More Details of Onvis Camera Surface Prior to CES Launch

With the recent release of the latest offering from China smart home company Onvis, namely the Onvis Security Alarm Contact Sensor (check out our review HERE), the company are readying themselves for CES 2020 to unveil their latest camera.

This latest product was first spotted via the company’s booth at the 2019 Hong Kong Electronics Fair, although confusingly enough, there was one camera displayed on the backdrop to the booth, whilst another camera is being displayed on a desk in the foreground.

To compound the confusion, the company has now issued a placeholder advertising their attendance at this year’s CES show, displaying yet another slightly different camera! Given that this image is for CES, it’s more than likely that this will be the camera that we’ll see for sale at some point soon (we hope).

It has already been revealed that the camera will be HomeKit compatible, and will purportedly come with HomeKit Secure video (HSV) compatibility, but we’ve been able to unveil a few more details regarding the camera, which are fairly impressive nonetheless.

  • The camera will be capable of up to two simultaneous 1080p live streams, as well as full 1080p recording.
  • The camera uses a Sony Starlight CMOS sensor
  • Can connect to both 5GHz and 2.4GHz wifi networks
  • Includes an option for local video storage via an SD Card up to 128GB

This is all quite impressive and will be more so if the camera is keenly priced. Hopefully, we’ll see the new camera in the first quarter of 2020.

  • What is the use for a second streamed vision? The only thing I could think of was viewing via stream the local SD card recording, while still live streaming to ICloud. But you may as well view from ICloud anyway.

    • I’m not certain, but maybe more than one person would want to view the live stream at the same time. If the camera detected motion and you wanted to see what triggered it, maybe you and your partner, who might both be at work in different locations, might want to see what’s going on.
