In this video, I unbox and setup my brand new Dropcam HD Wi-Fi Video Montoring Camera, in real time. I show how long it really took me to setup this Home Security Camera for my front door. I show the un-boxing, simply to help anyone wondering if their product is missing anything, when they first open it.
One cool thing about the Dropcam Wifi Security Camera is that it has two-way audio built in, so it could be used for a front door intercom camera, as long as you have a covered front entry. (The camera is not weatherproof). This way I could tell a solicitor to beat it, without even opening the front door. 🙂
I’ve made two videos on the topic of ways to mount the Dropcam outside. In one I kick around ideas of different ways to mount the dropcam outdoors. In the Dropcam Birdhouse video, I put my plan into action! You find those by scrolling down to related videos (below).
Dropcam also makes another version called Dropcam Pro, which has a wider view, which you could consider. For me and this location, this one is plenty wide for my front door camera. You can pickup Dropcam HD on Amazon or purchase one directly from the Dropcam website.
