You have the option to have the screen save function OFF (video display is always ON) or, set to display for 30 seconds, 1 min, 2 mins or 3 mins before going into screen save mode.
See the following for how to change to your preferred setting:
Tap the MENU button on screen
Press the down arrow once & press the OK button to enter the settings menuPress the down arrow twice & press the OK button to enter the Screen Save screen (indicated by Zzz)
To activate/deactivate screen save press OK:
Toggle is BLUE = screen save activated
Press the down arrow once to set the screen save time (30 seconds, 1 minute, 2 minutes, 3 minutes)
Toggle is GREY = screen save is deactivated
Press down arrow once so the save icon turns blue
If you do not press the OK button to save any settings the monitor will revert to the previous and you would need to begin again
Please Note: when the screen save option is deactivated the re-chargeable battery power can be reduced by the constant transmission between the Parent Unit and Camera Unit.
The Parent Unit and Camera Unit are constantly transmitting to each other when they are switched ON as the units are monitoring temperature, sound, movement etc.
In addition to this when the microphone in the Camera Unit detects any noise, whether it`s your baby or background noise (even white noise) this is also transmitted from the Camera Unit to the Parent Unit.
This can reduce the re-chargeable battery power in the Parent Unit. Rechargeable battery life can also vary per home/room that they are being used in. Therefore when used in your friends/neighbours homes rechargeable battery power will vary due to different room/environments.
We do recommend that in order to ensure that the Parent Unit remains ON & charged that you keep the Parent Unit connected to mains power.
