Frequently asked questions

Comprehensive information on the devices can be found in the detailed instructions for use, here we would like to give a separate answer to the most frequently asked questions.

Is this electrical device dangerous in the bed of the child?

The Baby Control respiratory monitor is completely independent of the 230V network as it only operates from dwarf voltage, so it cannot cause electric shock under any circumstances! It does not produce or emit electrical or other radiation, so it is completely safe to operate.

What do the numeric values on the display mean?

They indicate the intensity of movement for informational purposes. If the displayed value is above the set sensitivity threshold level – factory value “3”, then the detection is considered appropriate.

What can I use the third sensor for?

Baby Control’s third sensor pad ensures comfortable use if you don’t just want to use the device in your crib. In this case, you do not need to remove the sensor pads from the crib, simply place the third pad in the baby’s temporary place and only transfer the central unit there. Of course, if the size of the baby bed requires the use of three sheets, then with the supplied Y-hub, all three pads can be connected to the device at the same time. So when the baby changes places in his sleep, there will be sensor pads almost everywhere underneath. The possibility of false alarm can thus be almost completely excluded.

Should the white plastic cover of the sensor sheet be removed?

No, it’s strictly forbidden! The cover is washable; disinfect able plastic, which is part of the sensor pad. Removing and cutting it will result in a loss of warranty!

Can sensor sheets be used for older devices?

BC-101 and BC-2101 sensor pads can be used for the following devices: BC-200, BC-210, BC-230, BC-2200, BC-2210, BC-2230.

Are there any upper and lower weight limits for your application?

There’s a lower weight limit. In order to be reliable in the operation of the device and not to cause unnecessary alarms with false alarms, the minimum weight limit is 2 kg. For a baby weighing less than this, we cannot guarantee perfect operation! Less than 2.5 kg, place the sensor plate on the mattress, under the blanket, lengthwise under the baby!
According to experts, the first 12 months are considered to be at risk, regardless of weight, at which time we strongly recommend using the device. The upper weight limit is 20 kg.

What should I do if the device alerts me, but there is nothing wrong with the baby?

Pinching before an alarm is just a warning, not an alarm. If the device starts to sound the alarm, there are several reasons:
It happens that the new-born should be laid on the side. In such a case, chest movements are directed only slightly towards the mattress and sensor pads, therefore, false alarms can be given by the device. A solution to this situation is to use only one sensor pad under the baby, placed in the same direction as the baby under the mattress (or in the case of a baby weighing less on the mattress). The other sensor pads must be pulled out of the connector. Later, when the baby is turning over from the side, the rest of the pads can be inserted.
The baby may also sleep soundly and breathe less frequently. If the time between two breaths is more than 12 seconds, a warning sound is issued before the alarm is raised. This is usually enough for the baby to wake up from a very deep sleep and the alarm stops. If the baby does not respond to the three beeps, the device will start to alert you, which will wake up most of the children.
If the baby does not respond to the three beeps, the device will start to alert you, which will wake up most of the children. In this case, if the parent goes there and sees that the device is alerting, but the baby is ok, we can look back at the events of the 1-9 minutes before the alarm using the event memory, so that you can check the baby’s previous breathing.

What kind of mattress can I use?

In addition to using baby control respiratory monitor, as far as we know, you can use any type of mattress and crib, regardless of size or material.


My device has gone wrong, what should I do?

In this case, contact the distributor immediately. The warranty device will be replaced or repaired immediately.

If your device is not under warranty please notify our service.


How does the device detect the baby's breathing?

Baby Control is a very sensitive motion detection device. It is also able to detect the baby’s tiny breathing movements when placed under the mattress while the baby is asleep. The device monitors the baby’s movements even when he is awake.

Should the baby be placed directly on the sensor pad?

The sensor pads must be placed between the reclining surface of the crib and the mattress. The extreme sensitivity of the device allows you to detect small vibrations associated with breathing through a mattress several centimetres thick. An exception when it comes to babies weighing less than 2.5 kg: in this case, a piece of sensor pad should be placed on top of the mattress, under the blanket.

Does the multi-sheet device work with only one sensor pad?

Of course, regardless of the Baby Control device type, it can be used even with a single sensor pad.

Is it necessary to distinguish between the top or bottom of the sensor pad?

It can be used on any side of it.

Can the device be used with rechargeable batteries?

The Baby Control respiratory monitor cannot be used with rechargeable AA batteries or accumulator! It can only be operated with a durable, alkaline AA battery, only this guarantees long-term, high-quality and safe operation.

Why doesn't the device alert me when I take the baby out of the crib?

There are two reasons for this. One is that your apartment has micro vibrations or air currents that the device perceives as moving due to its high sensitivity. This can be caused, for example, by stronger drafts, fans, or a busy main road in front of your house. If the source of the disturbance cannot be eliminated, check the sensitivity setting.
The value shown on the display informs you well about the strength of distracting movements. Notice the maximum values of distracting movements on the display. Set the sensory threshold level of the device higher. Notice the maximum values of distracting movements on the display. Set the sensory threshold level of the device higher.
If you are not alarmed in this position, you should consult the specified service provider to resolve the problem as soon as possible. Another possible cause can occur mainly in coconut mattresses. It is about the fact that due to the fibre structure of the mattress, it can perform micro-movements for up to a minute – regardless of the fact that the baby has already been removed from the crib. This is not a device failure!

Does it matter which part of the crib or mattress the baby is in?

The device is able to monitor the entire area of the crib and also has a high degree of lateral sensitivity, so in theory it does not matter. However, it may happen that the baby can occupy a situation, for example, at the very edge of the mattress or in the corner of the crib, that the device will sound an alarm because it does not detect breathing movement.

After switching on, the device constantly alerts you and does not receive any signs of sensor panels – what is it?

For safety reasons, this indicates that the voltage of the batteries has fallen below the voltage level required for reliable operation. You will not be able to use the device until the batteries are replaced. It is recommended to always keep two new durable (alkaline) pencil batteries in reserve at home! Always replace the two batteries at the same time.
