Graphic Symbol Explanation

 

The lightning flash with arrowhead symbol, within an equilateral triangle, is intended to alert 

the user to the presence of insinuated “dangerous voltage” within the product’s enclosure that 

may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock to persons.
 The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user to the presence 

of important operating maintenance (servicing) instructions in the literature accompanying the 

appliance.
Never place this baby monitor near water.  Placing any electronic near sinks, toilets, bath tubs, or 

swimming pools is incredibly dangerous and can create shock hazards for yourself or your child. 
This digital baby monitor does not take the place of adult supervision

.

Using Night Vision

The camera has nine night vision LEDs so it can see in the dark. This night vision uses the power of infrared 

light, which is 100% safe for babies. The camera has a light sensor and will activate the night vision only when 

it gets dark. When you turn off the lights, you will notice a faint red glow in the front of the camera; these are 

the LEDs lit up. Automatic night vision activation saves you time and energy costs.

SYNCING CAMERA AND MONITOR 

The Monitor is capable of going approximately 450 feet (150 meters) 

away from the camera and still be within range to communicate, 

hear and view the camera. This will depend on environmental        

factors that may increase or decrease the maximum wireless range. 

The link LED will be green when the monitor and camera are paired 

and red when they are not paired. 

•  If the signal is lost between the monitor and the Camera the 

message “OUT OF RANGE” will appear on the monitor. This 

could be caused by the camera having no power or the distance 

between the camera and monitor being too far. Try moving the 

camera and monitor closer together, if this does not fix the issue, 

try syncing the monitor and camera. Syncing the monitor and 

camera may also improve the audio quality. 

•  To sync the monitor and camera: 

1.  With both units powered on, press the VOX button on the 

monitor and the night light button on the camera at the 

same time. Hold both buttons down for approximately           

5 seconds.

2.  The words “Signal Searching will appear on the monitor”.
3.  Once the night lights (stars) on the camera blink three 

times the camera and monitor will been synced and you can 

properly view your camera on your handheld monitor.

Troubleshooting

If you are not getting any signal at all:

•  Make sure the camera and the monitor are turned on
•  Make sure the power plugs are pushed all the way in
•  If the camera/monitor is powered by batteries, replace all batteries with 

 

new ones

If the signal is poor, or there is interference:

•  If there is a microwave oven in use in the path between the camera and 

monitor, turn off the microwave

•  Make sure the camera and the monitor are within range of each other

 (optimal range of approximately 100  

ft; 150 ft in a clear line of sight)

•  Keep all parts and accessories out of young children’s reach
•  Fingerprints or dirt on the lens surface can adversely affect camera performances. Avoid touching the lens  

surface with your fingers

•  Should the lens become dirty, use a blower to blow off dirt and dust, or a soft, dry cloth to wipe off                

the lens

•  Keep the camera dry. Precipitation, humidity, and other liquids contain minerals which will corrode                  

electronic circuits

•  Do not use or store in dusty, dirty areas
•  Do not store in hot areas. High temperatures can shorten the life of electronic devices and warp or melt  

certain plastics

•  If the power LED is on but only voice signal input is detected, the monitor can be in voice-activated mode.  

Press the VOX button to turn on the screen

•  The VOX LED should be off to indicate the unit is in normal operation mode, If this does not work try to sync  

the camera and monitor again

Lithium Battery Tips

The rechargeable battery of the handheld monitor is a built-in lithium-polymer battery. Before using the monitor 

with battery power, please read the following in order to use the battery properly.

1.  Under normal temperatures the battery can be recharged at least 300 times. 

2.  If the battery is not already full, make sure that the battery is charged before use.
3.  When the device is not in use, switch the unit off to maintain battery power.
4.  Unplug the power adapter when not in use.

5.  In colder environments, the unit will consume more power. Please keep this device at room temperature to 

increase the usable power. In environments with low temperatures it will take longer to recharge than in 

normal temperature environments.

6.  To avoid danger, do not use the power adapter in high temperature and high humidity locations.

7.  It is normal for the unit’s battery to feel slightly warm while the monitor is in use or is charging. Do not 

leave the power adapter connected for an extended period of time.

8.  For your own safety, the battery is set to stop charging when the battery temperature is higher than 45°C 

or lower than 5°C. Charging will automatically resume once temperatures are back to normal.

9.  In order to avoid damaging the battery, do not expose the monitor to high temperature environments 

(45°C or above).

10.  Even if the battery is fully charged, power will gradually be lost if the monitor is not used for an extended 

period. Make sure to recharge if the unit has not been in use for a long period of time. 

11.  Always use the supplied power adapter only to recharge the monitor’s battery. Using any other power adapter 

could ruin the monitor or cause extreme burns.

HELP SUPPORT THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR MISSING & EXPLOITED CHILDREN

Levana is a proud supporter of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. This non-profit organiza-

tion was established in 1984 to help prevent child abduction and sexual exploitation; help find missing 

children; and assist victims of child abduction and sexual exploitation, their families, and the professionals 

who serve them.

The NCMEC encourages everyone to utilize their services 

in the event of child abduction or exploitation. Their 

services include:

•  National 24-hour toll free hotline, 1-800-THE-LOST®, 

to intake reports of missing children and receive 

leads about ongoing cases 

•  Provides assistance to families and law                        

enforcement agencies in locating and recovering 

missing and exploited children, both nationally and 

internationally 

•  Deploys Team Adam, a rapid response and support 

system comprised of retired law enforcement 

officers, to provide on-site technical assistance to 

local law enforcement agencies investigating cases of 

child abduction and sexual exploitation 

•  And much more… 

Each year over 700,000 children are reported missing, and research indicates that 1 in 5 girls and 1 in 10 boys 

will be sexually victimized before adulthood. These statistics show us how important organizations like the 

National Center for Missing & Exploited Children are, and you can help support them. If you would like to 

contribute to this worthwhile cause, place a direct donation by visiting www.missingkids.com or by clicking 

the NCMEC widget on www.mylevana.com. Thank you for your generosity.
