Dropcam offers this amazing service. The camera connects to your wi-fi network and stream real-time video 24 hours a day to the server. You can watch your home remotely from your smart phone or laptop.
Dropcam is a startup based in San Francisco. Founded in 2009, the company has raised 2 rounds of funding, with $12 million of Series B in June 2012. As a young startup, the company has seen rapid user growth. Dropcam CEO Greg Duffy said that Dropcam cameras now upload more video per day than YouTube.
What makes Dropcam unique from other IP camera company is its video mining capability. If you want to review your video of the last 7 days, you don’t have to watching them from the beginning to the end. Dropcam automatic mark the video segment with motion, so that you can jump to those segments right away.
In addition, Dropcam plans to implement face and figure detection so that it can give more intelligent viewing options. Furthermore, the video view software can detect events such as cat running, dinner gathering and so on. The potential of video mining is limitless. Given our limited time to review videos of many hours (or days and weeks) and continuing accumulation of our daily recording, the need for video mining will keep growing.
