Could I install a security camera as a baby monitor in Tucson?

Could I install a security camera as a baby monitor in Tucson?

In loving preparation of your baby’s room, you built the crib, painted the walls a delicate, lighter hue, and established a fully-stocked diaper-changing area. The next step is to figure out the way you're going to keep an eye on your newborn. You might go with the standard baby monitor that allows you to hear on a separate listening device, or you could improve your technology and utilize high-def video feeds, two-way talk, and instant activation through motion detection.

The higher tech alternative may make you think of cameras found in a complete home protection plan, but should you use a security camera as a baby monitor in Tucson? 

What are you looking for in a baby monitor in Tucson?

In years past, a baby monitor was pretty simple. You install a component with a microphone on a table next to your child’s bed, which transmits an audio feed to a receiver that looks like a walkie talkie. Thankfully, baby monitors now have more options. To illustrate, today’s monitors now include clear HD video capability and two-way talk. You can even link some monitors to your home’s wireless signal so you may roam wherever you want. The leading baby monitors in Tucson are so elaborate that they are similar to inside surveillance in both functionality and cost.

Would you replace your baby monitor for a home security camera?

Since baby monitors and surveillance systems share comparable functionality, you will find many people in Tucson linking their baby's room to their comprehensive home security package. This approach is beneficial -- especially if you’re upgrading to a Vivint smart home -- as your baby monitor will include:

HD video with low-light capability: Your monitoring device should include 1080p high-definition imaging, and infrared LED technology for reliable low-light performance.

Two-direction audio: Sometimes, you don't need to go inside the bedroom to quiet your newborn back to a restful state. Your reassuring words could be the only thing needed to keep your little one asleep.

Sensors and alerts: Even though it’s possible to have your surveillance system function around the clock to watch your baby sleep, your own alertness might diminish over time. Conversely, if your camera identifies unexpected movements, it can be programmed to send a notification to your smartphone. Perfect if your child silently tries to climb out of the crib or if a pet noses into the room.

Save and send recordings: Many baby monitors do not capture portions of video. Now you have the ability to transmit a brief sample to grandparents to allow them a glimpse of what a special, sleepy child you have.

Smartphone access: In lieu of having to lug an external monitor wherever you go, you may now view your child from your smart home mobile app. You might even say hello to your tot and babysitter if you’re lucky enough to have a date night.

Your security camera baby monitor can be part of your integrated smart home plan

The great part about utilizing a security camera as a baby monitor in Tucson is that it will work in unison with your corresponding smart home devices. So, for example, if you see that your newborn is particularly restless, you are able to make adjustments to your integrated thermostat from mobile security application to make it more comfortable. Or when they wake up for their midnight feeding, you might slowly illuminate the nursery’s smart lighting to show you will be there soon. And if you have multiple small children in separate spaces, you can supply each one a camera and monitor the images in a single smartphone app.
