Surveillance cameras for the home have come a long way in term of functionality. They can be accessed via the Internet, stream real-time video to your smartphone, and be panned, tilted and zoomed in for better look. People Power, however, may have stumbled onto something completely new: Its Presence 360 is a “robot” that uses a spare smartphone as its camera and swivels a full 360 degrees. By downloading the Presence app on an unused smartphone and cradling that device in Presence 360’s adjustable arms, you can monitor you home and loved ones in 360-degrees, control viewing angles remotely and automatically receive motion detected video alerts when they’re away from home.
You can also customize how long the camera remains at each vantage point: For example, set Presence 360 to automatically pan to the front door for 15 seconds, the kitchen window or any other area of the home. Presence 360 cycles through those vantage points automatically to search for intruders or activity – recording video the instant motion is detected. When motion is detected, a Presence Video Alert of the activity is sent straight to your smartphone, as well as to your trusted circle of family and friends.
“In an era where technology is helping office workers make impressive strides in productivity, we still find a big need for technology that lets consumers know what’s happening at home when they can’t be there,” says Gene Wang, CEO and co-founder of People Power. “Unless you’ve budgeted for a complicated and expensive home surveillance system, you may never know what’s happening until it’s too late. By revealing those nagging blind spots, Presence 360 brings people peace of mind, and is paving the way for a new era of lifestyle security.”
The Presence Security Pack extends the value of Presence 360. It works through the Presence app and combines entry, motion, water, humidity, temperature and touch sensors to create a complete home monitoring solution.
The Presence 360 will be priced at $99 for its 6-week IndeGoGo Campaign. Shipment date for IndieGoGo backers is set for December 2016.
