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. Connect Internet Baby Camera Set is available the week of July 29, 2012 at Target and BuyBuy Baby for the suggested price of $229.99.
