Digital Baby Monitor EHB256 Q&A
You can turn the baby monitor on by switch on the volume dial on the parent unit. This controls volume and on/off in one.
Powering ON will indicate as a red light and play music for 3 seconds.
If the LCD display signal is received an image will show in the display, otherwise a white screen will appear. There are 32 channels and it will automatically search for a signal. Only one camera can pair at a time to the LCD monitor.
There are 3 different ways to set-up the camera. You can place it on a surface such as a table or dresser, the bottom has a foot mat to securely sit on a surface. You can clip it using the clip that clicks into the bottom of the camera. Lastly, there is a hole on the bottom of the camera that allows you to mount it to a wall. The camera comes with an A/C adapter. Plug it in and pair for use.
The infrared LED will auto switch to Night vision when the baby monitor is used in the dark. The image will show in Black & White instead of color.
VOX stands for Voice Operated eXchange, it is a soft switch that operates when sound over a certain threshold is detected. The VOX switch button is located on the side of the LCD display unit. Once turned on, it will activate the camera from its stand-by state if a voice or sound is sensed by the camera unit.
There are two units included. The Parent unit, which is the led display. This comes with 3 rechargeable AAA's. The batteries are pre-installed. A fully charged parent unit will last 8 hours off the charger. It is best to recharge the batteries at least once every three months to extend the life of the batteries.
The baby unit is the camera portion. There are no batteries needed. An A/C adapter is used to plug in and the camera can be paired with the parent LCD display.
The baby monitor can reach up to 656 ft (200 m) long range in an open area. if the parent unit is too far away from the baby unit, an Out of Range Alert will activate.
The baby monitor has motion and voice sensor activation. If noises are sensed or motion in range of the camera, it will activate to live feed to the LCD display. The units also have 2-way communication, so you can talk and hear your baby and vise-versa.
This is a controversial query. The digital baby monitor operates on a 2.4GHz frequency. Most WiFi compatible devices operate at 5.8 GHz or more. There are only 3 major channels that have the ability to overlap.Some suggest using a double router to avoid such possibilities of interference.
The popularity of the 2.4 GHz can be found in many wireless devices as well, such as cordless phones. This frequency range was relatively unused a few years ago, it offered a high level of interference- free operation for the wireless devices that used it. Therefore, there is potential for interference such as causing static with the baby monitor when a cordless phone rings. The WiFi itself may cause the baby monitor to temporarily disable, but the WiFi should not be affected.
