These are two unique products so we’re going to take a look at them one by one and see if they’ve got what it takes to protect the people and things that you love.

There are three round stickers–you know the type, the ones that are impossible to get a pair of scissors or a knife under? Well, after five minutes of solid picking I managed to get the package open, and that was the end of my difficulties with this product. From there on in I had a chance to get set up with the Belkin Netcam HD… so if you want to know more about it, read on!
