Can I use a security camera as a baby monitor in Amarillo?

In the process of assembling your child’s first room, you built the crib, painted the space a delicate, lighter hue, and created the ultimate diaper changing station. Now it's time to decide the manner in which you want to watch over your precious one. You could go with the typical monitor that gives you the ability to supervise through an integrated speaker, or you can improve your technology and use high-def video feeds, two-way talk, and initialization through motion sensing.

This advanced option may make you think of cameras included in a complete home protection plan, but can you use a security camera as a baby monitor in Amarillo? 

What features do you need in a baby monitor in Amarillo?

In the olden days, a baby monitor was pretty simple. You install a microphone-type device on a table next to your child’s bed, which transmits an audio feed to a receiver that looks like a walkie talkie. Fortunately, baby monitors now have more options. To illustrate, today’s monitors now offer HD video and two-way talk. You may even connect your monitors to Wi-Fi so you can wander all over the house. The top baby monitors in Amarillo are so advanced that they are similar to inside surveillance in both features and cost.

Would you switch baby monitor with a home security camera?

Since baby monitors and indoor security cameras incorporate comparable functionality, you have many people in Amarillo integrating their nursery to their home security system. This approach is beneficial -- particularly if you’re upgrading to a Vivint smart home -- as your baby monitor will give you access to:

HD video with low-light capability: Your monitoring device should have at minimum 1080p high-definition imaging, and infrared functionality for acceptable viewing of darkened rooms.

Two-way talk: Sometimes, you don't need to go to the nursery to get your newborn back to a restful state. Your calming voice may be the only thing needed to keep your little one peaceful and resting.

Motion sensors: Even though it’s possible to have your monitoring device stay on constantly to keep a close eye on your child, your attention may begin to waver. However, when your security camera notices anything unusual, you can configure it to deliver a message on your phone. This is helpful if your child soundlessly scales out of the crib or if your curious cat sneaks into the space.

Recording capabilities: Many baby monitors aren’t able to save video footage. Now you have the ability to deliver a 20-second clip to friends or family members to show them what a beautiful sleeping baby you have.

Watch on your mobile device: In lieu of carrying monitoring equipment with you, you may now supervise your little one from your home security app. You could even check in on your tot and babysitter when you go for a date night.

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

The great part about utilizing a security camera as a baby monitor in Amarillo is that it will work in unison with your other home security and home automation products. For instance, if you notice that your newborn is having trouble falling asleep, you can adjust your thermostat from mobile security application to increase the room’s comfort. Additionally, when they rouse for a 2 a.m. bottle, you have the chance to gently raise the space’s smart lights to show you will be there soon. And if you have at least two small children in separate spaces, you have the ability to supply each one a camera and monitor the feeds in a single mobile app.
