Unisar Digital Thermometer User's Manual

INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the BébéSounds®
Remote Fever Monitor. This Thermometer will
enable you to monitor your baby’s fever from
another room, 24 hours a day. With the Remote
Fever Monitor you will be immediately alerted
if your child’s temperature has spiked up.
The Remote Fever Monitor takes your baby’s
temperature abdominally. The Thermometer
clips to the waistband of your baby’s diaper,
pajamas, or the special belt provided. Be sure
the sensor is touching the skin and that your
baby is wearing clothing that covers the stomach
to avoid the loss of body heat. The baby’s
temperature is taken every 5 seconds and is
transmitted to the portable Parents’ Unit (the
receiver) every 10 seconds.
The Parents’ Unit monitors your child’s temperature and can be set to alert you if it reaches a
certain level. If your child is not feeling well,
you will be immediately alerted if his/her temperature starts to rise.
This product is recommended for use with
children under 8 years old.
Warning: Consult your doctor of there is a
pacemaker present. This product is not a toy.
Do not allow children to play with it. Keep out
of children’s reach when not in use. Always use
under adult supervision.

Use of the Remote Fever Monitor should not
replace a visit to your doctor. It is recommended
that you advise your doctor any time a
temperature is above 100°F/37.8°C.
NOTE: Rectal temperature readings are more
accurate than abdominal readings. Temperatures
taken abdominally may be .7°~1.4°F (.4°C~.8°C)
lower than rectal readings. For example, if the
Remote Fever Monitor registers an abdominal
temperature of 100°F, your child’s temperature
may actually be 100.7°-101.4°F. This differential
should be considered when monitoring your
child’s temperature.
The Remote Fever Monitor is a Personal Care
Product and cannot be returned to the retailer.
All exchange and refund requests should be
directed to the BébéSounds® Help Desk. Call us

baby’s diaper, pajamas, or
our special belt, approximately one inch (2-3 centimeters) to the left of the
belly button. If you are using
the belt provided, it’s best to
fasten it over the diaper or
pajamas to avoid any
possible irritation. Make
sure the temperature sensor
on the back of the unit is in
contact with the skin and that
your baby is wearing clothing
covering the stomach to avoid the loss of
body heat.

Remember, temperature readings taken abdominally may be
.7°~1.4°F (.4°C~.8°C) lower than rectal readings. This differential should be considered when monitoring your child’s temperature and when you set the alarm. For example, you may
want to set the alarm for 100 if you want to know if your
child’s fever reaches 101. (See Note on P. 3)

dropping them.
Poor Reception
Cause: Child’s Thermometer is not sending a
signal or the distance between both units is
beyond the specified range for over 40 seconds.
2. Clean both units with a soft cloth moistened
with either water or alcohol. Never use an
abrasive.
3. Keep out of the reach of children and in the
storage case when not in use. The optimal
storage temperature is between -4°~140°F/20°~60°C.
4. Do not disassemble the thermometer.
