Panasonic Wireless Cameras Feed Video to Your Android Phones [CES 2012]

We mosey’d on over to the Panasonic booth at CES today and came across some very interesting products that they are still working on. They’re WiFi cameras that allow you to see video from them directly on your Android device.

More than that you can control the camera (zoom, picture settings, etc.) from your Android device. The two must be on the same WiFi network for it to work but it would be a great home monitoring solution for those who want to check up on their families while they’re away from home.

Aside from the standard point and shoot, Panasonic showed off head cameras with this same functionality. Unfortunately these things were little more than prototypes for the time being but they worked really well and had me ready to throw my money at whoever was willing to give me one. No one was willing to, of course. Check out some quick demo videos above and below.

    “The two must be on the same WiFi network for it to work but it would be a great home monitoring solution for those who want to check up on their families while they’re away from home.” 

    How could you check up on your family if you’re away from home and they have to be on the same wifi network for them to work? Am I understanding this wrong?

    I’ve been doing this for years using IP Cam Viewer Pro.  

    It takes a wee little bit of setup, supports literally hundreds of different cameras — but I use it with Panasonic IP cameras.

      Me too.  Works very well.  One pointed at the front door and one pointed at the back door with pan, tilt, and zoom.

        Between that and “RadioThermostat” most of my I’m away from home, what’s going on at home fears are answered!

    Agreed. How would that work?

    Ok, so I take it this is not a dedicated security camera system, but rather a digital point and shoot type camera that you can hook up to your WiFi to play around with.. Still pretty cool I suppose.
