Place the parent unit within the operating range (see below) of the baby
unit. We recommend the parent unit is at least 1 metre away from the
baby unit to avoid audio feedback. If you still experience audio feedback,
move the parent unit and the baby unit farther apart. Place the baby unit
at least 1 metre away from the baby or crib.
NOTES
•
For better image quality, do not place the baby unit too far away from
your baby.
•
It is the caregiver’s responsibility to stay close enough to take care of any
eventuality.
3.5.2
Audio settings
The baby unit may not detect sounds when the sensitivity level is set
below a certain level. You may need to increase the sensitivity level
(see page 19).
You may need to turn the speaker volume louder on the parent unit to

Sensitivity
You can use the parent unit to change the sound sensitivity level of the
baby units from Level 1 to Level 5 (Maximum). The higher the sound
sensitivity level is set, the more sensitive the baby unit is in detecting
sounds for transmitting to the parent unit. The sensitivity level is preset
to Level 3.
If you want the baby unit to be very sensitive in detecting sounds,
you may set the sensitivity level to Level 5 (Maximum), so that the
baby unit will always detect any sounds including background noises
for transmitting to the parent unit. If you want the baby unit to be less
sensitive in detecting sounds, you may set the sensitivity level to a lower
level (Level 1 to Level 4), so that the baby unit will transmit sounds to
the parent unit only when your baby is very noisy or crying loudly.
