Aqara, a provider of smart home products, announced the launch of the long-awaited G2H camera hub in the US. The camera hub will be available on Aqara Amazon store starting from October 9, 2020.
The G2H camera features the HomeKit Secure Video ("HSV") support, and works seamlessly with other HomeKit compatible devices. The HSV support allows the G2H to stream video footage via Apple's Home app, and store 10 days of recordings on supported iCloud accounts without any extra fees* and via end-to-end encryption. Any activity that the G2H detects can be analyzed by the home hub device to determine if humans, animals, or moving objects are present, and users can receive notifications based on the information.
The G2H camera also features：
· Motion detection and mobile notification
· Abnormal sound detection and human shape detection
· Real-time 2-way audio allowing live conversation with loved ones and pets
· One-click video messages
· 1080p Full High Definition recording
· 140-degree ultra wide angle lens
· IR night vision
· Rotatable magnetic stand for easy installation
Moreover, the G2H has the Zigbee hub function, allowing it to control all other Aqara sensors and controllers to realize use cases such as home guard, smart control, and data reporting. The product also offers a unique function, Event Timeline, on the Aqara Home app. It records and marks all triggering events of Aqara sensors and controllers that connect to one's home, and displays such events on a configurable timeline, so that users can check all events by a click on the timeline without fast forwarding the footage.
Combined with the other Aqara devices and additional features from the Aqara Home App, Aqara's G2H camera hub is a great option for existing and new Aqara smart home users who want to find better ways to control, automate, and safeguard their homes.
