The Dropcam Pro Cloud-Based Wi-Fi Monitoring System is an easy to set up streaming indoor HD camera with two-way audio that serves as a baby monitor, surveillance camera, or a way to stay connected with loved ones when away from home.

The two-way talk feature allows you to hear and speak to whoever is near the camera.

The camera streams HD video at 720p using the H.264 codec for excellent video quality with minimum data usage. When the lights are out the built-in IR emitters provide illumination for the camera, so you can still see images in the dark. Dropcam provides free mobile device and web apps for viewing and controling the camera system. The Dropcam Pro can be set up to deliver alerts on motion/event detection, and you can create a schedule of on off times for the system. Dropcam also provides a paid optional cloud based recording system, so you can record what you've missed.

The camera connects to your Wi-Fi network and streams the video to the cloud, Dropcam servers, which then seamlessly allow you and anyone you allow access to the live video feed.
IR

          I have two of these cameras. There is no pixalation. Clear play back from the cloud. I do not have a problem with them going off line. I have netgear high speed wireless router with two channels. Camera is acurate when motion is detected. Very clear night vision. Sound quality is excellent. Speaking through the system is clear. I did purchase the cloud for 1 camera at $ for a year. Second camera would be $ more but decided I don't need two recordings. You automatically get a 2 week trial of cloud when you set the camera up. Easy to set up, it took 3 minutes! It has a wide view. You can see the entire room minus about 2 feet out from the camera. It captures outside views perfectly. Camera gets hot but not too hot to touch as someone claimed. I would highly recommend.

          Setup of this camera is extremely easy and the quality is great. The Android app is also excellent for controlling the camera remotely as well as viewing captured and live video feeds.But the motion detection is WAY too sensitive. Very tiny movements of distant objects (i.e tree branch outside the window) or changes in light due to a passing car trigger an event. So you end up getting many emails saying activity was detected. Even with a restricted 'Activity Zone' setup I'm still getting false positives.They really need better motion detection, perhaps one based on radar rather than video processing? Don't know. But as it is this camera has limited use.I wouldn't recommend this camera to anyone that needs it to view outside, out a window, or even in the garage as the changes in light around the edges of the garage door trigger activity.

                          Camera setup was super simple and the overall quality of the camera is great. Only drawback is that it's pretty expensive. The camera is essentially useless without the cloud recording. Cloud recording runs you at $ /month. If the price isn't a big deal and you're looking for a quick setup and plenty of features I would go with this.

                              Bought this to act as a baby monitor for my future niece. During testing, the video viewed on Iphone or Ipad were excellent. It was amazingly clear. I was especially impressed with its night vision ability and the level of clarity in total darkness (there are infra-red LED built in). Connection using 5GHz 802.11n channel was very stable (although it wasn't far from my router). The software had a lot features. One of the important feature that I liked was the ability to monitor 'action' only from a smaller section of the overall picture, which is essential for monitoring a baby's crib for example. The 2 way communication was clear and only have a tiny bit of delay.
                              Can't wait for my niece to be born so that I can watch her from half a world away!

                              Decent camera to check in on kids, but probably not the best security camera since sun shining through a window sets off the motion detector 2-10 times a day? Expensive to record, and not easy to hide, especially with the huge cord plugged into it.

                              Definitely better than the previous version of dropcam, at least the one I had. video is sharper, better color quality. The price is a little hard to take. For what it is it seems pretty expensive. The cloud video storage is much better than having the recorded video on premises, no matter what a thief does to the cameras after he sees them, he cant get to the video that's already stored out on the web.
                              I have a less than perfect internet service and sometimes the video gets a few small breaks in it due to low bandwidth. The folks in town with cable and plenty of bandwidth should have no problem. all in all --4 stars

                                    If burglar comes in while off I guess I'm out of luck.

                                    My first survilance video camera. I have a Mac system and it was explained to me that this camera worked the best and the easiest to set up with the Mac. How true! The phone wait for tec support with the company is long but once you get them they are very helpful.
                                    They respond within 24 hours to an email.
                                    I would recommend this monitoring system to anyone who is not technical and wants to set it up in five minutes. It gives you a live feed. If you want the option of recorded video they have reasonable plans.

                                    Setup of this camera is extremely easy and the quality is great. The Android app is also excellent for controlling the camera remotely as well as viewing captured and live video feeds.But the motion detection is WAY too sensitive. Very tiny movements of distant objects (i.e tree branch outside the window) or changes in light due to a passing car trigger an event. So you end up getting many emails saying activity was detected. Even with a restricted 'Activity Zone' setup I'm still getting false positives.They really need better motion detection, perhaps one based on radar rather than video processing? Don't know. But as it is this camera has limited use.I wouldn't recommend this camera to anyone that needs it to view outside, out a window, or even in the garage as the changes in light around the edges of the garage door trigger activity.

                                          Cannot be used on a 4G wireless hotspot. Requires broadband. Does need a simple way to turn it off when we are home.

                                                Easy to set up. Works only with Internet, so there is no local browser headaches. If you cannot connect to it later it can mean your internet may be down or the power has gone down. I needed to monitor my Bird during a very hot time and knowing his temperature in the room made me know my AC was still running and I could check in from time to time. Disconnection can send you an email too. Recording costs extra after the demo period for those who need constant recording or when motion happens & for very long periods too. Zoom and talk/listen is nice too. Only wish they made a 360 degree model that would track motion..

                                                I have two of these cameras. There is no pixalation. Clear play back from the cloud. I do not have a problem with them going off line. I have netgear high speed wireless router with two channels. Camera is acurate when motion is detected. Very clear night vision. Sound quality is excellent. Speaking through the system is clear. I did purchase the cloud for 1 camera at $ for a year. Second camera would be $ more but decided I don't need two recordings. You automatically get a 2 week trial of cloud when you set the camera up. Easy to set up, it took 3 minutes! It has a wide view. You can see the entire room minus about 2 feet out from the camera. It captures outside views perfectly. Camera gets hot but not too hot to touch as someone claimed. I would highly recommend.

                                                                  I bought the Dropcam Pro for my father-in-law and he loves it. He can keep an eye on what's happening inside his house while he's working in his shop or out of town. Setup was simple, video quality is good, and it works flawlessly.

                                                                  The only negative is the audio lags a few seconds, but that isn't a big problem.
