The Best Nanny Cams – May 2019

Posted by Nick First Published: Verified & Updated:

The home security revolution is finally upon us. Whether you’re trying to safeguard that vintage Star Wars collectable item or want to keep an eye on your babysitter’s interactions with your child while you’re away, there are now a series of affordable camera systems (many of which are wireless) that allow you to keep tabs on every room in the house whether you’re there or not. 

This didn’t used to be the case, of course. Up until relatively recently, home security systems were crafted by simple sensor units that could only detect movement—meaning homeowners only really had the ability to know whether or not an intruder had broken into their abode. 

This limited technology meant that a thief could theoretically break into your home, grab as much as he or she could hold, and flee before any kind of significant action was taken by either the homeowner or the police. 

And while the latest home security systems don’t offer a silver bullet when it comes to deterring and catching these nefarious intruders, they make it much easier to identify them in the future. 

These systems also work surprisingly well when it comes to less dire types of monitoring—for instance if you want to keep an eye on your pet while you’re at work, or you enjoy communicating with your family members via an embedded microphone in the camera’s base. 

To celebrate these new technologies, we’ve compiled a list of the best and most innovative “nanny cams” money can buy. It should be noted, however, that these cameras differ from their closely related but far more clandestine “hidden camera” brethren, in that they can often be seen by anyone who happens to be in the same room. 

Stay tuned for a separate list of the best hidden cameras, which are almost exclusively used to catch people doing bad things in your home.
