Should I utilize a security camera as a baby monitor in Miami?

When setting up your child’s first room, you built the crib, painted the space a soft, lighter shade, and established the ultimate diaper changing station. Now it's time to determine how you want to watch over your precious one. You might go with the conventional monitoring choice that lets you hear on a separate listening device, or you can improve your technology and utilize HD video, two-direction communications, and activation motion detection.

The high-tech version kind of sounds like cameras included in a comprehensive home security system, but should you use a security camera as a baby monitor in Miami? 

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

In years past, a baby monitor was pretty simple. You put a a device with a built-in microphone on a table next to the sleeping area, transmitting sound to a walkie-talkie-looking receiver. Fortunately, baby monitors now provide additional benefits. For example, today’s monitors now offer high-definition video feeds and two-way talk. You can also connect many monitors to Wi-Fi so you are able to wander throughout your home. The top baby monitors in Miami are so elaborate that they mimic indoor security cameras in both functionality and cost.

Would you replace your baby monitor for an integrated surveillance system?

Knowing that baby monitors and indoor security cameras share many of the same features, there are many people in Miami linking their child’s bedroom to their overall home defense. This approach is beneficial -- especially if you’re upgrading to a Vivint smart home -- as your baby monitor will give you access to:

Night vision video: Your monitoring device should have at least 1080p HD resolution, and infrared functionality for reliable low-light performance.

Two-direction audio: Sometimes, you don't need to go into the room to get your child back to a gentle slumber. Your calming voice may be the only thing needed to keep bundle of joy asleep.

Motion sensors: While it’s an option to have your camera continuously keep a close eye on your child, your attention could start to lag. However, when your camera notices anything unusual, then you can get a text alert to your smartphone. You will appreciate this if your child quietly scrambles up the crib or if your curious cat sneaks into the nursery.

Save and send recordings: Most baby monitors don’t record portions of video. Today’s modern devices allow you to send a brief sample to friends or family members to allow them a glimpse of what a beautiful sleeping baby you have.

Mobile phone monitor: As an alternative to lugging monitoring equipment around, you can supervise your little one from a simple smartphone app. You can even say hello to your child and sitter if you’re lucky enough to have a night out.

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

One important benefit about using a security camera as a baby monitor in Miami is that it can link to your corresponding home security and home automation products. So, for example, if you notice that your baby is particularly restless, you have the ability to adjust your integrated thermostat from the security app to make it more comfortable. Additionally, when they rouse for a 2 a.m. bottle, you have the chance to gently raise the nursery’s smart lighting to signal that you're on your way. If you by chance have multiple babies in different rooms, you can give each one a camera and monitor the feeds in the same mobile app.
