Disclosure: I received the Dropcam for review purposes only. All opinions are my own.
There are so many many reasons that one might want to have a video camera hooked up somewhere in your house. Maybe to be able to check in on a babysitter or post it at the front door so you know who’s coming up to your house. Or what about if you’ve had theft in the area and want to keep an eye on things.
I saw Dropcam and thought it’d be perfect for our family.
Dropcam is a high-definition Wi-Fi video camera with remote viewing and two-way sound for your home or business.
We set it up in our living room today. The kids know that it’s there so technically we’re not “spying” on them. 😉 We’ve started letting our oldest babysit and even though I’m comfortable with him babysitting, it’s nice to be able to check in and see what they’re doing.
The Dropcam also has two-way sound so that we can communicate back and forth. You can open up the live viewer on your computer or download the app and watch on your iPhone or iPad. It’s awesome!
Here’s a screenshot that I took on my iPhone:
