Though many parents wish they could be with their kids all the time, it's inevitable that at some point parents will have to leave kids under the care of someone else. With even the most trusted individuals watching their kids, some parents are still curious about the behavior of both the nanny and their kids while they are away. Wireless nanny cams can provide parents with an innovative way to keep an eye on what's going on at home when their children are under the care of a nanny or babysitter.

Ability to Blend In

Good wireless nanny cams are disguised as common household items including clocks, fans and books. Different manufacturers supply families with wireless nanny cams in a variety of shapes and sizes. Parents should try to purchase a wireless nanny cam that will best blend in with their home décor. For instance, a family that loves nature and plants might use a flower pot nanny cam, while a family with children with asthma could include a wireless nanny cam disguised as an air purifier.

Optimal Placement

Wireless nanny cams allow parents to capture video in numerous places throughout the house. Since hiding wires is a non-issue, nanny cams can be mounted or placed on nearly any wall or surface. The best wireless nanny cams allow for a maximum distance of 25 to 50 feet between the camera and the receiver. As long as the receiver is hidden, good wireless nanny cams give parents a fair amount of freedom in placement.
