Internet of Things has really started to catch on as of late, and there are all sorts of cameras out there that you can use with your phone to monitor your home, or office as well as the surroundings of either place. This D-Link WiFi-Enabled Security camera can do just that. This particular model doesn't work real well at night, so it would be better indoors. But there are other models that work great outside at night.
