The GeckoEye is a new solar powered surveillance camera system that is designed to replace a number of other similar devices with a single solution. It is a two part system that features small 1.7-inch GeckoEye camera units that connect over WiFi or a cellular network to the GeckoEye base station. The camera system can be used for traditional surveillance outside your home/office, to monitor infants, or even on-the-go.

Made of either a durable aluminum or polycarbonate casing, the small GeckoEye cams come with “special mounting features” that allow them to be placed just about “anywhere,” as well as motion detection, a sensitive microphone, and can be powered via the built-in solar panels.

More details below: 

Capable of connecting with up to three GeckoEye cams, the base station is where all of the footage is stored. At this point, it comes with 50GB of free cloud storage, 128GB of onboard memory and a battery that supports up to 240 hours of mobile recording. The base unit also contains a GSM slot so the system can utilize cellular data when a WiFi network isn’t available.

The base station can be accessed via a smartphone app, where users will be able to collect archived footage or watch connect GeckoEye cams live. The system also supports real-time notifications for a number of different things including motion sensor data and archival options.

The GeckoEye camera system is currently seeking $100,000 in funding on Indiegogo. Early backers can opt in for a black polycarbonate version at $189 or the aluminum model for $229.
