Stake out your children from the stove

Chris Davies - Feb 28, 2007

Perhaps years of being warned by the media of the “Paedophile Menace” has made me overly twitchy, but when UK kitchen retailers brand their latest high-tech intrusion into the room of food a “kiddy cam” then I start to wonder who exactly is peeping at your children. 


Still, I suppose as ideas go it’s topical – remote monitoring of your kids (or “distance parenting” as I like to snidely put it) is all the rage at the moment, proving that there’s nothing like being a mommy or a daddy with a cool G&T in hand and the ability to flick between Junior and Desperate Housewives at the flick of a remote control.

The wireless cameras integrate with a 10.2-inch flip-down TFT screen that also shows TV and can tune in to FM and AM radio.  Range is up to 30m, and for the privilege they’ll charge you £629 ($1,235)
