Important safety information
Your BT Baby Monitor 100 is designed to be an aid and should
not be used as a substitute for responsible and proper adult
supervision.
Make sure the Baby unit, Parent unit and mains adapter cable
are kept out of reach of your baby – at least one metre away.
Never place the Baby unit inside your baby’s cot, bed
or playpen.
Never cover your Parent or Baby units (e.g. with clothes,
towels or blankets).
Never use or place your Parent or Baby units in moist places or
near water.
If travelling abroad, make sure that the voltage shown on the
mains power adapter corresponds to the local mains power
before connecting to the power supply.
There is a risk of explosion if the batteries are replaced by an
incorrect type.
Dispose of used batteries according to the instructions.
Always dispose of batteries in accordance with applicable
waste disposal regulations, never in your household rubbish.
If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0808 100 6554*
Setting up
Parent unit
Battery performance - Parent unit
1. Plug the mains power cable into the socket marked
on the back of the Parent unit charger.
Connect the other end to the mains power and switch on.
2. Remove the battery compartment cover and insert the 2 x AA
rechargeable batteries into the battery compartment on the
Parent unit and replace the battery compartment cover as
shown. You should always ensure you have inserted batteries
in the Parent unit.
Rechargeable batteries in the Parent unit
give up to 14 hours continuous performance.
Please note however, that new batteries do
not reach full capacity until they have been
in normal use for several days.
Running rechargeable batteries right down
at least once a week will help them last as
long as possible. The charge capacity of
rechargeable batteries will reduce with time
as they wear out, so reducing the
performance time of the Parent unit.
Eventually they will need to be replaced.
New batteries can be obtained from the BT
Baby Monitor Helpline 0808 100 6554*.
The Parent unit rechargeable batteries will
lose charge over a period of time, even if
switched off.
Battery low warning – Parent unit
When the batteries are low – approximately
within 1 hour and 30 minutes of running
out – the Parent unit light will come on.
If the batteries are completely flat the
Parent unit will switch off.
Place the Parent unit back on the charger
to charge the batteries. It is advisable to
keep the Parent unit on the charger as
much as possible or ideally all the time.
To speed up the charging process turn the
Parent unit off when charging if it’s not
being used.
WARNING
3. Slot the Parent unit into the charger, the red charging light
comes on. Charge the batteries for 16 hours before switching
on the Parent unit.
Note: if you ever need to remove the batteries, remove the
battery compartment cover and tip the parent unit until they
slide out.
The re-chargeable battery icon
in
the battery compartment means that only
re-chargeable batteries can be used.
Never use non-rechargeable batteries in
your Parent unit. Use only the
recommended type – 2 x AA rechargeable
(1300mAh NiMH) batteries – using other
types could permanently damage your unit.
Charge the batteries in accordance with the
instructions given in this user guide.
The Parent unit can still be used when it is
in the charger.
If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0808 100 6554*

Setting up
Battery performance – Baby unit
The recommended batteries are 4 x AA
alkaline. Not included.
With new batteries, your Baby unit will
give up to 14 hours continuous
performance with the night lights
switched off. This will be less if the
lights are switched on.
When the Baby unit is not being used
and is disconnected from the mains
power, you should ensure you remove
the batteries. This will prevent the
batteries discharging.
It is recommended that the same
batteries should not be used for more
than 48 hours continuously. Use of old
batteries may result in the unit not
functioning correctly and could
damage the Baby unit.
Battery low warning – Baby unit
When the batteries are low –
approximately within 30 minutes of
running out – the Baby unit light
will come on. However, this
will depend on the type of
batteries used.
Temperature range
The features on your BT Baby Monitor
100 have been designed to work
normally at any temperature between
0°C and 40°C.
Baby unit
Once your Parent unit has been fully charged:
1. Plug the power cable into the socket marked
on the back of the Baby unit.
Connect the other end to the mains power and switch on.
Using batteries
Your Baby unit also works on battery power, so that you can
use it even when you are not near to a mains power socket or
during a power cut.
1. Using your finger or a coin, turn the battery lock on the back
of the Baby unit anticlockwise so the groove is vertical then
lift off the cover.
2. Insert 4 x AA alkaline batteries (not supplied) as shown.
Battery lock
Child tamper proof lock for
the battery compartment.
If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0808 100 6554*
Setting up
3. Replace the battery cover, turning the battery lock into the
vertical position again to lock it.
Check the connection
When both Units are switched on, the green link lights on both
Units will come on.
WARNING!
Use only the mains power adapter
supplied. Using an incorrect adapter
may permanently damage your BT
Baby Monitor 100.
If the link between the Units is broken at any time, the link
lights will turn red and flash slowly.
The Baby unit will only work from the
batteries if the mains power is off or
disconnected.
At the Parent unit, you will also hear an alert signal (3 beeps
every 30 seconds) to warn you that there is no communication
between the Units. If this happens, check that the mains
power is plugged in and switched on at the Baby Unit.
Also check that the units are within range of one another.
During continual use the Baby unit and Parent unit charger
power adapters may become warm to the touch. This is
normal and not something to be concerned about.
In the event of power failure, when the power is restored all
your settings will remain unchanged.
If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on 0808 100 6554*
