The sensitivity level on all Angelcare Movement Monitors is preset when you use them for the first time - yours is Level 3. This is suitable for most standard cots, cots beds and should only be adjusted if required.
To ensure that the sensitivity level of the monitors is correct for your baby`s mattress carry out the following Four Corner Test for your AC300 model:
NOTE: Your baby must NOT be in the cot during this test:
Check that the sensitivity on the back of the Nursery Unit is at level 3 (factory setting), if not move dial until at number 3
Check that the Sensor Pad is in the middle of the cot underneath the mattress.
Ensure that the Sensor Pad cord is fed through the base of the cot using the cord cover kit to secure the cord
All cords must be kept out of reach of your baby at all times
The Nursery Unit must be at least 3ft away from the cot
Check that the Sensor Pad jack is plugged securely into the Nursery Unit
Switch the Nursery Unit ON
*Place your hand in all four corners of the mattress and if the green light flashes on the Nursery Unit registering your hand then the sensitivity is correct
Remove your hand from the mattress and step away from the cot. The Sensor Pad is sensitive enough to detect your movement if you are touching the cot
**Due to the lack of movement, after 15 seconds a single beep (The Rouse Alarm) will be emitted from the Nursery Unit
After a further 5 seconds a series of continuous beeps (The Main Alarm) will sound from the Nursery Unit
Place your hand on the mattress and after a few seconds the alarm will cease as the Sensor Pad will have detected your movement.
*If the green light does not flash when you touch any of the corners please adjust the sensitivity by turning it up another 1/2 a notch and repeat the Four Corner Test again.
**If however the monitor does not alarm when you step away from the cot reduce the sensitivity down 1 level and repeat the Four Corner Test, keep adjusting this until the alarm sounds ensuring that the movements is still detected in all four corners.
