Abode Edge Camera Offers DIY AI Edge Technologies
Abode Systems has introduced its Abode Edge Camera that it says was collaboratively developed with Xailient, an AI technology company, and Morse Micro, a Wi-Fi silicon provider.
SAN FRANCISCO—Abode Systems, a provider of DIY smart security products, has announced its new Abode Edge Camera.
The newly announced camera was developed in tandem with Xailient, a provider computer-based AI technologies, and Morse Micro, a Wi-Fi HaLow silicon vendor. According to the company, the Abode Edge Camera is the first wireless home security camera with AI edge technologies.
“Nearly every home security camera is facing the wrong direction,” says Chris Carney, founder and CEO of Abode Systems. “Technology constraints have limited home security cameras in two major ways: a field of view that remains fixed and facing away from the home and rampant connectivity issues if the camera is deployed too far away. In nearly all of these cases, that leaves what matters most – the home – completely out of frame or with an offline camera. At Abode, we believe security cameras should keep an eye on what is most important. Together with our partners, we are breaking the chains that tether security cameras to an outdated viewpoint. The Abode Edge Camera enables a new era of home security camera solutions capable of being deployed at edge-of-property to bring the home, and what matters most, back into focus.”
Abode Edge Camera Delivers 1.5 Mile Camera Range
The West Coast manufacturer states that its latest product provides homeowners with a combination of a 1.5 mile transmission range and long battery life. Through these features that include the Wi-Fi HaLow technologies that are capable of overcoming the limitations of traditional Wi-Fi by operating on narrow frequency bands that enables the camera’s wireless signals to penetrate obstacles to deliver connectivity in a range of settings, including noisy environments. Adobe Systems emphasizes these benefits offer 10 times the range, 100 times the coverage area, and 1,000 times the volume of traditional Wi-Fi technologies.
Upon release, Abode Systems boasts theAbode Edge Camera will be the first Wi-Fi CERTIFIED HaLow camera with plug-and-play features to seamlessly connect to an existing Wi-Fi home network.
Some of the other features the AI camera provides homeowners include a 6,000 mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery that is capable of battery life performance up to one year on a single charge, and an integrated PIR motion sensor that in combination with AI detection, alerts the camera to activity that triggers the recording of critical events. When motion is not detected, the camera automatically enters into a deep sleep mode, preserving precious battery.
Abode Systems points out the new Edge Camera integrates with any existing Abode home security system or it can be deployed as a standalone solution. To support the launch of the new camera, Abode is also announcing the introduction of a new, single-camera video plan designed to help users maximize coverage. The Abode single-camera Video Plan provides users with AI-enabled Smart Detect, on-demand live view, and up to 10 days of timeline from which captured video clips can be viewed and downloaded. The Abode single-camera video plan will be available to users for $3.99 per month.
In addition, to support Abode users who would like to deploy more than one camera, the Abode Standard Plan provides the same 10-day timeline to view and download recorded clips, live viewing, and AI-enabled Smart Detect across unlimited cameras for $6.99/month.
The Abode Edge Camera is expected to launch sometime during the first quarter (Q1) 2024 with an MSRP of $199.99.
