The Dropcam video camera is a revolutionary low-cost Wi-Fi-enabled video camera that offers free live streaming as well as cloud-based automated video recording.

 

Though there have been webcams and other wifi enabled video cameras since a few years, the Dropcam is the first one to provide an integrated set of features and services that make it extremely easy to use and setup and immediately useful for many different possible uses.

 

While chiefly used for private home monitoring, Dropcam cameras can be used in public mode for live video streaming in HD quality (min 400Kbps in upstream required).  

 

The newest model, the Dropcam HD, can live stream in 720p HD video, from anywhere there is a WiFi connection.
