great, easy to set up. Love how you don't have to plug it into a wall so you have have the bed anywhere in the room, especially for bassinets and traveling. One this is the monitor button click is a little loud and wakes baby when I turn it on some times.
Waste of money
The sensor worked great when bubs was using a bassinet, however we had to find a way to position the unit effectively as it is only made to be installed in between cot slats.
When we transitioned baby to a cot, we had multiple false alarms and figured it was due to him being more mobile; so we started using 2 sensor pads. This however, made the false alarms worse and the alarm now goes off multiple times a day, often waking us and the baby. (As if we needed to be even more sleep deprived!!)
It doesn’t seem to be able to detect when he has rolled onto his side and quite often starts sounding almost immediately after we turn it on so I know it’s not because bubs is in deep sleep. I run the performance tests daily and also have called the Oricom call centre who made me run a series of tests and advised me the monitor is “working”. No duh.
I’ve tried even putting plywood down so the sensor isn’t sitting on cot slats and that has not worked either. My son is now terrified of sleeping in his cot. This product has made sleep training very difficult and belongs in the junk. Furthermore, we purchased the babysense in a bundle with a monitor and the monitor doesn’t go off when the sleep alarm does!! Waste of money
Great peace of mind
Being a first time mum, I wanted to ensure safety as well as extra monthlong. This pack also came with the secureview 710 monitor and is used daily in our home. We have never had any faults or glitches with it and it gives us extra peace of mind when our little one is asleep
Not compatible with bassinets
The new design with short cords means it's not compatible with any bassinet. I contacted their customer service for solution, maybe a longer cord? Their only suggestion was to ruin the bassinet by cutting a hole in it to pass the cord through.
Baby store suggested I just use it when baby is in the cot... That defeats the purpose of the device. I bought it for piece of mind NOW.
My sister has a previous mail model which is great, this redesign is stupid. Please consider where this will be placed. It's not practical to cut holes and weaken the structure of a baby's bed.
Absolutely love our Babysense2 monitor! We have had other monitors in the past but the Oricom is by far the best one we have owned. So easy to use and perfect for keeping baby safe. Highly recommended this monitor and if you need support they are so helpful in every way.
Everyone should have one! Saves lives
I purchased one of your under matress breathing monitors 2nd hand from a close friend before the birth of my first child.. at 8 weeks old she stopped breathing in the middle of the night and the monitor saved my babies life! It woke me sirening and i was able to wake her and she started breathing again.... just had baby #2 in September and my one absolute must have purchase was a new breathing monitor... 2 weeks ago my little girl stopped breathing in the middle of the night just like her sister.. she was 6 weeks old and once again your incredible machines saved my daughter.. i still have 2 beautiful little girls in my life and that is only because of your company so thank you, thank you so so very much for inventing these machines and continuing to sell them and make them better and better every few years. Spending a few hundred dollars has kept them safe and allowed us to rest easy at night, they are worth every bit of money in this world because they save lives! Xxx
Peace of mind
Monitor is easy to set up, has excellent sound and a clear visual screen. The vibrate alert with additional volume options is excellent to wake Mum but not Dad (who needs to get up and work) overnight, however we can turn it up if necessary. The breathing sensors are an additional feature we haven’t yet needed to use but once bubs is rolling we will be and have tested them and feel confident about their use. Highly recommend.
