FAQs : Monitors
- What is DECT technology?
- The term DECT is a shortened version or acronym for “Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications”. DECT technology provides less interference.
- I’ve exchanged my monitor several times at the store, but I continue to have interference; even after trying all the troubleshooting tips. What can I do?
- If your monitor has been replaced to eliminate any possibility of a defect, but you still encounter interference problems, then your monitor would be considered non-compatible with your surroundings.
There are several things that work on the same frequency as your monitor. You may have to eliminate them in order to allow your monitor to work. Also, items outside of your home - such as what your neighbor may have - that work on a radio wave frequency can interfere with the performance of your unit.
- How often should I recharge the rechargeable batteries for my monitor?
- It is best to recharge the batteries once the batteries are depleted fully. The batteries do have a memory, so if they are continuously recharged at half use of life, they will eventually develop a memory that gives the impression that it is at its maximum and that will cause you to charge more frequently or replace the battery itself more frequently.
- Can I use two separate monitors in my home?
- Safety 1st does not recommend the use of more than one monitor in the same home due to interference issues. That same interference can occur when using one receiver with two transmitters or one transmitter with two receivers. (Unless originally designed with that feature). You would have to unplug one to use the other in all above situations.

- Should I use batteries if possible or the AC adapter?
- You should use household electricity whenever possible to conserve the battery so you will have power when you don''t have easy access to AC outlets.
- What can I do if my monitor is not working properly?
- If your monitor is not working properly, please use the following suggestions:
• Move the receiver and/or transmitter to different areas in your room.
• If you have any WiFi devices such as cordless phones or other monitors, unplug them from the electrical outlet.
• Try unplugging other electronic items that are near either the transmitter or receiver.
• Remember that anything that works on a public airwave can be a potential interference.
Airwaves can shift so items that may not have caused a problem before may suddenly become a problem. Try unplugging and leaving these electronic items unplugged while you adjust your monitor to get the signal back.
- Why can I hear my neighbors and can they hear me?
- Remember that you are using public airways when you use your Safety 1st Monitor. Sound and video may be broadcast to other receiving devices. Conversations, even from rooms near the camera may be broadcast as well. To protect your privacy always turn off the camera when not in use.
