The Angelcare AC401 has been discontinued and replaced with the Angelcare AC403. This is a similar movement/sound monitor with what looks to be upgraded features and an updated parent unit. The link in this review will take you to the AC403 as a suitable replacement option for the AC401 as the two products are similar in form and function. we are currently in the process of purchasing and testing the AC403.
Angelcare AC401 ReviewPrice: $110.00 List | $114.97 at Amazon
Pros: Longest range, good battery life, movement monitor
Cons: Poor sound quality and inconsistent sound, not as easy to use
Bottom line: Complicated user interface makes this sound dropping option undesirable
Open Field Range Test: 900 Feet
Manufacturer's Claimed Range (*buyer beware!): 820 Feet
The Angelcare AC401 is a sound and movement monitor with one of the best range test results in the group. This monitor has a 21+ hour battery life and a variety of features parents may be looking for. Unfortunately, the number of features and a poorly designed user interface make this product harder to use and not intuitive. Also, while the range will get you further in your room we had trouble with intermittent connection problems even in close range and the sound quality is poor compared to the competition. This option is probably only good for parents with range concerns that can tolerate some dropping of sound on a regular basis.
