Wi-Fi Video Home Monitoring Camera – SpotCam – Announces Live Zoom Capability

Zoom Feature Takes Advantage of HD Video for More Effective Live Monitoring

January 15, 2015, Taipei Taiwan - SpotCam, the cloud home monitoring service startup, announces a new Live Zoom feature for its SpotCam Wi-Fi home monitoring camera. The new feature lets users zoom in on a user selected area of the live 720p HD video feed, allowing users to catch all the details they might miss in the full view. Along with Motion Masking, Time Lapse and the easy installation, Live Zoom makes Spotcam the more effective and easy to use video home monitoring solution.

Live Zoom

SpotCam’s 720p high resolution video is great for capturing all the information in a scene but means smaller visual details can be hard to pick out when viewed at full size. With Live Zoom, users just drag a zoom selection box to get a close up, letting them focus on an area of interest and catch all the details of the scene even on a smaller screen.

Motion Masking

Users can now tell the SpotCam, which offers 24 hours of cloud based security video storage for free, to ignore different areas of the camera's view, such as a window, ensuring they only receive notifications that matter via email or the mobile app. Motion detection alerts are only triggered if there are motions in the unmasked part of the camera view.

Simple to Setup, Simple to Use

With an incredibly easy setup, SpotCam makes it easy to check up on loved ones from anywhere. A cloud based approach combined with iOS and Android apps means it's easy to see what's going on at home from a computer or smartphone.

Time Lapse

With the 24 hours of video stored for free on the cloud, SpotCam wireless security camera users can now easily make time lapse videos to quickly review a day's video recording. Setting the time period and picture intervals lets users customize the time lapse. Whether for quickly reviewing surveillance footage, creating video diaries, or artistic vignettes, the new time lapse feature makes SpotCam more powerful than ever.
