The Dropcam Pro is my all time favorite security camera. It's my favorite because it provides the best wide angle image I've found in a security camera, it's easy to setup and has a very good web viewer and mobile app for remote viewing. Of course no gadget is ever 100% perfect for everyone and the main [...]

I've avoided playing with "home" monitoring cameras because (1) I live in a tiny condo in San Francisco, and (2) my son is 8 now and we're past the baby monitoring stage.  I do have friends and family with small children, so I figured I owed it to them to stay on top of this [...]

We live in a gated community and just a few years ago, things were stolen out of our car while it was parked in our driveway in broad daylight (we had forgotten to lock it that day). We never found out who had perpetrated the crime, but I remember wishing I had some kind of [...]

I've been procrastinating for a while now about picking up an IP-Cam to monitor my home and my cats while I am away from home. We've managed to get by on a webcam attached to our media center computer, but it is stationary, with no pan and tilt capabilities. I've seen Swann cameras in my [...]

Dropcam Pro review

Zetta-Z12-stock

I've always been on the hunt to make my own at-home security camera.  I've fiddled with low-res webcams and my Raspberry Pi, which have given me interesting results.  When I recently got the opportunity to review a small form-factor security camera, I jumped at the chance.  Let's take a look at the Intelligent Security Z12 Camcorder by [...]

The included administration application lets you identify cameras on the network and find their IP address.

Everyone occasionally wanders into a situation where they want or need to have an extra set of eyes watching their stuff.  There are a number of ways to do this by setting up a webcam, but getting a webcam where you need it can be difficult, and not everyone has the patience or know-how to [...]

Knock knock!  Who's there?  Now you'll know with the PeepHole Viewer PHV1330 from Brinno, which records images outside your door onto a microSD card and has a 3" LCD display on the inside for your viewing.
