The decision to bring someone into your home to care for your child may be a difficult one, not only in the process of searching for a nanny, but then to have the confidence that they will provide the type of care for your child that you would.

When my wife and I hired our first nanny, like many parents do, we talked to our friends and neighbors looking for references. We finally decided on a local babysitter that came highly recommended from the couple next door, but we still wanted some additional peace of mind. That’s when I first started looking for nanny cameras for home.
Like most people, my first place to start looking for nanny cameras was by going to Google and simply typing in “nanny cameras for home”. This gave me hundreds of thousands of results, so I had a lot of reading to do. After doing some research, I discovered that there are three kinds of nanny cameras for home:
Self-Recording Cameras that record to SD Card or Memory Card
Wireless mini cameras that stream video to your VCR or digital video recorder
Internet Remote-View Cameras that let you stream video over the internet
Each type of nanny camera has pros and cons to take into consideration. Price is the first factor – they can range from a couple hundred to several hundred dollars, depending on quality. The quality of camera is also a factor – you can get cameras from webcam quality all the way up to full HD quality.
The easiest to use hidden camera to monitor your babysitter is a self-recording camera that records internally. This type of camera is pretty much plug and play, and allows you to record video to an SD card, and then view it on your computer. The wireless camera takes a little more setup, but is convenient when you want to stream your video to a separate recording device.
