Angel Eye Camera Systems recently installed 10 camera systems in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Connecticut Children's Medical Center in Hartford and plans to install another 10 cameras in the Connecticut Children's NICU at the University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington.
Using the Angel Eye camera system, parents can see and talk to their baby anytime from their mobile phone or computer, according to a news release.
As long as the parents have provided them with the proper security credentials, other people can see the baby on their computers or cellphones anytime while the infant is in the NICU. An unlimited number of viewers can simultaneously access one camera.
"I think it's going to be a great help for the family as a unit to stay involved with the baby and stay involved with each other during this time," Dr. Jim Moore, NICU medical director at Connecticut Children's Medical Center, said in the release.
Moore said plans call to outfit all NICU beds with a camera, both in Hartford and at the Connecticut Children's unit in Farmington.
