While the baby stage may last a year or two longer than a wedding celebration, you’ll likely rue the day you spent so much money — or registered for so many pricey items — you used only a handful of months. Babies really do grow very quickly!
We’ve already discussed two reasons you should ditch a traditional baby monitor in favor of X10 cameras: price and quality. Now we’re going to discuss value. Closely related to both price and quality, this reason goes beyond both to include the value adds inherent in the fabulous X10 products.
Dual Functionality and Uses Beyond the Baby Years
Value is determined by a combination of price, quality, and amount of use. So if you take the amount of money you would spend on a traditional video baby monitor (let’s say $100, on the low end) and divide it by the number of years you’ll be using it (let’s say 5, on the high end), the product will cost you approximately $20 per year (assuming it lasts that long). If you purchase an X10 camera ($70) and use it twice as long (10 years), it will cost you only $7 per year.
During the baby stage, your LI2 Wireless HD IP Stick Camera or LQ2 Wireless HD IP Ball Camera (available in White or Black) can fulfill both the function of a video baby monitor with 2-way communications and a nanny cam, which allows you to peek in on your child when you’re away and a babysitter (or your significant other) is on duty.
Beyond that dual functionality, your LI2 or LQ2 can be used for intercommunication with older children later on or for home security purposes. Which brings us to the most significant value-add of these products.
Gateway to X10 Home Automation and Home Security
Perhaps the greatest value-add of purchasing an X10 product is actually in its potential use as a gateway product to other fabulous, cutting-edge X10 products. For instance, you could use your camera along with this basic Home Security Starter Kit to provide your family and assets with 5 layers of protection, without expensive professional installation or monthly fees.
If you love having your smartphone alerted when your camera senses motion or find that the convenience of WiFi-enabled intercoms become a luxury you want to expand upon, this X10 Home Automation and Home Security Kit might be for you. (Check out this expansive kit!) Since all X10 products can coordinate with one another, and any kits can be expanded, the combination possibilities are truly endless.
Instead of seeing your baby monitor purchase as an item with temporary use, you can see it as an investment in the future protection of your home and family, taking you through many beautiful stages and providing high-tech convenience and security through each one.
