Did you know the baby monitor feed can be intercepted?

Rebecca Dube writes:TODAY has a report on how easy it is for strangers to pick up your baby monitor feed and see inside your home. Most baby monitor signals are powerful but simple, so anyone outside your house with their own monitor can pick up your feed. WNBC reporter Tom Llamas drove through a Long Island neighborhood and did just that, capturing video of cribs, sleeping babies, and even picking up household conversations. Llamas warns of “the danger many parents are bringing into their homes.”

  • I knew that because I over heard a neighbors conversation on my own monitor.

  • Yes I did know that. I used mine very rarely, though I'm sure random people may have heard some interesting things.

  • Yep, I already knew that. I believe that it also says that on the monitor itself.

    I never used the video monitor.

  • this is why I use the easy walky talky like ones rather than video ones. Sure they might be able to pick up our conversation if we talk in the babies room.. but I'd never say anything that would be worth listening to.
