PRODUCT: Safety 1st High Clarity Digital Monitor (www.dorel.co.uk)Safety 1st High Clarity Digital Monitor

DESCRIPTION: A baby safety system with a Digitally Enhanced Cordless Technology (DECT) bandwidth. Includes portable Parent Unit (receiver) with LED indicator, Baby Unit (transmitter), 2 x 7.5v AC adapters, 3 x AAA rechargeable batteries for the parent unit, and an instructions guide.

ASSEMBLY: The monitor is very easy to set up and the instructions booklet is fairly comprehensive. Both the Parent and Baby Units come with AC adapters for connecting to plug sockets. The Baby Unit is positioned in the nursery, at least 1.5-2m (4-6’) away from your child. A flip-up compartment on the back of the unit reveals the connector point for the adapter to be attached to. The Parent Unit is placed in the same room as you, and at least 6m (20’) away from the Baby Unit in order to reduce feedback. This Parent Unit comes with a set of rechargeable batteries which must be inserted into the unit upon purchase. This requires the belt clip on the back of the unit to be rotated and removed, and the battery compartment unscrewed (a small crosshead screwdriver is required for this). The unit must be fully charged up with the adapter (approx. 16 hours) before using for the first time.

GOOD POINTS: The High Clarity Digital Monitor is a very slimline product with a simple modern design that is not overcomplicated to use. It has a great range (about 300m) and due to its own dedicated bandwidth has a secure connection and excellent quality reception with no interference.

The Baby Unit is compact, and has a tiny microphone and also an on/off button with LED indicator which signals linking and connection to the Parent Unit. A clever flap on the back of the unit (where the adaptor connects to) allows the unit to stand upright.

The Parent Unit is able to stand on its end, and has a useful belt clip on the back so that once it is charged it can be carried around with you at all times. On the front of the unit is a speaker as well as an on/off button, which also has an LED indicator that flashes to alert you to low batteries or loss of communication with the Baby Unit (full details on the LED indicator colours are provided in the instructions). Volume control buttons enable you to adjust the sound sensitivity so that you can pick up as much or as little of your baby’s sounds as you wish. The unit also has a sound activated light and volume display which allows you to see your child’s sounds even if you have turned the volume down.

In our opinion this is a great monitor, which is simple but sleek in appearance and has excellent sound quality.

BAD POINTS: The Baby Unit does not take batteries as a backup in case of a power failure. It is a basic style of monitor with no extra frills, however it is more than sufficient for any nursery.
