There’s a saying that goes back to first-century Rome – “Home is where the heart is.” Take a moment and think back to the first time you took a big trip away from home. Where did you go? Who were you with? How long were you gone? What did you see?
Each one of you will have different answers, but many will share at least one similar memory: getting back, rushing to your room, and relishing the familiar sights and smells as your family settled back in at home — that place where, no matter where you are, you long to be.
When we first built Dropcam we thought it was going to be a security camera to help my dad solve the mystery of whose dog was leaving “presents” in his front yard. But it turns out that we unintentionally invented much more: a way for you to feel like you’re home from anywhere.
Dropcam Pro brings you even more of that feeling. With an incredible new lens and sensor, you can see the entire room or pinch to zoom in on the small details. Enhanced two-way talk allows you to connect with people and pets. Dual-band Wi-Fi brings rock-solid reliability. The new Bluetooth low energy radio sets the scene for linking battery-powered sensors to Dropcam. And mobile setup means it’s easier than ever to get started.
Stay tuned for updates as we continue our usual pace of software innovation on this incredible new hardware platform. While you’ll still long for home, we hope you’ll feel a little bit closer with Dropcam Pro.
