Kidde Releases RemoteLync Camera for Connected Home Security Solution

The camera can be installed anywhere and sends alerts to one’s smartphone when motion is detected.

MEBANE, N.C. – With home security top of mind for most, Kidde’s expansion of its RemoteLync line makes it even easier to stay connected when away from home, according to the company.

The new Wi-Fi-enabled RemoteLync Camera is cord-free, hub-free and powered by a rechargeable battery that lasts up to three months on a single charge. Its magnetic base enables the camera to be installed nearly anywhere — homeowners aren’t limited by proximity to an electrical outlet — and the camera will adjust to almost any angle.

The camera immediately records video upon sensing motion, and sends users an alert via a free app on their mobile devices. Trusted members of each user’s network also can be notified. The user can then view the video and decide whether to dismiss or save it. Users may also request video clips from five to 30 seconds on demand. The video clips will be available in the app for 12 hours at no charge; during that time users can download directly to a smart device or the cloud and/or share via social media.

The RemoteLync Camera includes technology from the makers of the Homeboy camera. A permission-based geo-arming feature will automatically arm or disarm the camera based on the owner’s mobile device location – arming it when the user leaves home and disarming it on return. The RemoteLync Camera uses a passive infrared sensor to dramatically reduce false alarms. A built-in “pet mode” minimizes the chance of a pet’s movement triggering the device, and it can be customized based on the size of the pet. Detected motion will activate an array of LED lights, which help to illuminate a dark room and allow for clear recording. The lights and optional audible alarm may also deter an intruder.

Kidde is a manufacturer of residential smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms and fire extinguishers.
