Created by StarVedia, the IP camera integrates a number of innovative technologies aimed to enhance camera performance by means other than purely improving processor power.
In order to reduce actual hardware volume for cost-efficiency and easier integration, Wi-Fi connectivity is implemented on the camera board itself, rather than as a separate module. To further reduce form factor, and to improve hardware stability and durability, instead of utilizing mechanical IR-Cut filtering (ICR) to adjust the different focal levels of a single lens required for daylight recording and night vision, day and night functionality are separated into 2 lenses in a dual-lens design.
Product provides truly universal plug-and-play functionality – utilizing StarVedia’s Auto-IP Solution. StarVedia demonstrates the extent of its “software-savvy” in the camera’s approach to peer-to-peer video streaming, which reduces latency by directly transmitting video up to 20 users without passing through a server. In addition, this design secures data from third-party access.
Without requiring end-users to engage in the complicated configuration, the camera can easily connect to WiFi by scanning QR code which has been generated by the APP. This level of user convenience stands out in the home camera market, which as of yet still lacks maturity in its delivery to non-technical consumers. Also support for data storage to Micro SD card, NAS device and Dropbox for cloud recording.
Recognizing the importance of interoperability, StarVedia has initiated efforts to include Z-Wave connectivity in future offerings, directing their product development toward the provision of Smart Home Solutions on a Camera (SoC). Products of this category build the features of a smart home gateway into an IP camera device – with inclusion of all Zwave aware sensors and devices.
