Wireless video camera, SKYCAM, has 30 days left in Indiegogo campaign


I knew my wireless video camera needed to be affordable, easy to use, yet still high quality. That’s why I hope to crowdfund the money necessary for SKYCAM.

SKYCAM is the wireless video camera that allows users to monitor their home, office, and more via their smartphone, tablet or PC via Skype. Founder, Roger Yiu, offers owners the opportunity to access their video stream from anywhere, at anytime, for a wallet-friendly price. In order to raise the funds to mass produce this wireless video camera, SKYCAM is running a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.

SKYCAM is the only IP camera that uses Skype, the popular voice over IP platform, as its DNS server. This unique feature is very beneficial for a variety of reasons. First, since Skype is a free service, there are no monthly DNS fees like other wireless security cameras. Users only have to pay the one-time-flat fee of $99 for the SKYCAM on Indiegogo. Second, Skype allows users to monitor their camera’s feed from their smartphone, tablet, or PC. Third, Skype can be trusted to provide high quality connections as a videoconferencing market leader. Whether using SKYCAM for office surveillance, or to communicate with loved ones, users can count on clear video and sound.

Another great aspect of SKYCAM is the easy and quick installation process. After following the four simple steps, owners can set up this standalone IP camera wherever necessary with SKYCAM’s detachable wall mount. While other surveillance cameras require a long tedious setup process that includes router and DNS configuration, force owners to pay monthly DNS charges, and don’t guarantee password security, SKYCAM provides a breath of fresh air. With a one minute installation time, no monthly fees, and security from Skype, this wireless video camera is the obvious choice.

Other functions of SKYCAM include two-way voice communication via the built-in microphone and audio output, night vision, and instant video recording. Whether using SKYCAM for a baby monitor, office surveillance, a front door video phone, or pet babysitting, owners can rely on quality and trustworthy service.

SKYCAM currently is in the middle of its crowdfunding campaign on popular website Indiegogo. “I wanted to bring the next generation of video monitoring to everyone,” says creator Roger Yiu. “I knew my wireless video camera needed to be affordable, easy to use, yet still high quality. That’s why I hope to crowdfund the money necessary for SKYCAM.”

Yiu needs to raise $50,000 on Indiegogo. The funds will go towards the costs of mass producing SKYCAM and other manufacturing logistics. From now until 11:59pm PT on Tuesday, May 28th, funders can take advantage of SKYCAM’s perks on Indiegogo. The first 200 backers can purchase SKYCAM for the early bird special price of $95, after that, the cost will raise to $99, so don’t wait!
