Scary story about video baby monitors

by Nikki Montgomery

Do you have a video baby monitor? If so you may want to rethink it. I'm glad I just went old school and just got an audio monitor.

A family in Texas had a video monitor in their 2 year old daughter's room. Through the monitor they heard a voice. They thought it was a burglar so they ran into their daughter's room, but no one was there, however, they could still hear the voice through the camera. The voice was making vulgar sexual comments and using the toddler's name, which was written on her wall.

Dad instantly unplugged the camera and called authorities. The conclusion is that the camera had been hacked. 

It's pretty scary to think that your baby monitor designed to keep your kids safe can actually put your child in more danger.
