We advise you to use the baby unit from the mains. To guarantee automatic power backup in case of mains failure, you can insert 1.5V AA alkaline batteries.
To prevent batteries to run low quickly:
Solution 1: The microphone sensitivity level of the baby unit may be set too high, which causes the baby unit to transmit more often. Decrease
the microphone sensitivity level with the SENSITIVITY button on the parent unit.
Solution 2: The volume on the baby unit may be set too high, which causes the baby unit to consume a lot of energy. Decrease the volume on the baby unit.
Solution 3: Perhaps you have switched on the nightlight. If you want to use the nightlight, we advise you to run the baby unit on household power.
Solution 4: You may have set a maximum room temperature that is lower than the actual room temperature or a minimum room temperature that is higher than the actual room temperature. In this case the display is lit all the time, which increases the power consumption of the baby unit. This causes the non-rechargeable batteries of the baby unit to run low quickly. This last solution is not applicable for models SCD505 and SCD510.
