Currently ready for pre-order, the miniature, magnetically mounted and completely self-contained Homeboy is a miniature security camera that can notify via SMS, Twitter or Facebook. The device, which remains charged for up to three months, allows you to also have friends keep an eye on things. Article on the device here.
The Homeboy system features the world's first wire-free, long-life camera in production paired with intuitive mobile apps and an open platform that communicates with other smart home services and devices.
Homeboy is incredibly simple to use. You can use Homeboy to check in on your home when you’re away, invite your trusted social network to watch your back when you’re not around, or call on the professionals to monitor it 24/7.
