Surveillance cameras come in all shapes and sizes, and most residential units offer the ability to be remotely access so that you can see what’s happening at home from the screen of your smartphone. But there’s one more feature you might want to consider when shopping for a surveillance solution: the ability to remotely pan and tilt the camera for a more expansive view.
Vimtag’s P2P technology, which has been incorporated into a new line of residential home monitoring cameras, let you move the camera from a companion iPhone or Android app. In addition to panning and tilting capabilities, the cameras feature built-in motion detection, microphones, and Wi-Fi connectivity.
An outdoor version of the camera is available, and a unique “SOS” accessory can be added to turn the camera also into a panic button. If a family member has an emergency, he or she can call for help with a simple click of a button. This SOS button alerts and emergency contact who can check in visually and vocally through the camera.
Video captured by the Vimtag cameras (as many as four) can be stored in the cloud for up to 60 days without a fee.
Several packages are available, ranging from $99.95 for a single indoor camera to $339.95 for several outdoor cameras. A combination kit of indoor and outdoor cameras sells for $199.95.
