Samsung Introduces Wi-Fi Video Baby Monitor at CES 2012
Parents are always concerned about their baby’s safety and, along those lines, Samsung (News - Alert) Techwin America, a company in consumer video monitoring and security products, has introduced a product that will enable parents to monitor the activity of their baby inside the room while they are not physically present.
Samsung's new Wi-Fi Video Baby Monitor is a recipient of a 2012 Innovations Design and Engineering Award. Samsung's Wi-Fi Video Baby Monitor offers industry leading design, technology and security, making it the ultimate solution for parents looking to keep a safe eye on their children, according to company officials. It has an easy to use IP-based camera that features a one-touch button that automatically pairs the device to a wireless home network in under 30 seconds. No installation of software is required.
The company will offer free apps for mobile platforms, including Android (News - Alert) and iOS, so that parents can see through the lens of the camera no matter where in the world they may be and from nearly any mobile device. It measures 1.25 inch thick and 3.15 inch in diameter and the Wi-Fi Video Baby Monitor can be placed just about anywhere. It also comes with a swiveling bracket which allows parents to mount the device to a wall.
"Parents turn to video baby monitors because they're looking for peace of mind, and with Samsung's new Wi-Fi solution we're showing here at CES 2012, they're getting that and a whole lot more," said Mike Palazzolo , vice president of sales and marketing, consumer video monitoring and security products, Samsung Techwin America.
