USERS MANUAL

DBX-89

1 ECO MODE

This Alecto DBX-89 babyphone is equipped with an unique

ECO mode. Already in normal operation mode, the babyunit stops transmission when the baby is not crying. In

Full Eco mode it even suppresses the controlling signals between the baby-unit and the parent unit, so no transmitting at all.

Next to the Full eco mode, you can set the output power.

In case you are at home with your baby not far away, you can set the babyphone in half range mode, with low transmitting power and reduced power consumption. In case the baby is not close to you, you may switch to full range.

Attention: once the baby produces noise, the baby-unit is activated and contacts the parent unit. This causes a small delay which means that short sounds from the baby may not be heard by you. In case you really want to hear all sounds from the baby room, you must set the sensitivity to maximum; with this setting the baby-unit is constantly active.
