Installing video surveillance in your home wasn't exactly a trivial task until recently. It required thousands of dollars of equipment, professional installers, and a computer science degree to operate it. Fortunately we're past those days, and thanks to the Dropcam Pro, there's simply no excuse to not have video surveillance in your house.
The Dropcam is a small USB powered surveillance camera that connects directly to your WiFi network. From there it streams live video to the Dropcam web player, the app, the optional cloud recording service, or all of the above. The app allows you to manage and watch multiple Dropcams, and can be set to send you push notifications when it detects motion on any of them. Thanks to the 130° field of view, 8x zoom, and built-in microphone, you're sure to not miss anything important.
Setting up the Dropcam is dead-simple, and its small size and unobtrusive appearance means it will look at-home in any room you deem necessary. Home security certainly isn't the only use for the Dropcam, but believe me, if anything catastrophic happens in your home, you'll be damn glad you had your Dropcam setup.
