may be a stupid question, but will they interfere with each other? our house is 3 storey & we cannot hear the kids shout whatsoever when we are downstairs. DS won't come out of his room at night so we still use his & DD will be going in her own room in a few months so we will need a second. We have a BT digital monitor 300 & would prob get another if it will work.

I'm not sure but if you call the number on the box I'm sure they'll be able to help. I rang them the other day as we had a problem with the same model and they were very helpful. I seem to remember the menus weren't very intuitive but I got there in the end... Left a message and someone who knew the monitors called me back.

You will need to check if they can be set to use different frequencies, if yes, then great, if no then they will interfere with each other. you might be ok with it if only one sends a signal at a time - eg only one baby cries at a time, but it might cause cracks and pops and fuzziness- like when you're in your car listening to a local radio station and you cross over into an area where a different local station transmits on that frequency.

Just had a look at the description- doesn't look like it has a range of frequencies sorry!

We have 2 Angelcare monitors, and they both work because they're set to different channels.

Thanks for the replies - forgot i'd posted about this!

I was wrong the one we have is the 200 but I've checked it & cant find any obvious way of adjusting the channels. Coolcat I'm guessing if it could it would say so in description right?

We dont have the box anymore moggle dont suppose u could pm me the phone number off yours could you? Then I will call them to find out for sure.

thanks. turns out the 300 has 120 channels so should be ok.

We've got this
BT monitor for DD which is exactly the same as DSIL and DBIL have for DN and we used them both at the same time with no issues at DPILs.

I use two Motorola digital monitors next to each other with no problem at all. I think with modern digital monitors you don't get interference like the old analogue ones.
