    IP Cams / Surveillance Cameras at Home

    Has anyone installed them at home to keep an eye on the baby with the helper while you are away? If so, how well do you think these work? What is the most user-friendly system to install / use? Does any telco operator, eg PCCW, provide such service? Thanks!

    We have a couple different ones. One is a wireless cam that I bought in the computer center in Wan Chai. It basically plugs into your TV via RGB cables and has a wireless connection to the cam in the baby room. Receptions isn't great but it works.

    Another one we have is a Panasonic IP cam. Works pretty well when we are away.

    I got this message from the CAB

    "... visited a couple of trusted camera shops who advised that what you need is a pinhole camera like a webcam which can be obtained from computer shops. The shop manager Rico Leung of A & A Audio & Video Center Ltd in Pacific Place (Tel 2845 3670) [email protected] advised me that he has a colleague who owns a shop in Central which specialises in such items. The name of his colleague is: Kavlin Tel. 9492 0920. Unfortunately, when we tried to call Kavlin he was busy so I do not have the name of the shop.

    Another possible avenue may be to ask the advise of Security companies. The following came from our database:
    Interconic 2527 7478 Michael Chan [email protected]
    Rondish Co Ltd 2541 6685 [email protected]
    Security Systems Far East Ltd 2880 0622 www.securitysystems.hk <http://www.securitysystems.hk> "

    Hope it will be helpfull

    it is not just a matter of trust, I would love to be able to see what my child is doing at his daycare, and be able to look on the internet and see him. My daycare doesn't have that, but I know some daycares and preschools do. One of the things I missed most when I was working, was knowing all the things my child did that day. Even though they tell you some at the end of the day, it is not the same as being able to see for yourself.

    Looking at your child at daycare is of course not the same as spying on your maid, which is how I interpreted the original post.

    PCCW mobile Easy Watch

    PCCW mobile Easy Watch

    You may try this. There is no setup or installation.

    Just insert a SIM card. Make a video call. Then, you can watch your home.

    You can also PAN-TILT-ZOOM the camera.

    You can also record the video.
