Y-Cam's Security Cameras Might Have Caught SantaY-cam's network attached storage-ready Wi-Fi security cameras provide business or residential customers with a simple way to keep an eye on a property from anywhere in the world. Using a Y-cam Internet security camera, every time someone comes in or out of your house, a motion alert with a photo is sent directly to your mobile device, as the activity happens. The cameras provide high-quality video and night vision up to 15 meters, even in pitch black darkness. The different versions range in cost from $204 to $280, with the more expensive versions being capable of recording directly to an SD card.
One challenge with these and other cameras like them though: how to get power to them? They come with an AC power pack, but if you want to mount these cameras in an unobtrusive place (like a wall or a ceiling) you might face some challenges getting power without having unsightly wires all over the place. Though it doesn't easily solve the unsightly wiring problem, we'd like to see a Power over Ethernet (PoE) option.
