Samsung Unveils Three New Wireless Security Cameras at CES 2012

Samsung WiFi inTouchSamsung Techwin America has just debuted three new security camera solutions at CES 2012, all of which are aimed at home consumers. One of the devices debuted at the show was the WiFi Video Baby Monitor and its WiFi Surveillance Camera. This combo is perfect for keeping an eye on your home and personal property. In addition to the WiFi Video Baby Monitor, Samsung also debuted its WiFi inTouch camera, which offers Skype integration for video calls directly onto your HDTV.

All of these devices also feature WiFi connectivity and are designed to make wireless video security and conference calling more easily available and accessible to a bigger audience.

The WiFi Video Baby Monitor and the WiFi Surveillance Camera both have the same features with slightly different designs. Both devices are IP-based cameras with a one-touch WPS button that allows for easy wireless pairing with your home network. In addition to that, you can also register your camera with, which allows you to view your live feed via a computer, smartphone or tablet whenever and wherever you want.

The camera features an infrared LED lighting for recording in low light situations and a speaker and microphone are also included for two-way communication while audio and motion sensors can be enabled for automatic recording. The camera records at 640 x 480 resolution in H.264 format and all the footage is uploaded automatically to a secure YouTube account. The Samsung WiFi Baby Monitor and WiFi Surveillance Camera will both be available in March for $149 each.

The WiFi inTouch camera brings internet connectivity to your HDTV and features a wide-angle lens, HDMI out, USB port, WiFi connectivity and a QWERTY remote. The inTouch also integrates Skype video chat as well as apps like YouTube and Google News to your HDTV. The camera itself stands on its own without the need of a computer and is also capable of 720p HD video.

The camera is powered by a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 processor with a heavily modified Android Gingerbread kernel. At launch there will be a total of five apps available and Samsung is promising more in the future. The WiFi inTouch camera will be available to the public in March for a retail price of $199.

Samsung is hoping that this new line of wireless security cameras will make home security a lot more simple and affordable for your average user since none of the cameras require a centralized server or any additional equipment. The inTouch camera should help bring a lot of internet-enabled features to older HDTVs without the need for an upgrade, and users will also be able to use their existing Skype accounts on the inTouch, allowing communication with any user on any Skype-enabled device anywhere in the world.
