Everything I wanted and more

This is everything i wanted in a monitor and more. Pros: - screen is bright - night vision is quite bright - ON indicator on Angel attracts my daughters eyes so I can see eyes are open - I can set the threshold sound level to turn the monitory ON - light weight monitor and camera - two chargers for monitor and camera - easy and intuitive setup - ample battery on monitor in stand by. Using the video nets about 2-3 hours Cons: - have not used the movement pad and not sure i ever will Got this on sale and worth every penny. I would still recommend at regular price if you plan on using the movement pad. If not, price may be high.

An excellent monitor that gives you better sleep at night

As a first time mom (or perhaps a mom in general) who wakes up several times during the night to make sure our baby is ok, having a baby monitor that alerts you if the baby doesn't move for a while seemed like a great thing to acquire to get a little more sleep during the night. I was very excited to receive the monitor until I saw the movement sensor pad. For me it looked too small and too thick for anything that could work and be comfortable for my baby. But wow was I wrong! It ended up being the thing I love the most about this monitor. Yes, the first night we used it the alarm kept going off because my baby tends to move all over the place during the course of a night, but we fixed this by increasing the sensitivity of the pad. Another thing I love about this monitor is that you don't have to have the parental control on for the alarm to alert you when there's a lack of movements. The camera alerts you too! \Which is great for us who still has our little bundle of joy sleeping in the same room as us. Luckily the alarm from the camera comes with a slightly less annoying sound, that gets my baby moving without waking him up, but still wakes me up (think 90s radio alarm clock). The alarm does stop as soon as there is movement. One thing I found a little bit disappointing with this monitor is that the battery on the parental control doesn't last long. But that just mean that you keep the charging area in the room you spend the most time in when your baby sleeps. The picture on the parental control is very clear and it's easy to see if the baby is still on his back or not. After acquiring this baby monitor I have been sleeping better at night so I am very thrilled about this monitor!

Great monitor for parents who needs a little extra reassurance to be able to sleep better at night!

When I received the opportunity to try this baby monitor through the baby samplers club I didn't hesitate for a second to accept it. My husband and I were in the process of moving from an apartment to a townhouse so we were on the look for a baby monitor and this monitor was on the top of our list. As a first time mom (or perhaps a mom in general) who wakes up several times during the night to make sure our baby is ok, having a baby monitor that alerts you if the baby doesn't move for a while seemed like a great thing to acquire to get a little more sleep during the night. I was very excited to receive the monitor until I saw the movement sensor pad. For me it looked too small and too thick for anything that could work and be comfortable for my baby. But wow I was wrong! It ended up being the thing I love the most about this monitor.

The alarm does stop as soon as there is movement. One thing I found a little bit disappointing with this monitor is that the battery on the parental control doesn't last long. But that just mean that you keep the charging area in the room you spend the most time in when your baby sleeps. Needless to say, I do sleep better at night now

Full package monitor!

This monitor provides excellent peace of mind for parents while your baby sleeps. The video is very clear and the large display is great! After figuring out how to set up the sensor pad under the mattress, it works quite well. Definitely read all the instructions! I got this when my son was older, and already moving quite a bit, so it's nice that you can adjust the sensitivity. The video monitor angle can be awkward depending on your room set up, but just play around a bit and you'll be happy. Having tried traditional and video-only monitors, this Angel Care Monitor stacks up very well. A great product for parents looking for the full package!

Great video monitor

We have been using the monitor for about a week now. We are very pleased with the image quality; it's not grainy at all like other video monitors can be. We can see the baby very well, even when the room is darkened. The zoom in and out feature on the unit is a nice addition unlike other video monitors. We also like that you can adjust the sensitivity level of the sensor pad. However, it did take a bit of time to change the setting using the parent unit. The range provided between the baby unit and the parent unit is good and we haven't noticed any interference. Another nice feature of the monitor is that it provides information on the temperature in the nursery. This monitor gives us immense peace of mind since we can see baby when fussing - especially since we are sleep training. We can see when baby is just testing limits or really does need us. I highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a baby video monitor.

Great for Newborns

This monitor has great video quality (in a set position, not adjustable from parent base), it worked well when we remembered to turn the base in her room on. Often we would get her in the crib and try to make our escape but forgot to turn the base on. If she was still a super sleepy newborn we would have been able to go back in and turn it on with out waking her up. We didn't have any "false alarms" which is great because she is standing and moving around a fair bit. We liked knowing the temperature in her room and being able to see her without having to go in and check on her. We would also often forget to turn the camera off which meant we would get to our living room before hearing the alarm go off and have to go back to shut it off, so sometimes its a hassle. Overall, a good monitor with a learning curse to remember to turn on and off the camera.

ok but not great

Got this monitor when my daughter was 13mths old so didn't use the motion pad that came with this. Works well as a monitor, but is def not worth the price. Would be nice if it could play music or you could speak to your baby through the monitor PROS: nice screen, very clear image with great night vision. Night light is a nice gentle glow. Does not have a consistent white noise or hum while on, only hear sounds if baby moves/makes a noise. CONS: very limited features. Screen only stays on for max 3 minutes at a time. Can't control the night light from the monitor. The on/off button and the light button are behind the little "wings" on the monitor and are hard to reach while holding a sleeping baby. Plus the monitor cannot be mounted to the wall so need to find a place for it to stand on. Can't control the up/down movement of the camera from the monitor, only can do it manually Works great as a basic monitor, but does not have a lot of the features I had with a cheaper model. For the price it is, might as well get a fancy Motorola one that can move 360deg remotely... I did not use the motion pad, but is a nice feature. Took me a while to figure out how to turn it off though!

A must have!

I received the Angelcare 3.5" Video Baby Monitor (AC1300) a week ago from Best Buy as a free sample in their “Baby Sampler Club”. This is my honest review of the monitor system and all opinions stated are my own. I love this system!! The packaging is really clean and pretty looking. Inside the box is a large sensor pad to place under the mattress (for the breathing/movement part) as well as an angel shaped video camera and a handheld parent unit (and power cables). The system’s instructions were really clear and it was quick and easy to set up (5 minutes max!) although you have to wait a recommended 9 hours before removing the parent unit off the charger (for the first time). You can put three AA batteries into the angel shaped monitor incase the power goes out however they are not included in the package. I found that the sensor pad was very sensitive for my active sleeper, but she is also getting close to the end of the recommended age (they recommend to remove the sensor pad part at 24months). I did turn the sensitivity level down which helped but eventually turned that part of the system off. I would of LOVED that feature when my child was a lot younger though – it is great peace of mind when they are in a different room. The sound is fantastic on the parent unit, as is both the daytime and nighttime picture display. The camera in the room also has a built in nightlight that you can turn on or off depending on your child’s needs. I would highly recommend this system for any new parent!!

This monitor provides excellent peace of mind for parents! The video is very clear and the display is a great size. After figuring out how to set up the sensor pad under the mattress, it works quite well. Definitely read through all the instructions though! I got this when my son was a bit older, and already moving around quite a bit, so it's nice that the sensor can be adjust for sensitivity. I did find the video angle awkward depending on the room set up, but I just played around a bit to get it right. I'm really impressed with this monitor system as a full package!
