Important safety information
• Your BT Digital Video Baby Monitor 1000 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 adaptor cables 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
adaptor 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. Only
use the supplied battery for the Parent unit (or a replacement as advised by the
Helpline). Only use x4 AA batteries (not supplied) for the Baby unit. You can use
rechargeable batteries but the Baby unit will not charge them.
• Dispose of used batteries according to the instructions. Do not dispose of
batteries in a fire as they may explode.
• Only use the power adaptor cables supplied. Using an incorrect power adaptor
could seriously damage the product.
If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on Freephone 0808 100 6554* or visit www.bt.com/producthelp
Important safety information
• Do not try and disassemble, open or remove parts of the product. Contact the

warm to the touch. This is normal and is not something to be concerned about.

WARNING
Only use the battery supplied.
Using another type could
permanently damage the unit.
Battery performance
The operating time for using the
rechargeable battery is limited. It
will last for approximately 6 hours
in standby mode but this will vary
depending on the sensitivity level
you have set, your actual use and
the age of the battery. Therefore,
if you want to monitor your baby
for long periods we strongly
recommend you connect the
power adaptor to the Parent unit,
especially at night.
Please note that new batteries
do not reach full capacity until
they have been in normal use
for several days. 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 Digital
Video Baby Monitor 1000
Helpline on 0808 100 6554*.

The Parent unit rechargeable
battery will lose charge over
a period of time, even if

If the Parent unit is not going
to be used for a long time,
remove the battery to prevent
any possible leakage.
Battery low warning
When the battery is low the
screen will display Battery

also flash and you will hear
a short alert beep. You will
need to recharge the Parent
unit without interruption for
approximately 30 minutes to
give the Parent unit enough
charge to use for a short time.
If the Parent unit is turned off
during charging, the battery
will charge more quickly.
WARNING
4. Leave the battery to charge continuously for 12

distance from one another, e.g. in separate rooms.
Operating range
The operating range is up to 300 metres outdoors
and 50 metres indoors. The actual operating
range may vary depending on the environmental
conditions and other interferences such as walls,
doors and other obstructions.
The Baby unit may not detect sounds when the
sensitivity level is set below a certain level so you
may wish to increase the sensitivity level, see page
32. You may also need to turn the loudspeaker
volume up on the Parent unit to hear the sounds
transmitted from the Baby unit, see page 27.
If you experience any problems, please call the Helpline on Freephone 0808 100 6554* or visit www.bt.com/producthelp

button on the Parent unit.
Sensitivity level
You can change the sensitivity level of sounds
being received from the Baby unit from Level 1 to

unit will detect any sounds including background
noises. If you want it to be less sensitive in detecting
sounds, you may wish to set the sensitivity to a
lower level (Level 1 – 4), so that the Baby unit will
transmit sounds to the Parent unit only when your
