Hanwha Techwin America acquired Samsung Techwin America, which makes SmartCam range of security cameras and agreed to keep Samsung’s names in its products. On Thursday, the company has released a subscribe to SmartCloud option for their Smart Plus security camera. Now the device owners can save video surveillance files directly to the cloud storage instead of relying on the onboard SD card available inside the camera.
This feature helps to fix the biggest issue of SmartCam Plus HD Plus camera. A thief can easily steal the camera or SD card while committing a robbery and destroying the whole evidence, this mistake is completely fixed by releasing SmartCloud to the device. The video footage is also encrypted while it is being downloaded or uploaded from the cloud to prevent snooping.
Hanwha Techwin spokesperson said:
“Because we leverage the computing power of the cloud, we can deploy more sophisticated, proprietary algorithms that show marked improvements, particularly in removing false positives resulting from atmospheric conditions,”
The company also improved the camera’s motion detection and false positive resulting from the atmospheric conditions. There are mainly three types of SmartCloud subscriptions available for the SmartCam HD Plus owners, they include a $50/year plan for store up to 5 days of continuous video, a $70 plan for 7 days of storage and a $200 plan for store up to 21 days. If you want to try this service before going to subscribe, then there is a free 15-day SmartCloud trial option also available.
