It was a minor dissapointment that very few IP camera companies appeared at CES 2011, but I did come across a newcomer with a unique product, the EyeSee from Jablocom.
The EyeSee runs on GSM rather than WiFi as many IP cameras do, and it has a very sensitive motion detector that is activated by sound, external alert, or movement. The pictures can be sent via e-mail, SMS call, MMS call, or accessible via a web server.
This opens up IP cameras to remote places where internet access is not available but still has GSM 3G access. For example, a vacation home, a remote traffic cam location and any other place that was impossible to get an internet connect too or the costs were prohibitive.
The camera’s list price is $499 and the U.S. distributor can be reached at (888) 633-7985. More information is available on their website at www.eyeseecamera.com.
