Hidden Nanny Cam's are used by parents to watch their children's.

Jul 29, 2008
Nowadays, many parents are considering using hidden in-home surveillance devices to watch how their child's caregiver works in their absence. The Counter Spy Shops, an international retail chain, reports a 25% increase just over a span of past five years in the sales of these spy camcorders-often called as "nanny cams." Hidden cameras or nanny cams are increasingly gaining popularity because of their proven effectiveness in identifying abusive nannies. With a nanny cam in place, parents know for sure how their children are actually being taken care of. These hidden cameras have helped many people catch abusive nannies who otherwise left unmonitored, would have continued to abuse or neglect the children.

Without a nanny cam in place, parents will probably never know for sure that their children are actually well taken care of by the nanny or babysitter hired for the purpose. Nanny cameras have helped several parents catch abusive nannies that otherwise would have continued to abuse or neglect their children. Nanny cameras are compact cameras that are concealable in household items like lamps, books, or even teddy bears. The teddy bear nanny cam is one of the most popular spy cams as teddy bears are popular among kids.

However, since the keeping of a nanny and trusting the child to her care is not merely a technical dealing but is based on mutual trust, love and respect, many people find the use of nanny cams as an act of deception, invasion of privacy and a waste of money. Also nanny cams pose a greater threat to home security particularly, if the agency is using camcorders, since the house lay out then, is open to public scrutiny. Over 30 different styles of pre-hidden nanny cameras are available in the market and one can choose according to the specific needs of taping time, budget and placing requirements.

Most of these are however, wireless and can be hidden in almost any type of household item from a plant to a stuffed animal. Other added advantages and features include being compact to go undetected, recording in color, automatically adaptive mode for "night vision" and being waterproof. Other cams are automatically equipped for CCTV Software for USB CamEz-Setup, Motion Detect, Disk Store Email Send, FTP, and HTTP. Their simple plug and play setup lets you record on any VCR or a CCTV recorder for a maximum of up to 10 hours in one go using a 10 Hour VHS Tape.

While media stories have primarily focused on potential abuse and neglect being reasons why parents should consider using a nanny cam, some sitters have indicated a camera can provide a positive connection with the families while at work. Also, more and more daycare centers are installing cameras and even provide parents with the ability to spot check and watch their child while at work. Also spy videotaping with voice is not legal everywhere and the legal implications before installing any nanny cam must be considered.
