    Pay me a £1000 and I’d still not have one at home.
    You've got a camera switch and a mute button on it.

    We still use it for family zoom calls. Like someone else said, good for kids when running in and out of the living room. When not in use we unplug it from the wall, that satisfies the security aspect for me.
    So which services can you use it with? Any? Can I hook it to Signal/Skype/Teams etc? (edited)

    Regular price now. But best device for video calls IMO. Especially if you have kids and you can't keep them in the front of a tablet or phone, this camera follows them. Good also for people with limitation, simple use with voice command. I use it very often with my parents who live abroad.

    does it work with WhatsApp
    Yes. But you need to set it up with Facebook first. After that, it is up to you if you use Messenger or WhatsApp. (edited)

    Will this allow Zuckerberg to spy on me watching TV in my underpants eating Wotsits?
    Sure, especially that it's such an interesting sight.

    Sure, the one thing I really want to do right now is put a big ultrawide camera with mic on my TV from Facebook.

    I understand that none of us actually have privacy if we're online in any form, doesn't mean I wan't to give that info to Facebook though. I'm fine with Google taking it, as all advertisers get is a randomised ID with my interests attached. Facebook don't care anywhere near as much about data.
    You forgot to mention there is a camera shutter and a button to mute the microphone.
