The Nokia Remote Camera with integrated motion detector has the ability to capture megapixel-quality images and video clips with sound, even in low-light and outdoor conditions and send images or video clips with sound to an MMS-enabled handset or e-mail address. Images and video can be sent when motion is detected, at pre-defined intervals, or when an SMS query is sent directly to the device. Users can also receive notifications when a minimum or maximum temperature has been reached, and can even view the temperature history for the past 24 hours as a graph.
Combining a digital camera, GSM transceiver and MMS technology in the same unit, the Nokia Remote Camera can be used in a number places that need to be observed: including home, summer cottage, warehouse, or even a boat.
The camera does not require a physical connection to a landline or to the Internet; all it needs is a regular main power supply and access to a GSM network. After inserting a SIM card, entering the PIN code and defining at least one user, the Nokia Remote Camera is ready for use.
Users can control the camera via text messages or by using Bluetooth wireless technology, and the extended user access allows more than one person to control the device. The Remote Camera Manager application provides an enhanced user experience via graphical user interface for those owning a Series 60 smartphone, such as the Nokia 6670, Nokia 7610 or the Nokia 6600. The Nokia Remote Camera comes with a stand for placing it on a table, as well as a wall or ceiling mount, and a clip-on shield for outdoor use.
The device is expected to become available in the fourth quarter of 2004 in Europe, Middle East and Asia-Pacific, with the expected retail price of 450 EUR.
