Link-U, The World's First Ever 4G Hybrid Connection LTE Enabled Smartcam is Born

Link-U has officially become the world's first ever 4G Hybrid Connection LTE Enabled Smartcam and has successfully integrated 4G technology to allow live streaming video without a traditional internet connection.

IRVINE, Calif., June 2, 2015 -- Link-U, the world's first ever 4G LTE enabled smart cam is born! Link-U takes the traditional wireless video monitoring system to new heights with its advanced hybrid connection technology. The product is a "hybrid" because it switches back and forth between connection, as well as power sources. Truly the first of its kind, the Link-U boasts 'always-on' technology thanks to its built-in 4G LTE capability and internal long-life battery. Wherever your Link-U is, you can be too. Not only does the Link-U offer premium HD video monitoring, it is also a complete Smart Home system. Its advanced Blue tooth LE technology allows users to remotely control a whole host of connected devices throughout the home or office. Whether you're on holiday on the other side of the world, or at work - just open up the Link-U app on your smart phone or tablet to see what's going on at home, switch off your LED lights at the office, or be instantly alerted to events via its smart notification system. Simple, reliable and most of all intelligent - the Link-U will ensure you never miss a moment.


Link-U was founded by Andy Benatti, world traveler and entrepreneur. Benatti's career has required him to travel for the majority of the year, and he hated missing out on important moments in his family members' lives. This is where the idea of Link-U came to mind. Benatti had a vision of a smart cam that did not require a plug or a WiFi connection; a smartcam that you can take on the road, on the beach, on hikes, and on family vacations and live stream video. He wanted a product that never let him down - even if the wifi connection went down or the power went out, he wanted to know that he could always keep an eye on his loved ones, no matter where he was.

After months of planning, designing, testing, and manufacturing, this hybrid connection smart cam is no longer just an idea - the Link-U is proud to be the world's first operating 4G LTE enabled smart cam! Following multiple rounds of lab testing, the Link-U successfully passed real-world testing on May 15th 2015, which marked an important milestone for the Link-U, stamping its mark as the first ever of its kind. Thanks to all of our loyal Indiegogo backers who helped us raise over $52,000 we have taken this dream and made it a reality. The Link-U will soon be in the hands of its funders and is currently available for pre-sale at www.linkucam.com

Link-U is a unique concept, combining everything users need in a smart home system into one intelligent device; delivering everything you'd expect from a traditional smart cam and much more. The product is labeled as a "hybrid" because it can switch between a 3G/4G and WiFi connection depending on where the smart cam is used. Footage can even be recorded, saved, and controlled from a smart phone or tablet.

With the tagline, "It's Like 'U' Being There," Link-U truly brings people together: anytime, anywhere.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
