For our users, this will mean an increased tempo on new feature development as we continue to improve our service. Here’s a link to the release and I’ve posted its full contents below.
Camcloud Launches Cloud Video Monitoring Service
Private Seed Investment Round Drives Continued Growth and Investment
Camcloud, an innovative provider of cloud video monitoring services for homes and small businesses, today announced that it has closed a private seed investment and opened a development office in Ottawa, Canada. The new resources will allow Camcloud to accelerate its product development and significantly increase its market reach.
“Our focus is to bring the simplicity and security of cloud services to the home and small business video monitoring market,” said Brendan Harrison, Camcloud co-founder and CEO. “Most solutions today are expensive, require long contracts and proprietary hardware. Our service makes video monitoring open, cost-effective and flexible for home and small business users.”
The Camcloud platform allows users to setup a webcam monitoring system with a few clicks of a mouse, and provides capabilities such as motion detection, video archiving in the cloud, and email alerts. Users have been raving about its ease-of-use, with some describing the service as “CamWOW”.
“Our product development plan is focused on adding new features to further differentiate our offering in the market,” said Dan Burkett, Camcloud co-founder and CTO. “Deep mobile integration, expanded IP camera support, and improved video management are all enhancements planned for this year and we’re excited to get these features to market.”
Camcloud offers a free plan that supports one camera and paid plans as low as $5/month that provide more camera support and video storage. Visit www.camcloud.com/plans-and-pricing for details.
Camcloud provides a simple, cost-effective cloud video monitoring system for the home and small business. Using any webcam or Axis IP camera, you can setup a video monitoring system for your property, complete with motion detection, mobile alerts, and remote video surveillance.
