Best Home Care Cameras in San Diego

Saturday, March 17th, 2018 6:58 pm | by San Diego Home Caregivers

For helping seniors in a home care setting in San Diego, there are lot of great new monitoring cameras out now that can help families keep a watchful eye on an elderly parent from afar, but just make sure it’s OK with your parents first😊 If you have caregivers in place here in San Diego, it’s very helpful to get perspective on the daily home care routine as well as peace of mind regarding their security while others are in charge of their care. Many seniors do not like Big Brother in their house, but there are situations where placement of cameras or sensor monitors can make families work better together when home care is in place. Home Care Video Monitoring Technology has really improved over the last few years and the costs have come way down. Video monitoring/surveillance cameras have become very popular for monitoring an elder loved one who lives alone or are with caregivers. Most cameras require home Wi-Fi. Current devices all provide wide-view angles, HD quality video, night vision, built-in motion and sound detection that can notify you when something is happening, and two-way audio that lets you talk and listen to caregivers and your loved one. Cameras also come with AI software that can “learn” from repetitive behavior in their home and will alert you only when there is unusual behavior. They also offer a video recording option (usually for an extra fee) that saves past video to the cloud, so you can rewind and review what you missed. All come with a basic plan and then monthly subscription plans for around $100 per year where you can fine tune automatic recording. Below are some of the best options: Amazon Cloud Cam: https://www.amazon.com/Introducing-Amazon-Cloud-Cam/dp/B01C4UY0JK/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1518028988&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=security+camera&psc=1 ARLO: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QH0Q8J4/ref=ODS_PE_btf_lnch_2017_comp2 NEST CAM Indoor: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00WBJGUA2/ref=ODS_PE_btf_lnch_2017_comp1 Home Care Sensor Monitoring If your parents are uncomfortable with video monitoring, and don’t want you to be able to peek in on them whenever you want, another less invasive option to consider is a “sensor” monitoring system. These systems use small wireless sensors (not cameras) placed in key areas of your parent’s home that can detect changes in her activity patterns, and will notify you via text message, email or phone call if something out of the ordinary is happening. This is also helpful on unusual behavior regarding the daily routine of a caregiver in a home care setting. A great company that offers this technology is Silver Mother, which provides small sensors that you attach to commonly used household objects like her pillbox, refrigerator door, TV remote, front door, etc. For example, if your parents don’t pick up their pillbox to get their medicine or don’t open the refrigerator door to make breakfast like they usually do, or if they left the house at a peculiar time you would be notified and could check on them. You can also check up on them anytime you want online or through their mobile app. You can visit their site at: https://sen.se/store/silvermother/. Home care in San Diego with video and sensor monitoring in place can be a great way for kids out of state to stay connected to their parents' routine with their caregivers. We hope this short article on some of the options proved helpful for you and your family here in San Diego.
