HOW DOES IT WORK

When the camera and the MyDlink Baby application are active you will receive instant push notifications on your portable device every time noises, movements or changes in temperature are detected. Control your camera very easily via the MyDlink Baby app or via the MyDlink web portal.

The application allows parents to have two eyes always focused on the bedroom. The camcorder can be maneuvered through the app: it is possible to follow the child while playing in the bedroom, orienting the direction of the camcorder footage with a few taps without disturbing him (really silent). On the display, in fact, you can watch the shooting, take photos and record videos.

In addition to listening, the video camera speaks: it offers a two-way exchange. Dad and mom can talk to the baby (or anyone in that room) through the built-in microphone and speaker, comforting the kids. The voice not crippled or metallic, so the voice of mom and dad might not scare the children, especially if they are used to listening to it through the video camera since they were very young. Parents can also choose to play a lullaby in the room, among the five different melodies available.
