HomeMonitor HD Pro review

A useful surveillance kit for your home

Screen shot 2014-10-29 at 15.42.18

Keeping your home safe is of utmost importance, so this external security camera by Y-cam is already a necessity for most. It’s a touch on the heavy side, but well-made and robust enough to help you get the desired viewing angle and withstand any knocks and scrapes it may encounter.

The device is much easier to set up than other surveillance items, and we were up and running with it in no time.

After taking daily 720p video and audio recordings, every video is uploaded to a specifically crafted cloud storage account where users can watch these recordings; or they can instead choose to watch a live feed through the HomeMonitor app, which is downloadable from the Google Play store.

Streaming was of decent quality and kept lag to an absolute minimum during our time with the kit.

It works out to be a great security package for those who can’t afford to spend out on a more deluxe piece of kit.
