TechBits: Simple home camera systems

Posted: Updated:

Many people have elaborate and expensive home security camera systems- but companies are now coming out with new camera systems that are lees expensive, and easy to install.

One pioneer in the field is a company called Dropcam.  It came out with individual cameras that work on your home wireless network. You can preview the video on a  mobile app- and that video is stored on an external server.  That way, if someone steal your security camera, they won't also steal the evidence.

Netgear has a similar product with its Vuezone series, introduced this year at the Consumer Electronics Show.  They have very similar features to Dropcam, but at a slightly lower price point.  It's also easy to add on cameras to an existing system.

Other companies also have competing products- so do some looking around to find the product that's right for you.
