A smart and feature-rich Netgear baby monitoring system has been released by Duxbury Networking.

Dubbed the Arlo Baby Smart HD Monitoring Camera, the device goes far beyond traditional baby monitors to significantly improve the monitoring experience while providing the solution busy parents require to keep their families safe and at ease.

The Arlo Baby includes a music player, ambient sensors for monitoring air quality, temperature and humidity, and a built-in multi-coloured, remotely-dimmable night light. It is also equipped with a full set of in-built monitoring options such as remote access to video, live streaming and recording, two-way audio and advanced night vision capabilities.

This means parents can watch over their baby in high definition [HD] video from anywhere. A built-in rechargeable battery means the Arlo Baby camera can go untethered, so parents can move the camera around the house as needed.

Arlo Baby’s smart analytics platform provides realtime, customisable alerts when motion or sound are detected, in particular the distinctive sound of a baby’s crying.

The Arlo Baby’s recommended retail price is R6,299 including VAT
