Should You Get a Nanny Cam? February 6, 2018

Should You Get a Nanny Cam?, Fairfield, Ohio

As a parent, your top priority is the safety and well-being of your child, so it’s normal to worry about how your child’s babysitter or nanny treats your little one when you’re not around. If you have a very young child who can’t talk or express themselves fully yet, you may have considered installing a nanny cam to monitor your caregiver, but you may have questions about whether it’s a good idea—ethically and legally—to do so. Lil’ Angels In-Home Nanny Care provides comprehensive child care services to the Greater Cincinnati, OH, area, and they offer some insight to help you determine if a nanny cam is right for you.

A Guide to Nanny Cams

Are Nanny Cams Legal?

You have the legal right to video record activities in your own home, even if done secretly and without the consent of the other person. However, you are not allowed to videotape people in private areas, such as bathrooms or the personal bedroom of a live-in caregiver. Some states have laws against undisclosed audio recordings, but Ohio and Kentucky allow you to record audio as well as video without notifying the other party.

What Are the Benefits? babysitter-Cincinnati-Ohio

A nanny cam helps ensure your child’s safety and provides peace of mind. You can see for yourself that the babysitter is being vigilant and responsible. You can also observe your child’s daily routine, and if anything concerns you, you can ask your caregiver to change how they’re doing things. For example, if your child is watching too much TV or not being set down for naps at a consistent time, you can bring it up with your nanny and find a solution together. Also, if you’re a working parent, you might be worried about missing milestones of early child development. A camera will capture those first attempts at walking or talking and give you a window into their daily growth.

What Are the Risks?

If you’re not upfront with your nanny about your video recording, you risk losing their trust should they find out about it later. Some may even feel betrayed and quit. Instead, talk with them before installing a camera or even bring it up during an interview. The more honest you are about your concerns and intentions for the camera, the better your relationship will be.

Whether you’re looking for a full-time nanny or part-time babysitting services, Lil’ Angels In-Home Nanny Care provides compassionate child care providers you can trust. As strong advocates for your child’s safety, they provide every family with three nanny cams that you can view through your smartphone.
