VVDN, a technology company focusing on embedded design services for domains such as Internet of Things (IoT), camera, networking and telecom, has announced a connected camera platform for OEMs, which will feature a mobile camera, mobile app and Amazon cloud services offering.
VVDN designed the 4G IoT Security Camera Reference Platform based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor. The latter is an integrated quad core processor supporting video analytics with HD video and 4G cellular connectivity.
When 4G network is unavailable, the camera will switch to available to 3G or 2G speeds, accordingly. This will aid in secure and edge processing for smart surveillance cameras, the company said in a statement.
Targeting use cases including smart homes, smart cities and other commercial applications, the Security Camera solution claims to ease surveillance. This is possible as it can be quickly mounted without the prerequisite of complicated cabling or Wi-Fi connectivity.
Equipped with a PIR and light sensors, the platform is capable of intelligent motion detection and will trigger an alert by transmitting a snapshot or video.
The trigger options in the application will be configured to record video on the 128 GB SD Card or cloud.
The platform has built in Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) for communication via BLE-based home automation sensors, GPS and geo-tagging support.
Two-way communication allows the user to communicate through the camera when an alert is triggered. It will then operate as a video intercom system, using the integrated microphone and internal speaker present in the design.
Additionally, the platform design makes it suitable for indoor/outdoor applications, supports iOS and Android and provides access to AWS Cloud services.
“This new platform for connected cameras combines Qualcomm Technologies’ advanced processing, HD resolution and 4G LTE connectivity with high performance cloud computing and intelligence” said Bhupender Saharan, CEO, VVDN.
Qualcomm recently announced that it is under plans to expand camera related technology, by adding hardware and software for video and imaging devices other than mobile cameras, and showcased a camera reference design based on the Snapdragon 625 SoC.
