Before you purchase a nanny camera, you have to ask yourself how the camera will be used everyday most effectively and with minimum effort & time. Here are some recommendations.

 

1) Number of Cameras

You do not need to cover every corners of your house with nanny cameras. We recommend placing one or two cameras where your nanny may spend most time with your child. Just few minutes recording of interaction between your child and the nanny will give you a good idea about your nanny. You will know right away if she is friendly with kids and has good work ethics.

2) Internet Capability vs Recording

Internet viewing is a neat feature and Wi-Fi IP cameras are one of our best seller. But please check if you can be at work and watch the camera at all times. The firewall in your company may prohibit the connection or you won't be able to install the software necessary on the PC at work. All our Wi-Fi IP cameras also come with recording software where you can view the recordings later. If remote monitoring would be difficult, please consider all-in-one cameras which provide more extensive recording capability. Please remember, recording feature is more important than live monitoring.

3) Hiding the Camera Yourself:

People get anxious about the nanny discovering the camera. So some may consider hiding the camera inside of a sheetrock wall which is very difficult. You will need to be a good carpenter and an electrician. We have been selling nanny cams hidden in an object for over 10 years and there was not a single incident where the nanny found the camera. It's not illegal to have hidden cameras in your own house and nannies do not typically memorize the objects in your home. We do carry hide-it-yourself cameras such as wi-fi black box, all-in-one black box & pinhole wireless camera.

 

Best system that does it all.

If you need a system that has the best resolution, multiple camera capability, internet access, motion detection, large storage of video & audio, we recommend RF wireless solution with 5.8GHz upgrade. Our new RF (analog) 5.8GHz transmitters are powerful with 500ft range through walls and you will not have any bleed over problem connecting up to 4 cameras. It will deliver full resolution of the camera and speed (30 f/s). When connected to our high end DVR, it will deliver all the features that you can think of.

If budget is an issue, one or two WI-FI IP cameras or all-in-one cameras will do the job well.

 

With all that in mind, please choose from above the different types of nanny cameras that will work for you & your child.
