You have the option to have the screen save function OFF (video display is always ON) or, set to display for 30 seconds, 1 min, 2 mins or 3 mins before going into screen save mode.
See the following for how to change to your preferred setting:
Press the MENU button on the Parent Unit
Press the SETTINGS button in the MENU screen
Press the + and – icons next to the power save icon until the preferred Power Saving setting is selected (OFF, 5, 10, 15 or 20 seconds)
Press OK twice to save the changes and return to the video capture screen
Please Note: when the screen save option is deactivated the re-chargeable battery power can be reduced by the constant transmission between the Parent Unit and Nursery Unit.
The Parent Unit and Nursery Unit are constantly transmitting to each other when they are switched ON as the units are monitoring temperature, sound etc.
In addition to this when the microphone in the Nursery Unit detects any noise, whether it`s your baby or background noise (even white noise) this is also transmitted from the Nursery Unit to the Parent Unit.
This can reduce the re-chargeable battery power in the Parent Unit. Rechargeable battery life can also vary per home/room that they are being used in. Therefore when used in your friends/neighbours homes rechargeable battery power will vary due to different room/environments.
We do recommend that in order to ensure that the Parent Unit remains ON & charged that you keep the Parent Unit connected to mains power.
