Further information

Connection

The BE1490 Visit Baby Cry Transmitter is activated via the built-in microphone (2).

Settings

No adjustments are required for normal use. The relevant descriptions are provided below, if you wish to change a setting for some reason.

Radio key

In order to use several Bellman Visit Systems close to one another without interference, different Radio Keys can be set on the different systems. All Bellman Visit System units are supplied from the factory tuned to the same Radio Key, channel 0. This means that all Radio Key Switches on the transmitters are set to the OFF position.

  • To alter the Radio Key, move the Radio Key Switches (8) to the desired positions.

Please note:red triangle

All Bellman Visit products within the same system must be tuned to the same Radio Key in order to operate as a group.

Signal pattern

A Signal Pattern is the name for the way in which a receiver in the Bellman Visit System indicates activation. Changing the transmitters’ Signal Switch changes the Signal Pattern which the receivers display when the transmitter is activated. Follow the instructions under Appendix/Further information/Settings/Setting the activation pattern to make your choice.

THE FOLLOWING SIGNAL PATTERNS ARE AVAILABLE FOR THE VISIT baby cry TRANSMITTER BE1490:
TypeLED patternSoundVibrationFlash
Baby 1 Orange is constantly lit 1 x ding dong, low-frequency tone Separate Yes
Baby 2 Orange blinks in sequences of two  2 x ding dong, low-frequency tone Separate Yes
Baby 3 Orange blinks in sequences of three  1 x ding dong, high-frequency tone Separate Yes
Baby 4 Orange blinks constantly  2 x ding dong, high-frequency tone Separate Yes

 

Adjusting the sound sensitivity, signal pattern and delay time

Both the sensitivity and the time can be adjusted to adapt the Visit Baby Cry Transmitter to the child and to the surrounding environment. High sensitivity reacts to faint sounds whereas low sensitivity requires a louder sound to react. The delay time can be adjusted to four preset levels, see table below.

Switch (4)sensetivity switch Adjusts sensitivity to three preset levels.

3 = On, high sensitivity
2 = On, normal sensitivity
1 = On, low sensitivity
0 = Off

Switch (7) dip0000

Adjusts the length of time for which the child needs to cry before the Visit Baby Cry Transmitter will respond and the type of signal pattern that the receivers in the Visit System will emit.

Testing

It is easy to test the Visit Baby Cry Transmitter. If the Baby Cry Transmitter does not work as described below, you can check further under Troubleshooting/Troubleshooting guide.

How to test

Make sure that the Baby Cry Transmitter is correctly connected. Refer to Getting started/Unpacking, fitting and testing the unit for connection instructions.

Testing with the test button:

  1. Press the Test Button (3).
  2. The Visit Baby Cry Transmitter lights up the LED (1) to indicate that the unit is transmitting a radio signal.
  3. The Visit receivers will indicate the Baby Cry Transmitter.


Testing the microphone:

  1. Activate the Baby Cry Transmitter by whistling or speaking.
  2. The Baby Cry Transmitter lights up the LED (1) after the number of seconds that the time delay switches (7) are set to. The LED lights up to indicate that the Baby Cry Transmitter has been activated and that a signal has been transmitted to the receivers in the Visit System.
  3. The receivers in the system will indicate an alarm in the way that the Baby Cry Transmitter is set using the Signal Switches (7). 

Troubleshooting

You can carry out a number of checks yourself before sending a product for repair. 

Troubleshooting guide
 ProblemSolution 
Nothing happens when the transmitter is activated.
  •  Check that the Baby Cry transmitter is switched on
  •  Change the battery. Only use an alkaline 6LR61 or a lithium 6f22 type battery
The LED (1) lights up yellow when the Baby Cry Transmitter is activated.
  •  Change the battery. Only use an alkaline 6LR61 or a lithium 6f22 type battery
The LED (1) lights up green when the Baby Cry Transmitter is activated, but the receivers are not signalling. 
  • Check the battery in the receiver.
  • Check that the receivers are not placed too far away by moving them closer to the transmitter.
  • Check that the Baby Cry Transmitter is set to the correct radio key. For further information see Function/Radio key.
The Baby Cry Transmitter does not signal even though the child is crying.
  •  Increase the sensitivity using the sound sensitivity switch (4) or place the Baby Cry Transmitter closer to the child, but not close enough for the child to reach it. For further information see Function/General.
The Baby Cry Transmitter transmits a signal even though the baby is not making much noise. 
  •  Reduce the sensitivity using the sound sensitivity switch (4) or move the Baby Cry Transmitter further away from the child. For further information see Function/General.
The child cries for a long time before the Baby Cry Transmitter transmits a signal to the receiver. 
  •  Reduce the delay time using the Delay Switch (7). For further information see Function/General.
The Baby Cry Transmitter transmits a signal even though the baby only cries for a short time. 
  •  Increase the delay time using the Delay Switch (7). For further information see Function/General.
The receiver signals when no transmitter is activated. 
  •  Change the Radio Key on all units in the system. For further information see Function/Radio key.
