Trying out being in two places at once!


Homemonitor pictureI have been trying out a new gizmo called HomeMonitor™ which will feature in our Safety and Security show on Saturday 14th Sept at 12pm.

It's a pretty cool system which has a number of very useful applications. Wi-Fi cameras slot into your home, whether it’s in or outdoors.

You simply power the camera, connect to your home broadband and you can see, hear and record from as many HomeMonitor™ cameras as you need.

The system allows you to see and hear exactly what is happening when you are away from home with high quality image resolution and crystal clear audio, which automatically records to your online account. (And you get 7 days of footage saved for free forever!)

Just like Facebook, Spotify or your Gmail account, HomeMonitor™ can be accessed from anywhere, at any time. All you need is an internet connection and you can access your world from any computer, smartphone or tablet from anywhere.

Homemonitor picturesI thought it would be handy to keep an eye on the pets or kids. My friends with younger kids and babies saw it as a great monitoring system, that gives sound and vision for working parents who are away but want to see their nippers every night!

But by far, in a way the most useful idea is to keep an eye on elderly or infirm parents or relatives, without being too intrusive. The great thing is you can pick up your phone and quickly check they are ok – you can hear and see, even in the dark.

I thought it would be really tricky to set up but it was a snip and I have unplugged and plugged it in various different places. It has been dead reliable and not at all like most Wi-Fi things!

I have included a few screen grabs from my recordings to show the sort of picture you get and how it looks in the dark!

Join us on Saturday to find out more.
