[video] WTF: Man watches robbers in his home from iPhone

Vodpod videos no longer available.
That’s what happened to Vince Hunter of Dallas last week as he and his wife were visiting family 1,500 miles away in Connecticut.

On Friday, while Hunter was out pumping gas, a $4.99 iPhone app called iCam sent Hunter a text message that the motion detectors in his house had been activated. Using his phone, he was able to watch live video captured by webcams he’d installed around his home.

“I check the footage, and see in real time guys in this area, and they’re kind of hunched over. They’d just broken the glass. I said holy cow, I gotta call 911,” he said.

You know, it was surreal. It really was. The first thing I couldn’t believe is that we could do this on our cell phone. Really? A cell phone?” he said.

The Hunter’s home had been broken into before, so they had invested in an elaborate security system. Three different cameras allow Hunter to watch surveillance video from any computer. But with the iCam app for his iPhone, he can watch the video from anywhere in the world.

This time, Hunter watched as the robbers ran away empty-handed. But his neighbor wasn’t as lucky.

Police believe the pair cleaned out her house just minutes before reaching the Hunters’ home.

“They’re just hoodlums! The fact that they just keep doing this over and over … they have to be stopped,” said burglary victim Julie McDonald.
