How Cammy Is Different From The Competition

How Cammy Is Different From The Competition


If you have just stumbled across Cammy, you’re probably wondering what separates us from all the other home security systems and IP camera related products out there.

You might be thinking, surely I can buy an IP camera from eBay and do everything that Cammy does without having to pay a monthly subscription fee? If you could do that, we wouldn’t be in business.

Let’s look at what makes Cammy different from other home security solutions.

Smart motion detection

All home security systems work by detecting motion, whether that’s using motion sensors or cameras. The problem is the number of false alarms / events that are produced. The slightest movement is enough to set off most systems, whether that’s your dog running around, a tree blowing in the wind or a change of sunlight.

With Cammy, you only get alerts if your camera detects a person ie. Cammy can tell the difference between a cat and a cat burglar.

To do this, we created a clever algorithm, along with a second-level human verification system, to help filter events. So while Cammy will capture everything it senses, it won’t alert you every time there is movement, unless it’s movement from a human.

A DVR system or simple IP camera will require you to scroll through meaningless footage to find what you’re looking for, while a traditional home security system will set off a loud alarm that requires you to go home to see what caused it or send out a guard which costs money every time.

With our no false alarm guarantee, you have the peace of mind of knowing that if someone is trespassing on your property or trying to break in, you will be notified.

Auto arm / disarm

Statistics show that one of the main reasons security systems don’t work, is that they simply weren’t armed during an intrusion. Cammy recognised this as a big problem for many people, especially those of us sharing a house with family members who are all in and out at different times of the day. Cammy solves this problem by automatically arming your alarm when everyone is out of home and disarming it when someone returns.

To do this we use geofence technology. This allows the Cammy software to detect if a person is at home via their mobile phone. As soon as a verified phone enters home and connects to the Wi-Fi, the alarm is disarmed. Similarly, the alarm is armed as soon as all mobile devices are disconnected from the home Wi-Fi. No more panicking at work, or worse, or as your plane takes off, that your home is unprotected.

Extremely easy setup

Cammy is DIY and is as simple as 1-2-3.

  1. Plug in your camera
  2. Open the Cammy app and follow the prompts
  3. Place the camera wherever you want to start monitoring

The simplicity of the Cammy system is that the hardware can be moved around and placed anywhere with a power source, and configuring the software is taken care of via a quick 3-step process within the app.

The app has had thorough user testing and is supported by our customer service team should you ever need a helping hand. In reality, you’ll probably never need us, all you need to do is follow the prompts.

Sharing and privacy options

With Cammy, you can have your cameras stop recording footage when you’re home and only activate when everyone is out of home. You can also share the alarm with other house members but not the footage. Cammy allows you to set these preferences independently so that you are in control of who sees what.

In addition, your cameras are password protected and footage secured within the cloud. Unlike IP cameras which come with default passwords, we make sure your cameras are extra secured in the setup process- which protects your camera from being hacked.

Low data usage

Motion sensor events can get out of control very quickly and consume all the house bandwidth if capturing HD video. Therefore, Cammy has limited the events to “snapshots”, i.e. images that when combined together, play like a video. If an intruder is detected the user can always switch to live view to get a HD stream. Using a competing brand, having 2 cameras active would consume most of your internet, with Cammy, you could have 10 and still have plenty of room to download that movie you want to watch when you get home.

Live HD View and 2-Way Audio

See a live HD video view from phone and press the speaker button to make your camera talk. Tell the family you’ll be soon, the dog to get off the couch or the burglar that the police are on their way.

30-day cloud storage

Old school systems still upload to DVR or some kind of local storage which requires maintenance and leaves footage vulnerable to being destroyed by an intruder. Cammy provides 30 days free cloud storage as part of the subscription and doesn’t cap the capacity. For those events you want to keep you can export these and share them by email or social media.

Quality hardware
