The AC601 is not a “Continuous Sound” Monitor it is a ‘Sound Activated’ Monitor. This means that the sound transmission will activate and 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 (not lullaby’s as the decibels do not change as this is soothing music) is being played if the decibels don’t change for 10 seconds the sound will cut off to save power.
The sound lights on the front of the Parent Unit will rise and fall to indicate sound is being detected and these sounds will be heard through the speaker on the Parent Unit.
The sensitivity of the microphone is adjustable and has 3 levels. The highest level (level 3) is the most sensitive, i.e. it will activate the sound transmission when the lowest level of sound is detected.
Can you please check the volume on your Parent Unit is turned up.
Whether you are monitoring Sound & Movement with the TIC on/off OR just Sound Only in order for your baby`s sounds to be heard through the Parent Unit you MUST:
• Switch the parent Unit & Nursery Unit ON
• Ensure that the channel (A, B or C) on left wing of the Nursery Unit needs is set to the same channel selection (A, B or C) as the button on the left side of the Parent Unit
• Please Note: If the Parent Unit and Nursery Unit are set to different channels the sound lights on the Parent Unit will not rise and your baby`s sounds will be NOT be transmitted through the speaker on the Parent Unit.
