Dropcam Echo Camera Adds Sound And Push Notifications To The iPhone
Dropcam bills their products as small, easy to setup and affordable wireless home monitoring systems. Their latest offering is the Dropcam Echo. It’s a essentially a wireless webcam that connects to your home’s router over WiFi – it just needs to be plugged in. They’ve produced an iPhone app as well as a web interface that allows you to access the video feed complete with sound from any where you’ve got an Internet connection. For a small monthly fee you can record up to 1 month of footage to Dropcam’s cloud storage service, or set the camera to detect motion and ‘push’ an alert to your iPhone or send an email containing a snap shot and playable footage.
Can’t wait to monitor the baby sitter? Good, because the Dropcam Echo is available now for $279 with additional features rolling out this summer.
