Starting this month, all eleven member companies of Catalyst AV will sell the Dropcam Pro. Dropcam is a cloud-based Wi-Fi video monitoring camera and cloud service. It includes free live streaming, intelligent alerts, and mobile and web apps.
The Dropcam Pro delivers a 130-degree field-of-view, granting the ability to capture an entire room without the need to pan or zoom. Additional capabilities include 8x zoom and notification alerts. The unit has an MSRP of $199.
”Dropcam is a significant addition to our app-based assortment of control products,” said Wally Whinna, Catalyst AV board member and principal of Allnet Distributing. “These products offer integrators new security solutions that can be implemented in jobs where they would have had no sales opportunity with conventional products.”
