IoT Home Automation The Next Big Thing For Security Cameras

Remocam, an IoT security camera, says the future is now

SAN FRANCISCO, May 14, 2015 -- Dropcam's debut in 2009 and its rounds of funds and successful acquisition by Nest established a legendary story for the following contenders such as Canary, Piper, and many more DIY home security cameras. Everyone wanted to follow in Dropcam's footsteps. In the course of the last five years since Dropcam's first appearance, home security cameras have been improving. They have become more affordable, easier to setup, and better integrated with their mobile apps, etc. So what's next for home security cameras? Are they dying down? Is the demand still there?


The team of Remocam brought in a new insight into this US home security camera market. The next step for a home security camera, they claim, is Internet of Things (IoT) home automation.

Remocam, an IoT security camera which is currently running an Indiegogo campaign to raise $50,000, claims that it will open a new phase of security cameras, DIY home security cameras with home automation capability. Click here to check out Remocam's Indiegogo Campaign.

One of the founders of Remocam, Paul Lee, says, "In the last few years, DIY home security cameras have made an affordable, easy-to-set-up home security system possible. Not every camera delivers the similar quality of security monitoring, but from $70 to $300, you can place a wireless camera at home by yourself now. Now, people want more from these cameras. They don't just want the camera to watch what's happening at home. Imagine if with this camera, you can turn on and off lights, TVs, and other electronics at home as if you are home. That's what IoT is, what home automation is, and what Remocam is."

Currently Remocam can turn on lights, TVs, and other electronic devices that come with IR remote control. Because of Remocam's IR receiver and release sensors, Remocam can virtually act as a universal remote-control for devices at home. Remocam also offers IR-controlled light bulbs (RemoBulb), power socket (RemoHub), and an automatic pet feeder (RemoPet), along with the camera.

The team's vision doesn't end here. They claim that they plan on integrating IR, RF, and Z-wave technology in the next version of Remocam, so that it will increase the range of devices they can control in homes.
