Motorola Wireless Camera HMW1010 (http://rbi.ims.ca/4919-547). Added to a home monitoring and control system, this wireless camera provides real-time viewing for both inside and outside the home. Since it is wireless, installation is simplified and the units allow viewing in otherwise wiring-inaccessible locations. The camera captures still and video images and sends them or a text message alert to a cell phone or e-mail. Alternatively, the images are stored on a hard drive for later viewing. The full-color camera has built-in motion detection and a microphone to transmit sound. The HMVC3050, a Day/Night version captures color still images and video in low light conditions — even in the dark.
