Excerpt: My husband and I have twins. Alas the problem, two of everything pretty much. The Angel Care monitor is a must for us-- it helps me sleep at night knowing I will be woken up if the unthinkable happens. That said, we have had our share of false alarms. While I'd rather have 10,000 false alarms than miss the one that would save my child's life, it is a heart attack in a package.My main complaint, and granted, this is our personal situation, is that it is not "multiple...
Excerpt: It's difficult to review this product because I think it's really a very personal decision. I received the AngelCare monitor as a gift and I will tell you - it comes with it's fair share of heart attacks. It's very difficult to position the mat underneath the mattress so perfectly under the baby so that it detects movement and breathing. And then when babies sleep very soundly and breathe very slowly, it's a fire drill waiting to happen.
Summary: It does help a lot the movement sensor, thats the big value of this product. But there are some big issues: - the sound monitor doesnt work in my house for distances higher than 10 meters, even changing the channel. - even on distances lower than 10 meters, there is to much noise on the sound. - the temperature sensor doesnt show the correct number. I set my AC to 20 °C and the display keep showing 28°C! For a long time!
Movement sensor is OK but temprature monitoring is NOT

Summary: We bought this monitor in July and started to use it in November, just after our baby was born. We keep the parent unit mainly in the leaving room and can hear whenever baby cries very clearly. The movement sensor seems to work properly so far and we like the "Tic" option. The device has an option to monitor the room temperature, but whenever I activate it the alarm (falsely) starts in a couple of minutes.
... say there are a few things that I don't like about this product

Summary: I bought this for our daughter but I must say there are a few things that I don't like about this product. I didn't use the sensor pad because the cot bed mattress is thin and I thought my LO will be uncomfortable. I found it very complicated to setup. The main unit: - Little green light is too bright for my taste - When you need to turn the unit on when your baby sleeps already noise is quite loud (all those little details count when you haven't slept in weeks having a...
Summary: Its pretty good, comes with a lot of functions, and is pretty easy to setup. My one complaint is there doesn't seem to be a way of easily telling the unit you have removed the baby from the cot. The number of times we have lifted the baby from the cot because they needed comforting for the alarm to then wake the whole house.
Summary: This monitor for the money is good value, however it comes with downsides. We have been using it for six months now, and whilst the pad is great, and the alarm certainly wakes you up, which, lets face it is why you buy it the system itself has other bug bares. The main one is the way the unit kicks in, this can be for minor things, and as a result can disturb your sleep, when baby is doing also!
Excerpt: This worked well at first. But after just over a year the screen on the parent unit started to miss some of the lines of pixels so that it becomes unreadable. Obviously being out of warranty angelcare didn't want to know unless you wanted to buy a new parent unit for £25+ postage. Gonna sell this one as faulty and buy a different one for baby no.2. It's also a bit bulky if you take it on holiday too.
Summary: This needs so many plugs to set up we haven't used it yet, after thinking it would be the best item we bought we gave up while the baby was in the Moses basket and just moved her round the house with us. We will probably use this once she is in her cot and in her own room as then we don't need to move all the wires and parts around. So wont be using this until she is 5/6 months.
