But you can have this peace of mind for a price… a reasonable one.
Setting up a Panasonic KX-HN6002W Home Monitoring System is not only pain-free and easy, but it’s $300 well spent.
The whole system sets up in less than 20 minutes. The first step is to connect the base to your home’s Wi-Fi, then load the Panasonic Monitoring App on your phone. Once those steps are complete you can watch the video feed directly from your phone and, get this: You can speak back and forth through the cameras and your phone!
Imagine scaring your teenagers when you catch them eating the last piece of cake!
Okay not really, that wouldn’t be a good idea.
Many people use these to record their pets at home while they’re away. It can also be used as a baby monitor in other parts of your home. Likewise, you can mount the cameras outdoors to monitor what’s happening on your property.
Disclosure: Panasonic provided the HN6002W for our family to test. As always, my thoughts and opinions are my own.
