Diamond Multimedia Launches PlugnView, a Remote Home Monitoring Camera Kit For Smartphones And Tablets
Los Angeles, Calif. – May 9, 2013 — Diamond Multimedia today announced the PlugnView, a camera kit that allows for remote monitoring of the home or office through a live, full-color stream sent directly to a mobile device. Additionally, the PC software allows for setting recording schedules and email alerts with trigger motion detection keeping the family safe and alert while away. Featuring night vision technology and sharable via iOS and Android platforms, the PlugnView offers a real-time monitoring solution for family security, pet safety and elderly assistance.
The Diamond Multimedia PlugnView home monitoring solution is the first of its kind using HomePlug AV-compliant power line communications (PLC) technology. The advanced plug-and-play technology automatically configures and connects the PlugnView Camera to the Diamond PlugnView app with the scanning of a QR code at the bottom of the camera. After the initial setup, users can view the area selected for instant monitoring from a mobile device or tablet, using 3G, 4G, LTE or Wi-Fi connections.
The PlugnView includes IR night vision up to 16 feet, and an easy two-step installation. While the PC software offers additional features, a PC is not required for installation and wall and ceiling mount accessories are included.
How it Works
Setting up the PlugnView is as simple as downloading an app. First, plug in the PlugnView camera into a wall outlet and connect the adapter (included with camera package) to a router. Next, download the Diamond PlugnView app from Google Play or the Apple store and scan the bottom of the camera to link one or more mobile devices to the live video stream for optimal viewing. After scanning, users can create custom real-time notifications through a PC when away from the home or office for a personalized monitoring experience. The setup can support additional cameras as well.
Pricing and Availability
The Diamond Multimedia PlugnView is now available at the Diamond Multimedia Online Store (Diamond Mulitmedia PlugnView) at authorized resellers including Amazon, MicroCenter, Newegg and TigerDiect.
