The MobiCam Digital appears to be an upgrade to Mobi Technologies’ MobiCam AV which, quite frankly, looks right at home somewhere in the mid 90’s. So besides a much needed facelift and a move away from an analog video signal, the MobiCam Digital allows you to remotely monitor up to 3 different cameras from a distance of up to 450 feet. The cordless monitor features a 2.4 inch LCD pivoting display and its rechargeable lithium-ion battery is good for a solid 8 hours.
The cameras feature a wide angle lens for capturing as much as the space they’re monitoring as possible, and a set of IR LEDs circling the lens provides visibility in complete darkness up to 30 feet away. The receiver/monitor also includes an AV hookup for connecting it to a TV, and an optional MobiCam Internet Kit will broadcast the live feeds online, allowing them to be monitored anywhere in the world you have a net connection. The MobiCan Digital ‘starter kit’ includes the monitor and a single camera for $189.99, while additional cameras are $99.95 a piece. And if you opt for the internet kit you can add an additional $59.95 to your bill.
