Important
Read these instructions for use carefully before you use the appliance and save them for future
reference.
This baby monitor is intended as an aid. It is not a substitute for responsible and proper adult
supervision and should not be used as such.
Check if the voltage indicated on the adapter corresponds to the local mains voltage before
you connect the appliance.
The appliance is suitable for mains voltages from 220 to 240V.
Except for the battery compartments, do not open the housing of the baby unit and parent
unit to prevent electric shock.
If the adapter of the baby unit or the parent unit is damaged, always have it replaced by one
of the original type to avoid a hazard.
If the charger of the parent unit is damaged, always have it replaced by one of the original
type to avoid a hazard.
Use and store the appliance at a temperature between 10°C and 40°C.
Do not expose the baby monitor to extreme cold or heat or to direct sunlight. (Fig. 2)
Make sure the baby unit and the cord are always out of reach of the baby (at least 1 metre/3
feet away).
Do not place the baby unit inside the baby’s bed or playpen.
Do not use the baby monitor in moist places or close to water.
Do not cover the baby monitor with a towel or blanket.
Do not immerse any part of the baby monitor in water or any other liquid.
Always place batteries of the correct type in the baby unit to avoid the risk of explosion.
Always replace the rechargeable battery pack of the parent unit with one of the correct type.
Only use the adapter supplied to connect the baby unit to the mains.
Only use the charger supplied to charge the parent unit.
The adapters contain a transformer. Do not cut off the adapters to replace them with other
plugs, as this will cause a hazardous situation.
Since continuous transmission is prohibited, you only hear your baby when it makes sounds.
The antenna of the parent unit is fixed. Do not pull at the antenna or bend it.
The antenna of the baby unit can be pulled out and turned upwards.
Preparing for use
Baby unit
You can use the baby unit from the mains or on batteries. Even if you intend to use the unit from

Frequently asked questions
Question Answer
Why does the baby monitor
have a smaller operating
range than the 200
meters/600 feet mentioned
under ‘Operating range’?
The specified range is only valid outdoors in open air. Inside your
home, the workable range is limited by the number and type of
walls and/or ceilings between the baby unit and the parent unit.
The maximum operating range inside your home is 50
meters/150 feet.
,
,
English
14
Page: 14
Question Answer
Why is the connection lost
every now and then?
The parent unit is probably close to the boundaries of the
operating range. Put the parent unit closer to the baby unit in a
place where it has a better reception. Please note that it takes
about 30 seconds before connection is re-established when you
move one or both units.
What happens if there is a
power supply failure?
If you have placed batteries in the baby unit, the baby
unit switches to battery operation. If the battery pack of the
parent unit is sufficiently charged, the parent unit starts to run on
battery power.
Why does the parent unit
not work even though it is
placed in the charger?
When the battery pack of the parent unit is low, you have to
charge it for up to 20 minutes before you can operate the parent
unit on mains power.
Why can I not use the
parent unit cordlessly for 12
hours on a fully charged new
battery pack?
You have to charge and discharge a new battery pack three times
before it reaches its full capacity.
Why does the parent unit
run less than 12 hours on a
full charge?
Perhaps the volume is set too high.When the volume is set to a
high level, the parent unit consumes more power. Set the volume
to a lower level.
A battery pack that has been in use for quite some time gradually
loses its capacity.When this happens, you get fewer running hours
on a full charge.
If you start to use the parent unit again after some time, the
battery pack may have lost some of its charge. Place the parent
unit in the charger to recharge the battery pack.
Why do the power light and
the display of the baby unit
not go on when I press the
POWER button?
The batteries are empty. Replace the batteries.
You have not plugged in the baby unit. Insert the small plug in the
socket on the baby unit and insert the adapter in the wall socket.
Why does the battery empty
symbol on the display of the
baby unit light up and why
does the power light blink?
The batteries are low. Replace the batteries.
Why do the batteries of the
baby unit run out so quickly?
Perhaps you have set the microphone sensitivity level too high. Set
the microphone sensitivity to a lower level.
The volume has been set too high. Set the volume to a lower
level.
English 15
Page: 15
Question Answer
Why do the power light and
the SYSTEM CHECK light of
the parent unit not go on
when I turn theVOLUME
control to switch on the
parent unit?
The battery pack is low. Recharge the battery pack.
The battery pack has reached the end of its life. Replace the
battery pack.
I try to use the parent unit
on mains power, but the
power light and SYSTEM
CHECK light do not go on
when I place the parent unit
in the charger.Why?
Perhaps you forgot to plug in the charger. In that case, plug in the
charger. If the battery pack is entirely empty, you have to charge it
for 20 minutes before you can run the parent unit from the mains.
Why does the parent unit
beep?
This signifies that the units are out of range from each other. Place
the parent unit closer to the baby unit.
The batteries of the baby unit may be low. Replace the batteries.
The battery pack of the parent unit is low. Recharge the battery
pack.
The parent unit cannot establish connection with the baby unit
even though it is close to the baby unit. Reset the baby unit.
The baby unit is not switched on. Press the POWER button on
the baby unit to switch it on.
Why does the SYSTEM
CHECK light on the parent
unit blink red?
This signifies that the units are out of range from each other. Place
the parent unit closer to the baby unit.
The batteries of the baby unit are low. Replace the batteries.
The battery pack of the parent unit is low. Recharge the battery
pack. If recharging does not help, replace the battery pack.
The parent unit cannot establish connection with the baby unit
even though it is close to the baby unit. Reset the baby unit. 
The baby unit is not switched on. Press the POWER button on
the baby unit to switch it on.
Why does the battery pack
of the parent unit not
charge? 
Perhaps the charger is not plugged in properly. Insert the small
plug in the charger and insert the adapter in the wall socket.
If the battery pack fails to charge when the charger is plugged in
properly, the battery pack has reached the end of its life. Replace
the battery pack.
Why does charging the
battery pack of the parent
unit take much longer than
14 hours?
The parent unit was switched on for mains operation during
charging. Switch off the parent unit during charging to prevent a
longer-than-usual charging time.
English

Question Answer
Why does the operating
time of the rechargeable
battery pack decrease after
each new charging cycle?
The battery pack approaches the end of its life and soon has to
be replaced.The life of the battery pack decreases if you leave the
parent unit continuously connected to the mains by placing it in a
plugged-in charger.
Why does the parent unit
react too slowly to the baby’s
sounds? 
The microphone sensitivity level on the baby unit is too low. Set
the microphone sensitivity to a higher level.
Move the baby unit closer to the baby. Make sure the baby unit is
at least 1 metre/3 feet away from your baby.
Why does the parent unit
react too quickly to ambient
sounds?

the microphone sensitivity to a higher level.
Move the baby unit closer to the baby. Make sure the baby unit is
at least 1 metre/3 feet away from your baby.
Why do I get no sound out
of the parent unit?
The parent unit is set to a different channel than the baby unit. Set
