    And some info from the past like the first totally wiress web cam I've ever seen.

    NEATGEAR Arlo This is a different kind of security camera. It's battery powered and motion-activated. It doesn't need a power cord so it's really wireless. That means it can go in locations you normally could not mount a security camera. It can even be mounted outside. The flat bottom on the camera lets it sit on any flat surface, or use the magnetic mounting bracket included. It lets you aim the camera exactly where you want. View the output of the camera within the Netgear app on your smart phone, or tablet to get the best placement. Battery life lasts 4-6 months with normal usage. Batteries are not rechargeable, but are easily replaceable. A single Arlo camera starts at about $180 and that includes the base unit. If you want multiple cameras, they only need one base station and it's cheaper to buy them in bundles. Details are at the company website:
