Overview of your Baby unit
Important guidelines for installing your Baby
Monitor
•
To use your baby unit and parent unit together, you
must be able to establish a radio link between them,
and the range will be affected by environmental
conditions.
•
Any large metal object, like a refrigerator, a mirror, a
filing cabinet, metallic doors or reinforced concrete,
between the baby and parent unit may block the radio
signal.
•
The signal strength may also be reduced by other solid
structures, like walls, or by radio or electrical
equipment, such as TVs, computers, cordless or
mobile phones, fluorescent lights or dimmer switches.
•
Use of other wireless products, such as wireless
networks, Bluetooth systems or microwave ovens may
cause interference with this product, so keep the baby
monitor away from these types of products, or turn
them off if they appear to be causing interference.
•
If the signal is poor, try moving the parent and/or the
baby unit to different positions in the rooms.
•
It is recommended to place the baby unit about 3 feet
from the Crib to ensure sound can be received and
heard.
•
It is essential to ensure sufficient clear space around
the baby unit.
