No problem, your AC701 monitor has the sound options of:
Sound Activated (VOX ON)
This means that it will transmit sounds only when it detects them. To save power, after 10 seconds, the sound transmission will stop if no sound is detected. Once sound is detected transmission will automatically activate.
To test if sound is being detected, when music/a radio is being played (not lullaby’s as the decibels do not change as this is soothing music) if the decibels don’t change for 10 seconds the sound will automatically cut off to save power.
Continuous Sound (VOX OFF)
This means that sound monitoring is continually ON, picking up any sounds in the room including static/white noise.
It may be that the setting has accidentally been changed to Sound Activated.
To activate or deactivate either function or check that your chosen function is working see the following:
- For Continuous Sound press the VOX icon so an x shows
- For Sound Activated press the VOX icon so no x shows
Please Note: when your monitor is set to ECO mode even if the monitor is set to Continuous Sound monitoring, it automatically reverts to Sound Activated monitoring.
Also check that the VOX sensitivity has not been lowered - you have 4 levels - 4 is the highest:
Press the Settings icon to access setting mode
Press the VOX Sensitivity icon
The icon will flash
Use the (+) or (-) on the right side of the Parent Unit to choose the desired sensitivity level (1 to 4)
Press the VOX sensitivity icon to select your preferred level
Press the return icon to confirm and save your choice
