Blog waves Bye to Beta

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Almost a year ago now we wrote about, a then fantastic new beta service that enabled a simple way to monitor your Y-cam cameras live feed and be instantly alerted to any motion, plus some pretty cool social compatibility that connected your camera to your favourite social sites. Today they have made an exciting announcement regarding the removal from beta mode and their fantastic new premium services.

This news in itself is great however as a special thanks to their current beta users are offering a whopping 6 months free subscription to any of their plans, meaning you could have up to 100k of images per day and infinite rewind for 6 months, completely free!

Don’t worry though if you have not previously signed up to their subscriptions, as their new plans start from as little as $3 per month which offers 1k images per day and a whole weeks of rewind.

Interested? If you would like to sign up or find out a little more about please head over to or continue reading ‘Socialise your Y-cam with’.

The perfect topping of Security for Domino’s Pizza

Monday, January 9th, 2012

Domino’s Pizza is a global organisation which operates over 600 company-owned and franchised stores across the UK and Ireland. They are responsible for delivering the best possible service to their store managers and franchises, ensuring that their restaurants are both efficient and achieving the highest possible profits whilst maintaining the representation of a quality brand – so how did a Y-cam centralised monitoring solution help Domino’s achieve this goal?

With Y-cam, Domino’s have been able to offer their managers and franchises a quick and easy monitoring solution that combines cutting edge technology with simplicity and allows each store to take control of their own security at an affordable cost.

Domino’s needed a solution that would cover a number of requirements; customer and staff safety was paramount due to the unsociable operational hours and the location of a number of their stores. Each solution needed to be simple enough for the in house IT teams to install, flexible and reflect Domino’s ethos – Y-cam IP cameras fitted the bill.

These installations are already showing results; Naz Ahmed, IT installation manager, explains:

“We have suffered from a number of incidents where the Y-cam cameras have helped out. We’ve had people coming in, threating to rob the store and a couple of these have led to prosecution. The main advantage is that the camera is a deterrent, so if anyone is thinking about chancing it the cameras put them off.”

Domino’s now has installed over 200 Y-cam cameras within their stores, providing coverage and combating crime, reducing vandalism and ensuring the on-going safety of their staff and customers within the world’s leading pizza delivery company.
