Watch on your iPhone or Android in full motion
Dropcams use high-quality, low-bandwidth H.264 -encoding video to ensure you can see all of your video at full frame rate (up to 30 fps), even when you're on 3G! Don't see just a picture of what's going on - see that dog walking across your yard or your child crawling in her crib.

Get motion-triggered alerts sent to your mobile device or email
Dropcams use adaptive motion detection algorithms to notify you when something moves within its view. If enabled, you'll get an email or iPhone push notification when something happens.
Built for secure online access
Your video is private, so Dropcam encrypts the video using bank-level security (SSL) to ensure no one can see it except for you and the accounts you allow.
If you want to share your video with friends or family, you can securely do so using Dropcam's online service, where you can control viewing privileges in real time. Share your Dropcam with your neighbor when you go on vacation, and then disable it when you come back.
Record and save video securely when you're not around
With an optional Dropcam cloud recording plan, you can watch video on your own schedule, and you can go back to see what caused that motion alert you received. Dropcam's use 7-day rolling DVR so you can always go back and watch up to one week in the past.
