Dropcam is a video viewing app that gives you a way to monitor your home or any other location through the app.
The purpose of Dropcam is to give people the ability to add video security to important places. Paired with the $149 base model Dropcam HD, you connect the app through Wi-Fi and can monitor events with video.
Designed for home security, parents can watch their kids through the app directly. Dropcam HD sits idle until it recognizes motion or audio and then sends an alert to your device. It also comes with a speaker and microphone so you can have a conversation is necessary to those on the camera.
The Dropcam app is easy to use. Once you sign in with your Dropcam account, it will connect directly to the camera. There are also public cameras you can view if you want. Video quality in Dropcam depends a lot on your network connection. While the camera transmits in 720p, a slow connection will not give you the same quality and there may be a lot of buffering of the video feed.
Dropcam is a great app for parents who want to watch their children or for home security.
