HomeMonitor™ is a secure cloud camera service that makes it easy for people to monitor their home, loved ones and belongings
Apple version available now for free download, and Android version slated to launch early March
Launched in early January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the Y-cam HomeMonitor™ is the latest Wi-Fi video monitor service that makes it easier than ever for people to monitor their home, loved ones and belongings from any device, anywhere. Uniquely, HomeMonitor is the only web video monitoring service that allows users to record footage from their cameras online for free, with no monthly subscription required.
The Y-cam HomeMonitor™ app mirrors the features available from the web dashboard, allowing users to control their HomeMonitor™ system and interact with multiple cameras at once. Users can either watch live footage or an archive of recorded clips, which are recorded when movement is detected such as from a front door, driveway, child’s room, etc.
“Tapping into home life from your smartphone is invaluable when you’re on the go,” said Devin Chawda, Y-cam CEO. “Whether you’re keeping an eye on who approaches the front door, looking after your automobile, checking in on a babysitter or elderly caregiver, or watching over your pet when you’re at work, our HomeMonitor™ cameras allow you to keep an eye on the things you care about most, and these apps cement our aim to make staying in touch as easy as possible, whatever device you happen to be using.”
Similar to accessing the HomeMonitor™ system online, the app provides alerts customizable to the user’s preferences. The app is suitable for iPhone and iPad screens, automatically readjusting to the screen of the device it is used on to maximize the viewing area. The iOS version of the app is available now, and the Android version will be available beginning in March.
HomeMonitor™ is the first-ever wireless video monitoring service offering both indoor and outdoor cameras that are Wi-Fi enabled and provides true cloud-based viewing and recording. HomeMonitor™ Indoor ($199.99) and HomeMonitor™ Outdoor ($349.99) both come standard with the HomeMonitor™ free service package which includes 7 days of rolling free online cloud storage and unlimited email alerts. An optional upgrade package is available to increase storage time for a low yearly fee (30 days of online recording is just $39.99 per camera, per year).
The Y-cam HomeMonitor™ App is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch with iOS 5.1 or later.
