Bluetooth 4.0 LE interface to serve as hub for connected home

SAN JOSE, USA: Using a simple to install, affordable IP camera as a hub for your connected home? Now, that’s smart. More and more people are embracing the idea of remotely controlling or programming an array of automated home electronic devices — and there are more gadgets than ever to manage.

According to BI Intelligence, there are 1.9 billion such devices today, and there will be 9 billion that can be integrated into the smart home by 2018 — many (if not most) of which will use low-energy Bluetooth® 4.0 (BTLE). That’s a lot of components.

How do you connect all of these machines talking to machines to your home network and start reaping the benefits of a connected, smart home? Typically, the more devices you have, the more apps you need to program and control them. So why not have one smart home hub?



Available for pre-order on Indiegogo, the link-U Hybrid SmartCam provides all this and more.

Bringing together connected devices that make the smart home smart is the new link-U Hybrid SmartCam by Link-Union. A video monitoring camera with first-of-its-kind patent pending hybrid technology, link-U connects you to your home using your smartphone or tablet.

link-U is different from other IP cameras on the market. It intuitively — and automatically — uses either LAN (home network) or its internal 3G/4G modem for easy, 24/7 access without complicated setup. Hybrid also means that link-U comes with two sources of power: standard Power over Ethernet and a backup 8-hour battery.
