Hero Group ventured into the technology space with the launch of Hero Electronix back in 2015. Later, sometime towards the end of last year, it announced its first foray into consumer technology with the launch of a new brand, Qubo. At that time, the company announced four new products, which included: Smart Indoor Camera, Smart Gas Sensor, Smart Smoke Sensor, and Smart Door/Window Sensor. And now, it expands its portfolio with the launch of a new product, the Qubo Smart Home Security Camera. Let’s dive in to learn more.
To begin with, the Smart Home Security Camera comes with IP65 weather resistance, meaning it can withstand extreme weather conditions and can continue to function irrespective of rain, dust, or moisture. Users can use it in both indoor and outdoor settings and can either mount it on a wall or set up as a tabletop device.
In addition, taking into account the current coronavirus situation, wherein, people are supposed to wear masks, the security camera comes with what it calls, Qubo COVID guard feature. The feature is developed by the company’s in-house team, and it leverages AI to detect whether a person is wearing a mask or not. In case it finds a person with no mask on their face, the service notifies the user via the Qubo app. Moving further, the Qubo Home Security Camera also comes with other AI-rich features, such as person detection and baby cry alert (available on subscription only), which help users monitor what matters to them the most. For this, the camera constantly analyzes the video and notifies only when a person is detected in its FoV.
Talking about hardware specifications, the smart security camera comes with 24×7 1080p (FHD) live monitoring, with up to 10X zoom for monitoring the minute details in a frame. There is also support for Alexa, which means users with built-in Alexa supported devices can use their voice to view the video stream on their device. In terms of security, which is a crucial aspect when it comes to security cameras, the Qubo smart security camera features a custom chip, which the company suggests is tamper-proof, uses AES-128 encryption, and relies on cryptographic algorithms for data transmission.
