Today I am going to be talking about Drop Cam Wi-Fi. The Drop Cam HD Wi-Fi is a high resolution Wi-Fi enabled webcam that records sound and has a broadcast feature. This is a good tool for parents that want to spy on their kids.
The Drop Cam Wi-Fi is a very easy to set up webcam. All you do is take the camera out of the box, plug it in to your computer via USB, then name your drop cam and you are done. Easy, right? The Drop Cam Wi-Fi also has the capability to not only hear what is going on but to speak to the people in the room from outside the house, office, store etc. It is a very flexible device that will fit in most positions. Beside being able to watch live, you can also review history to see what happened an hour, 2 hours, or even a day ago (if you pay the monthly fee). Drop Cam is the name of the mobile app that lets you watch your camera from your phone.
The Drop Cam Wi-Fi is a very well done gadget. But it could be better. The camera of the Drop Cam is not to good. It does capture the picture well but could be better. When you speak into the Drop Cam app the sound comes out of the Drop Cam very softly. If there is a way to turn the sound up than please tell me but as far as i know the Drop Cam is very soft. One very big thing to know is that it takes up 60GB of bandwidth a month! Should be smaller.
The Drop Cam is a little too expensive. Having one in the house won’t do you much good unless it’s in a vital spot. You need at least two. They need to have a pack of five Drop Cams. But that pack of five should cost less than buying five individually. Buying five right now would cost $750 (then add the monthly fee) and you’ll be bankrupt. It would be nice to have multiple views of your house instead of just one. Another need is the ability to move the camera from the app. Let say that you put your camera low down and something moves it. Wouldn’t you want to be able to move the camera from the app. Or if you hear things just out of the cameras view, you could just move it into position so you see everything!
Right now my household has one Drop Cam. We probably won’t get more because of cost but having one is okay. If you put it in a vital spot. We have it in the family room (where the action is). If you are really into using video cameras or spying on kids, friend, or people then get it. You could also wait a little to see if the price goes down. Those are my opinions of the Drop Cam Wi-Fi. Thanks for reading and see you next month!
