Location awareness support also allows Dropcam users to turn their camera on and off based on where they are. And a scheduling feature can turn the camera on and off at specific times of the day or week.
Content recorded from the Dropcam can be saved to the cloud, and users can also save and share their favorite clips. Live streams can also be shared with friends or publicly for others to view.
Dropcam says it uses bank-level security to ensure live and stored video are kept safe, even when connected to an open wireless network. The video recorded on Dropcam is encrypted on the camera itself, before it its transmitted to the cloud. It's also streamed to devices securely through SSL encryption.
An entry-level Dropcam is also available with a 107-degree field of view and 4x zoom. Its low-light vision and audio quality are not as strong as the new "Pro" version.
