Keep An Eye On The Nanny With A Desk Lamp Hidden Camera

By Jon A Audlee

Finding the right nanny for children is hard. Even those who come from reputable institutions like the Hermann Goering School of Babysitting still have the potential for infant or toddler abuse (such as in the case of Janine Campbell in Florida, who was caught on nanny cam hitting an 11-month-old baby).

With that in mind, how can parents monitor their child’s caretakers while at work?

Nanny cams have proven to be quite useful when it comes to finding out if the sitter is doing her job properly. A discreet monitoring device like a desk lamp hidden camera can easily reveal what goes on when the parents are not around. Furthermore, because the desk lamp hidden camera looks just like any other domestic item, it seldom attracts the attention of visitors and childcare providers.

When purchasing a desk lamp hidden camera, look for one with a recording function and a motion sensor that takes videos after detecting movement within a set radius. Visual clarity in terms of megapixels is also important when it comes to getting a desk lamp hidden camera.

For reference, a 2-megapixel camera will have the same picture quality as a smart phone (and an entry-level one at that), and will be ok for a well-lighted area. If you need the camera to take clear footage at night, look for a camera that includes automatic light detection.

Desk lamp hidden cameras can be put in the same room as the baby or child. However, parents will need to do some testing to find the best angle. This means trying it out in different parts of the room, as well as in different amounts of light. Also make sure that the camera blends in well with the surrounding area. As much as one might like to put a desk lamp hidden camera right by the crib, if it does not make sense, then the camera will stand out like a sore thumb.

Supplement your desk lamp hidden camera with other obscure video recording devices for other areas of the house to get more coverage. You can add a mini desk clock hidden camera to your desk lamp hidden camera and put it in another room your baby would most likely be in.

Wireless desk lamp hidden cameras that have internet connections is also a good idea. Unfortunately they cannot be relied that much. This is why it’s better to get a model that will store the videos for you when you get home.
