HOUSTON, Texas — A nanny in Houston claims a man hacked into the baby monitor of a child in her care.

KHOU reports that Ashley Stanley says she was changing the baby’s diaper when she realized the two were joined by an uninvited guest.

The camera on the baby monitor allows parents to check in on the baby from work using their cell phones. Someone managed to hack the system, and the nanny says the man even struck up a conversation, letting her know he was watching.

“I heard someone talking on the camera monitor, and I was like, maybe my bosses are playing a trick on me,” she said.

The camera isn’t password protected, but the home WiFi network it is attached to is. For now, the family has ditched the camera. It’s not clear if the hacker will ever be identified.
