No one likes to leave their little ones behind when they
have to go to work. In-home childcare and babysitters are a part of
daily life for many parents. Parents love their children and sometimes
they simply need a small break. Nannies and babysitters offer their
child care services to mind the children while parents are away (either
at play or work). Most often, the children and the childcare
professional get along well; but unfortunately there are times when the
relationship is strained or becomes uncomfortable. Surveillance cameras,
“nanny cams,” or cctv cameras help to record all day to day activity
between the child, care provider or the nanny, and provides helpful
evidence and information in the event of any possible wrongdoings.
– Parents have the option of using covert surveillance when monitoring
their home and children. Many nanny cams are offered in concealed
clocks, stereos, books and other household appliances, and will secretly
record all your childcare activities and relations with your nanny or
babysitter. Covert nannycams can provide insight into your babysitters
behavior and helps give you an objective perspective.
See from anywhere – The latest in Nanny
Cams offer HD digital technology and can be monitored and viewed from
practically anywhere in the world. This allows working parents the
ability to monitor their children at anytime.
Push alerts – Newer smartphones offer push
notifications to keep customers alerted of important information. Newer
HD DVRs, NVRs and IP cameras offer parents the ability to receive an
instant push notification when someone enters a room, a specific area or
comes to the door. This notification will take you to the live video
feed so you can better assess the situation. You even have the option of
using email to be notified as well.
Babysitter Cameras the Disadvantages
Privacy Consent – While many babysitters
not care that they are being monitored or recorded, there are those that
simply get outraged knowing they are being monitored without their
consent. All states vary in regards to consent and we suggest you check
with your State laws before installing your cameras.
Camera Damage – Since many cameras are
hidden in common household appliances, they are prone to damage. Often
times your covert “book”, “alarm clock,” or “stereo,” gets knocked over
or falls to the floor causing your cameras to get damaged.
Nanny Surveillance Questions
There are several factors to consider when choosing a
security cameras solution for nanny cameras. Please consider each of the
following when your purchasing and installing your security cameras:
What area of the house you want to record?

What are your expectations for the NannyCam? What do want to see or catch?
Babysitter Surveillance and Nanny Cam Setup Advice
Pick a concealed camera or camera that blends into your
surroundings – as an example do not place teddy bear camera on your
kitchen counter or use an alarm clock camera in the living room.
Double and triple check the laws in your area regarding
surveillance consent and whether or not you must notify parties of
- Keep recording devices used to record your cameras away
from plain site. Any monitoring devices should not be visible by your
babysitters or nannies.
