Baby monitor

When the baby monitor is switched on, the stored external phone numbers
or all handsets registered to the phone (internal) are called as soon as a
defined noise level is exceeded in the vicinity of the handset. The alarm to an
external number is cancelled after about 90 seconds.
You can answer the alarm using the Two Way Talk function. This function is
used to switch the loudspeaker of the handset located in the baby's room on
or off.
In baby monitor mode, incoming calls are only indicated on the display
(without ringtone). The display backlight is reduced to 50%. Advisory tones
are deactivated. All keys are locked, with the exception of the display keys
and the centre of the control key.
If you accept an incoming call, the baby monitor mode is suspended for the
duration of the call, but the function remains activated. The baby monitor
mode is not deactivated by switching the handset off and on again.
The handset should be positioned 1 to 2 metres away from the baby.
The microphone must point towards the baby.
Activating the function reduces the operating time of your handset.
For that reason, place the handset in the charging cradle if necessary.
The baby monitor is activated 20 seconds after switching on.
