Should I utilize a security camera as a baby monitor in Eau Claire?

When setting up the nursery, you put together the cradle, painted the walls a soothing pastel, and created the greatest diaper changing space ever. Now it's time to determine the manner in which you want to keep an eye on your newborn. You have the option of going with the conventional baby monitor that gives you the ability to listen in on a separate listening device, or you can step up the tech and get high-definition video, two-direction communications, and instant activation through motion detection.

The higher tech alternative kind of sounds like cameras found in a modern home security package, but should you use a security camera as a baby monitor in Eau Claire? 

What features do you need in a baby monitor in Eau Claire?

In years past, a baby monitor was pretty simple. You place a a device with a built-in microphone in close proximity to the sleeping area, transmitting sound to a receiver that looks like a walkie talkie. Fortunately, baby monitors now offer many more features. For example, today’s monitors now include clear HD video capability and two-direction communications. You can even link some monitors to your wireless network so you can wander all over the house. The latest baby monitors in Eau Claire are so elaborate that they are similar to indoor security cameras in both features and expense.

Should you replace your baby monitor for an indoor security camera?

Knowing that baby monitors and home defense cameras share similar capabilities, there are quite a few parents in Eau Claire linking their nursery to their home security system. It’s a smart approach -- specifically when using to a Vivint smart home -- as your baby monitor will give you access to:

HD video with low-light capability: Your security camera should have at minimum 1080p high-definition imaging, and infrared functionality for night vision.

Two-way talk: Now you don’t need to go to the nursery to quiet your baby back to a restful state. Your calming voice could be the only thing needed to keep your little one asleep.

Motion sensors: Even though you can have your camera continuously carefully watch your newborn, your attention might start to lag. But if your video surveillance identifies anything unusual, you can configure it to deliver a message to your mobile device. Perfect when your adventurous newborn silently tries to climb over the crib or if your curious cat wanders into the nursery.

Video recordings: Most baby monitors don’t record portions of video. Now you have the ability to send a 20-second clip to grandparents to show them what a beautiful sleeping baby you have.

Smartphone access: In lieu of having to lug an external monitor wherever you go, you can watch from your home security app. You can even say hello to your young one and babysitter if you’re able to get an evening away.

Your security camera baby monitor can be part of a larger smart home

The great part about implementing a security camera as a baby monitor in Eau Claire is that it can link to your corresponding smart home products. For instance, if you notice that your baby is struggling to sleep, you are able to tweak your integrated thermostat from mobile security application to make it more comfortable. Or when they awaken for a late-night snack, you can gently raise the room's smart bulbs to signal you’re coming. And if you have two or more small children in separate spaces, you can supply each one a camera and monitor the feeds in the same mobile app.
