Lorex Home Video Monitoring System with Skype

by Mark R

I have reported on Lorex’s products before, like that Baby Monitor a while back. I was impressed with the ease of their technology, and it is imitated and taken a step further with the Lorex Home Video Monitoring System (LW2020/LW2030 Series).

This Live Connect allows the user to connect a wireless Gateway device to their home network and plug in the camera it comes with. When the handheld monitor is turned on, the user has the camera’s image, instantly!

That is good for when you need a baby monitor or secret surveillance camera, but what makes this really neat is that the camera can be connected to Skype. This means that the user can monitor their camera from any Skype-connected PC, Mac computer, and it also works on the iPhone 3GS/4, iPad, and iPad 2.

If you want to, you can expand the system with up to four cameras on the handheld monitor. If you have a microSD card, you can even take some pictures with it on the handheld monitor.

In other words, the user can monitor anything from just about anywhere. It was a little tricky for me to set this up with Skype, but only because I have little Skype experience.

If you are needing something like this, head here to find out more information about it. If you want to buy it, you can find it on Amazon for about $399.95.

I wonder if the Lorex video monitoring system’s live viewing is jerky and not get a smooth picture when sent over the internet. I have a network cctv installed at home but the wireless transfer rate really sucks…
