Q. Can it be used in cribs, bassinets, travel cot?
A. Yes, as long as the base is rigid and a suitable mattress is used and you must ensure that excess cords are secured under the mattress out of reach of baby or other infants. Modifications may be required to the bassinet for sensor pad wiring access and controller unit placement. For further advice please consult an Oricom Representative.

Q. Lights on Control unit do not illuminate when turned ON?
A. Batteries are not inserted incorrectly or may be flat. Check batteries are inserted in the Control unit observing the correct polarity. Control unit requires 4 x AA 1.5V Alkaline batteries (not supplied).
Q. Low battery voltage warning (red light) on the Control Unit is flashing?
A. Batteries are low, replace all 4 batteries.
Q. Alarm goes off after a few hours
A. The mattress is not touching the sensor pads.
The mattress is raised (there is an object near the sensor pads).
Two sensor pads are connected but the baby is not yet crawling.
Only one sensor pad is connected and the baby has crawled off the sensor pad.
The mattress does not enable adequate transfer of baby movement – The compositions of some cot mattresses may not conduct vibrations associated with babies breathing movement and may not be suitable with Babaysense2.
Do not use Babysense2 with a memory foam mattress.
Make sure that the mattress and sensor pads are touching.
Make sure that there are no objects next to the sensor pads.
Connect sensor pads as per the user manual. If baby is not yet able to crawl, use only one sensor pad – and make sure sensor is placed underneath baby’s location in bed to ensure greater relative sensitivity.
Place a sheet of plywood (not supplied) under the sensor pad so that the sensor pad and the mattress will be tightly pressed together.
Q. Delayed alarms while taking the baby out of the bed
A. Performance test is not correct.
Do not conduct performance test by taking the baby out of bed and waiting for the alarm to go off. Kindly conduct performance test according to the performance test instruction in user guide.
The alarm does not go off within 20 seconds when performing the correct performance test
Environmental Influences detected by the sensor pads, such as wind, fan, air-conditioner, toy mobile vibrations.
Perform a test which will detect the source of the movement that the device detects, eg; sources of wind such as air conditioner, an open window or a fan, movements of baby mobile (which can vibrate even if it’s not turned on) walking around the bed area or an intercom placed near the bed with intense transmission levels. Eliminate sources of wind, remove the mobile etc. After neutralizing all environmental interruptions, perform the test again.
Q: Can I use the Babysense2 on my 13-month-old infant?
A: Babysense2 is intended for healthy newborn infants from birth and up to 1 year of age.
Babysense is set to recognize a defined breathing movement rate of infants within this age group (the alarm sounds if breathing stops for 20 seconds or if the breathing rate slows to below 10 breaths per minute).
Q. Can I use Babysense2 if my infant needs constant medical supervision?
A. No. You should contact your GP or medical specialist and seek their advice on what alternative suitable methods of monitoring your infant are available.
Q. Why is it recommended that only one pad be used in a bassinette?
A: The Babysense2 detects the movement produced by a baby’s breathing. A newborn, being smaller, may not have as much movement than a 3 or 4-month-old baby, and when two sensor pads are connected it does reduce the sensitivity of the pads, a little, no problem for an older baby but maybe a little more difficult to detect the movement for a new born baby. This is why it is always best to follow the instructions in the user guide including performing a regular (daily) test of the monitor.
Babysense2 is intended for use as an Infant Apnoea Alarm.
ALWAYS READ THE LABEL AND USER GUIDE, USE ONLY AS DIRECTED.
