This camera not just allows you to record and play back the videos of the supervised area, but also gives you a push notification when detects some unexpected action in the area.

Just download apps like ‘Cloud Print’ or ‘Print Central Pro’ and start printing the doc files, SMS thread, e-mails, contacts, etc. from your phone, without getting wired with the printer. This information can also be saved on your computer clipboard before printing and can be shared with any other Wi-Fi or Bluetooth enabled device.
