Here's a neat little wireless network camera from Stem Innovation called the iZON Remote Room Monitor that can stream both audio and video to your iOS device. It comes in handy if you've been trying to figure out which of your two dogs keeps leaving puddles indoors while you're away at work. And of course, for those with small children, it'll be a great way to keep an eye on them and have overall peace of mind.
The iZON easily connects to most wireless networks and can be controlled by a free Stem:Connect App for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touch devices. It sits on a magnetic base that swivels and can be mounted to most horizontal surfaces including the ceiling. The iZON provides unlimited viewing over your local network, but can also remotely stream video and audio to your handheld device over 3G networks for up to 5 minutes at a time.
Motion sensor controls can be setup so that you receive alerts via push notifications when movement is detected. Similar notifications can be setup for audio detection passed a certain threshold.
Videos can also be recorded to a free, private YouTube account. These recordings can be automatically initiated by motion and noise alerts or you can manually select to record 30-second clips to your YouTube account. These videos remain private unless you choose to share them.
The iZON is available now at www.steminnovation.com as well as in select Best Buy locations. The device will also become available soon at Apple retail stores in the US and Canada. Priced at $129.95.
