VTech: Baby Monitor Line Adds Pan and Tilt Capabilities [Professional Services Close - Up]
(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) VTech Communications, an electronics company and a subsidiary of VTech Holdings, on December 4 launched its new Safe & Sound Pan & Tilt Full-Color Video & Audio Monitor (VM333), giving parents a monitoring option with side-to-side and up and down camera mobility.
According to a release, the new feature-rich system builds on the VTech baby monitor collection that includes the Full-Color Video and Audio Monitor (VM321) and the Digital Audio Monitor (DM221).
"Childproofing and monitoring can help parents avoid most of the unintentional injuries that can be dangerous to children under four," said Kimberlee Mitchell, child safety expert. "The new Safe & Sound Pan & Tilt Full-Color Video & Audio Monitor has all the important features to keep little ones safe at different stages of development, while also ensuring privacy and security through digital transmissions."
Vtech noted that the new Pan & Tilt Full-Color Video & Audio Monitor uses 2.4GHz digital frequency hopping spread spectrum technology that constantly switches frequencies to provide secure audio/visual monitoring that prevents interference and unwelcome spying. High-quality sounds and video resolution is available up to 1,000 feet away, providing flexibility and reliability as the caregiver moves about the home. The 2.8-inch video screen and 2x zooming capability allow parents to observe big and small movements for peace of mind. If parents want to console a child, the two-way intercom system provides an alternative to entering the room to deliver a quick calming word.
"This versatile, pan and tilt addition to VTech's baby monitor line grows with a baby's mobility and a family's need for peace of mind," said Matt Ramage, senior vice president, product management, VTech Communications, Inc. "VTech's monitors have been recognized by parents for rich features and smart prices, and we are committed to continually anticipating their needs and delivering products that make their lives easier while keeping them better connected."
Not limited to checking on children, the pan and tilt monitor can be used for various home needs such as keeping an eye on pets or caring for an older adult, the company said. Up to three additional cameras can be added to provide four views simultaneously on a split video screen. Even in a dark room, the infrared night-vision capability gives visibility while a temperature sensor allows users to make sure their loved ones or pets are comfortable. A six-level LED sound indicator and a vibrating alert for when the receiver is muted provide options for an alert system that works best for each family.
