Safety of wifi 'repeaters' inside nursery

I have a quick question. We have bought the baby ping monitor so we can see our little one on our iPhone.

As our house is on three floors the wifi is quite weak, so we were told to get a 'devolo dLAN 500 wifi repeater', which basically boosts the wifi signal through the electronic sockets.

Do you know any online places where us parents can check to see whether it is safe to have this 'booster' in the same room as little one's crib?

I have heard there are safety questions about electromagnetic waves, etc

can you not have it wired rather than wireless?

Does wifi cause problems for babies?

I would say that the devolo repeaters are fine, we have one upstairs in our house and it means the wifi signal is strong so you could put it in a different room and still use the signal in the babies room.

"Many people fear that EMFs cause cancer; however, a causal connection between EMFs and cancer has not been established. The National Research Council (NRC) spent more than three years reviewing more than 500 scientific studies that had been conducted over a 20-year period and found "no conclusive and consistent evidence" that electromagnetic fields harm humans."

Emf is the reason we have no baby monitor yet (we just drive ourselves mad watching her) & also no wifi repeaters in the house despite a weak signal over 3 floors.

Am exploring options with low emf.
