Let's face it—you can't be everywhere at once. But as a parent, you don’t want to miss anything. Chronicling the major milestones in your kids’ lives—whether it’s their first word, first steps, or first day of school—is why, on average, parents post more than 1000 photos and videos of their kids online before they turn 5.
But with things happening so quickly, there’s always the chance that you’ll miss something. Or, maybe you’d rather experience the moment as it happens instead of recording it. Either way, fear of missing out is a real thing when you're a parent.
Luckily, you don’t have to choose between staying in the moment and recording it—not when you have cameras in the house.
Indoor cameras capture things in the moment
If you thought indoor cameras were only for capturing potential burglars, think again. The Vivint Ping Camera is an indoor camera that acts as a second set of eyes for busy parents. With HD resolution and wide-angle lens, the Ping camera doesn't miss a thing. It's like a nanny cam, but far more advanced.
Let's say you get home from work and the babysitter tells you your toddler took her first steps. Or maybe your child is doing something adorably hilarious, you don't have your phone, and you don't want to miss the moment to look for it. No need to fear. With a Ping camera in the room, it records those precious moments so you can go back and rewatch them.
It's not just the can't-miss sentimental moments your Ping camera records. Whether it's a mess no one is fessing up to, or you want to know who really started the fight you walked in on, your Ping camera has the answers.
Camera features for working parents
The Ping camera also provides a way for working parents to keep tabs on their kids and stay in touch with features like:
- Two-way talk. Using the Vivint Smart Home app, you can call into your camera when you're away from home and have a conversation with your kids. This is particularly convenient if your kids aren't answering their phones or if they don't have cell phones yet.
- One-touch callout. The one-touch callout button on top of the Ping camera allows your kids to contact you on your smartphone with just the touch of a button. And while your kids' definition of an emergency might differ from yours—"He won't let me play the Xbox!"—you'll still be accessible whenever they need you.
- Custom notifications. You can set alerts that notify you on your smartphone when something happens in the room or motion is detected. From the notification, you can open the app to view a live camera feed from the Ping camera.
DVR means you can access footage anytime
So how do you access all this footage the Ping camera records? With Vivint Playback DVR, of course! Video recorded by the Ping camera is stored on the Vivint Smart Drive, which comes with 1 TB of storage and automatically saves 30 days' worth of video from up to four cameras.
Even with all that footage, it's a cinch to keep track of major moments. Event markers simplify the search process and are automatically included in your playback timeline whenever motion is detected, so you don't have to wade through hours of footage of your empty family room. Best of all, you can watch this video at any time from the Vivint Smart Home app or SkyControl Panel.
With the Vivint Smart Drive, you can pick out video clips you want to share and send to family and friends within seconds. Now your grandparents from a few states over can see all the cute things your kids do.
As a parent, you want to capture every adorable moment you can. With the Ping camera and Vivint Smart Drive, you can be a connected family and relive the moment whenever you want.
