    Default Sound and Movement Monitors / Baby Alarms / Monitors

    Looking for recommendations for baby monitors/alarms that are motion sensitive.

    I have been looking at the Angelcare Sound and Movement Monitor which was going to be our pick but I notice it says "Alarm will sound after 20 seconds if no movement is detected" and 20 seconds is far too long.

    Our baby daughter passed away earlier this year, within seconds, and we were at the hospital at the time so if they couldnt revive her within 20 seconds we certainly wouldnt be capable of doing it at home after a longer period.

    Does anyone know of any monitors with a shorter alarm time?

    The sound part of it isnt so important as we have a very small house so we can hear from any part of the house and the baby will sleep in our room for the first few months anyway so we'll be able to hear if he wakes up during the night but if we're asleep we wont know if he's stopped breathing.

    I have been recommended the Oricom ones not sure if the timing is different on that one as I haven't had a look at that yet.
