The camera delivers a secure image stream for parents and family members to view their baby remotely. Family members can securely access NicView® from anywhere there is an internet connection via a laptop, smartphone, or tablet. The service is compatible with any internet capable device and most popular browsers.
Once you have signed a consent form to use the NicView® Streaming Camera System, you will be provided a print-out with your unique log-in credentials. These credentials can also be emailed or texted to you if you prefer. The first time you or a family member log-in from a new computer, tablet, or smart phone, you may be asked to acknowledge a one-time consent.
If you desire, you can share these credentials with your family and friends. Please remind them not to share your log-in credentials with others without your permission.
NicView® produces a streaming image that travels securely with up to 256-bit SSL encryption, the current web standard, similar to online banking. Cameras do not transmit sound & do not record video. No other users will have access to your baby’s images unless you have provided them the log-in credentials.
Once you are logged in, you will start receiving streaming images of your baby.
However, if the nurse is caring for your baby, the camera may be temporarily ‘off-line’ in which case you will see an ‘off-line’ image. Please check back shortly. Remember, your baby’s care is the TOP priority and your baby’s image may be off-line frequently. Please be patient and know your baby is receiving great care.
Helpful Information about NicView® for Parents:
