Google cameras to safeguard your home soon
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 USD 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.
