Home Security on your TV:
Y-cam launches its HomeMonitor Wi-Fi Cloud Camera on Roku Platform
19 AUGUST 2013 – Y-cam, the leading provider of affordable and easy to use wireless cameras, has expanded its platform reach by launching a channel on Roku that supports viewing of its award-winning cloud-based camera service, HomeMonitor. The new channel ensures that HomeMonitor can be accessed from an extensive range of platforms, including PC, Mac, iOS and Android devices, as well as Roku streaming players.
Roku is the creator of the most popular streaming software platform for delivering video, music and casual games to the TV. Roku launched the first device to stream Netflix to the TV in 2008 and since then has sold more than 5 million Roku streaming players. Available now for free installation, the HomeMonitor channel on Roku allows HomeMonitor customers to access their cameras directly from their TVs.
HomeMonitor is an all-in-one cloud-based camera service that makes it easy for people to monitor their home and possessions anywhere in the world and is the only Wi-Fi video camera on the market that records users’ footage from their cameras to their online cloud account for free, with no hidden monthly charges.
Devin Chawda, CEO of Y-cam said: “Where other companies limit how customers access their home security, we’re listening to their demands and enabling them to monitor their home from the devices they already own. We believe that HomeMonitor will change the way people use security cameras by bringing affordable, easy to use home security to the front room, and adding a Roku channel gives customers another accessible and simple-to-use platform to use. So whether it’s being used to keep an eye on older relatives, kids, pets, or maybe a second home, this can all now be accessed from the comfort of your own sofa.”
HomeMonitor is the first ever wireless video monitoring service that offers Wi-Fi enabled indoor and outdoor cameras, providing cloud-based viewing and recording wherever it’s needed. HomeMonitor Indoor (£149.99) and HomeMonitor Outdoor (£249.99) both come with infrared night vision, unlimited live view, unlimited motion alerts and records unlimited clips online for the last 7 days, completely free with no subscription required.
