If you activated your Dropcam or Dropcam Pro before October 26, 2013, now's your chance to take advantage of one-year of their awesome Cloud Recording service. From today through November 28, the service is discounted by $50! Originally priced at $99, Cloud Recording serves as a fantastic tool for reviewing footage from the past week on either your mobile device or computer, saving and sharing your favorite clips with family and friends and most important of all, you can filter motion alerts based on activities. Unfortunately, this special isn't valid for everyone. Reading the fine print, it states that this offer is only valid for non-CVR subscribers with cameras activated before October 26, 2013. Maybe we can stir up some awareness and Dropcam could extend this offer to everyone! Don't forget, with every new Dropcam or Dropcam HD, you get a free 7-day trial of their CVR. Posted below are the rates for their standard pricing. Note that if you have multiple cameras, each additional camera CVR subscription is discounted at 50% off. Grab one today!
I just placed my order for Dropcam's newest product the Dropcam PRO. The upgraded camera offers 2x sharper image quality, 8x zoom, 130 degree field of view, and an enhanced two-way talk compared to the previous model now simply called Dropcam. With the previous year old model having over 1100 reviews on Amazon including the numerous best sellers rankings such as:
- #10 in Camera & Photo (See Top 100 in Camera & Photo)
- #4 in Camera & Photo > Surveillance Cameras
- #5 in Electronics > Security & Surveillance
- #5 in Baby > Safety > Monitors
It's also no brainer that with only a week on the market, the HD model has already shot to the top!
- #1 in Home Improvement > Safety & Security > Home Security & * Surveillance > Complete Surveillance Systems
- #1 in Electronics > Security & Surveillance
- #1 in Camera & Photo > Surveillance Cameras
I should be receiving it tomorrow and will let you know how easy the setup is in real life, host an unboxing video and some sample real life pictures. I also opted in for the 7-day CVR for an additional $99 providing me a 1-year contract. I'm excited!

The new Dropcam Pro is a tremendously easy to setup and offers great audio/video quality for consumers and small businesses. The addition of Bluetooth LE, dual-band Wi-Fi, and a wider field of view are all worthy updates that help make the Dropcam Pro one of the best Wi-Fi video monitoring systems available. It truly makes >checking in on any location as simple as can be thanks to the iOS and Android mobile apps.
