Top 3 Security Camera System for Daycare Center

Top 3 Security Camera System for Daycare Center

Because daycares are responsible for people's children a dependable security camera system is a must. The new wireless camera systems can be just what you need to keep an eye on your center and archiving video to review at a later date.

Improved camera technology and faster WIFI router speeds has made purchasing and installing a security system in your daycare much easier. Larger hard drives allow you to record up to 90 days of 24 hour of high quality HD video. New wireless surveillance camera system allows you to view live video in your office or remotely on your phone. 

Keep in mind that the word "wireless" refers to the fact that cameras do not need to connect to the base via a wire. The cameras themselves will need to be plugged into power outlets. The recording base will also need to hard wired to your WIFI router.Systems are available with battery operated cameras but from my research these systems have operating issues.  

Top Security Camera Features

  • Expandable to 8 plus cameras
  • 1080P 2MP Camera Resolution
  • Minimum of 1TB Hard Drive
  • Night Vision (Helpful for nap time & over night childcare)

This security system adds a few additional innovations that may work well in your daycare. Each camera has bright floodlights, a siren alarm and two-way communication. This would allow you to quickly talk to the teacher in the classroom. The wireless security camera system is an all in one video recorder equipped 16 inch IPS (In-Plane Switching) monitor. This will save you on needing to purchase a monitor. The con would be that if the monitor stops working you may need to purchase a new system.

About Alexis Sferra

Alexis Sferra has been working with children for over 14 years in many different ways. She started when she was younger, babysitting for children around the neighborhood. As she got older, she continued her work into overnight nannying for a few years in high school. At that point, she had to learn a few new skills. Making sure the kids were put to bed on time, had dinner, and cleaned up once the children were in bed. After school, she went straight into being a private nanny for many years. After college, she started a job at a local in-home daycare where she could help care for many more children but still, on a personal level, you get with nannying. After that, Alexis worked as an assistant director at a 24-hour daycare center. There Alexis had to combine all her skills of overnight sitting, parent communication, personalization, and caring for the children. While also learning new ones such as keeping the records up to date, going through inspections, managing a team of staff members, ensuring all rules and regulations were being followed, as well as payroll duties.
