Abstract

Disclosed is a novel remote monitoring system comprising an array of webcams built into the inside of an Internet-connected refrigerator. The system includes a method to integrate the webcams in the appliance with a remote device (e.g., smart phone, tablet, etc.) allowing a user to remotely view the contents of the appliance. Using gestures on the mobile device, the user can view the remote image from different angles.
