If you’re the kind of person who picked up a video baby monitor and saw it as a better opportunity to use as a spy camera rather than to check up on your child, then the iZON Remote Room Monitor is for you. Looking a little webcam-like, this handy little device will sit pretty much anywhere you want it to (thanks to the mounting brackets included), connect to a local wireless network, and stream video and audio to your iOS device anywhere in the world.
The possibilities for a device like this are pretty much endless…but ultimately we reckon it’s for living out your dream of becoming a spy and planting it somewhere to get a Big Brother style view of the world. If you ever wished you were a fly on the wall in a room, this is your fly. Not that we’re condoning bugging a room and spying on private conversations of course…
In bright white, the iZon itself isn’t the most inconspicuous design we’ve seen, it’s more webcam than spycam so perhaps covert operations may not be its best use, but its stand-out design could work as an advantage when it comes to deterring would-be criminals or nosey co-workers from your office. The iZON features motion and sound detection and can alert you on your iOS device, via push notification, if something is going on.
Once the iZON has raised the alarm you can tap into its video feed over WiFI or 3G on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch using the Stem:Connect app. The iZON can ever be set up to record video to a private YouTube channel for archiving and replaying at a later date.
We’re obviously going to try and get our hands on one of these as soon as we can, and we reckon the real value of this product will come from the streaming video quality, so keep your eyes peeled for more information on the iZON as soon as we can get it to you.
The Stem Innovation iZON is available online from Stem Innovation’s website for $129.95 now.
