Your new nursery is almost ready for your precious little one. You dedicated quite a bit of time building the cradle, covering the walls, and arranging the changing station.You even hung a shelf with a line of cuddly toys as a an extra touch. But how are you going to monitor your newborn? You can go the traditional route with a basic listening device or take it a step further and employ the video cameras available to you in your modern home security system.

Although it may seem a bit unexpected to use an indoor camera for a baby monitor in Napa, it’s a great choice when you consider the many perks.

Your security system’s indoor cameras in Napa are great baby monitors

Above all else, your indoor cameras are part of your comprehensive smart home and reachable via an easy-to-use home security app. This offers you convenience and peace of mind as you are able to check in on your baby from anyplace via your smartphone or portable device. Here are some more reasons why they are an excellent choice:

  • Live high-def video footage: You’ll get detailed, high-quality video of your baby. You can even review recorded clips straight from your phone.
  • Two-way talk: You’ll not only hear the sounds from the room, you can actually talk to your loved one straight through your indoor camera. This is a beneficial tool to soothe a troubled sleeper. In addition, you can use the audio feature via your smartphone app, regardless of your location.
  • Wide-angle viewing: Your video cameras will have a wider viewing angle than standard baby monitors. You’ll see everything.
  • Motion-sensing with updates: If your baby decides nap time is done and wishes to get out of the crib, you are able to get motion-triggered updates sent right to your phone.
  • One-press call-outs: Although this benefit is typically for older offspring, it’s worth bringing up. With a simple press of a button, your child can touch base with you through the app on your smartphone.

Having your comprehensive smart home right in a smartphone app is a fantastic bonus. If you notice that your newborn is struggling to sleep and believe it might be a tad uncomfortable in the room, you are able to adjust the settings on your smart thermostat. When they awaken, you can switch on the nursery’s smart lights to notify them you’ll be there soon. Have more than one child? You can integrate another indoor camera and get access to each of them with a lone home security app.
