Panasonic launches NUBO, the industry's first connected 4G monitoring camera

24 Feb 2016

Panasonic Cameramanager, a leading provider of Video Surveillance as-a-Service (VSaaS) in Europe, today introduced Nubo, the world’s first 4G-enabled monitoring camera, to allow consumers to monitor property and belongings without needing Wi-Fi connectivity. Attendees at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona can experience the camera at the Panasonic Booth (#6H31) during show hours.

In the past, consumers had to choose between a fixed Wi-Fi home monitoring product, a fixed professional surveillance or a mobile video recording product, ultimately sacrificing mobility, connectivity or security. To solve this problem, Panasonic Cameramanager is launching Nubo, a new standalone camera that allows users to have all the benefits of a mobile security camera, with the advantage of 4G connectivity. Designed for both indoor and outdoor usage, Nubo is weather resistant and offers sensor connectivity through an integrated wireless radio. Additional sensor controls enable the detection of human figures, enabling more tailored alerts and alarms for the user. Nubo also offers two-way communication, allowing the user to communicate through the camera when an alert is triggered.

Nubo is the first true mobile monitoring camera delivering 4G connectivity, providing users the ultimate flexibility. It is the perfect solution when you want to make sure your family, property and belongings are safe, without requiring a Wi-Fi connection. With Nubo, users can spend their time living in the moment, instead of worrying if their valuable assets are protected.

“Consumers have long had to compromise on mobility and connectivity when it came to their surveillance needs, bound either by location or connectivity,” said Tijmen Vos, CTO of Panasonic Cameramanager and Product Evangelist of Panasonic Nubo. “Our vision is to deliver a product that allows users the freedom and flexibility of choosing where the camera can be used and the confidence in knowing that the data created is securely transmitted and stored. With the introduction of Nubo, we’re putting the control of safety and surveillance into the user’s hands.”

Nubo offers a complete platform for the user, with a ready-to-go camera, a mobile data plan, a mobile app for controls and alerts, external battery pack and add-on options, and a secure cloud storage offering, enabling seamless management of data and videos for the user. Nubo’s cloud storage system is built on technology developed by Panasonic Cameramanager, acquired by Panasonic in 2013, which has delivered bank-level security to the enterprise for more than a decade. With the Panasonic cloud storage system, users can be confident that the data created with Nubo is safely secured in Panasonic’s own cloud storage system and can be seamlessly managed through the mobile app on either an iOS or Android smartphone and tablet

To establish network capacity at launch, Panasonic Nubo is in conversations with world-leading wireless carriers. Vodafone will be the first partner to provide Nubo with 4G Machine-to-Machine (M2M) network connectivity in Europe. The integration of camera, app, storage and data plan ensures a turnkey solution for users.

Product features:

• Mobile network support (GPRS/2G/3G/4G): Nubo will offer connectivity with leading wireless carriers, with the Vodafone being the first partner to launch with in Europe
• Outdoor ready (IP-66): Nubo is weather resistant and can be used in both indoor and outdoor environments
• Smart human detection: Nubo’s advanced video analytics make it easy to know when a person enters your protected space, triggering alerts to the mobile app
• Sensor connectivity and home automation: Nubo’s wireless radio technology allows it to communicate with external sensors, such as door or motion sensors.
• Battery power: Nubo can be connected to an external battery, allowing for temporary use in places without a power connection
• Security: Videos, audio and images are automatically transferred to a cloud-based storage system, protected by bank-level SSL security and encrypted passwords

The launch of Nubo is part of a larger initiative from Panasonic Europe, which will also be announcing today its intent to become the first major electronics manufacturer to launch its own Mobile Virtual Network in Europe, allowing its business devices to connect seamlessly with the Machine to Machine (M2M) cloud. The first trials of the new network will be demonstrated today at a press conference during Mobile World Congress 2015, in Barcelona, Spain, where Nubo is also being announced.

Panasonic Europe will begin to integrate mobile connectivity across product lines, allowing them to access new Panasonic M2M cloud services. These could include remote monitoring, data collection and analysis - driving efficiency and reliability. The first product to utilise the M2M network is the Panasonic Nubo.

Panasonic Nubo is available for pre-orders in the UK, the Netherlands and the United States beginning of April, 2015. Product is expected to ship in Q4 2015 for the UK and the Netherlands and in the U.S. in Q1 2016. For more information, please visit www.nubocam.com.
