Simple, stylish streaming WiFi camera: Dropcam HD.

Techstination feature for Thursday, August 30, 2012

A streaming WiFi camera that makes surveillance or security simple.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    There are lots of  streaming WiFi cameras on the market that will allow you to keep tabs on pets or children or monitor for security.   But few are as easy to set up and as stylish in appearance as the Dropcam HD.   CEO Greg Duffy….

Software is key.  It needs to be easy to use.   If it’s a device that’s meant to deliver peace of mind, a whole weekend spent setting it up is not the best way to get started.  We designed it so that it looked like something that would fit in the home, like a high end gadget. ”

The video quality is good and can be viewed from anywhere via computer, iPhone, iPad or Android device.   There is sound monitoring and even talk back capability.   Those features are free,  there are subscription fees for storing recorded video in the cloud.  The Dropcam HD sells for about 150 dollars.  You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
