How to set up and use the baby monitor feature on a telephone.

This feature allows you to listen in on a room where another handset is located, allowing you to easily monitor from different areas of the house or even while away from home. The monitored handset (placed in a baby’s room, for example) will automatically call the monitoring handset or the phone number stored when it detects sound.


This feature is also available between a handset and the base for models with a base keypad.


  • Before using this feature, we recommend that you test this feature and adjust the baby monitor sensitivity as needed especially if you plan to monitor from outside.
  • This feature should not be used as a substitute for a medical or caregiver’s supervision. It is the caregiver’s responsibility to stay close enough to handle any eventuality.
  • If the unit is connected to a PBX system, you cannot set the baby monitor.
  • During the monitoring mode, battery consumption is faster than usual. We recommend leaving the monitored handset on the base unit or charger.
  • The monitored handset never rings while it is being monitored. If the base unit is placed near the monitored handset, we recommend turning off the base unit ringer volume.
