We are all aware of the power of social networks. Well Australian company Hive has extended this into the home security realm.
Hive has attempted to replace the cost of expensive security companies by leveraging the eyes of trusted social networks to a wireless, battery-powered, motion detecting, night vision enabled camera.
At a fraction of the cost of traditional security company, it is easy to install, runs on batteries and is portable enough to travel with you. When the camera senses motion, it gives off an audible tone, and sends the video up to your community or Hive where they can respond to the alert appropriately.
The cool thing about this approach is if you lose your Internet connection Hive’s battery-powered cameras will record and store video locally until connectivity is reestablished.
