TORONTO, Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- LOREX Technology Inc. today announced the latest innovation in their line of plug & play home video monitors, the LOREX® LIVE CONNECT. The first in its series, the LIVE CONNECT (LW2031) is an easy-to-use portable home monitor that features remote viewing over the Internet using Skype. Users can log onto Skype and access the camera from anywhere in world. This breakthrough product is the first of its kind to carry the Plugged Into Skype™ designation. The LIVE CONNECT is a unique monitoring solution for home and away use, and is positioned to have instant appeal to the massive worldwide user base of Skype – if you can use Skype, you can use LIVE CONNECT.
With LIVE CONNECT, there's no need to leave your local computer on or have Skype running in order to access your camera from another location. When the LOREX LIVE CONNECT Gateway is plugged into your home router it automatically connects to the Skype server. The Gateway and connected cameras now become a Skype "contact." Users simply login to Skype and place a free call to the camera, similar to how they would connect to another Skype user. Connect via Skype from PC, Mac, iPhone™, iPad™, or iPad 2™.
When at home, the LIVE CONNECT system also includes a convenient handheld monitor. Video and audio transmission between the camera and handheld monitor is private, secure, and will not conflict with other household wireless devices. At those magic moments, LIVE CONNECT enables families to take snapshots and record video using the handheld monitor, which can then be copied to a computer and shared on popular social networking sites.
"The LIVE CONNECT is a groundbreaking leap in simplified home monitoring," said Reuben Klein, chief executive officer of LOREX Technology Inc. "It lets users see and connect with their home environment easily through the power of Skype. Simply connected, simply aware, parents can check on their children while at work and grandparents out-of-town can see their grandchildren at any time. LIVE CONNECT offers real monitoring features and can bring families and friends closer together."
The LOREX LIVE CONNECT Wireless Video Monitor is a recipient of the Design & Engineering Innovations Award at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show. It includes a portable wireless color camera with automatic night vision, an expandable 4 channel gateway, and a compact 2.4" LCD handheld monitor. The system will be available on Amazon.com and other major online retailers. For more information, visit www.lorextechnology.com.
