December 30, 2014, Taipei Taiwan – SpotCam, the cloud home monitoring service startup, announces a new Motion Masking feature for its SpotCam Wi-Fi home monitoring camera. Found in professional security camera systems, SpotCam’s new motion masking feature, attained by updating to the latest firmware, allows users to configure the camera to only monitor motions for a specified area.
Reduce False Alarms
Users can now tell the SpotCam, which offers 24 hours of cloud based security video storage for free, to ignore different areas of the camera’s view, such as a window, ensuring they only receive notifications that matter via email or the mobile app. Motion detection alerts are only triggered if there are motions in the unmasked part of the camera view.
“The Motion Masking feature is useful when you are monitoring your home or office and you do not want to receive a notification every time a bird flies by the window,” says Jacky Lin, CEO of SpotCam. “By adding this advanced feature, we are further proving our commitment to provide professional-level security camera features for an entry-level price.”
Simple to Setup, Simple to Use
With an incredibly easy setup, SpotCam makes it easy to check up on loved ones from anywhere. A cloud based approach combined with iOS and Android apps means it’s easy to see what’s going on at home from a computer or smartphone.
Strong Surveillance / Night Vision Camera
While it can function in a variety of ways, SpotCam excels at home surveillance and monitoring with superior night vision camera performance, motion detection with instant notification, and free 24 hour video playback right out of the box. With these functions SpotCam is a perfect video baby monitor or wireless home security camera.
