I am so EXCITED to talk to you about the new monitor we received from Angel Care. I wanted to use the monitor a bit, a get a feel of it and make sure I fully understood how to use this one. If you have read our very first blog post about angel care, I talked about why we loved the AC510 version. Click right here to write about it >Angel care Monitor
This blog post is about the AC310-P angel care monitor. This monitor is ALMOST identical however, it has a couple of different features. The major different feature would be that this is not a touch screen directly on the screen itself, you actually touch the symbols on the side that navigates you. The screen is a bit smaller but the symbols on the side really help you look for what you need right there. This one also has a wall mount or the tabletop camera and it comes with an adjustable magnetic mount. We put ours on the wall and feel like we can get a full view of him in his crib. What I absolutely love is that it has a low profile camera with a room temperature display, it turns red when its too warm and blue for too cool. We keep Adin’s room about 22-23 celsius The night vision is also AMAZING on this. You can pretty much see everything. The one thing that I do see is a lot of people see how the camera itself shows a light of the temperature so it gives a bit of light in the room. However, I keep ours on because it gives him a bit of light so if he needs to find his soother or just wants to move around. If you don’t want this, just take black hockey tape and cover it and it will completely black it out. It also does have a two-way talk and to be honest I haven’t ever used it at night because I don’t talk to Adin through it. He doesn’t ever wake up so I dont have to communicate with him. However, when my husband is taking him out of the crib after his nap, and they are still in the room, I will communicate to him through the monitor and he has mentioned how well he can hear me. So, if you are looking to play soothing sounds or sing to your baby through this monitor. It would be a good choice.
If you read my first post about the AC510 I talked about in the blog post how we couldn’t find a good monitor that would go far in range. This camera goes far!!! Our house is about 2000 square feet (with basement) we can go to the garage and across the street and we will not lose signal at all! WHICH I LOVE! Because I simply move from room to room, cleaning or doing something while Adin is sleeping and I want to make sure I can see/hear him at all times. I also loved how this one came with the under the mattress breathing sensor pad, it tracks subtle movements. It will sound if no breathing movement is detected after 20 seconds. I will love this when Adin becomes a toddler, and he comes out of the crib and the monitor doesn’t pick up the very quiet sounds because he will probably master it…BUT the sensor pad will 🙂 So I am so excited for that.
A lot of you asked me if you could watch it on your phone. In all honestly, I looked for one without. I wanted to keep him on something separate from my phone. As when he goes to bed I am constantly on my phone and I don’t want to keep going back and forth to it. I really don’t know if they will introduce the phone part but I simply am loving the way it is right now. I also got asked what am I doing with both monitors. I kept them both. I put the AC310-P in his room and then I used AC510 (older) in his playroom. I use both monitors and just watch him wherever he is.
To finish this off, we simply love our new monitor. Its loud, clear and easy to see Adin, if its during the day or at night. If you have any questions, or comments please send them to me.
