Butterfleye is a new smart social camera for the connected home


Keeping an eye on your property and loved ones when you’re not physically there is important for your peace of mind and for security purposes. The Butterfleye is a new camera that features completely wireless operation, two way audio and Active Eye Intelligence which automatically captures 1920 x 1080 pictures and videos using motion detection and thermal sensors. The camera has built in storage that can store up to 12 hours of video and will also upload your video and pictures to the Cloud when it’s in range of your WiFi network. The pictures and images can then be accessed via an iPhone and shared on social networks. 

The camera has built in sensors and software that can recognize when people are home or there is an important event happening that needs to be captured. If nothing is going on, it knows to shut down to save battery life. As mentioned above, the Butterfleye is wireless. That not only pertains to the way it transfers captured video and pictures, but it also has to do with how the camera is powered. It runs on rechargeable batteries so the camera doesn’t have to be tethered to a power outlet. Fully charged, the battery will last about 2 weeks.

    What does this even mean? Its really confusing and ambiguous:

    “You have 1-DAY free cloud storage. To access video footage before that, it will cost $9.95/month for a 7-DAY plan and $29.95/month for a 30-DAY plan.”

    Does that mean its cumulative? Or you can pick one day a week to check activity? I would imaging people would want to be alerted as the activity happens, right?

    What is a 7 day plan vs a 30? Same problem – do you pick 7 days out of the month that you are able to see your footage? This model doesn’t make much sense. I can’t believe I am the only one that is confused by this.
