Summer Infant Launches New Line of Internet Baby Viewing Systems, Providing Parents Peace of Mind, Anywhere, Anytime

Peek(TM) Plus and Connect (TM) Baby Video Viewing Systems Offer Frustration-Free Set Up and Use, Private and Secure Internet Viewing, and Free Smartphone App

WOONSOCKET, RI -- (Marketwire) -- 06/20/12 -- Summer Infant®, the leading brand of baby video monitors, introduces a full-range line of Internet baby video viewing systems, a first-of-its-kind, thanks to its combination of innovative features and ease-of-use. The series includes the Peek Plus Internet Baby Monitor System and the Connect Internet Baby Camera Set. Both Internet-enabled systems allow users to view baby from virtually anywhere in the world via a private and secure website and come with a plug-and-play Internet gateway and camera. Peek Plus also includes a handheld monitor for in-home viewing. The new Summer Infant systems are ideal for working parents wanting to check on their napping child, grandparents who might not otherwise get a glimpse of precious, everyday moments, and for deployed military families in different time zones.

"Building on our market leadership in video baby monitors, technical experience, and in-depth consumer research, we are very proud to expand our offerings with this easy-to-use and innovative range of viewing systems," said Jason Macari, President and CEO, Summer Infant. "Peek Plus and Connect not only provide caregivers the comfort of watching and hearing their baby while at home, the systems also allow them to see the center of their world -- their baby -- from anywhere in the world."

Peek Plus -- Secure Viewing Online, Plus In-home Monitor
Peek Plus is a user-friendly, software-free system equipped with a handheld video monitor that allows caregivers to watch baby's movements and hear her sounds while in the home and a private and secure website for simple and clear online viewing anywhere. The system was carefully designed to ensure a frustration-free set-up and there are no fees associated with use. A unique username and password combination can be shared with family and friends, allowing for up to three Internet viewers at one time.

A free application -- compatible with iPhone, iPad, iTouch, BlackBerry, and Android -- can be downloaded and used on mobile devices, letting caregivers and loved ones check in on baby with the touch of a button.

"It's important for parents to listen for sounds and cries from their baby when they are in a different room of the home," said Dr. Alanna Levine, pediatrician and mother. "I've found many parents gain peace of mind using a video baby monitor that allows them to both hear and see what's happening when they are not present in the nursery."

Connect -- Internet Access to Peek in from Afar
Parents looking solely for Internet viewing capabilities now have the solution in the Summer Infant Connect Internet Baby Camera Set. Connect offers simple, quick set-up, a free Internet viewable website, and a downloadable application for iPhone, iPad, iTouch, BlackBerry and Android. Up to three family and friends can view the little one online with the included private username and password combination.

Peek Plus Internet Baby Monitor System will be sold exclusively at Babies "R" Us beginning the week of July 22, 2012 and pre-order is available now. A product demonstration can be viewed at www.summerinfant.com/peekplus. Suggested retail for the system is $349.99.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
