How many times have you been sitting at your desk at work or out running errands and wondering what your kids are up to? Well, wonder no more with the VueZone Monitoring System ($200) — an innovative new system which allows you to monitor your home digitally.

Small, battery-powered cameras (sets come with one or two, but up to 15 can be used) can be easily mounted anywhere (the playroom, a child’s bedroom, etc.) you wish to keep an eye on. And once you’re set up, the motion-activated cameras transmits video wirelessly so you can check it online or via your smartphone.

Although the video is sometimes choppy, it’s good enough that you can see what’s going on at any given time. Note: There is no audio offered with this system, so it can’t really stand in for a regular baby monitor.

The VueZone may not be for everyone, but if leaving your little ones at home with others puts you on edge, it’s a great way to allay those fears. And for that reason alone, we think it’s worth a look.
