iON Unveils iON the Home, an Easy-to-Use, Affordable Wireless Home Monitoring and Security Camera System

Sleekly Designed Camera Keeps a Watchful Eye on People, Places and Pets via Smartphone or Tablet; Comes With Free Cloud Storage

MOORESTOWN, NJ--(Marketwired - Oct 22, 2014) - iON Cameras, the global consumer electronics company that brought Shoot/Share™ Wi-Fi connectivity to point-of-view (POV) cameras, today announced it has entered the home security market with iON the Home, an easy-to-use, affordable wireless monitoring and security camera system ideal for use in homes or businesses. iON the Home gives consumers a sleekly designed system that allows them to monitor everything and everyone they need to via a user-friendly app on their smartphone or tablet.

Are the kids having fun with the sitter? Is the dog being good? Is my home secure? iON the Home delivers the answers to these questions in real time with a cloud-based, Wi-Fi video monitoring system that provides 24/7 live streaming, two-way talk function and remote viewing via Android or iOS mobile devices. The intuitive iON the Home app interface makes watching, deleting, sharing, storing or downloading videos simple. Settings allow the user to create and control event-driven alerts for motion, noise and tampering, which are sent directly to the user's mobile device or browser.

iON the Home is unique to the industry in that it provides FREE, rolling 24-hour cloud storage for all event videos. This allows users to archive or download any saved clip, so they never miss today's or yesterday's important events.

Available in black or white, the camera's unique, folding-hinge design allows it to be placed on a flat surface and angled for optimum point-of-view, or mounted flush on any wall or ceiling. Its 102-degree lens shows an ultra-wide-angle view of any setting, and its 720P HD resolution provides image clarity for crystal-clear videos in the day or night without imposing excessive bandwidth burdens on the network.

Setup, as with all cameras in the iON family, is a snap. Simply plug the camera into a power outlet, download the free iON the Home app on an Android or iOS device, connect to a Wi-Fi network and then link the camera to the mobile device through an easy-to-follow QR code prompt. No fumbling with a PC is required.

 "The home security sector is experiencing phenomenal growth right now, and we saw an opportunity to offer a more fully-featured and simple-to-use product for consumers," said Giovanni Tomaselli, CEO of iON Cameras. "Our elegantly designed camera system is easy enough for a child to use but capable enough to provide peace of mind for those seeking to keep an eye on their home, kids or pets. iON the Home furthers iON's mission to bring streamlined simplicity in form and function to the video camera market."

Additional key features of iON the Home include:

  • Ability to create a multi-camera network with several iON the Home cameras
  • Two-way talk to communicate with people or animals you are monitoring. Simply use the iON the Home mobile app to stay in touch and directly deliver messages.
  • Night vision monitoring with infrared technology to capture high-quality video even in low light to dark conditions. 
  • Ability to use the app to control multiple functions such as:
    • Determining which action will trigger recording (choices include motion, noise and light sensitivity)
    • Setting how long recording will take place

iON the Home will be available starting in early November at all Walmart stores in the U.S. as well as online from iON Cameras for $129.99. Beyond the system's 24 hours of free secure cloud storage, premium packages of 7-day (for $10/month) and 30-day ($30/month) cloud storage will also be available.
