Nanny Cam Options For Every Home and Family
You have a right to know what’s going on in your own home, if you’re a parent who has ever left your child with a babysitter, you’ll know that it can be hard to stop fretting about what your child is up to.
Nanny cameras were invented to allow anxious, nervous parents to check in on their child when their child is in the care of another person.
What does a nanny cam do?
Nanny cams allow parents to monitor their child’s care discreetly, without drawing attention to the fact that video is being recorded. This ensures that the child isn’t distracted or worried by the presence of a camera, and anyone caring for your child doesn’t alter their behaviour from knowing that they’re on camera - you can see how they behave in your home when they think that no one is watching.
Nanny cameras can be hidden in clocks, plants, books or soft toys, making them appear to be everyday items whilst they discreetly record any activities occurring in the room. We all want the best for our families and at The Spy Store, we’re dedicated to giving you peace of mind and industry-leading security solutions.
Do you need WiFi for nanny cam?
Our nanny cameras require WiFi to work to their full capacity, as nanny cams are designed to send footage remotely. Using a WiFi nanny camera allows you to get up to the minute footage of what’s going on in your home when you’re not there, with no lag or downtime.

Should you use a nanny cam?
It’s important to consider the ethics of using a nanny cam or hidden camera - for instance, if you have home care workers, you will want to consider whether you intend to inform them that they’re being monitored.
Before you install a nanny camera, always ensure that you understand the ethics and the law around using cameras inside your home to monitor adults looking after your children to ensure that you are fully legally compliant.
If you’re looking to protect your children and family and have peace of mind while you’re away, then a nanny cam might be the right choice for your home security needs.

Get a nanny camera for your child or an elderly member of your family if you’re worried about onboarding a new babysitter or nurse in your home. Nannies are a great help in the household. However, with the rising rates of elderly and child abuse involving them, it’s not unreasonable to want to take extra precautions. Nanny cameras enable you to monitor the ongoings in your home when you’re away. When buying a nanny cam for your home, there are many options to consider, not just the top 10 nanny cameras you find on Google. Nanny cameras in Australia can come in the form of large or mini video cameras, overt or secret security cameras like hidden ceiling cameras, and spy nanny cameras with special features such as a spy camera with motion sensor, night vision, two-way audio, personal alarm, or voice recorder functions. At The Spy Store, you can choose from extensive nanny camera options with all sorts of special functions to help you get the best surveillance experience for your home.
But before that, first, let us address your nanny camera queries on the related state and local laws on spy nanny cameras, where best to hide them, and how to choose the best one.
Are nanny cams legal in Australia?
Many people worry about a hidden nanny cam being illegal where they live, and it’s a perfectly valid concern. You want to make sure you don’t get into legal trouble when you just wanted a nanny camera to monitor your family and property. The short answer is that installing a hidden camera in your home is not illegal, but there are variables to consider:
It should not be in a private room
You can install a mini hidden spy camera in your home only in common places such as your kitchen, living room, or the kids’ play area. Placing a hidden nanny camera in the bathroom or their private room where explicit images can be recorded is not legal in Australia.
Your intent for recording should not be malicious
A nanny cam in Australia should only be used for intentions such as monitoring the safety of your child, old family members, or your belongings. Spy gadgets used with the obvious intent of recording private information or images are a major legal offence.
Recordings should only be shown to relevant authorities
Under no circumstances should recordings be shown publicly in person or through social media. Recordings should only be seen by you when reviewing the footage, or the police when the footage is used as evidence in court.

Where are the best places to hide nanny cameras?
The best hiding place for a secret nanny camera is one that doesn’t easily give away its location yet enables a clear view of the room at the same time so the footage will be of good quality. Some top hiding spots for hidden cameras would be ceilings, walls, cabinets, and desks. But the best place to hide a surveillance camera is in plain sight.
A discreet security camera can be harder to spot if it is disguised as a regular household item. At The Spy Store, for example, you can get nanny cameras in the form of an alarm clock, power bank, phone charging dock, smoke detector, speaker, and even key fob. The good thing is that our spy cameras are not just mere decoys; they offer actual functions of what seems to be like our power bank hidden camera that actually charges USB devices and Bluetooth speaker that actually makes music.
What should I look for in the best nanny camera?
There is a multitude of factors to consider if you want to end up with the best nanny camera for your home such as hidden camera prices, sizes, and their overall functionality. But even just focusing on these top three considerations can increase your chances of picking out the best choice already:
More than anything, your camera should be able to record clear footage or else it defeats the purpose of discreetly recording in the first place. The Spy Store gadgets are equipped with high-resolution hardware to capture crystal-clear visuals that eliminate second-guessing what’s on the screen.
Your camera should also have reliable data storage and backup capabilities to reduce the risk of footage loss. Most spy gadgets from The Spy Store can be upgraded with additional memory cards to expand your storage space and make it more reliable for recording crucial footage.
