On my recent vacation, I wanted to have a way to check on the house. We've also had a few break-ins and package stealing in our neighborhood over the last year. I found these incredibly affordable and awesome wireless cameras on Amazon. I bought two and they have worked flawlessly. I purchased these specifically because they pan, tilt, and zoom. I even have one installed outside under the porch to monitor packages.
Surprisingly, their iOS app doesn't suck either. I wasn't expecting it to work as well as it does. Another good thing is you don't have to pay for their cloud storage, though it's not too expensive. I just bought a couple of 32GB SD cards, giving me plenty of rewind capability.
PS: To help boost revenue and keep the newsletter going, I've started highlighting products I've bought and liked with an affiliate link. If you use my link, anything you purchase after clicking may earn me a small bit of money. It's a great way to support Indie iOS Focus Weekly if you are buying stuff on Amazon already :)
