In this segment from PIX11 New York, reporter Mary Murphy sits down with BrickHouse Security CEO Todd Morris to discuss nanny cams in the wake of the brutal Millburn, New Jersey home invasion.
Murphy is first surprised to learn that a high-quality camera system can be purchased for as little as $99, as was the one used to capture the New Jersey footage. Morris then takes her on a brief tour of BrickHouse’s nanny cam collection, including cameras hidden in potted plants, water bottles, smoke detectors, wall outlets, clocks, encyclopedias and more.
While the Millburn home invasion was unique in not only its level of violence but also the clarity and length of the video, Murphy points out that it is only one in a string of assaults caught by nanny cams in recent months. Morris notes that sales of nanny cams are up 30 to 40% over the last two years, which is due in part to rapid advances in technology, which is bringing higher quality, more affordable nanny cams to homes across the world.
