Monitors 101: Helpful Tips from Graco

1. Monitor Noise: Why do you hear static?
The two main causes for static are a due to weak signals and/or interference.

  •  Static – The further the parent unit is from the nursery unit, the greater the chances for static.
  • Interference – there are many things that disrupt your monitor’s reception. Other channels, background noise, other electronics, low batteries, construction/Furniture/Plants, the sun all can affect the parent unit.

2. Privacy: Not all monitors are private
There are two types of monitors – analog and digital.

  • Analog – simple, continuous sound transmission at a fixed frequency. Note, some video monitors are analog, so both the audio and video signals will not NOT be secure.
  • Digital – clear, secure connection that offers privacy and virtually eliminates static and interference.

3. Batteries: Understanding rechargeable vs. non-rechargeable
There are two types of batteries – rechargeable and non-rechargeable.

  • Rechargeable Batteries – First use: charge the rechargeable batteries for at least 16 hours before first use. Parent units should be able to run 8-10 hours before needing a recharge.
  • Non-Rechargeable Batteries- Do NOT mix old and new batteries. Check or replace backup batteries on nursery units periodically (just like you should check the batteries on your smoke alarms regularly)
