abode Launches Standalone HD Security Camera with 24/7 Recording

Palo Alto, CA – March 9, 2021 – 11 AM ET – abode, a Nice group company and leader in DIY home security, today announces the launch of the abode Cam 2, a compact smart home security camera packed with the features and versatility customers need to safeguard and monitor their home. The new, ultra-affordable abode Cam 2 is available for pre-order today at a special introductory price of $29.99 and includes support for 24/7 video recording as well as look-back capability for triggered events.

abode Cam 2 is the perfect choice for standalone single or multi-camera setups for security and surveillance and does not require a gateway. Deployed as a camera-only solution or as a component of a full abode smart security system, users can view live video, receive alerts when motion or a person is detected, and record to the cloud with an abode Standard or Pro plan. For existing customers, abode Cam 2 seamlessly integrates with abode smart security systems and will auto-populate video clips into the timeline.

The compact, Wi-Fi enabled, 1080p camera features an IP65-rated weatherproof housing and flexible mounting base, enabling reliable video performance both indoors and out. For extremely low-light conditions, abode Cam 2 includes a built-in Starlight sensor that unlocks full-color night-vision to provide homeowners with the ability to identify crucial details via a crystal clear video stream.

Built to take full advantage of robust video performance specifications, the new camera  supports Smart Detect, a new feature that notifies users if a person is detected on any abode video device and adds a short video clip to user timelines. Package and pet detection is expected later this year. Additionally, fast time-to-first frame, incredibly low latency, superior video performance, and simplified two-way audio are all supported by the new camera.

With out-of-the-box support for Alexa video and Google video integrations, users can view a live video stream from Echo Show or Google Assistant displays via a simple voice command. When fully integrated with the Smart Security Kit or iota,  the abode Cam 2 can be used in conjunction with CUE, the advanced automation engine included with every abode system, to define and trigger smart home and security scenes as well as control locks, lights, and other connected devices.

“This is the perfect camera for customers new to DIY smart home security who want a solution that is affordable, easy to use and manage,” said Chris Carney, CEO and founder of abode. “The abode Cam 2 is suitable for multiple environments and available at an affordable price, without constraining or limiting consumers. Whether you’re just starting off or looking to add more cameras to your abode system, abode Cam 2 is compact, full-featured, and highly versatile.”

abode Cam 2 is expected to ship to customers in April 2021. MSRP is $34.99
