Presence App Upgraded With New Presence Store to Improve Home Monitoring

Featuring Robots That Control iPhones and iPads Remotely to Look Anywhere From Wherever You Are

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 29, 2013) - Presence, the popular free application from People Power that turns iOS-based devices into WiFi or cellular-connected video cameras, is being upgraded today to version 1.1 and features the Presence Store. Users have access to the Presence Store from the Presence app or any web browser to shop for intelligent connected devices and high-quality accessories that make the user experience even more captivating.

Available in the Presence Store are two revolutionary new robotic device stands -- Galileo for iPhones from Motrr, and KUBI for iPads from Revolve Robotics. Galileo supports iPhone 3GS, 4, 4s and iPod Touch 4 and supports 360-degree views so that remote users can survey an entire room from wherever they are. KUBI supports iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Air and iPad mini and enables comfortable two-way, face-to-face conversations while looking around. Users can remotely control both devices through the Presence app with a simple swipe of the finger. The Presence Store is accessible online at presencepro.com/store, and features over 50 products for sale that extend the capabilities of Presence.

"With almost a quarter million downloads, Presence continues to keep people connected to the people and things they love the most," said Gene Wang, CEO of People Power. "We learned from our recent customer survey that 80 percent of our users want to control new devices from their Presence app. People are going to love these cool new robotic stands that can remotely swivel to expand their view and increase their feeling of being there when they're not."

In addition to the in-app Presence Store, the Presence 1.1 upgrade is optimized for iOS 7, and delivers alerts almost instantaneously when motion is detected, sending you a short video clip via email. Setup has been streamlined, recognizing your iOS devices and robotic stands automatically. Users can enjoy being part of the Presence community by watching and sharing videos on the integrated YouTube channel to see how Presence is being used from the best motion detection videos submitted by users around the world.
