Angelcare AC401 Movement

Angelcare’s Movement & Sound Baby Monitor has good basic functionality. The sound and movement sensors are responsive, with good volume output and decent range. The monitor has a temperature gauge and night light but the battery life is poor and not only is the product difficult to set up but it’s not very intuitive. It is, however, sensitive to baby’s sounds and movements, and the ‘distress’ alarm is nice and loud; it’s nothing revolutionary but certainly worth a recommendation.
