Home SecuCam serves as a blueprint for integrated security monitoring via a variety of protocols, including wireless and mobile networks, enabling cost- effective audio/video home security that is easily adaptable by customers to meet their individual requirements. OmniVision's solution requires no expert knowledge for installation and does not require an IP router. To meet the requirements of the security market, Home SecuCam operates at very low power, enabling it to remain in standby mode for months on battery power. With up to 16 channels, it can support multiple cameras to cover multiple areas and can be daisy chained to have longer distance coverage over a greater area.
The prototype of the Home SecuCam reference design being demonstrated at ISC West (OmniVision booth # 7087) uses chipset solutions that provide MPEG4 compression and RF 2.4G wireless networking. The Home SecuCam solution is also suitable for interfacing to a modem, Ethernet connection or a GSM/3G mobile network for remote monitoring.
OmniVision Technologies designs and markets high-performance semiconductor image sensors. Its OmniPixel and CameraChip products are highly integrated single-chip CMOS image sensors for mass-market consumer and commercial applications such as mobile phones, digital still cameras, security and surveillance systems, interactive video games, PCs and automotive imaging systems.
