Abode Systems, a pioneer in DIY smart home security, unveiled the groundbreaking Abode Edge Camera at CES 2024. In collaboration with Morse Micro, a Wi-Fi HaLow leader, and Xailient, an edge AI expert, this innovative camera marks a new era in home security. Boasting AI-at-the-edge capabilities, a 1.5-mile transmission range, and exceptional battery life, it redefines security standards. This cutting-edge solution ensures users have the perfect view of their property, offering unparalleled protection.

“Nearly every home security camera is facing the wrong direction,” said Chris Carney, Founder and CEO of Abode Systems. “Technology constraints have limited home security cameras in two major ways: a field of view that remains fixed and facing away from the home and rampant connectivity issues if the camera is deployed too far away. In nearly all of these cases, that leaves what matters most – the home – completely out of frame or with an offline camera. At Abode, we believe security cameras should keep an eye on what is most important. We are breaking the chains that tether security cameras to an outdated viewpoint with our partners. The Abode Edge Camera enables a new era of home security camera solutions capable of being deployed at edge-of-property to bring the home, and what matters most, back into focus.”

Unprecedented Range with Wi-Fi HaLow

At the heart of the Abode Edge Camera's groundbreaking features is the integration of Morse Micro's Wi-Fi CERTIFIED HaLow system-on-chip (SoC) solution. This revolutionary technology operates on narrow frequency bands, effectively overcoming the limitations of traditional Wi-Fi. Unlike its predecessors, Wi-Fi HaLow excels in penetrating transmission obstacles, even in environments crowded with multiple devices and cameras.

The result? The Abode Edge Camera offers an exceptional range that's ten times greater than traditional Wi-Fi technologies. This expanded coverage area means that you can place the camera in more locations, enhancing the security of your entire property. Additionally, the camera boasts a transmission range of over 1.5 miles, allowing you to monitor even the most remote areas of your home.

What truly sets the Abode Edge Camera apart is its ability to provide 1000 times the volume of traditional Wi-Fi technologies, ensuring uninterrupted and reliable connectivity. Upon its release, this camera will be the first Wi-Fi CERTIFIED HaLow camera with plug-and-play features, seamlessly connecting to your existing Wi-Fi home network.

Best-in-Class Performance with Extended Battery Life

The Abode Edge Camera isn't just about range; it's also designed to offer exceptional performance and longevity. With a massive 6,000 mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery, this camera can deliver an impressive battery life of up to one year on a single charge. Say goodbye to frequent recharging hassles, as this camera ensures consistent operation, reducing maintenance efforts.

To optimize its energy consumption, the Abode Edge Camera features an integrated PIR motion sensor that works in tandem with AI detection. This synergy ensures that the camera remains alert to meaningful activity and only records critical events. When no motion is detected, the camera enters a deep sleep mode, preserving its precious battery life.

The camera's unique blend of AI-driven event detection and power-efficient Wi-Fi HaLow technology represents a significant advancement in the industry. This synergy not only conserves energy but also enables the Abode Edge Camera to excel in outdoor environments. With an IP67-rated weather-tight housing, it can withstand the harshest elements, making it an ideal choice for outdoor security.

Advanced AI Capabilities for Enhanced Security

Beyond its remarkable range and battery life, the Abode Edge Camera boasts advanced AI capabilities that elevate home security to unprecedented levels. Thanks to seamless integration with state-of-the-art AI models and algorithms from Xailient, this camera can perform complex tasks like object detection, facial recognition, and anomaly detection.

These advanced AI features, combined with the camera's ultra-long-range performance powered by Wi-Fi HaLow, enable real-time data processing. This capability ensures instantaneous decision-making and response, a critical aspect of modern security and automation applications.

Seamless Integration and Flexible Plans

The Abode Edge Camera seamlessly integrates with any existing Abode home security system. However, it can also function as a standalone solution, providing flexibility for users with varying security needs.

To support the launch of this innovative camera, Abode is introducing a new, single-camera video plan designed to maximize coverage. The Abode single-camera Video Plan includes AI-enabled Smart Detect, on-demand live view, and up to 10 days of timeline from which captured video clips can be viewed and downloaded. This subscription plan is available to users for just $3.99 monthly, making comprehensive security more accessible than ever.

For users who require multiple cameras to safeguard their properties comprehensively, the Abode Standard Plan offers the same 10-day timeline, live viewing, and AI-enabled Smart Detect. This plan extends its coverage across unlimited cameras, ensuring all areas of your home are protected. Available at a monthly cost of $6.99, it provides a cost-effective solution for multi-camera setups.

Availability and Pricing

The highly anticipated Abode Edge Camera is expected to launch later in Q1 2024, with a competitive MSRP of just $199.99. This breakthrough product promises to redefine home security, offering unmatched range, AI capabilities, and battery life, all at an affordable price point.
