Have you ever gone to the grocery store and struggled to remember whether you need to buy milk? You probably bought a gallon just to be safe, only to find out that you still had half a jug left.

British company Smarter wants to keep you from buying unneeded food ever again. The engineers from across pond have designed a wireless camera that can be mounted inside any fridge via a simple suction cup. Once set up, the camera can stream footage of the interior of the fridge—at up to 1080p resolution—straight to your smartphone.

The Smarter Fridge Cam can be mounted in any fridge via a suction cup.

Besides giving you a peek at your fridge contents on request, the Fridge Cam can also alert you (with a picture) when the refrigerator is opened. If you want to keep track of your kids' (or spouse's) eating habits, it's a nifty trick, helping you keep tabs on what's being eaten and when.

There are more than a few smart fridges with cameras on the horizon, but they tend to be way more expensive than their dumber counterparts. The Fridge Cam is a simpler alternative that can make any fridge a smart fridge (in this one, very specific way).

The Fridge Cam is slated to ship in the summer of 2016, and is expected to cost around $100.
