My mom experienced a stroke. The moment I received the doctors approval to take her home a friend recommended to consider surveillance. I was somewhat uneasy thinking about home camera security equipment but possibly Dana had a point.
While too many older people are getting mistreated today I was going to leave my mother alone along with a caregiver as I went to work. I required a covert video camera one which appeared just like any other household item in order that anybody taking care of my mommy would act normally.
Nanny cams would look out of place so instead I settled on one which posed as an electrical outlet/adapter. It got an integrated DVR which meant I didnt need to install any kind of software to be able to record videos.
It is practically plug and play. I only plug the SD card and then plug the whole thing to a working electrical outlet and it is ready to go. Needless to say it doesnt work as an actual outlet.
To be able to look at the video Im able to just insert the SD card on my laptop and view the video footage in MPEG4 format.
I put my mommy in my daughters room. My daughter is already married. Immediately after taking out the vanity dresser the electrical outlet for the hair dryer became exposed. This was a bit higher up compared to a outlets and was ideal for setting up the DVR electrical outlet hidden camera.
This spy camera had an 8GB SD card which was enough since it has motion-activated recording. In case my mother is sleeping this is going to simply stop recording and begin once more as soon as it detects activity. I can even block the lower part of the viewing range to be able to ignore any movement coming from that area. This feature is known as motion detection area masking.
The first few care providers I employed were just incompetent. They slept when mother slept at times longer. It required a number of tries just before I found the ideal caregiver and I could not have done that in case I had not installed any home camera security beforehand.
