We’ve had the opportunity to spend time with an early version of the Dropcam HD WiFi monitoring camera prior to its CES unveiling, and now the company is finally ready to get the product out to the masses. Starting today, the bantam security camera is shipping from the outfit’s site for $149, with that tally netting you a USB-powered camera with automatic night vision, HD-quality video, two-way audio support, optional DVR-style recording ($9.95+ per month) and always-on access. As stated in our review, users can access a live stream of what it’s watching (or they’re watching, if using multiple cams) from any web browser, iPhone or Android-based device, and privacy advocates should know that all streams are “encrypted with bank-level security, and streamed through the cloud, not your computer, so it’s safe in case of any computer trouble or theft.” Head on past the break for the full spiel, or hit the source link to get your order in.
