Can I use a security camera as a baby monitor in West Palm Beach?

Can I use a security camera as a baby monitor in West Palm Beach?

When setting up the nursery, you built the crib, painted the space a soft, lighter shade, and installed a fully-stocked diaper-changing area. You’re now ready to determine how you intend to watch your baby sleep. You have the option of going with the conventional monitor that gives you the ability to listen in through a connected audio receiver, or you might go high-tech and utilize HD video, two-direction communications, and activation motion detection.

This advanced option is equivalent to the cameras incorporated in a complete home protection plan, but would you use a security camera as a baby monitor in West Palm Beach? 

What are you looking for in a baby monitor in West Palm Beach?

In previous generations of parenting, a baby monitor was really straightforward. You install a component with a microphone in close proximity to the crib, which transmits an audio feed to a connected gadget that resembles a walkie talkie. Thankfully, baby monitors now provide additional benefits. For instance, some monitors now include clear HD video capability and 2-way communication. You can even hook your monitors to your wireless network so you are able to wander wherever you want. The top baby monitors in West Palm Beach are so advanced that they resemble interior surveillance systems in both functionality and price.

Should you replace your baby monitor with a home security camera?

Due to the fact that baby monitors and surveillance systems share similar capabilities, you will find many people in West Palm Beach integrating their child’s bedroom to their home security system. This approach is beneficial -- particularly when using to Vivint smart home technology -- as your baby monitor will give you access to:

HD video with low-light capability: Your surveillance system should include 1080p HD resolution, and infrared functionality for night vision.

Two-way talk: Now you don’t need to go into the room to quiet your child back to a restful state. A comforting word could be the only thing needed to keep bundle of joy asleep.

Motion activation: Even though it’s an option to have your surveillance system continuously carefully watch your newborn, your attentiveness may begin to waver. Conversely, if your video surveillance notices unusual activity, then you can get a text alert to your smartphone. This is helpful if your child silently tries to climb up the crib or when your family dog sneaks into the nursery.

Video recordings: Many baby monitors don’t record the video. You can now deliver a 20-second clip to a relative or family friend to let them see what a special, sleepy child you have.

Smartphone access: Instead of having to lug a separate device around, you may now view your child from your smart home mobile app. You can even say hello to your child and sitter when you go for a date night.

A security camera baby monitor is part of a larger smart home

One important benefit about implementing a security camera as a baby monitor in West Palm Beach is that you can connect it to your additional home security and home automation components. So, for example, if you observe that your newborn is struggling to sleep, you have the ability to adjust your smart thermostat from mobile security application to get a more pleasant temperature. In addition, as they awaken for their midnight feeding, you might gently raise the space’s smart lights to signal that you're on your way. And if you have two or more kids in unconnected areas, you can give each one a camera and monitor the images in the same smartphone app.
