Can I use a security camera as a baby monitor in Santa Fe?

In the process of assembling your child’s first room, you carefully followed steps to build the crib, covered the walls with a delicate, lighter hue, and established the greatest diaper changing space ever. You’re now ready to decide the way you intend to watch over your precious one. You might go with the standard monitoring choice that gives you the ability to listen in on a separate listening device, or you could go high-tech and utilize high-def video feeds, two-way talk, and instant activation through motion detection.

The higher tech alternative kind of sounds like surveillance systems incorporated in a comprehensive home security system, but would you use a security camera as a baby monitor in Santa Fe? 

What features do you need in a baby monitor in Santa Fe?

In previous generations of parenting, a baby monitor was pretty simple. You place a component with a microphone in close contact to your child’s bed, which transmits an audio feed to a walkie-talkie-looking receiver. Fortunately, baby monitors now have more options. To illustrate, many monitors now offer clear HD video capability and two-way talk. You can also hook your monitors to Wi-Fi so you may move around throughout your home. The latest baby monitors in Santa Fe are so advanced that they are similar to indoor security cameras in both features and expense.

Can you swap out a baby monitor with an integrated surveillance system?

Since baby monitors and surveillance systems have comparable functionality, there are numerous residents in Santa Fe integrating their nursery to their overall home defense. So it makes sense -- especially if you have to a Vivint smart home -- as your baby monitor now has:

HD video with low-light capability: Your security camera should include 1080p high-def video, and infrared LED technology for night vision.

2-way communications: You won’t always have to go into the room to get your newborn back to a gentle slumber. Your reassuring words may be the only requirement to keep your little one asleep.

Motion activation: Even though it’s possible to have your camera stay on constantly to watch your baby sleep, your attentiveness may begin to waver. Conversely, if your security camera notices anything unusual, you can configure it to deliver a notification on your phone. Perfect if your child soundlessly scales out of the crib or if your curious cat noses into the nursery.

Save and send recordings: The majority of baby monitors do not capture the video. Now you have the ability to deliver a 20-second clip to a relative or family friend to show them what a beautiful sleeping baby you have.

Smartphone access: Instead of carrying monitoring equipment wherever you go, you may now watch from your smart home mobile app. You can even say hello to your young one and babysitter if you’re able to get an evening away.

A security camera baby monitor can be part of your smart home installation

The nice thing about implementing a security camera as a baby monitor in Santa Fe is that it will work in unison with your additional home security and home automation components. As an illustration, if you notice that your little one is having trouble falling asleep, you have the ability to make adjustments to your smart thermostat from mobile security application to increase the room’s comfort. Or when they wake up for their midnight feeding, you might slowly illuminate the room's smart bulbs to show you will be there soon. And if you have two or more babies in separate spaces, you have the ability to furnish each one a security camera and monitor the video in a unified mobile app.
