D-Link Offers Tips for Keeping an Eye on What Matters Most During National Baby Safety Month

Wi-Fi Baby Camera Helps Connected Parents Monitor Baby with a Smartphone or Tablet

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Taking steps to baby-proof your home and attentive supervision are the best ways to prevent injuries. However, even the most watchful parents can't keep their little ones completely out of harm's way. Fortunately there are a range of tools available to parents today to help childproof the house and keep an extra eye on what's going on. D-Link joins parents, caregivers and other organizations during Baby Safety Month to share tips, tools and helpful information for keeping baby safe.

From baby's first smile to baby's first steps of mischief, the D-Link® Wi-Fi Baby Camera (DCS-825L) provides a convenient way for parents to stay connected, whether they're in the next room or away from home. The Wi-Fi Baby Camera features HD video, integrated motion and sound detection, temperature sensing, night-vision technology, and video recording to help with a range of at-home and remote monitoring for multiple users – using a mobile device and the mydlink Baby Camera Monitor app and service.

"The first few years are a whirlwind of milestones coupled with the hope that you're doing everything you can as parents to keep your little one safe," said Daniel Kelley, vice president of marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc. "Taking steps to safety-proof your home and keeping a constant eye are essential, so the Wi-Fi Baby Camera can be an invaluable tool, allowing parents to monitor the nursery's temperature, listen to and talk to baby remotely, or check on sleep patterns using the camera's night-vision technology."

In honor of National Baby Safety Month, following are helpful tips from D-Link for keeping an eye on baby:

  • Baby-Proofing 101: First and foremost, make sure to follow recommended steps for baby-proofing the home, ensuring that toxic and/or hazardous materials are out of reach, installing baby safety gates to block off staircases, pools and other potential dangers, covering electrical outlets, and placing child monitoring solutions in key locations around the home.
  • Stay Connected Anytime, Anywhere: The Wi-Fi Baby Camera allows parents to keep an extra eye on baby by easily connecting to an existing Wi-Fi network for local and remote monitoring (via Internet connection). In addition, it can be used when a wireless network is not available by wirelessly connecting your mobile device directly to the camera for instant local monitoring – a handy feature for use while traveling.
  • Never Miss a Moment: The free mydlink™ Baby Camera Monitor app allows parents to take snapshots or video clips and save them directly to a mobile device for viewing and sharing. For added convenience, the microSD card records video when motion or sound is detected to ensure no details, special moments or potentially dangerous newly discovered interests are overlooked.
  • Don't Skip a Beat: With the Wi-Fi Baby Camera, parents are equipped with multiple tools to instantly alert them if something is amiss in the nursery or around the house, including motion, sound and temperature alerts along with HD video and infrared lights for viewing at night. In addition, two-way audio allows parents to hear exactly what's going on and respond right away if necessary.

The D-Link Wi-Fi Baby Camera (DCS-825L) is now available for $179.99 at Amazon.com, BestBuy.com, Target.com, Walmart.com, and throughout D-Link's vast network of retail and e-tail outlets in the United States. More information is available online at www.dlink.com/babymonitor.
