Why You Need Security Cameras, Part I

teddy camMonitoring your home is important, especially if you trust another to watch your child while you’re away. If you use childcare services like nannies or babysitters, it’s more important than ever to keep an eye on what’s really going on in your home because let’s face it, you never know what could happen. If you’re a concerned parent who wants to keep an eye on things, it may be best for you to try to use surveillance equipment to do it. Not sure where to begin? Here’s what you need to know.

First off, hidden cameras can be a parent’s best friend when it comes to keeping an eye on a nanny or babysitter when you’re away from home. These compact, easy to use devices can either be hidden inside existing objects or come already camouflaged in common items like alarm clocks or teddy bears. However, be careful – the hidden cameras in alarm clock or teddy bear form from ValueTechSupply.com come without audio, so you’ll have to utilize separate surveillance equipment if you want to hear what goes on.

Once you are all set up and turned on, these hidden cameras will monitor your child’s play room or bedroom or any other space in your home with crystal clear picture. There’s no noise from the camera and no wires. They’re virtually undetectable so your sitter won’t know that she’s being watched.

Once you’ve got the footage, it’s time to review it on monitor. Pay close attention to what’s going on between your sitter and your child. Are there things that she’s not telling you? Is she mistreating your child? Ignoring him? Either way, the minute you notice any negative behavior, it’s time to fire your nanny and/or alert the appropriate authorities. There’s no excuse for turning a blind eye. You can make sure that your child is safe and protected by using hidden cameras to monitor your home while you’re away to ensure that your child is getting treated as he or she should be.
