Home Monitor Indoor Security Camera

Introduction

While smartphone apps and mobile connectivity are often touted for lots of things, be it fitness, media viewing, navigation or a whole host of other facilities, security isn’t one that’s touched on quite as much. Hoping to turn that trend around is Home Monitor, a home security camera system that hooks right up to your home network and gives you a chance to check in from wherever you are.

While I’m afraid this review won’t feature any of the usual overclocking or synthetic benchmarks, let’s take this camera for a spin and see if it can make us feel a bit safer.
