Versatile Security Cameras

The Butterfly Can Detect Movement and Switch on Its Camera Accordingly

— May 24, 2014 — Tech
Butterflye is a discreet home camera and surveillance device designed for monitoring security in your home. In addition to performing this important task, the Butterflye’s easy and unintimidating functions also make it fun to use like a toy.

The Butterflye’s hidden camera may well capture a burglar stealing your TV or your teenager stealing a beer from the fridge, but it could also take pictures of your cats acting silly.

Butterflye also has special sensors that allow it to detect changes in the room’s environment. Its audio, motion and thermal sensors can detect when there’s movement, and the camera is automatically turned on to capture whatever’s happening. Rather than a passive camera that records all day long, this camera only records when it’s useful to do so.
