10 Best Angelcare Baby Monitors

When you become parents to a newborn baby you are on duty 24/7. Babies need frequent changing, feeding, and stimulation. But sometimes you have to settle your baby down to fix dinner, do the washing up, put some laundry on, or a myriad of other things. But you can’t afford to miss anything that is happening with your baby.

In the worst case scenario, your baby could put themselves in danger while you’re busy in another room and totally unaware of what is going on.

This is why baby monitors are so important. One of our favourite brands of baby monitors is Angelcare, (not least because they’re so reasonably priced) so in this article we’re going to review 10 different Angelcare baby monitors for your perusal. Our reviews are unbiased and contain both pros and cons.

We totally understand that you want to ensure you get the right baby monitor for your needs, which is why we’ve also put together a handy buying guide at the end too.

And without further ado, here's what you need to know on the 10 best Angelcare baby monitors!

OUR TOP PICK

Angelcare Ac327 3-in-1 Baby Movement Monitor with Video, White

This is our favourite Angelcare baby monitor system because it’s made up of 3 great component parts…

There’s a small video camera that you can either mount to a wall or place on a tabletop. And it works without WiFi to give you a live video feed on what your baby is getting up to.

The video is displayed in full colour on a large 4.3-inch screen.

The camera will let you zoom in or pan out as you please via the touch screen display. And you can even get live video when the room is pitch black, thanks to its night vision.

If the baby wakes up but is still tired, there’s a two-way audio feed, so you can reassure them and sing them softly back to sleep.

And that’s not all. The set also features a movement monitor which you slide under the baby’s mattress, undetected by the baby.

While babies may not be able to walk and such, they still move around a lot, often even as they sleep. It is lack of movement rather than movement that can be a cause for concern.

The baby movement monitor will pick up the baby’s every movement and only alarm you when there has been no movement after 20 seconds.

It passed all our tests.

Pros

  • Live video feed on large screen
  • Movement monitor is comfortable
  • Camera features night vision
  • You can zoom in or pan out
  • There’s a two-way audio feed

Cons

  • Buying all three units can be expensive if you don’t manage to catch a deal

EDITORS CHOICE

Angelcare Ac527 3-in-1 Baby Movement Monitor with Video White

As you may have gathered from the accompanying photo, the Angelcare Ac527 has quite a lot in common with the Ac327 system we showed you earlier…

There’s a video camera that will stream live feed of your baby to a large full colour screen, so you can still keep an eye on your baby even when you’re in another room.

This camera comes complete with infrared night vision, so you can even see what they’re getting up to when it’s pitch black.

This video does not require WiFi to run, so you don’t have to worry about ever losing the signal. It also has two-way audio, so you can soothe them to sleep wherever you are in the home.

It also comes with a movement monitor that you place in a central point under their mattress, that will give off a beep after the baby has stopped moving for over 20 seconds, so you know when they are sound asleep.

The key difference between the AC527 and the AC327 is the size of the video touch screen. While the AC327 is 4.3 inches wide, the AC527 is larger at 5 inches wide, and this is great whether you want to zoom in or pan out.

Because of the larger screen size, this system does cost a little more money than the AC327, which is the only reason we didn’t make this our number one pick.

It passed all our tests.

Pros

  • Live video feed on large 5” screen
  • Movement monitor is comfortable
  • Camera features night vision
  • You can zoom in or pan out
  • There’s a two-way audio feed

Cons

  • Most expensive system on our shortlist

BEST VALUE

Angelcare Ac127 Baby Movement Monitor with Sound

If you don’t feel the need to shell out for a video monitor system, this is your next best option…

The AC127 features a number of items that help keep you aware of your baby’s needs from any room in the house. Most notably, a movement monitor and two-way audio.

That way, you can hear your baby crying for you, even at the opposite side of the house, and you can respond in the first instance by talking to them, which will reassure them that you’re close by.

If you’re lucky, this will be enough to soothe them back off to sleep.

And that’s not all. This set also features a movement monitor, which you slide underneath the mattress.

Despite the small size of the movement monitor, you can rest assured that it will pick up all of your baby’s movement. If there’s no movement after 20 seconds, an alarm will sound.

There’s also a temperature monitor included, too, consisting of a nursery unit and a parent unit.

The nursery unit has a colour coded system to let you know if the nursery is too hot, too cold or just right. And the precise temperature is displayed on the parent unit, through which you can also send the two-way audio.

It passed all our tests.

Pros

  • Cheaper than the video monitor systems
  • There’s two-way audio to soothe the baby
  • You’re alerted as soon as there’s an issue
  • Movement and temperature monitoring

Cons

  • No live video feed

Angelcare Ac320 Baby Video Monitor

As we discuss in our buying guide later, more often than not there’s no real need for a movement monitor underneath the mattress.

And the AC320 system offers complete video monitoring without the extra expense of a movement monitor.

