• This product is not intended to be used as a medical monitor
and its use should not replace adult supervision.
• It is very important to test the sound reception of the
Direct Link Privacy MonitorTM before first-time use and every
time you change the location of the transmitter. Please see
Sound Reception on page 8.
• To prevent entanglement:
- Never place the transmitter in a crib or playpen.
- Keep the transmitter, receiver and AC adaptor cord(s) out of
baby’s reach.
- Never use extension cords with the AC adaptors.
• Use only the AC adaptors provided with your Direct Link Privacy
MonitorTM. Use of any others may damage the transmitter
and/or receiver.
• Position AC adaptor cords so that they are not walked on or
pinched by items placed upon or against them.
• Do not use more than one transmitter and one receiver at the
same time in the same house.
• Never use the transmitter or receiver near water. For example,
do not use near a bathtub, sink, laundry tub, kitchen sink, or
wet basement, etc.
• Always use the transmitter, receiver and AC adaptors where
there is adequate ventilation. To prevent overheating, keep the
transmitter, receiver and AC adaptors away from heat sources
such as radiators, heat registers, direct sunlight, stoves,
amplifiers, or other appliances which produce heat.
• Always remember that you are using public airwaves when you
use the Direct Link Privacy MonitorTM. The coded scrambling
system blocks out listeners outside your house to protect your
privacy. To further enhance the privacy of your home, always
turn the transmitter off when not in use.
• The Direct Link Privacy MonitorTM is not designed for consumer

crib or play area. Make sure the antenna points upward for
best transmission.
• For best transmission, unwrap and fully extend the AC adaptor
cord. Insert the AC adaptor jack into the transmitter socket.
Insert the plug into a standard wall outlet.

SOUND RECEPTION
It is very important to test the sound reception of the
Direct Link Privacy Monitor™ before first-time use
and whenever you change the location of the transmitter.
• Test the Direct Link Privacy Monitor™ transmission and
reception. Have an adult speak into the transmitter in the room
you intend to use the transmitter. (If an adult is not available,
use a ticking clock or radio.) Place the receiver in the room in
which you intend to use the receiver. Adjust the receiver
location or volume dial until you hear sounds clearly through
the receiver.
• If you experience interference (buzzing, static, etc.) while using
one channel setting, switch both units to the other channel.
Selecting a channel is usually a one-time adjustment.
• If interference occurs on both channels or if further problems
develop, please refer to the Problems and Solutions Guide
beginning on page 10.
