If you want your home to be smart and secure, then you really need to have a security monitoring system installed. But sometimes, setting them up can be both costly and not so easy to do, so you could be looking at a much easier solution to implement.


Butterfleye is something that might be of interest, if you’re looking to monitor the activity inside your house or apartment. Described as a smart and versatile monitoring camera, Butterfleye is finally bringing up a solution for not having to record empty rooms for a full 24-hour day. After all, the idea is to be notified whenever something happens or at least to be able to go through all the unusual activity inside your home.

And that’s what Butterfleye seeks to achieve with its cute looking monitoring camera. Butterfleye uses its own Activity Based Recording technology to record when sound or movement is detected, thus saving energy, storage, and bandwidth. So instead of recording hours and hours of useless content, it only records those events that are really important.

When the camera doesn’t record, it moves to a lower power, idle state which allows it to last weeks between charges. Butterfleye is wireless and comes with 12 hours of internal storage space. What’s nice is that it doesn’t always need a WiFi connection to work, so once it’s back online, it will start uploading what it has recorded.

You can use this camera as a general monitoring one or for keeping an eye on your baby or your pets (Related: Baby cam). The companion Butterfleye app is also pretty useful as it comes with a live stream and also notifies you whenever it detects any movement or sounds. Butterfleye boasts with the fact that it ignores false alarms that most other cameras will be triggered by and register as motion. Yes, it can identify familiar faces and can also distinguish between humans and pets (I can’t tell you how big a feature this is).

At the moment, the cheapest price for one unit is $199, which is $60 off the final retail price and come with an estimated delivery in this December.
