EyeSpy247: Stop Worrying, Start Seeing.


EyeSpy247 is an on-line based CCTV system. It offers following features:

  • Monitor your home or business 24/7
  • Set up multiple cameras on one account
  • DIY plug ‘n’ play camera install
  • Choice of wired and wireless cameras
  • Arm/disarm monitoring from a pc or mobile
  • Images/video stored off-site for remote access
  • Get event alerts via email and/or SMS
  • Add friends and family to receive alerts
  • UK based support team

The EyeSpy247 supports wired and wireless IP cameras from Lincsys, Y-cam, Panasonic and Axis (you can buy cameras in the EyeSpy247 shop or use yours). It doesn’t need some special knowledge to install and configure a new camera. Recorded video is stored on-line. So, user can access to it via web browser from anywhere (just need Internet connection) and share it with family members. Additionally the video is safely backuped by EyeSpy247.

Unlike the other similar system EyeSpy247 doesn’t have any monthly fees. User should pay just for the space for recorder video and sent SMS notifications. So, at the first glass it looks like good choice for simple home surveillance system.

AlertMe v2.0 offers energy monitoring and CCTV


AlertMe – ZigBee based home security system is gonna offer a new functionality in its next release. I already wrote about AlertMe SmartPlugs which will help to consumer to measure the energy consumption. Additionally the new AlertMe version will have PanicPanic button – press the button of your doorbell and SMS will send to your friend, Action chooser – it’ll be possible even switch off/on lighting by some event (set system in Night mode, for example), Tracking – will allow you to set up actions for any sensor triggers and the most important feature in my mind is CCTV, which will allow to monitor your home.

The AlertMe v2.0 is expected to be released at the beginning of next year. Till it isn’t available yet have a look its demo.
