Big brother ‘Beamer’ watches your house

BMW GB has announced the latest in-car technology that enables the owner of a BMW 5 Series to keep a watchful eye on their house – even if they are hundreds of miles away.

Using the BMW’s iDrive controller and display screen, a driver can access a menu that will display live pictures of their house, via internet-based webcams. The same security function can also be used to open and close windows or the front door with a few clicks of the controller for added peace of mind.

The concept is based on an advanced version of BMW Online, the internet-based in-car portal currently available as an option on the 5, 6 and 7 Series models. BWM Online allows users to access to services, including exchanging emails and receiving information on hotels and restaurants, all via the iDrive controller and display screen.
