The good: The Dropcam Pro improves on the image and two-way talk feature of the original Dropcam HD. It's easy to use and set up, and you can view a remote video feed over the Internet or on your iOS or Android mobile device via free Dropcam apps. New zoom/enhance feature works well; no service fee for basic live viewing; and the addition of Bluetooth makes setup even easier and will allow you to connect optional home-monitoring accessories in the future.
The bad: You may experience some lag with the video and audio, depending on the speed of your Internet service. PC-free setup isn't available for Android devices at launch. Camera isn't weather-proof and can't be placed outside.
The bottom line: The Dropcam Pro dramatically improves on the company's already impressive previous generation wireless home-monitoring camera.
