evaluation of the interference between portable
wireless devices and implanted cardiac pacemakers.
Supported by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration,
WTR recommends to physicians that:
Pacemaker patients
• Should keep wireless devices at least six inches
from the pacemaker.
• Should NOT place wireless devices directly over the
pacemaker, such as in a breast pocket, when it is
turned ON.
WTR’s evaluation did not identify any risk to
bystanders with pacemakers from other persons using
wireless devices.

de base afin de réduire les risques d’incendie,
d’électrocution et de blessures corporelles, dont ceux
qui suivent :
1. Observez toutes les instructions et mises en garde
inscrites sur l’appareil.
2. L’installation par un adulte est requise.
3. Ce produit a été conçu pour être un dispositif
d’appoint seulement. Il n’est pas le remplacement
d’une supervision responsable et adéquate par un
adulte et ne devrait pas être utilisé comme telle.
4. Ce produit n’est pas conçu pour être utilisé en tant
que moniteur médical.
5. N’utilisez pas cet appareil près de l’eau ni de toute
autre source d’humidité, par exemple, près d’une
baignoire, cuve à lessive, évier de cuisine, dans
un sous-sol humide ni près d’une piscine, dans un
soussol humide ou une douche.
6. MISE EN GARDE: Il peut y avoir un risque
d’explosion si vous utilisez le mauvais type de piles
pour l’unité du parent. N’utilisez que le bloc-piles
rechargeable inclus ou le bloc-piles de rechange
(BT198555/BT298555). N’incinérez pas les piles.
Celles-ci risqueraient d’exploser. Jetez les piles
usées selon les renseignements suivant le sceau
du RBRC®.
7. N’utilisez que les adaptateurs inclus avec ce

remplacer le bloc-piles.
11. Ne coupez pas les cordons d’alimentation pour
remplacer les fiches, car ceci peut présenter un
danger potentiel.
Night vision
The baby unit has infrared LEDs that allow
you to see your baby clearly at night or in a
dark room. When the baby unit detects low
light levels, the infrared LEDs are switched on
automatically.
NOTE
When the infrared LEDs are on, the image is in
black and white. This is normal due to external light
sources.

Why does the
parent unit
beep?
The baby units may be out of range.
Move the parent unit closer to the
baby units (but not less than 3 feet).
If the parent unit is powered by the
provided battery, it may not have
enough charge for the parent unit to
perform normally. Charge the
battery in the parent unit for up to
3 hours.
Why doesn’t
my parent unit
charge while
connected to
AC power?
Make sure the power is not
controlled by a wall switch.
Why is my
screen in
black and
white?
The screen is in black and white
during nighttime or in a dark room.
This is normal due to external light
sources.
Why do I get
glare or blurry
display on my
screen when
viewing my
baby at night?
During nighttime or in a dark
room, the surroundings and other
interfering factors, like lightings,
objects, colors and backgrounds
may affect the image quality on
your parent unit screen. Adjust the
baby unit’s angle or place the baby
unit at a higher level to prevent
glare and blurry display.
Why does the
parent unit
beep/vibrate
frequently in
SPLIT-VIEW
mode?
You may have set the sound
sensitivity level to level 5 when the
sound alert (and vibration) feature
are turned on. The parent unit
notifies you of all sounds including
background noise with beeps
(or vibrations). Adjust the sound
sensitivity to a lower level.
Why does the
baby monitor
produce a
high-pitched
noise?
The units may be too close to each
other. Make sure the parent unit
and the baby unit at least
1 meter/3 feet away from each
other.
Why does
the parent
unit react too
quickly to
other sounds?
The baby unit also picks up other
sounds than those of your baby.
Adjust the sensitivity level to a
lower level or adjust the speaker
volume on the parent unit.
You may have used the battery for
a long time. Replace a new battery.

Stimulateurs cardiaques implantés dans
l’organisme
Les simulateurs cardiaques (ne s’applique qu’aux
dispositifs numériques sans fil) :
L’organisme ‘Wireless Technology Research, LLC
(WTR)’, une firme de recherche indépendante, a mené
une évaluation pluridisciplinaire des interférences entre
les téléphones sans fil portatifs et les stimulateurs
cardiaques implantés dans l’organisme. Appuyée par
l’Administration des aliments et drogues (FDA) des
États-Unis, la firme WTR recommande aux médecins:
Avis aux détenteurs de stimulateurs cardiaques
• Vous devriez maintenir les dispositifs sans fil à au
moins six pouces du simulateur cardiaque.
• Ils ne doivent PAS placer le téléphone sans fil
directement sur le stimulateur cardiaque, tel que
dans une poche de chemise, lorsque celui-ci est en
marche.
L’étude effectuée par l’organisme WRS n’a pas
identifié de risque pour les détenteurs de simulateurs
cardiaques causés par les gens qui utilisent dispositifs
sans fil à proximité de ceux-ci.
