The development of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the form of smart home devices has proven to encroach on all human needs, including the space of babysitting. This is proven through the release of the Arlo Baby smart camera product created by Netgear.
Netgear has released the Arlo Baby which were firstly exhibited at the CES 2018 event in Las Vegas. Arlo Baby is not your typical baby camera that can monitor the condition of the baby in their room and can be accessed via a smartphone, but the product packed a lot of other intelligent features.
Let’s start with the camera, Arlo Baby comes with 1080p HD quality video that is equipped with a night camera so that it can still monitor the baby’s room when the lights are turned off. Not only that, but the camera is also able to monitor the sound and movement recorded on the camera and provide notifications.
In addition to that, where a camera to monitor a baby can only deliver the sound of the baby is in the room, Arlo Baby is claimed to be able to analyze and notify whether the baby’s voice is a cry or not.
The speaker on the camera also supports the feature to play a song or play your recorded voice, so the baby can feel their parents’ presence. There is also a 2-Way Talk feature so the baby and parents can communicate.
All the activities of the baby can be monitored through the application connected to the smartphone. The Arlo application can be downloaded for free on the Play Store and App Store for Android and iOS devices.
Arlo Baby is also complex and interesting. For parents who are very concerned about the condition of their baby’s room, this product can provide an air sensor that provides information on humidity and room temperature of the baby’s room. Parents will also get a notification if the room temperature starts rising or dropping.
This device is also increasingly attractive because the Arlo Baby does not need a power cord to use it. The device has a battery that can be recharged and functions as a smart speaker because it supports the capabilities of Alexa Amazon, Google Assistant, and Apple HomeKit.
