Soon, Google CCTV cameras may secure your house from intruders.


The multinational corporation is reportedly planning to buy home security camera firm Dropcam.

San Francisco-based Dropcam offers a $150 internet-connected camera.

The camera is controlled from a special app.

Using the special app, users can see live feeds, zoom and record footage.

It also has a night vision mode, two-way talk back and digital zoom, said a report on tech blog The Information.

"Google's Nest division is plotting a move into the home-security market and has considered acquiring connected camera-maker Dropcam to accelerate the push, according to several people close to Google," the blog reported.

Google has recently bought a thermostat company Nest.

The Google move comes as Apple is preparing to turn the iPad into a universal 'home remote' that could control everything from TVs to washing machines and lights, the blog claimed.
