In January 2014, Piper ushered in a new standard of home monitoring, security and automation, making it easier than ever to connect via mobile device to what's important.

piper_nvPiper expands on that with the introduction of Piper nv in January 2015. Piper nv boasts 180-degree night vision (the widest field of night vision view available in the market), advanced camera resolution and a faster ARM processor to the already comprehensive Piper feature set.

Still accessible and controlled by your mobile device, Piper nv is ideal for those looking to enhance their engagement with their homes and families while away--night or day!

Piper nv's features include:

Night Vision: 180-degree day/night vision--the widest field of view available in the market--offers a clear and complete view of your home no matter the time of day. Night vision kicks in automatically once the room starts getting dark.

Advanced camera resolution: the 3.4 megapixel camera sensor ensures you don't miss any details!
Faster ARM processor: allows for additional high-performance computing, which will enable advanced software enhancements and eventually allow Piper to take a more central role in the smart home of tomorrow.
