Some parents consider the advent of wifi cameras that are easy and inexpensive to mount in the home a godsend in their eternal quest to keep an eye on their children while at home or out in the yard. Other parents see wifi cameras as a definite invasion of personal privacy for their children and won’t have anything to do with them. Whether you are anxious to have visual access to your kids at all times while they’re home or are dead set against ‘spying’ on them, there’s no doubt that wifi cameras in the home are here to stay. A simple 3 camera system on Amazon, that links to smartphones so parents can monitor the cameras from anywhere they go, costs less than a hundred dollars. This is a trend that’s here to stay, no doubt about it.
Experts suggest that if you have a three camera system going, you should make sure that two of them cover the living room and the backyard — studies show that is where children up to the age of 15 spend most of their time when at home.
Surprisingly, the third camera should be placed in the garage, especially if you have teenagers at home. Once again, the statistics show that older children tend to go into the garage for clandestine activities such as tobacco and alcohol use. It’s also a good idea to keep a video on your vehicles in case of theft — insurance companies may insist on it for full coverage.
