Wireless baby monitor
Here at Tech Digest we are huge fans of baby gadgets. We can’t wait for the day when the broadband buggy complete with video screen and a 3G-powered web browser arrives.
Until then we’ll have to make do with devices like the £140 410BM LCD Wireless Observation System from Brit company Trust.
The system allows the user to monitor their baby, of if their baby has four wheels, their garage at all times of the day and night.
This system consists of two components. There is a wireless colour camera with an integrated mîcrophone and a lens with a 1/3″ CMOS sensor that can be rotated to the desired position. This camera has extra infrared LEDs for black-and-white night vision, so that a nursery, garage or other dark room can be monitored at night.
The system also consists of a wireless monitor with a 4cm colour TFT LCD screen. This portable monitor has an integrated receiver and loudspeaker, as well as an extra video output for connecting it to a TV or video recorder using the Scart cable supplied with the system. The colour monitor can be set so that it turns on automatically when sound is registered.
It operates at a wireless frequency of 2.4 GHz and has three different channels for selecting the best quality signal reception so hopefully it won’t clash with your wireless 802.11b/g home network.
