By RS Staff Published: January 6, 2016 ⋅ Updated: April 15, 2019 EZVIZ is launching a home wireless camera today at CES at almost half the cost of comparable smart home cameras. Mini IQ comes with Z-wave technology, which allows it to communicate with everyday smart products like lights, locks, and thermostats. Starting at $139.99, Mini IQ features 1080p HD resolution, 2-way audio, ambient temperature/humidity sensors, DC and battery power, and night vision up to 30 feet. With a 4-megapixel, high-resolution image sensor, users can zoom in on details and maintain 1080p image quality. Its glass lens also provides viewing angles as wide as 140° diagonally with distortion correction. The Mini IQ also supports a dynamic range of 120 dB for audio details in challenging lighting conditions. When Mini IQ is not plugged in or during a power outage, it goes into power saving standby mode and shuts off the camera to minimize battery usage, and reactivates within 600 milliseconds of its passive infrared sensor (PIR) detecting motion. EZVIZ has made data security and privacy the top priority in designing the Mini IQ, with every video encrypted directly on the camera and streamed securely by SSL to the cloud or a designated device. Although videos can be easily stored on the EZVIZ cloud, users can also store video locally on a microSD memory card up to 128GB. “The idea of the smart home is nothing innovative, but our approach is what makes us game-changers,” said Albert Lin, EZVIZ general manager. “We believe that smart home technology that keeps your home healthy and safe should be available to everyone – at a reasonable, affordable price.” EZVIZ is exhibiting at CES January 6-9, 2016 in Las Vegas at booth 71172 in the Sands Expo and Convention Center.
