RCN Launches Remote Video Monitoring Service

RCN launched a home monitoring service that allows its cable modem customers to remotely view real-time video of their home or business from any browser on the Net. RCN's WebWatch system allows customers place up to four small wireless cameras throughout their homes or businesses. When away from the home or business, they log in to a secure website through the Internet to view real-time, streaming videos. Customers can view one camera at a time or all four simultaneously. The video can also be recorded for later viewing.

RCN WebWatch leverages software developed by Casero and is based on RCN's Wi-Fi 802.11g wireless broadband home networking package. The service is available to RCN Internet subscribers for an additional $9.95 per month. Included in the monthly service fee is one wireless web camera.
