Vue Wireless Overview

Author: John Honovich, Published on Feb 16, 2009

This product, from Vue, is a kit for consumers to easily and inexpensively set up video monitoring. What's different is that the $99 cameras are battery operated and wireless. You can stick them wherever you want and access them remotely through Vue's managed service (a review on this with more details). The huge drawback with the batteries is that it lasts 1 year but only only if you watch for 10 minutes per day. As such, it only records or streams when you are connected to it or on a schedule you choose. It does not do motion detection nor can you use it for general motion based recording. It's a beta release and they have some VC funds to continue development so it could evolve into something interesting. It's worth keeping an eye on but little threat or opportunity today.
