Nokia today announced a wireless home monitoring solution with an integrated motion detector - the Nokia Remote Camera.
The Nokia Remote Camera has the ability to capture megapixel-quality images and video clips with sound, even in low-light and outdoor conditions.
The Nokia Remote Camera sends images or video clips with sound to an MMS-enabled handset or e-mail address when motion is detected, at pre-defined intervals, or when an SMS query is sent directly to the device.
The Remote Camera Manager application provides an enhanced user experience via graphical user interface for those owning a Series 60 smartphone, such as the Nokia 6670, Nokia 7610 or the Nokia 6600.
The Nokia Remote Camera is expected to ship in the fourth quarter of 2004 in Europe, Middle East and Asia-Pacific, with the expected retail price of 450 EUR.
This is a cool move for Nokia to enter the surveillance market with a complete solution. The price is a bit steep still. See also Covert Video Surveillance Cameras on SmartHome.
