Can I use a security camera as a baby monitor?

Can I use a security camera as a baby monitor?

In the process of assembling your baby’s room, you built the crib, painted the walls a soothing pastel, and created the ultimate diaper changing station. You’re now ready to figure out the way you're going to watch your baby sleep. You could go with the typical monitor that allows you to supervise on a separate listening device, or you can go high-tech and utilize HD video, two-direction communications, and activation motion detection.

The higher-tech alternative may make you think of surveillance systems found in a comprehensive home security system, but should you use a security camera as a baby monitor? 

Your security camera baby monitor may be part of your integrated smart home plan

One important benefit of using a security camera as a baby monitor is that it can link to your other smart home devices. As an illustration, if you see that your baby is particularly restless, you are able to adjust your integrated thermostat from your smartphone app to make it more comfortable. Or when they awaken for a late-night snack, you might gently raise the room's smart bulbs to show that you're on your way. If you by chance have at least two kids in unconnected areas, you have the ability to supply each one an indoor security camera and monitor the images in a single cell phone application.

An indoor security camera is a key component of your comprehensive home defense plan
