The Samsung SmartCam HD Outdoor and SmartCam HD bring even more versatility and peace-of-mind, right to consumers' homes

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Samsung Techwin America, a leader in consumer video monitoring and security products, today introduced two new Wi-Fi IP cameras to its extensive home security lineup. Samsung's new SmartCam HD and SmartCam HD Outdoor offer 1080p Full HD streaming and 128 degree ultra-wide angle lenses, giving consumers the ability to remotely monitor activity - both indoor and out - with full detail and clarity, via any computer or mobile device with no additional monthly video storage or monitoring fees.

"Being able to remotely monitor activity outside the home or business simply and easily with great clarity is now possible for today's consumer," said Mike Palazzolo, vice president sales and marketing, consumer video monitoring and security products, Samsung Techwin America. "With the SmartCam HD Outdoor, consumers who rely on WiFi IP cameras are no longer limited to use just within the home."

Samsung's new SmartCam offerings provide consumers with the peace-of-mind knowing both the inside and outside of their home are secure, ensuring a safe environment for the entire family.

The Samsung SmartCam HD was created with a sleek and stylish design allowing for placement anywhere in the home. The SmartCam HD is also wall-mountable for flexibility in placement and viewing.

Designed to withstand the elements, the SmartCam HD Outdoor was engineered by Samsung with a dual-component design.  The weatherproof camera is placed outside while the power and Wi-Fi module stay inside. The camera and power/Wi-Fi component are connected with a simple network cable connection. This unique design allows the camera to have a small & discrete profile, eliminates the need to have an electrical outlet outside, and brings the Wi-Fi module inside within the range of a router, retaining a strong signal to the receiver.

Advanced Features

The SmartCam HD Outdoor and SmartCam HD Wi-Fi IP cameras bring advanced features and specifications to consumers, ensuring a vastly superior viewing experience. With a 2MP, 1/2.8-inch CMOS sensor and IR cut filter, the SmartCam HD and HD Outdoor offer superb detail no matter how dimly lit the environment may be. The 1/2.8‑inch CMOS sensor allows a large amount of light to be captured yielding more dynamic colors and details in the video compared to a smaller size sensor. The IR cut filter provides true day and night viewing to the user and both models come with a night vision mode, with the SmartCam HD providing a range of 16 feet and the HD Outdoor expanding on that to 50 feet.

Available on both SmartCam HD models is local video recording. With local storage, video can record directly to the camera via a microSD slot, which can support a card up to 32GB. Depending on efficiency and viewing habits, recording can be set for continuous or based on motion events. The locally saved video can also be accessed and viewed remotely from a mobile device.

Both SmartCam HD models can also be set up to automatically record video when motion or audio is detected. Users can select to have alerts of motion or audio detection sent in real time via email or push notifications to their mobile device. A truly valuable feature, this notification technology keeps safety and security paramount as it allows users to instantly respond to any unexpected events, such as a criminal break in, while providing stored video footage of events that can be reviewed and shared.

Low Bandwidth Usage

When using an IP camera, economy of bandwidth is very important. Other leading video cameras are always streaming video to a remote media server, which is necessary based on their infrastructure and business model.  Since video is always streaming, a tremendous amount of bandwidth from the homeowner's network is used and may slow down other devices, like computers, especially if more than one IP camera is installed.  The high bandwidth use may also raise concerns from the Internet Service Provider.

With Samsung's highly efficient bandwidth utilization, and by applying advanced compression technology, the SmartCam HD's and HD Outdoor's video is streamed using only 30 percent of the network bandwidth of other IP cameras.  This highly efficient method of transmitting video combined with the fact that Samsung SmartCam HD cameras only transmit video and use bandwidth when an event occurs or the camera is being viewed from a mobile device, ensures much less strain on the network as well as seamless video transfer even when there is limited network bandwidth available. 

Sets Up In Minutes

The SmartCam HD and HD Outdoor allow for simple setup using Wi-Fi Direct which can be accomplished on any an Android® or iOS® device in a matter of minutes.  Customers only need to download the free SmartCam app and follow the simple wizard‑like process.

Other features on both models include two-way talk and motion zone selection.

The Samsung SmartCam HD and HD Outdoor will be available in March 2014 and retail for $179.00 and $229.00, respectively.
