- New HD IP Camera works with WeMo and features push to talk functionality making the NetCam HD+ your eyes at home when you’re not
Rushden, UK – 26 June, 2014 – Belkin today announced the NetCam HD+, a high definition Wi-Fi camera that allows users to see their home day and night in high-quality 720p resolution via their smartphone, tablet, or PC. The NetCam HD+ uses a wide-angle glass lens to provide details that are crisp and ultra-clear. Other premium and unique features include night vision, highly secure Wi-Fi streaming, cloud storage, easy setup and push to talk. The new camera also works with WeMo, which enables users to access their camera via the WeMo app and set up rules and triggers with other installed WeMo solutions.
"NetCam HD+ is the latest innovation in our portfolio of IP home surveillance. People care about their possessions, their pets and their homes, so we made our latest NetCam the most intuitive and feature rich product to date, enabling users to check their home environment wherever they are and keep an eye on what's going on through the NetCam's alert features," said Mike Chen, VP of product management for Belkin's networking group.
Works with WeMo
One of key features of the NetCam HD+ is the ability to work with the WeMo ecosystem of home automation products. Users can apply rules to the camera or connect activities with other WeMo products by simply using the WeMo app. The NetCam HD+ includes motion detection capabilities so users can pair their NetCam with other WeMo products like the WeMo Switch - so when the NetCam detects motion the device connected to the WeMo Switch, such as a lamp, will turn on.
Push to Talk
The new push to talk function allows users to watch what’s going on in their home at the same time as talking to people or even pets while they’re out. The built in microphone allows two-way conversations, so users can check in on what is going on in their home and tell their kids to get off the games console or their dog to get off the couch.
Belkin has added cloud storage to the new NetCam HD+. This new premium service automatically records HD video to the cloud anytime the camera detects motion. The footage is stored on secure cloud services and included timeline feature helps users see footage by day and time. Users can also download clips directly to their PC for storing locally or sharing. This premium service is available at no cost for 30 days and then £7.99/€9.99 per month or £79.95/€99.99 for a one year subscription.
The NetCam HD+ is easy to set up using any iOS or Android device and connects directly to a Wi-Fi router without the need of a computer. The NetCam app, available at no cost, allows users to monitor your home remotely anytime, anywhere. The app also provides email alerts, notifying users when motion is detected and sending a snapshot of the motion in HD quality. When used with the WeMo app, also available at no cost on Google Play or the App Store, users can set up their NetCam to work with other WeMo devices.
