When it comes to owning a home, we all want our homes and belongings to be well-protected. For those of us who have pets, children, or older relatives, we especially want our loved ones to remain safe while we’re out at work or on vacation. Home alarm systems and fences can aid in protection against home invasions, but what if you’ve just had a baby and hired a new nanny?

For all you concerned parents out there, we recommend getting a nanny cam. Nanny cams are small devices that record footage of what happens in your home. If you’re looking to obtain some footage in a more discreet way, however, many nanny cams are also disguised as objects (i.e. an alarm clock) that won’t go detected by the nanny (and scare them away…).

As we said, nanny cams can either come in the appearance of a normal, small camera or in the appearance of an object, thus making your decision a bit complicated. Nanny cams come in different sizes and shapes (go figure), and come with different features. Luckily, we’re here to help. Take a look at our list of some of the best nanny cams out there for you to get!
