No problem, your AC417 monitor has the sound options of:
Sound Activated (VOX ON)
This means that it will transmit sounds only when it detects them. To save power, after 10 seconds, the sound transmission will stop if no sound is detected. Once sound is detected transmission will automatically activate.
To test if sound is being detected, when music/a radio is being played (not lullaby’s as the decibels do not change as this is soothing music) if the decibels don’t change for 10 seconds the sound will automatically cut off to save power.
Continuous Sound (VOX OFF)
This means that sound monitoring is continually ON, picking up any sounds in the room including static/white noise.
It may be that the setting has accidentally been changed to Sound Activated.
To activate or deactivate either function or check that chosen function is working see the following:
• Press the Parent Unit screen to show the MENU icons
• Press the settings icon and then press the camera icon in settings:
To activate Sound Activated the toggle must be blue
To activate Continuous Sound the toggle must be grey
• Press the SAVE icon at the bottom of the screen to save your preferred setting
