FREMONT, Calif., Sept. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --Smart home technology innovator Tend today announced the launch of its new Lynx Solar, the world's first solar-powered, wire-free smart security camera. Providing round-the-clock surveillance with ultra-reliable, intelligent home or business monitoring, this weatherproof Wi-Fi 1080p HD camera keeps operating during a power or internet failure, with fully-integrated facial recognition software to provide peace of mind at home or at work.
Just 1 sunny day provides enough power to run Lynx Solar for up to 7 days*. In the event of a power or internet outage, Lynx Solar stores up to 3 days of recorded data internally, and once power and/or internet are restored, the local data is uploaded to Tend's free cloud storage platform. The system is ideal for indoor or outdoor use, featuring a weatherproof housing that stands up to the elements.
"Traditional home monitoring systems depend on utilities to function, so hazardous weather or other events that cause power and internet outages make it virtually impossible to monitor your loved ones and property, to ensure they're safe. And, other battery-backup systems require you to change the batteries periodically," said Herman Yau, Tend co-founder and CEO. "The Lynx Solar is the first of its kind to eliminate those obstacles, using the power of the sun to keep you and your family protected, rain or shine. You simply set it up once and never have to change the battery again."
Integrated intelligent facial recognition technology allows Lynx Solar to specifically identify who is in view of the camera. Users can upload photos of friends and family to the facial recognition library and receive check-in notifications when familiar faces appear and alerts if a stranger is detected.
The built-in motion detector not only triggers automatic recording but also sends instant alerts to designated mobile devices, allowing real-time monitoring of live activity through the free Tend Secure app from any location. A two-way audio system even allows remote users to communicate with loved ones, pets or other occupants using the app. The system also comes with 7 days' worth of free, secure cloud storage to back up and review captured videos at no additional cost.
Lynx Solar takes just minutes to set up for smart video and audio streaming, and it pairs effortless with any existing Wi-Fi network for 24-hour monitoring, including infrared nighttime visibility, even in complete darkness. Multiple Lynx Solar cameras can be installed on the same network to monitor different locations around the home or business, all from the same free Tend Secure app.
The new Tend Lynx Solar is available to pre-order now for just $199.99 MSRP. To be one of the first to put Lynx Solar to work tending to what matters most, or to learn more, visit www.tendinsights.com/lynxsolar.
