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

In the process of assembling the nursery, you built the crib, painted the space a soft, lighter shade, and established the ultimate diaper changing station. Now it's time to determine the way you're going to watch your baby sleep. You could go with the standard baby monitor that gives you the ability to supervise on a separate listening device, or you could improve your technology and utilize HD video, 2-way communication, and instant activation through motion detection.

This advanced option kind of sounds like video surveillance incorporated in a modern home security package, but can you use a security camera as a baby monitor in Yakima? 

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

In previous generations of parenting, a baby monitor was quite basic. You install a component with a microphone in close contact to your child’s bed, transmitting sound to a connected gadget that resembles a walkie talkie. However, baby monitors now offer many more features. For example, some monitors now include HD video and two-way talk. You may even connect your monitors to your wireless network so you can roam wherever you want. The leading baby monitors in Yakima are so sophisticated that they are similar to interior surveillance systems in both capabilities and price.

Would you switch baby monitor with a home security camera?

Due to the fact that baby monitors and surveillance systems share similar capabilities, there are many people in Yakima connecting their child’s bedroom to their overall home defense. It’s a smart approach -- specifically if you have to a Vivint smart home -- as your baby monitor will give you access to:

Clear video with night vision: Your security camera should have at minimum 1080p high-def video, and infrared LED technology for night vision.

2-way communications: Sometimes, you don't need to go inside the bedroom to soothe your newborn back to a restful state. A comforting word may be the only requirement to keep bundle of joy peaceful and resting.

Motion sensors: While it’s possible to have your monitoring device stay on constantly to carefully watch your newborn, your attention could start to lag. But if your security camera detects anything unusual, it can be programmed to send a text alert to your mobile device. This is helpful when the baby soundlessly scales over the crib or if a pet noses into the space.

Video recordings: The majority of baby monitors do not capture video footage. Today’s modern devices allow you to transmit a brief sample to grandparents to let them see what a peaceful, precious baby you have.

Mobile phone monitor: In lieu of carrying an external monitor wherever you go, you are now able to watch from your home security app. You can even check in on your child and sitter if you’re lucky enough to have an evening away.

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

The great part about using a security camera as a baby monitor in Yakima is that you can connect it to your additional smart home devices. As an illustration, if you see that your newborn is particularly restless, you can tweak your integrated thermostat from your smartphone app to increase the room’s comfort. Additionally, when they rouse for a late-night snack, you have the chance to slowly illuminate the room's smart bulbs to indicate you’re coming. And if you have two or more kids in unconnected areas, you could supply each one an indoor security camera and monitor the feeds in a unified cell phone application.
