Reolink Keen Marks World’s First 100% Wire-Free Battery-Powered Pan-Tilt Camera
Reolink has announced the world’s first and only 100% wire-free battery-powered pan-tilt smart home camera – Reolink Keen, which was first unveiled in CES 2017 and definitely became a big hit.
Why need a battery-operated security IP camera? Traditional wireless security cameras provide video surveillance even when there’s no network cables. But for monitoring an area without a power outlet, a battery-powered wireless security camera is definitely the only choice!
“Inspired by a user of C2 (a popular wireless PTZ smart indoor camera), who was frustrated by running wires to a power outlet to monitor his baby, we decided to create a wire-free battery-powered camera,” said Colin Liu, the CEO of Reolink. “As a father of two kids, I’ve also been thinking about keeping an eye on my own children without dealing with the hassle of wires, as well as covering the whole area of the baby’s room. That’s why Reolink Keen was developed.”
At the end of year 2016, Reolink launched a feedback program – Play & Say, to invite testers for the prototype of Reolink Keen, aiming at improving its features and serving users in a better way. Thanks to all the testers’ suggestions and hardworking of the Reolink R&D team, Reolink Keen is finally able to meet market demands, dealing with issues that most customers are concerned about for battery-operated WiFi cameras, say, quick battery drain, constant wrong motion alarms, limited viewing area, etc. Combining 100% wire-free, long battery life, pan & tilt, external PIR motion sensor, two-way audio, 1080p HD videos day & night, and more features, Reolink Keen defines what a top battery operated video surveillance camera should be.
Reolink Keen frees homeowners from cords and wiring hassles. No worries about drilling holes, and putting wires through a house, which will definitely destroy the décor in a home. Without a base station, users can put Reolink Keen anywhere in the house, and move it from the living room to dining room, then to babies’ room without much effort. Use it for watching a home, keeping an eye on the elderly, babies, kids, nannies, checking on pets, and etc. even when family members are miles away. This also offers great convenience for people who rent a house and move frequently.
Long Battery Life & No Frequent Battery Change
Battery powered video surveillance cameras can monitor anything suspicious during outages when normal wired ones fail to. And that’s not enough. What good is a battery-operated WiFi camera that needs battery change all too often? With advanced power-saving technology, Reolink Keen offers you a long battery life for months, with no frequent battery replacement.
355° Pan & 105° Tilt
Pan and tilt is another excellent feature, making Reolink Keen stand out from its counterparts. Almost all battery powered cameras in the market today are unable to rotate. Coming with a wide rotating angle – 355° horizontally and 105° vertically, Reolink Keen pan-tilt wire-free camera sees every corner of home with easy pan and tilt control.
PIR Motion Sensor for Smart and Accurate Alarms
Another major downside of most security cameras is the frequent false alerts. Reolink Keen smart home camera fixes it with a smart wireless PIR motion sensor, offering accurate alerts in real-time.
1080p Full HD Videos, Day and Night
Low image quality, say, 720p or lower, is another con most customers complain about video cameras. Offering true 1080p high definition, Reolink Keen views sharp and crystal videos & images in 1920*1080 resolution. 40ft night vision enables a clear view at low light conditions, or at night.
Some other excellent features of Reolink Keen include:
Two-way audio: Listen to what’s going on, and talk back through built-in mic and speaker.
Remote viewing and control on smartphones: Check what’s going on at home on iOS & Android phone, with free Reolink App!
Instant & intelligent motion detection alerts: Get push notifications, email & sound alerts.
Built-in SD card slot: Support inserting a SD card to record and save motion videos.
Easy to use: Plug and play with quick and zero setup.
“Considering the need for outdoor use, we are about to unveil a 100% wire-free waterproof 1080p Full HD camera – Reolink Argus, guarding homeowners rain or shine.” Collin Liu said.
