We’ve had the monitor on my nightstand since our oldest’s birth and although it has been primarily used as their nightlight recently, I still find great comfort in knowing that I can easily keep an eye on them through even the darkest of nights. Of course, having had our current model for a good number of years now, it has certainly seen better days. Not wanting to spend the money on a new one since it is no longer a true necessity; I was thrilled when I was presented with the opportunity to test one out for all of you. With that being said, please allow me to introduce you to D-Link.
D-Link helps you connect to more of everything with our innovative approach to computer networking. From relatively modest beginnings in Taiwan, the company has grown over the last 25 years into an exciting global brand offering the most up-to-date network solutions.
In addition to my own children growing up entirely too quickly, the years have also brought a new wave of technology that has worked its way into the lives of the masses. Computer ownership is no longer a rarity, everyone seems to be walking around with smartphones glued to their hands, we can easily video chat with folks from halfway across the globe, and many of our own children have mastered the art of technology use quicker than our own parents. It was only a matter of time before that very same technology reached the world of baby gear. Today, that time has come.
I was lucky enough to be able to try out the all new D-Link HD Pan & Tilt Wi-Fi Baby Camera.
Watch over your child anytime, anywhere with the DCS-855L Pan/Tilt Baby Camera. Pan/tilt functionality lets you move the camera remotely. Monitor an entire playroom with ease from your mobile device! With night vision, temperature monitoring, sound and motion detection, 2-way audio, notifications and more, the DCS-855L keeps you connected to your family.
After tearing into the box, I was a bit worried that the setup would be a bit on the more difficult end of things due to the Wi-Fi connection but I was wrong. To my surprise, I found that setting up the camera was an absolute breeze and, really, just a few quick steps.
Being that it is its namesake, the pan and tilt aspect of the D-Link HD Pan & Tilt Wi-Fi Baby Camera is utterly amazing. This is the first baby monitor that I’ve had that truly allows the parent to have full control over the cameras positioning as opposed to having it fixated in a single direction or angle.

As parents, we always want to savor the days when our babies are, well, babies. Even as the years pass and no matter how quickly they grow, it is our job to keep a watchful eye over them.
