baby monitor horror stories

We recently purchased a baby monitor (a little late in the game, I know, but I can't hear 15mo all the time in my room) and last night I kept hearing odd static noises and what sounded like small footsteps. I'm pretty sure we don't have mice because we have sticky traps all over and have yet to find one since we moved in.
Also, our dog would have found it.
What the fuck?

Those things pick up all kinds of different sounds depending on frequency.

how are things going by the way? Didnt you have to make a big move with your kiddos? Or am I thinking about someone else?

I get some static-sounding stuff sometimes in mine. Is it digital?

THey generally aren't the most advanced technology. I'm sure it's technical.

Do you live in an apartment or in close quarters to another home? They pick up on other frequencies VERY often. You might be hearing something in another household. If it's one that has two different frequencies to choose from, try the other frequency.

It always freaked me out too. I'm such a light sleeper anyway and it was so hard to sleep in the baby monitor years.
