If you are a parent, then you understand the importance of taking the time to babyproof your home to provide a safe environment for your little ones. However, accidents can still happen, and it is estimated that approximately 10,000 children per day are still being rushed to emergency rooms for common household injuries.
However, there are a few steps you can take as a parent to help secure your home and child’s playroom to help ensure that they stay safe.
If your playroom has windows or doors, then you are already presented with a certain amount of risk. Children can fall out of a window, or they can leave the home through a door that is not being watched. There are alarms you can get that can help you monitor the windows and doors and will alert you if they are opened.
There are also audible alerts from a control panel that can show you exactly which door or window has been opened so you don’t have to guess at which area your child may be at the time of the alarm.
Most security systems also come equipped with mobile surveillance so even when you aren’t in the room in which your child is playing; you are still able to closely monitor their playtime and activities from a live feed on your mobile device.
You can also stream the live feed to a television, so you have a bigger picture of your child’s playroom. Just make sure that the camera is installed in an area that the child cannot reach and make sure it is placed, so you have a full and clear view of the entire room.
If you have to be at work and a nanny stays home with your child, then you can place a monitor in the playroom or their bedroom, so you can always monitor your child’s safety when you are not home. The cameras can be easily hidden, and you can record the footage to watch when you get home, or you can check in at any time on your mobile device.
Always make sure when using a nanny cam that you install it in a very inconspicuous area that will not alert the nanny to the camera. However, you will definitely want to check the state laws when it comes to unauthorized video recording in the home before you go through the process of installing and using your nanny cam.
Don’t let your child be a part of the 10,000 children a day statistic. Take the steps to actively secure a safe and comfortable environment for your child so that they are secure and protected. Having the ability and the convenience of being able to log in and monitor your child at any time can also help to ease your mind, especially when you are at work or are away from home.
