About ”Rusuban Cam”
As people’s awareness for personal security increases, more demand for services such as remote home monitoring, pets/kids monitoring, and overseeing elderly living alone is expected. “Rusuban Cam™” released by Morpho fulfills these demands easily with smartphones and tablets. Conventional monitoring services often requires specialized camera and equipment whereas “Rusuban Cam™,” powered by Morpho’s imaging technology, offers similar service simply with smartphones. If there are tablets or unused smartphones sitting at home, they can be utilized as a camera. The images captured by these devices are available for viewing from users’ smartphones to perform remote monitoring.“Rusuban Cam™” offers two capture modes; scheduled capture and motion detect capture which takes advantage of Morpho’s motion detection technology. Captured images are uploaded instantly for viewing from other smartphones. The images are displayed in a timeline-format so users can remotely monitor how their kids, pets and elders who they care about are doing.
- Low cost: This service starts out as a free service. Although it is planned to evolve into a paid service in Feb. 2014, we plan to offer at a low price and keep the quality at its best.
