Sunnyvale, CA - Monday, May 21st, 2018
Ooma, Inc., a smart communications platform for businesses and consumers, today announced the Ooma Butterfleye, a smart video security camera with advanced features including facial recognition, onboard memory and battery backup for recording during power and internet outages, seven days of free cloud storage, and more.
The compact and unobtrusive Ooma Butterfleye (home security camera), available now in white or black, can be placed anywhere, connecting through Wi-Fi without the need for a base station. The “set it and forget it” design allows all configuration, control and video viewing through the convenient Ooma Butterfleye mobile app for iPhone and Android.
Ooma Butterfleye is the newest offering from Ooma Home, an innovative home security and monitoring platform (residential security system) that provides comprehensive do-it-yourself protection through sensors for detecting motion, the opening of doors and windows, water leaks, smoke and the opening of garage doors.
Industry leading features of the Ooma Butterfleye include:
Ooma Butterfleye automatically records video clips in full high-definition whenever the camera detects motion, a loud noise or a face. The clips run for 20 seconds when the camera is plugged into AC power, and 10 seconds when running on battery.
“To put it simply, Ooma Butterfleye is eyes where you are not,” said Ben Nader, general manager of video solutions at Ooma. “Now you can know what happens at your home or business when you’re away, through a next-generation security camera that’s easy to set up, easy to place wherever it’s needed, easy to use, and smart enough to limit false alarms.
Ooma Butterfleye brings new depth to Ooma Home, integrating with the platform’s other sensors to tell the whole of story of what’s happening when users are away. For example, an Ooma Home motion sensor can trigger Ooma Butterfleye to make a recording, so users have visual confirmation of any activity. There are multiple options for receiving alerts, including text messages, push notifications and even automated phone calls. And Ooma Home is the only home security solution offering Remote 911™, where users can call through a mobile phone from anywhere in the world to reach the local 911 operators for their home address.
