The top most priority for any parent is the safety and well-being of the child whether they are present or not. In the past there was no way of fully guaranteeing the safety and well-being of your child when you had left them at home with the nanny especially if they were young and could not express themselves so as to notify you if anything went wrong To make matters worse, this would be particularly stressful for a parent who has a child with a condition that needs constant monitoring such as a diabetic child who needs regular insulin shots. ‘Seeing is believing’ really comes to life with the use of a Nanny Cam as you can monitor the caregiver when he/she is with your children. The knowledge that their boss is or could be watching them is an effective way to ensure a Nanny stays in line. We all know of sad stories on the news about nannies that take advantage of the absence of parents and abuse a child or are negligent to the point where a child burnt himself or herself, almost drowned in the tub or pool, run off into oncoming traffic or injured themselves fatally when the nanny was supposed to be watching them.
A Nanny Cam can also be used for your elderly parents in ensuring their well-being whether or not they have a nurse present. You can easily keep tabs on them by checking the footage every now and then just make sure they are safe. This can really ease your tension if you have a sickly elderly loved one and you’re concerned that they may slip and fall or get into a minor accident while within the house when you are not present. With a nanny Cam you will be alerted in the event of anything giving you the opportunity to send help as soon as possible or rush home as fast as you can in order to help them bearing in mind that a first response means a quicker recovery process. A Nanny Cam is also extremely helpful when it comes to keeping communication lines open between you and an elderly loved one especially if they are struggling alone with something in the house.
A nanny Cam is extremely essential at night when you need to keep checking on your children or elderly loved ones but do not want to startle them or wake them up by your movement from your own bedroom to theirs and back. This is even more significant if your child or elderly parent is sickly and has a condition that needs to be constantly monitored such as asthma.
