You cannot monitor twins (more than one baby) in the same cot at the same time, using one or two Sensor Pads- the Angelcare Movement Sensor Pad is that sensitive it will pick up the movements from each baby.
This would mean that if there was no movement detected for example from baby 1, the monitor will not alarm as the Sensor Pad(s) will still be detecting movement from baby 2 (and 3).
The Sensor Pad is designed to detect movement over the full surface of the mattress and not just baby lying above it, therefore, it cannot differentiate which baby the movement is coming from.
To explain the alarm to you – with one Sensor Pad in a cot with one baby, if no movement is detected on the surface of the mattress for 15 seconds you will hear the:

You can use a simple combination of Angelcare monitors for twins (more than one baby), however please note that it is not possible to connect any monitors together whatever the model, they will independently of each other. You would need 2 (3) separate monitors.
With the latest range of Angelcare Movement Monitors it is now possible to monitor twins using one monitor should you wish:
The following models are supplied with a Parent Unit, Camera Unit and Sensor Pad (AC Adaptors and other parts to power units included) to monitor baby 1:
To monitor baby 2 you would need to purchase the ACAM2 bundle (Angelcare ACAM2 Extra Movement Sensor Pad & Nursery Unit) - this has a Camera Unit, Sensor Pad (AC Adaptor and other parts to power unit included) from the spare parts tab on our Angelcare UK website.
Once received this would need to be connected to your existing monitor so that you can monitor the movement of baby`s 1 & 2 at the same time.
Remember though as above though when using a Sensor Pad is - One cot, One baby, One Sensor Pad.
All additional Camera Units are available to buy in our Spare Parts category in the Spare Parts tab on the Angelcare UK website.
