10 Best Nanny Cameras For Child Safety

10 Best Nanny Cameras For Child Safety

Just a few months into the new phase of parenthood and you are craving for a break. As much as you want to enjoy and relax in the bliss of “Me time”, you also can’t break free of the constant worry and guilt of leaving your baby. Sure, the nanny is there and you are satisfied. But your parental instinct needs more assurance.

Like with everything, technology has successfully solved this problem of yours as well. Now, you can keep a check on the baby through the best indoor security cameras. You can allow access to these cameras for your nannies as well so that they can be more vigilant and take care of the baby in the best way.

Our recommended products consist of the best nanny cameras available in the market that will not let you down. 

Why Trust Us

Nightvision, being able to connect to Alexa, video recordability, and the ability to be remotely controlled anywhere are qualities of the best indoor security cameras we’ve selected. These are designed to give working parents peace of mind when they leave their precious little ones to the hands of the babysitters.

While some of the baby monitors have made it to the Amazon Best Sellers list, some have been covered by respected technology websites, such as Safety, Safewise, and Verywellfamily.com. 

1. WYZE Camera

    In the market for a cheap and quality indoor camera? One big contender is the Wyze Camera. The camera provides a video feed in 1080P and full HD. It also provides great details of its surroundings up to 30 feet. It even sends notifications to your phone when it senses movement and sounds.

    The biggest issue with this camera is that the company, Wyze, doesn’t ship to Canada. You can still get it through Amazon. However, Canadians aren’t able to get warranties from Wyze specifically should you run into an issue.

    2. BLINK Camera

      Blink is another brand that creates baby monitors that’s worth considering. Their indoor security cameras provide motion detection, easy installation, and offers video monitoring in real-time. The biggest perk is that the device is wireless so you don’t need to wire your house for this to work.

      One of the glaring issues with this camera though is that it’s on a fixed spot. You’re unable to rotate it or move it around. Furthermore, when it’s recording, it enables a light that can be disruptive to your little one’s sleep.

      3. NEST Camera

        For a tiny camera, you can turn to Google’s Nest Camera. Considering its size, it could pass as a hidden camera too. Like other cameras, it covers 24/7 video monitoring, notifications on movement, and it’s easy to put together. 

        Some other perks beyond that are the 8 high-powered infrared LEDs to provide good monitoring in dark spots. It’s versatile in its positioning as well. Due to its magnetic base, it can be placed on a shelf or other surface or mounted on a wall.

        The only snag that people have run into is that the video is connected to a subscription service. You’re given a 30-day free trial and the video is top-notch. However, it’s another expense that can be avoided.

        4. RING Security Camera

          Another contender for the best nanny camera is developed by Ring. Ring’s brand of security camera systems is for people who are looking for compact cameras and flexibility with them. Similar to Google’s Nest camera, it’s small and can be mounted just about anywhere. The other perk of this surveillance camera is that you’re able to speak through the camera using your phone, tablet, and even your computer.

          The only kind of rub with this system is this too has a subscription service to it. The free trial lasts up to 60 days which is better, but it’d be better if they removed the subscription service entirely. Also, while the camera can integrate with Alexa, it has issues with integrating with other Ring branded security products.

          5. CANARY Camera

            Canary is a brand built on giving you peace of mind with its canary view cameras – pun intended. One of the biggest advantages of purchasing this cam is you get access to one-touch emergency services. With a press of a button, you can contact either the local police, fire, and EMT. It’s a nifty security system

            Canary offers a good number of benefits, however, what it lacks is a customer support system. The other cameras to this point have customer service but Canary has decided to not have any. Not even online support. So if you run into issues, you may find yourself having to Google your problem and hope someone had a similar issue with their camera.

            6. VAVA Camera

              Vava is all about products that are smart and made simple. They offer a good indoor surveillance system in this particular camera. After all, they specifically made these nanny cams to serve as solid monitoring systems.

              The unique point of this particular product is that Vava provides a separate monitor for viewing. It removes the need of having an app on your phone like the others that require you to have it.

              That, however, comes with its drawbacks. For one, you’ll need to supply your own batteries for the said monitor. Also, the monitor provides 720P which is lower quality than other cameras on the market. Still viewable, but not as crisp when you compare it to others.

              7. WANSVIEW Camera

                For a cheap spy camera, consider Wansview’s. For its cheap price, it provides a lot of quality and good features. Records in 1080P, multiple individuals can access the feed at any given time, and the video it provides is encrypted making it the most secure feed for people’s privacy.

                The only rub with this camera is that the app isn’t the most intuitive as others. Furthermore, you may run into issues if you switch outlets for this camera as some customers ran into connection issues when switching outlets for the camera.

                8. NOOIE Camera

                  Nooie is about keeping people close with their cameras while not sacrificing design either. Like others on this list, it boasts 1080P HD recording, two-way audio, motion and soundtracking, and an alert system.

                  The few drawbacks that it has is when viewing the video feed, you’re not able to go back to a specific point in time. If you want to see a specific part, you’ll need to see the entire feed to get to that spot. You’re also locked from viewing the feed beyond the app that you get on your phone.

                  9. VICTURE Camera

                    You don’t need video surveillance installation services for this small camera from Victure. This small camera is another contender for best nanny cameras in that it provides encrypted video and provides a broader view than other cameras of this type.

                    Advertising

                    That being said, the camera doesn’t offer a playback feature for free. It’s barred by a subscription service. It also lacks a few other things compared to others such as the ability to connect to Alexa.

                    10. CONICO Camera

                      The final of the best nanny cameras on the market to cover is Conico’s brand. This one has the best of both worlds in that it’s small and is wireless too. It also provides the same kind of features as a lot of the other cameras on this list.

                      Some of the criticisms for this camera though is that sometimes it can get “stuck” in one place and requires you to adjust the camera. Furthermore, the option to delete videos is cumbersome if you record a lot over the course of the day.

                      Final Thoughts

                      These are some of the best nanny cameras around you can get. All in all, they provide tremendous quality in video and some of their unique features. If you can make it work with the lack of some small qualities of life aspects, you have yourself a great product to give you peace of mind.
