Homesight Monitoring Systems Make Safeguarding Your Child Easy

By: Eli Minatore
In the past, families often reliedon home-taping systems. Instead, Smith encourages real-time viewing technology,such as the Homesight system from Xanboo. ?

“We’ve never endorsed a video-taping situation because we don’t believe thatchildren should be put in harm’s way until Mom or Dad get home," says Smith. Inother words, the goal shouldn’t be to catch a nanny in the act.?

Instead, Smith urges the use of real-time systems that are out in the open.Just like professionals in other industries, she notes, most nannies arecomfortable with being monitored -- as long as they know about it. As one nannyremarked, “By being open to nanny candidates about the home monitoring system,it will freak out the bad apples and please the professionals." ?

The easy-to-install Homesight system provides users with real-time videofeeds from their computer, cell phone, or PDA. In addition to helping parentsmonitor a childcare provider, the Homesight system helps users keep an eye onpets or teens. “It’s also a great way for families to stay connected while Momor Dad is away on business," Smith says.

Homesight video feeds are 100% secure. While most wireless video camerassend signals to a nearby base station, making them vulnerable to interceptionFind Article,the Homesight system sends its feeds via power lines directly around the home.
