It's always good to explain and even show your maid the location of the cameras. I read somewhere that says that a person can become more honest just by knowing there's a camera nearby. :lol:

Nowadays, CCTV cameras are very cheap. But I don't recommend those really cheap one, because of the support and lousy software interface. I bought Dlink at challenger and it died within 2 years, and can't even do proper backup to its own dlink storage. It can be very frustrating not able to see the footages when you really need it. In the end, i engaged this CCTV contractor - https://entrycare.com/. Pretty good sales support. They recommend Hikvision cameras brand as they are more durable and affordable. And the cameras are still functioning for more than 4 years!

I have been using surveillance camera to monitor my maid as I had to leave my baby with her alone for half a day.It was really Godsend for a mother as you can see actually whats happening in your absence.We don't have maid anymore so I don't need camera.

If you are on a budget , i recommend VSTARCAM . Many of their products have features like night vision , in-built microphone and speakers , pan/tilt feature as well aslive viewing from your mobile phone anywhere anytime . There are also Hikvision and Dahua cameras that have good specs and at a reasonable prices and like some other people have said , they are more durable and have better quality firmware. There are have some promotional packages right now at sgcctvpro.com , they can get a bit pricey but i understand you are on a budget so i recommend packages 7 and 8 if you wanna get your money's worth .

1. Do they set up the cameras for you ? or self set up ?
2. Must switch on 24 hours ?
3. where do you place the cameras ? hall ? bedrooms ?

We have installed several CCTV in our home. We told our maid that we have CCTV and point to the dummy ones. So far, she is doing great taking care of our kids when we are at work. She's an Indonesian by the way.
