We test the Dropcam Echo camera
We've recently received another product meant for those who wish to keep an eye on their homes or loved ones while away. Dropcam offers two networked cameras, and sent us their higher-end Dropcam Echo unit to check out. Unlike the basic, $200 Dropcam, the $279 Echo gets a microphone, light sensor and motion sensor, and can be set up to send notifications to users of motion or sound. We'll learn how well that and a companion iPhone app work in a review of the Dropcam Echo.
