The 1080p high-res camera detects movement, promising smarter alerts “without false alarms.” When the camera detects movement, it sends an alert to your iOS or Android device, allowing you to watch video in real time or review previously recorded footage. An infrared night vision feature even lets you see in the dark with clarity.

The wide-angle monitor promises easy installation through simply plugging the device into a wall and connecting it to an existing WiFi network.

With a yearly subscription fee of $99, you can have a permanent record of video recorded and two-way real time conversation capabilities.

“The camera is great and takes really good images and videos in the dark,” one reviewer writes. “The wide angle lens captured the entire room without any problems. Perfect intro device to see if you want a more comprehensive system later on.”

At the very least, you’ll finally be able to see what your pet does when you go to work, and that’s truly one of life’s greatest mysteries.
