Although probably still best known for its analogue cameras from years back, the KODAK brand has returned once again in various digital forms of late. Late last year we wrote about its new virtual reality cameras including the Kodak PixPro VR360.
Now courtesy of investment company Liz Invest there are a number of indoor and outdoor motorised cameras and sensor systems which are available under a new brand, KODAK Smart Security System cameras. These can all be controlled and viewed directly through the free to download KODAK Security mobile app.
Available immediately from Amazon and Box.co.uk are the EP101WG (Outdoor Camera) priced at £169.99 RRP while the IP101WG (Indoor Camera, pictured above) comes in various versions – the stand alone camera at £129.99 RRP, the starter kit for £149.99 RRP and the premium kit for £199.99 RRP.
The indoor starter and premium kits comprise the IP101WG full HD motorised camera alongside additional security sensors. The starter kit comes with one door sensor and a remote control while the Premium Kit comes with two door sensors, one motion sensor and a remote control. The outdoor EP101WG (pictured below) is encased in a dome, ensuring it’s waterproof and weather protected for use in any environment.
Each camera can be remotely controlled by the KODAK Security app, available for both Android and iOS smartphones. This enables you to preset three sensor positions when using either the IP101WG or EP101WG camera. If one sensor is triggered, the camera will automatically turn to the corresponding sensor. Up to six sensors can be added to either camera.
Both the IP101WG and EP101WG cameras deliver 1080p full HD quality video direct to your smartphone or tablet. Using the app, you can also control the pan and tilt of the camera enabling you to view anyone in the perimeter of your home or to watch activity within a specific room.
In addition, the indoor camera has two way audio, meaning it can be used as a parental camera for child or pet locations – while the outdoor camera contains a mic which records audio alongside the video. Recordings can be saved onto an internal SD card, or can be linked to a Google Cloud account – all without the need for an additional subscription.
Says David Haddad, CEO, KODAK Smart Security Systems:
