Today a new version of Dropcam for Android is hitting Google Play. This one heads up to version 3.0 and is sporting some new features and design enhancements to make for a better user experience. In addition to a new activity feed and customizable alerts, setting up a Dropcam from your Android device is now much easier as well.

Here's whats new:

  • An All-New Activity Feed: View and filter recorded video by the specific activities that Dropcam learns about over time.
  • Customizable Activity Categories and Alerts: Manage labels, colors and alerts for learned activities on-the-go.
  • Fast Mobile Setup: Set up Dropcam Pro wirelessly using your Android device.

Those who use the cloud recording feature can now review videos more easily in the new Activity Feed. You'll also be able to receive more relevant notifications with the new customizable alert settings.

A note for mobile setup as well — currently only users with a Nexus 5, or a Samsung device running Android 4.3 or later, will be able to use this feature.

I love the technology that allows this. Easier to appreciate, when you're old.

Definitely planning on getting one of these as a baby monitor in the future. Considering also using some for home security; how is it powered, by 24/7 wiring, or using a charging function?


I just started using one as a baby monitor and it works great.


I'll have to look into these, thanks Connectedly!
