Belgium based 3G modem vendor, Option, has announced today their plans for a new plug and play 3G security camera, which they have dubbed the VIU2. They claim the camera is easy to set up and can be used in any environment – all the user would have to do is select their desired location for the camera, plug in the power cable and they’re good to go. The camera is reportedly activated and managed through a personalized VIU2 webpage.
The camera is said to work pretty much like a regular security camera, detecting the presence of a possible intruder through the use of motion and sound detectors. When motion or sound is detected, the camera will automatically send out an SMS or email to the user, notifying them of the event.
The integrated VIU2 security service on the personalized webpage is said to feature a multitude of camera views, ranging from a single camera, single user scenario, to multi-camera setups where hundreds of users are able to watch the live streams and receive notifications wherever they are. Option is also said to provide additional services such as cloud storage of selected video clips or recordings, which we’re guessing is for backup purposes.
As it stands, the VIU2 is currently being sampled by mobile operators and the company expects volume shipments to start going out in the second half of 2011.
