Parents spend hundreds of dollars babyproofing a nursery as well as the rest of the home, and many still feel like they need to do more. This is the perfect opportunity to present the idea of nursery monitoring as part of a home security package. Here are a few ideas you can share with new or expectant parents.
Surveillance Cameras as a Baby Monitor
Being able to hear what is going on in a nursery is one thing, but to have video and audio should give parents real peace of mind. A parent may choose to have a baby monitor. Then if the baby makes a sound or starts crying, the parent can check the live feed to determine if there is a need to go and attend to the baby. Or the system can be set up to detect movement and then alert parents to check the monitor.
Motion and Door Sensors Provide Added Protection
What if the baby gets out of the crib somehow? Sensors on the crib and/or in the room can send an immediate alert to a parent before the child has a chance to go anywhere dangerous. The parents may also benefit from having the sensor automatically turn on cameras so that parents can see what is going on before even making it to the room.
Automated Lights Keep Nighttime Disruptions to a Minimum
Parents also know all too well the struggle of wandering around the house at 2 am to find everything the baby needs in order to get back to sleep. Automated lights can help a parent to make less of a ruckus when getting a bottle or while returning to the bedroom after the baby is asleep again.
These are just a few ways that you can encourage a new or expecting parent to see the value of a home monitoring system.