There’s a small video camera that you can either mount to a wall or place on a tabletop. And it works without WiFi to give you a live video feed on what your baby is getting up to.

The video is displayed in full colour on a large 4.3-inch screen. The camera will let you zoom in or pan out as you please via the touch screen display. And you can even get live video when the room is pitch black, thanks to its infrared night vision.

The parent unit is very intuitive and easy to use. There are only 6 buttons to be concerned about.

In addition to the live video, you also get live audio, so wherever you are in the home you will be able to hear your baby.

Better yet, you don’t have to move anywhere for the baby to hear that you’re nearby. You simply press the microphone button, and you can talk back to your baby where you’re sitting.

It passed all our tests.

Pros

  • Live video feed on large screen
  • No needless movement monitor
  • Camera features night vision
  • You can zoom in or pan out
  • There’s a two-way audio feed

Cons

  • Still relatively expensive despite not including the movement monitor

Angelcare AC1300 Baby Movement Monitor

Now, this is a great baby monitoring kit too. It has a lot in common with some of the other sets we’ve gone through, but it does have its own set of features too.

So, this kit includes a video camera for a live action video feed with infrared night vision. The video is displayed in full colour on a screen that’s 3.5 inches wide. You can zoom in and pan out to your heart’s content.

There’s also two-way audio, so you can respond to your baby’s cries wherever you happen to be in the house. And sometimes just hearing your voice is all they really need.

It also comes with a movement monitor that goes underneath your baby’s mattress and will give a little beep whenever there’s no movement for 20 seconds, so you know when your baby is completely settled.

You’re also alerted as soon as the batteries need to be recharged, which is super handy.

It passed all our tests.

Pros

  • Live video feed on large screen
  • Movement monitor is comfortable
  • Camera features night vision
  • You can zoom in or pan out
  • There’s a two-way audio feed

Cons

  • Many customers found that battery life is pretty poor with this model

Angelcare Extra Movement Sensor Pad and Nursery Unit

Looking after just one baby is usually straightforward enough. But what if there were two babies to look after? Maybe you’ve had twins or had two babies in quick succession.

If this is you, you’ll be pleased to hear that you can buy an extra movement monitor and camera for the second baby, that will provide feedback to the same Parent unit as the first baby. A live video of each child will come up on a split screen.

So, this system would feature two movement sensors, two cameras, but just one full colour screen to keep an eye on both babies at the same time.

However, in order for this to work as intended, you will also have to purchase one of the kits that includes a parent unit with a video screen, such as the AC327, AC527, AC320, AC1300.

It passed all our tests.

Pros

  • Live video of 2 babies not just one
  • Movement detention
  • Two-way audio feed
  • Infrared night vision

Cons

  • Requires an additional purchase

Angel Care Angelcare Ac110 Baby Sound Monitor

If you don’t feel the need for a video monitor or movement monitor, you might decide you’ll be happy with a sound monitor alone such as this, the AC110.

It features two-way audio, so you can hear your baby cry wherever you happen to be in the house. And if they do start to cry, you don’t have to leave your seat to comfort and reassure them.

Simply hearing your voice over the monitor will let them know that you are there.

The system is made up of a Parent unit and a Nursery unit.

The Nursery unit also tracks the room’s temperature for you and features a colour coded system to let you know whether the temperature is too hot, too cold or just right. And the precise temperature is displayed on the parent unit.

It passed all our tests.

Pros

  • Two-way audio

Best Angelcare Baby Monitors Buying Guide

Which Combination Of Sensors & Gadgets To Invest In

If you’ve already decided to invest in an Angelcare monitoring system for your baby, we commend you on your decision. But the next big decision is what combinations of Angelcare gadgets to invest in.

10 Best Angelcare Baby Monitors

Video Monitor

We would argue that video monitors are not as expensive as they once were, and are worth considering.

Sound Monitor

And as for whether you need a sound monitor, that kinda depends on whether you will be able to hear the baby cry from where you are in the house.

But if they have any breathing difficulties or need a lot of burping, then a sound monitor is essential.

Movement Monitor

Movement monitors, on the other hand, tend to be aimed at very ill and fragile babies who require a lot more attention.

Otherwise, you may find the needless beeping somewhat annoying unless you want to be alerted as soon as the baby wakes up.

Point To Note

It’s important to note at this point that some of the items that made our shortlist are no use on their own and only work in conjunction with other Angelcare products. Where this applies, we’ve made this clear in our reviews.

Value For Money

When it comes to spending money on your little one, many are inclined to take the view that no expense should be spared.

But between nappies, clothes and formula, you’ll likely be spending money on a weekly basis, so any savings you make can make a huge difference.

We recommend that you check prices as you go along. Amazon UK occasionally has deals on some of the monitors that made our shortlist.

All you have to do is click on “check price” on the one you like to see if there happens to be a deal on now.
