Angelcare AC401 Baby Monitor Review Conclusion
The Angelcare AC401 Movement and Sound Monitor is great for helping to give parents peace of mind when they have a baby who sleeps in their own room. The ultra-sensitive mattress sensor pad helps relieve worry about SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) and with this comes the opportunity to get some much needed rest themselves. It is also good for use during the day when there are other things that need to be done. Overall, a very well-designed baby monitor.
