In June of last year, on a whim and mostly out of boredom, Abuhamdeh mounted his phone next to the register and began to broadcast his day on You Now, a live streaming service. People would walk up and pay, he would ring them up, and then as they left, nail them with a zinger spoken to the camera. But I was nervous, I felt like there were people watching. It was weird.” After a few weeks of broadcasting he began to find his rhythm.
Through motion detection, events are sent to the cloud where they are stored – if you are subscribed to one of their paid plans.
If a customer was in on the joke, Abuhamdeh would banter with them a bit.
He shared stories from his home life, and slowly began to invite fans into it, broadcasting from his apartment, from a cousin’s wedding, while driving in his car or getting a haircut.
For those looking for free Dropcam storage; I have bad news, Camio no longer offers free cloud storage. And while the free ride was fun, I ended up subscribing to a paid plan because I see the value in the software.
Below is my hands-on review of using Camio with Nest Cam.
