Tech Day at the Pier. This was the first year I attended Tech Day. It's all about startups and I thought I'd check it out. I did find 3 startups that were interesting enough to do a show about.
The first start-up I came across is a new company called Orbii. The idea behind the product is interesting. Instead of having to install security cameras in every room of your house, or every part of your business, how about using a mobile camera inside a ball. That way you can drive it through your home via WiFi from anywhere you are, using your smart phone. Here's more info from the Orbii website: Orbii is able to protect your home with only one unit, because it is the only system that is mobile and can freely move from room to room, giving you audio and visual access to every part of your home with single smart home device. Many DIY and traditional home monitoring camera systems are static, with limited viewing angle in one direction. These outdated monitoring systems only focus on the perimeter of your home, and fail to give you meaningful information about what’s actually happening in other rooms or other part of your home. Orbii’s simple, smart home monitoring solution goes way beyond the perimeter. It lets you see and hear what’s happening using 360 Pan/Tilt and drivable HD camera, It can also stream high-quality audio, temperature, humidity, and gas readings(Air Quality) readings from inside home. With Orbii, you have all the information you need to choose the right response, whether it’s calling the authorities or sounding the alarm. Price will be around $300, but they'll be deals when it goes on Indiegogo May, 2016.
