Two years on from putting the ‘hot’ in thermostat, Yves Behar’s Fuseproject studio has restyled the humble home security cam into something altogether more appealing. Hive View is a highly versatile remote sentry that can be table or wall-mounted, or disconnected from its stand and positioned just about anywhere you please – the magnetic connector naturally also serves as the camera’s power supply. Available in white and champagne gold, or black and brushed copper, the sound- and motion-sensitive HD device has a 130-degree field of view, and has an automatic night vision range of up to 16ft.
