Since Nanny Cam enables you to monitor the quality of service or, more appropriately, care your Nanny is giving your ward(s) while you are away from home, it is necessary if not compulsory for you to have Nanny Cam installed in your house. Before you purchase the camera, there are five important things you should put into consideration. These will guide you towards getting the right product that will serve you just the way you want to be served.
(1) THE BATTERY DURATION
While surfing the net for a Nanny Cam, you should give due consideration to the battery life of the camera. Since the camera will be assigned with the responsibility of spying on the services of your caregiver, you will need a cam that can do recording on its own for hours, without connecting it to a power source. Brand like Rhea HD 720p that is designed to last for 30 hours will do just fine in this regard.
(2) MEMORY SIZE/STORAGE CAPABILITY
Another important thing you should consider before you purchase the Nanny Cam is the size of the Memory of the Cam. Needless to say, there are tons of nanny cams out there in the market. On the recording strength, for instance, there are some that can record 40 minutes per 1GB, while some have the capacity to record 60mins on the same 1GB. There are some that are built to take 130mins per 1GB. In the sphere of storage capacity, the nanny cams differ. For example, 1080p HD Nanny Cam Table Clock can store up to 11 hours of video on 32GB card; on the same memory size, zFrameDVR-1000(Rhea HD 720p Nanny Cam) can only store 5 hours. If you’re the type that often stays away for a long time, you should go for the one that has big storage capacity.
(3) COMPATIBILITY WITH PHONES and MOTION ALERT FEATURES

These phones are popular and yours can’t be out of this list. The phone will serve as your monitor as you will be able to capture all the happenings in your house live anywhere you are. An icing on this cake will be the cam that also has motion detection phone alerts. It will be a daunting task for you to stay glued to your phone all day with the intent of getting a firsthand view of the occurrence in your home. The nanny cam that comes with this feature will beep you once it notices movement its reach. Kois 1080p Wifi Nanny Cam offers these features.
Another thing worthy of consideration is the camera lens. The camera lens comes in two forms: CMOS and CCD. If the real intent of purchasing the cam is to monitor the activities of your nanny as well as other house servants, it is important you keep them in dark about its existence. One of the ways to ensure this is to go for the nanny cam that is designed with the low-light sensor, as the opposite of it may easily draw suspicions. If you buy into this, Phoibe HD 1080p which has Low-Light CMOS Sensor fits the bill.
(5) VIEWING ANGLES
In the spheres of viewing angle, the nanny camera offers variety. Some have 900 angle lens, some 720, some 780 while the largest is 1800. If the house is relatively big and wide, for effectively capturing, the cam with 1800 will do just fine. On the other hand, if your house is small or not so large, 900 720 or 780 viewing angle cam will do the work.
