Philips-SCD510-DECTDECT Digital baby monitors scramble the signal to provide a secure connection but operate across the same radio frequencies as analog monitors. Although digital baby monitors are less susceptible to static and interference than comparable analog models, there is still the potential for conflict with other wireless devices that operate across the same frequency.

Most wireless baby monitors operate on a 49 MHz, 900 MHz, or 2.4 GHz frequency, but this does not pre-determine whether or not the signal format is being transmitted as analog or digital.

Only the newer baby monitors that use 1.9 GHz frequencies, also called DECT (digitally enhanced cordless telecommunications) technology, are digital formats that are resistant to interference.

DECT technology is the latest platform available for wireless devices, including baby monitors. DECT, which is an acronym for “digitally enhanced cordless telecommunications,” refers to the new 1.9 GHz frequency that was approved by the FCC in 2007 for voice-only communications.

Baby monitors using DECT technology are digital systems that provide superior sound quality and enhanced security. Since they operate across the newer, less-crowded 1.9 GHz bandwidth, they offer zero interference from other wireless systems. The digital format encrypts the audio and video transmissions, providing a secure and private connection between the baby and parent units. Digital audio wireless systems using DECT are resistant to interference and have a range up to 300 m.

Welcoming a new baby to your home is a wonderful time, but have you started to think about babyproofing your home? Before you bring your new bundle of joy home, think about using smart technology to improve your babyproofing.

Security Cameras

Have you given any thought to baby proofing now that your new baby is home?

To keep an eye on your baby while they’re asleep, add a security camera to their bedroom or nursery. If you hired a nanny to care for your child, think about concealing the security camera in an area that’ll let you check on her when you’re not at home.

Door and Window Alarms

Baby proofing your home will help keep your baby safe.

Even before your child is mobile, a door alarm will alert you whenever someone goes into or out of your baby’s room. A window alarm is especially necessary if your baby’s room is on the ground floor.

Have a medicine or chemical cabinet under the sink not for kids? Put an alarm on it to notify you right away if someone was to break the “lock” you’ve put on it. It’s amazing how smart kids are. Don’t be caught by surprise.

Pool Alarm

It’s very important you install an alarm on the door that leads to your pool if your home has a pool. That way, you’ll receive an alert if your baby finds his way to the swimming area. You should also install a pool alarm, which monitors the waves in your pool and will alert you if they detect motion in the water– whether it’s your child or your pet.

Smart Medication Timers

Consider using a smart medication timer if someone in your home uses medication or you need to give your baby medicine. It locks the medication until a specified time, at which point it’ll release the lock and send you an alert to your smartphone. This will prevent your child from getting into your medication and stop you from accidentally giving your baby the same dose twice.

 

Door sensors, indoor cameras, and smart locks all help to make your baby and your home safer, giving you an added piece of mind at the same time. No mater your child’s age, keeping them safe and secure is your number one priority. Utilize these smart tools to help make your job easier.

Of course, even after you consider your technology needs, it’s still important to take care of traditional babyproofing tasks such as adding door latches, installing corner protectors for sharp table edges and tying cords up and out of the way. You’ll have more time to spend reading your baby bedtime stories every night once these are taken care of.

When having a home security system meant installing an alarm and just hoping for the best, gone are the days. Today, wireless security cameras are integral to keeping your home safe. However, are you getting the most out of your system?

New cameras, such as our Ping Camera, does more than just take pictures. Ping is the first indoor camera that enables true two-way talk with the ability to both call in and call out, making it easy for families to communicate and connect.

These features are great for home security, but that’s just the start. Here are a few other creative ways you can use Ping:

1. Getting teenagers out of bed

Mornings can be rushed when you’re trying to get yourself and your kids up, dressed, fed and out the door in an hour. Who has time to go back and forth between various rooms to make sure teens don’t sleep through their alarms?

With Ping, you can see whether the kids have gotten out of bed and traipsed their way to the bathroom to brush their teeth yet. Use Ping to remind them to get up for the second (or third) time if they’re still sleeping. Your kids can also use Ping to talk to you, so expect to take your morning coffee with cream, sugar and some good old-fashioned teenage attitude.

2. Monitoring pets

There won’t be as much two-way communication in this case, but Ping is a great resource for getting your dog off the couch. Its camera and voice capabilities let you check to see what your furry friend is up to at any given time. And, thanks to the video clips, you can check to see whether the dog really did break that vase or tear up those couch cushions.

3. Practicing better home care

Ping could be a big help to both you and your loved ones if you have elderly family members living with you. You can check on them no matter where you are inside or outside the house. If you’re caring for people with mobility issues, they can use Ping to talk to you and ask for help if they need it.

Wireless security cameras like Ping are the next step in home security, but they let you do more than keep an eye on your home. Smart technology makes your home camera a multifunctional tool you can use to make sure everyone in your family is safe, healthy and on schedule.
