Peace of mind with KidCam

8 Dec


Days till Christmas

When you’re a parent to a child on the autism spectrum as well as an 8-year-old Diva & an active toddler of almost 2, you kinda wonder why god didn’t implant eyes in the back of your head!

With all three children having their own interest, you often find them dotted all over the house doing something or another.

Now, I know that children are entitled to their privacy, just like anyone else, but… and yes, this is a very “Big” but, there are some situations that require mummy’s watchful eye! OK, the Little man is totally safe when shut in his room playing lego or memorising bus destinations for hours on end. Alice-Sara can often be left to her own devices when off playing with her beloved Monsters High or off creating art in her bedroom but Harley is most certainly at the age that requires constant supervision and when the other two are together or of playing downstairs, they also need my watch over! Yes, in our house its pretty easy for things to turn from rosy to… Well, Bonkers, especially when Little man lashes out at his sister, he can really go for it, plus she don’t do half bad a detecting, then pushing his buttons!

Most parents will likely relate when I say it isn’t unusual for all hell to break loose when your back is turned as you try so desperately to engage in a little washing up or hovering in the next room. Seriously It’s risky business is that!

So… when this mum received the offer to review KidCam from Storage Options, it was one of those offers that are simply to dam good to refuse!

KidCam is truly awesome, you can use it as a baby monitoring system, put it in the car to keep an eye on them little monsters in the back seat, or even watch over them as they play in separate rooms (with its spilt screen function).

The KidCam consists of two small compact wireless cameras, wireless 4.3” (11 cm) companion screen, 2x home camera stands, 2x camera suction mounts, a home screen stand, 3x power adaptors/chargers plus instruction manual.

What I found fantastic about KidCam was it versatility! You can take it anywhere around the home, it’s so compact & extremely light weight, yet it does all it promises and more! Another top feature was the spilt screen, meaning you can watch two children playing in different areas at the one time (one in their bedroom, another in the garden)! The two wireless cameras transmit a crystal clear picture, plus sound, back to the wireless monitor giving you the parent total peace of mind all of the time.

The KidCam works for up to a 100 m range, which is why this system is designed for the home and garden (though it can be used in the car with the use of an additional adaptor)! You can carry the monitor around the home with you, wherever you go, no need to sit by a power point or panic when you need to dart of to use the bathroom.

The system also works well as a baby monitor or when introducing a child to their own bedroom for the very first time as the KidCam is fully equipped with night-vision. Since I’ve received the KidCam, I’m able to work at my desk without the constant need to get up and find out why the children are so quite (we all know when kids are too quite, this usually means trouble)! I’m also the type of mother who will go and check on my sleeping tribe a million and one times, giving them a poke to make such they move (nightmare mother, I know)!

Now, I don’t want my house turning into some “Big Brother house” but sometimes I am busy and stuff doesn’t do itself, so the KidCam provides me with a way to get the dishes done or hover the hallway without having to worry. KidCam gives me total reassurance if and when I need it, day & night or just here and there, whatever suits me, that’s the beauty of it!

So… There you have it… the KidCam is compact, small, light, versatile, attractive, reliable and offers a parent like me loads of reassurance.

This baby has it all… it has all that of the above, plus its easy & quick to set-up.

I really wasn’t disappointed with KidCam! Would I recommend it? Most defiantly I would!

Priced at £160 we’re not talking cheap, but you really do get what you pay for and this is pure quality.

The KidCam is available now from Storage Options

Disclosure: I received a KidCam for the purpose of this review.

    This looks like a terrific invention. I agree it makes doing household chores a breeze.

    i cant decide what i think of this – quite expensive but can see how it could offer reassurance!

    Wow – what a fab idea. Not seen one before. A great addition to “eyes in the back of my head” lol

    We don’t have any camera at home, but this seems great! I might need one once we have our next baby!🙂

    I think this is fantastic. Having the 2 cameras will would be a great benefit. Saves moving around. I have 2 girls 3 & 20 mths and they are everywhere. Nice to just keep an eye on things without being to involved all the time

    A excellent idea. Sometimes you have to get on with things, whilst still keeping an eye on the kids and this fits the bill. It also helps to build up a degree of independence where children can be ‘left alone’ to play for short periods of time (which is important) while they are actually being supervised unobtrusively nearby.

    What a great idea, as a mum of three I totally understand how hard it is to keep up with the household chores while trying to keep an eye on my little terrors.
