What Charlie does when left alone: image by julieandcharlie, on Flickr Sorry about the jail bars thing! It has to be outside his pen, or he'd eat it! And it needs mains power. It's a smart bit of kit. I can pan and zoom around his pen. It has infrad red so I can check him at night without light. I can set noise and motion alerts. I like it. I have to say, it wasn't very easy to set up, and I had to fiddle a bit. It took me 2 hours, and I'm good with IT. Also, I can't get it working over 3G (yet, I haven't given up) - the picture was taken with me stood in the street, still in range of my wi-fi. It's not perfect, but I like it. I'm not sure yet that it will work over a mobile network though. My main reason for having it - I sleep very deeply, and if Charlie is distressed in the night, I don't hear him without a monitor. It's an iPad/iPhone app based thing, and the app drains battery like there is no tomorrow. But I just plug the iPad in next to my bed, so no probs with that. On the move might be tricky though.
