There’s too many choices when it comes to cameras, that’s a good thing and it’s a bad thing. It’s a good thing because it gives you choices and competition. It’s a bad thing because of compatibility issues, nothing seems to be standard when it comes to these types of cameras and it drives me nuts. So anyway, Belkin has just announced a new wi-fi camera, the NetCam HD which can record at 720p and it’s compatible with both Android and IOS devices. Price is $150 and you can get a free NetCam app on iTunes or Google Play.
-People-inspired tech brand Belkin helps provide mobile residents peace of mind when they’re away from home with its next-generation NetCam HD Wi-Fi Camera—available today for purchase at retail stores and on belkin.com. The new wireless networking camera provides users with instantaneous access via a smartphone or tablet to pets, children and other family members at home in dynamic 720p high-definition (HD) video resolution and clear digital audio.
