Nanny Cam Delivers Police Footage
In-home security is an exceptional tool to maintain the safety of your home, loved ones, and belongings when elsewhere, yet in some cases the benefits of in-home surveillance come in scenarios that no one ever imagines will take place in their own house. Beyond the traditional advantages of hidden cameras – namely assurance that child care workers are behaving properly or peace of mind while out of town, in some cases the installation of hidden cameras have been the only tool to ensure justice being served. In the picturesque Manhattan suburb of Millburn, New Jersey, a “nanny cam” was the tool used by police to catch a violent criminal after a horrific home invasion was caught on tape. Just moments after the tape captures the last moments a father has with his young children before heading to work, the scene changes in a moment to a mother being violently beaten in from of her children by a home invader. Police used the footage to gain information on the criminal and bring peace of mind to the family and justice to the community.
While this type of incident seldom runs through the minds of customers, the secrecy, clarity, and accessibility of the footage contained allows for uses beyond the usual domestic rationale for installation.
