Hi, my name is Evan Tree and I’m the Chief Products Officer of Logitech’s WiLife business unit, which is located in Draper, Utah. I joined Logitech in 2007 (when WiLife was acquired) and love living in Utah’s Wasatch mountains. I spend my free time with my family and you can often find us skiing, snow boarding, hiking, golfing or fishing.
While our WiLife security cameras are certainly helpful in capturing footage of that guy swiping your new Callaway golf clubs out of the garage, we’ve discovered that they have many other uses. According to a recent Logitech survey fielded in the U.S., 76% of parents say they would be less stressed if they could check in on their kids, nanny or babysitter via the Internet when they’re not home. It’s not only comforting to know that the kids are safely home from school, it’s also good to know how many of their friends are tagging along and raiding the refrigerator. Oh, and that big stain on the living room carpet that Johnny blamed on the family dog? Well, it’s soda pop from the food fight.
Speaking of Fido, the study also revealed that half of all pet owners worry about the well-being of their pets while they’re away from home and 94% say that they believe their pets have more fun when they’re home alone. I had a guy once tell me that he would pay $1,000 to find out which one of his beloved three dogs was chewing the legs off the coffee table in the family room If he’d had a camera installed, he’d have his answer.
I’ll be sharing some of my favorite videos in upcoming posts. In the meantime, feel free to tell me about yours by posting a comment.
