How does it work? You set up the camera any where in your home. The camera transmits a real-time video (via the Internet) to an iPhone or Android-driven smartphone. The camera’s motion detector automatically sends you email when it detects movement. And it saves a 30-second video recording to an SD card (2 GB card included.)
You can adjust the angle of the camera by logging onto a website and pan the camera up to 270º. The video resolution is 640 x 480 30 fps. The 15 infrared LEDs around the lens support night-vision surveillance. The device connects to a computer via Ethernet cable (included) or WiFi. And its compatible with computers running Windows 7, Vista, XP or Mac OS X 10.5 or later.
