Sunnyvale, CA - Friday, January 4th, 2019
Ooma, Inc., a smart communications platform for businesses and consumers, today announced Ooma Smart Cam, its next-generation indoor/outdoor high-definition video security camera that’s fully wireless and delivers advanced features, including facial recognition, onboard memory and battery backup, night vision, seven days of free cloud storage, and more.
The compact Ooma Smart Cam (www.ooma.com/home-security/camera/) can be placed anywhere, connecting through Wi-Fi without the need for a base station. The weather resistant camera includes a wall mount, so users aren’t forced to pay extra for mounting. The intuitive design allows for all configuration, control and video viewing through the convenient Ooma Smart Cam mobile app for iPhone and Android.
Ooma Smart Cam is part of Ooma Smart Security, an innovative security and monitoring platform (wireless home security systems) that provides comprehensive do-it-yourself awareness and protection through a range of sensors for detecting motion, the opening of doors and windows, water leaks and the opening of garage doors.
Industry leading features of Ooma Smart Cam include:
“Ooma Smart Cam is an intelligent security camera with the ability to recognize people, listen for unusual noises and detect motion, all while minimizing the hassle of false alarms that create hours of useless recordings,” said Ben Nader, general manager of video solutions at Ooma.“ We designed Ooma Smart Cam with all these features in mind and we made it rugged enough for outdoors yet elegant enough for indoors, so it fits seamlessly into the lives of our customers.”
Ooma Smart Cam also brings depth to Ooma Smart Security, integrating with the platform’s other sensors to tell the whole story of what’s happening when users are away. For example, an Ooma Smart Security motion sensor can trigger Ooma Smart Cam 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 Smart Security is the only comprehensive security solution to offer Remote 911™, where users can call through a mobile phone from anywhere in the world to reach local 911 operators for their home or business address.
