Crystal-clear video and 100% private connection ensures peace of mind

March 21, 2011

Auckland, New Zealand – Philips AVENT announces the launch of its first digital baby video monitor. The Philips AVENT Digital Video Monitor SCD600 features a crystal clear, high-resolution colour screen and offers a 100 per cent secure connection between parents and baby for ultimate safety and peace of mind.


“Recognising the needs of parents with young babies, we are proud to introduce our first digital baby video monitor which is 100 per cent secure and will give parents the assurance of knowing their babies are always safe and sound, even when they’re in another room,” said Muir Keir, Senior Customer Marketing Manager, Philips Consumer Lifestyle, Australia and New Zealand. “Philips is a leader in baby care and this new product highlights the innovation we’re delivering to parents globally through technology.”


Delivering crystal clear vision and sound, the Philips AVENT Digital Video Monitor SCD600 is armed with sensors to detect even the tiniest sounds and changes in your baby’s room. It gives parents the comfort of knowing their babies are safe at all times, so that there’s no need for constant tip-toeing in and out of your baby’s room to check up on them.


The new SCD600 delivers constant contact with your baby through a large 2.4 inch high-resolution colour screen, which allows parents to take a ‘quick peek’ to check if the child’s sounds require attention.

The monitor is equipped with infrared night vision, providing round-the-clock clear supervision even under dim night-lighting. Its range of 150m is suitable for most Australian homes.


Sound level lights ensure that you are always aware of noises around the baby. Beyond a certain noise level, the video automatically turns on to alert parents. The SCD600 also offers three soothing lullabies and a nightlight to help soothe your baby to sleep.
