Precautions for users of implanted cardiac
pacemakers
Cardiac pacemakers (applies only to digital
cordless devices):
Wireless Technology Research, LLC (WTR),
an independent research entity, led a
multidisciplinary 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:
Install the battery
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.

Replace the battery
1 set for VM311;
2 sets for VM311-2
To replace the battery, pull the battery out of
the battery compartment and unplug the battery
connector from the socket, then follow the steps
above to install the battery.
• The operating time for using the
rechargeable battery is short. If you want
to monitor your baby for a long time, we
recommend you connect the parent unit
to AC power.
You can power up the parent unit by connecting
it to AC power or to the rechargeable battery
provided. Even if the parent unit is connected
to AC power, we recommend you also
install the battery. This guarantees continual
operation in case of a power outage.
Install the battery as shown below.
1. Slide and lift to open the battery compartment
cover.
• If the parent unit will not be used for a long
time, disconnect and remove the battery to
prevent possible leakage.
Connect and charge the
battery
• Use only the battery supplied with this
product.
• Use only the parent unit power adapter or
the baby unit power adapter supplied with
this product.
2. Plug the battery connector securely into
the socket.
• The parent unit power adapter and
baby unit power adapter are intended
to be correctly oriented in a vertical or
floor mount position. The prongs are not
designed to hold the plug in place if it is
plugged into a ceiling, under-the-table or
cabinet outlet.
