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

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

In the process of assembling your baby’s room, you put together the cradle, covered the walls with a soft, lighter shade, and created a fully-stocked diaper-changing area. Now it's time to determine how you want to keep an eye on your newborn. You could go with the standard monitor that gives you the ability to listen in through an integrated speaker, or you can go high-tech and use high-definition video, two-way talk, and instant activation through motion detection.

The high-tech version is equivalent to the video surveillance incorporated in a complete home protection plan, but can you use a security camera as a baby monitor in Dallas? 

What do you want in a baby monitor in Dallas?

In previous generations of parenting, a baby monitor was really straightforward. You place a a device with a built-in microphone in close proximity to the crib, which sends audio signals to a walkie-talkie-looking receiver. Thankfully, baby monitors now offer many more features. For example, many monitors now offer HD video and two-direction communications. You can also hook many monitors to your home’s wireless signal so you may move around wherever you want. The top baby monitors in Dallas are so advanced that they are similar to indoor security cameras in both functionality and price.

Would you swap out a baby monitor with a home security camera?

Since baby monitors and surveillance systems have comparable functionality, you have quite a few parents in Dallas linking their child’s bedroom to their home security system. This approach is beneficial -- especially when using to a Vivint smart home -- as your baby monitor now has:

HD video with low-light capability: Your surveillance system should include 1080p HD resolution, and infrared functionality for acceptable viewing of darkened rooms.

Two-way talk: Now you don’t need to go inside the bedroom to quiet your baby back to a gentle slumber. Your calming voice might be the only requirement to keep bundle of joy asleep.

Motion sensors: Even though you can have your camera continuously keep a close eye on your child, your attention could diminish over time. But if your security camera identifies anything unusual, then you can get a text alert on your phone. This is helpful if your child quietly scrambles over the crib or when your family dog noses into the room.

Video recordings: The majority of baby monitors aren’t able to save video footage. You can now send a 20-second clip to a relative or family friend to allow them a glimpse of what a peaceful, precious baby you have.

Mobile phone monitor: Instead of carrying a separate device around, you can supervise your little one from your smart home mobile app. You can even check in on your young one and babysitter if you’re lucky enough to have a night out.

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

The great part about utilizing a security camera as a baby monitor in Dallas is that it can link to your other home automation and security components. As an illustration, if you observe that your newborn is struggling to sleep, you have the ability to tweak your integrated thermostat from the security app to increase the room’s comfort. In addition, as they wake up for a 2 a.m. bottle, you might gently raise the room's smart bulbs to indicate you will be there soon. If you by chance have multiple kids in unconnected areas, you have the ability to furnish each one a camera and monitor the video in the same mobile app.
