Today Dropcam released a free update to their iOS app which allows users to turn schedule when their WiFi video camera turns on and off based on “pre-determined settings such as location, time, or day.”  Perfect for checking in on your home or business when you are away.

Dropcam offers a few real-life scarios where this new functionality can be helpful:

  • Set Dropcam to turn off when you return home and turn on when you leave
  • Set Dropcam to turn on and off at set times within a day
  • Turn Dropcam on for a period of days while you are away for an extended period of time such as during a vacation

This app is designed to work seamlessly with Dropcam HD, “the only Wi-Fi video monitoring camera that offers truly simple and fast setup with intelligent monitoring features so people can check in on the things they care about from anywhere in the world 24/7.”  You can grab a Dropcam HD for just $150.
