For your peace of mind, Umbrela is always watching and listening, with a built in camera, microphone, and motion sensors. Umbrela can take both photos and videos of intruders, but for your privacy and security this data is not uploaded to the internet. Unlike other devices that constantly push this sensitive footage online, with Umbrela it is stored only locally, in your own home.
Someone is always home
The first line of defence against would-be intruders and thieves is deterrence. Umbrela is able to simulate human presence while you’re out or away for long periods of time, including switching on the lights, and playing music, at random intervals. This makes your home a much less likely target for any potential break-in.
Powerful Response Features
In the event of a break-in, Umbrela has powerful response features, including:
- notification on your smart phone, or to authorized friends or family
- a loud siren
- flashing lights or all on lights
- ability to remote view
- ability to notify police & emergency services
Comfort & More
Umbrela includes even more features for additional peace of mind and comfort. Notifications and alarms for temperature and humidity can warn you and allow you to take action before a potential issue. These sensors are enabled whether you are at home or not, for maximum comfort and safety. Also, Umbrela includes privacy features such as camera LEDs, so you are always aware of the recording status.
The Trouble with Analog and Wi-Fi
IP cameras leverage newer technology and are often wireless — for example, Wi-Fi® — which virtually eliminates the hassle of cables. However, when you need an always on, robust connection, Wi-Fi can’t always deliver — falling short on speed, range, and robust data transmission.”
