Perfectly sits in front of the cradle.
Came in a large white box that looked like any other. Inside were the camera and other tools needed to make it work. We put it in the corner as described for the best angle and it gets everything happening. Thankfully I think our fears were misplaced but the peace of mind is of course very nice.
Simple yet tapes good quality video. Pleased with how this is working out. Don't think the nanny knows and hopes she never does!
