Dropcam HD, a tiny Wi-Fi-connected video camera, lets you monitor your home, or anything else that’s important to you, from afar. Via the free Dropcam app, you can stream live 720p HD video of your son coming home from school to your iPhone or Android device; or watch online as the mechanic enters your home to fix the dishwasher. HD ensures quality video, and you can even digitally zoom in to see something important. The device is easy to set up, it doesn’t require software, and it has a wide-angle lens for even more viewing area.
We especially love Dropcam HD’s small form factor; it weighs just 5.5 ounces. Infrared technology is also handy; the device can record video in complete darkness. Dropcam HD is more than just a camera. It offers two-way audio, and you can even have alerts sent to your mobile device when motion is detected and you’re not home. DVR service is optional, and you’ll need to pay a monthly fee to get it. For instance, for a single camera on the basic plan (seven days of recorded video), you’ll pay $9.95 per month or $99 per year.
For homeowners looking for an extra bit of security, new parents looking for a better way to watch baby, or pet owners who want to check in on their pet (or furniture) while away from home, Dropcam HD offers an affordable, easy-to-use, and connected monitoring solution.
