Product information

The Angelcare Movement and Sound monitor is exclusive to John Lewis and has been designed to provide complete peace of mind. The 2-in-1 monitor detects your baby’s sound and movement, even the slightest breathing movement. If your baby is still for 20 seconds, you'll be alerted.

Complete with variable sensitivity settings and a unique combination of 8 channels and 2 frequencies, the SensorPad emits crystal clear transmission within a 250m range. Both units are mains or battery operated and the rechargeable parent unit is portable for added convenience. Simply clip the small portable parent unit to your belt and monitor your baby on-the-go.

Features of the Angelcare Movement and Sound Monitor AC401:

  • Under-the-mattress SensorPad: The SensorPad monitors all your baby’s movements, even the slightest breathing movements. An alarm will sound if no movement has been detected for 20 seconds. Features variable sensitivity settings. Works on all mattresses except memory foam mattresses.
  • Portable rechargeable Parent Unit: Clip the small portable Parent Unit to your belt and monitor your baby on the go. Battery unit lasts for up to 8 hours, when fully charged.
  • Crystal clear transmission: Enjoy crystal clear sound transmission and security with the unique combination of 8 channels and 2 frequencies.
  • Out of range indicator: With a 250m range, you can go further without losing touch. Alarm sounds if connectivity is broken.
  • Volume control and vibration alert: Adjust the sound levels to suit you and monitor your baby even with the sound off.
  • Temperature display and control: Monitors and shows the temperature in baby’s room with the temperature indicator on the Parent Unit. Alarm sounds if the temperature is too high or low.
  • Full colour digital display: The colour LCD screen on the Parent Unit clearly displays a number of monitoring features, so even if the sound is off you’ll know what’s going on.
  • Nightlight: The halo on the Nursery Unit acts as a soothing nightlight and allows you to check your baby with minimal disruption.
  • Hold and mute: If, for example, you need to feed or change your baby the sound and movement alarm can be temporarily deactivated.
  • Continuous sound monitoring: The Angelcare system can be set to continuous or voice-activated sound monitoring. Microphone sensitivity is adjustable so you can hear all sounds in baby’s room or just when baby cries.

Please follow the instruction manual when you install this monitor. Place the nursery unit at least 3 feet away from the cot and make sure the sensor pad cord is well out of baby's reach by wrapping it around the leg of the cot and securing it with cable ties. A free cord cover kit is available direct from Angelcare; to register please visit, or call 0845 009 1789.

Q & As

Product as expected Bought this product based on the reviews and awards for my newborn. He has not yet slept in his cot to use it but it was easy to set up and install. Hopefully it'll prove to be as good as all the reviews. 08 April 2014
customer service the aftercare is brilliant I dropped monitor and cracked face and I got replacement cover posted and delivered in two days 03 February 2014
Great baby monitor I bought this monitor for my first baby and have been delighted with it. It provides so much peace of mind, and definitely works (as the alarm has gone off whenever I have lifted my baby out of his crib and forgotten to switch it off). The portable monitor allows you to keep an ear on your baby all around the house. I'd recommend it to anyone. 20 November 2013
Excellent product My baby is now 5 months old. I have used this system since day 1. I found it easy to set up, easy to install. I have never had any false alarms and the system works perfectly every time. For the first time this week the alarm went off in the middle of the night. I ran in to check my little boy to find he had rolled over and had his arms and legs outside the cot. He was fine but I think I need to reposition my mat. I was grateful the alarm had gone off. Many of my friends told me not to buy a monitor with a mat. I personally love it. I love the fact I can put him n his tummy and not worry. I love the fact I can sleep with the knowledge I would be alerted in an emergency. 28 August 2013
Life saver The angel care monitor can be slightly daunting at set up and this is not helped by an overly complicated manual. However, once it is set up correctly the unit really is a life saver and offer peace of mind. This unit alerted me when my baby stopped breathing or had breathing difficulties (she was face down on a small teddy that we'd forgotten to remove) and I believe it prevented an accident. Would not be without it. However I have only given it 4 stars as I've also had a couple of false alerts now that my baby is mobile in her cot. 01 August 2013
Very poor parent unit We purchased this product online after a recommendation from a friend only to be very disappointed. The parent unit did not sit in it's base properly and therefore I assume did not charge properly. The manufacturer suggests charging for 15 hours prior to first use. After 36 hours of trying to charge the parent unit, it would switch on only to immediately switch itself off. Not a very well designed product. We have since returned the product to JL. 21 March 2013
Badly designed and overly complicated We bought this monitor becasue it had a great feature list and looked good value. However we found the device to be overly complicated and never felt confident in its operation as a monitor. Never sure if its actually working due to the plethora of oprions & menu settings. The screen is poor unless viewed directly on. The manual is poor and confusing making me unsure that I had set it up correctly. In use we heard the baby cry before the monitor went off so. The key function of these devices is to give you confidence which sadly this did not give us. We will be retuning the device and getting a much simpler one. Oh, I'm an I.T. developer so if I find it complicated then it must be bad! 04 February 2013
Reassuringly Good Purchased for the odd occasions that our 3 month old grandchild stays overnight and when we are babysitting him at our house during the day, the Angelcare monitor alerted us to his waking/quiet crying from a distant room upstairs without problem. The monitor also alerted, reassuringly, when baby was removed from the cot but we forgot to turn the movement sensor off. We have not used it often, so cannot comment on longevity of product or battery life, but would certainly recommend for peace of mind. 14 January 2013
