Although the room was pitch-black, Dropcam cameras have night-vision which allowed Swaminarayan to see the burglar's every move.
Swaminarayan said he watched as the invader grabbed his electronic equipment, so he tapped into one of the camera’s loudspeakers and screamed. “I simply told him, ‘I can see you, please, leave my home,’” he recalled.
