Uniden announces Australian first with tablet-style wireless surveillance and app

Homeowners are becoming more security conscious than ever, with recent research revealing that one home is broken into every 90 seconds in Australia*. Addressing the increasing demand for high quality, affordable security, the new Uniden Guardian is Australia’s first true plug-and-play wireless surveillance system with a remote viewing iPhone or android app.

Ideal for monitoring both the inside and outside of properties, the Uniden Guardian is the ultimate all-in-one security system for the home. The first of the series, the Uniden Guardian G2720 comprises of two outdoor weatherproof cameras and a 7” tablet-style monitor with an intuitive touch screen interface. An optional wireless portable indoor camera, which can be moved from room to room, is also available for those seeking extra surveillance inside the home.

Unique to Guardian is Uniden’s innovative new iPhone and Android app, which allows people to check on their home remotely, be they at work, on holidays or simply out and about.

Utilising an internet portal, users can ‘log-in’ to the home monitor via their Mac® or PC for access to the live video feed anywhere in the world. Unlike more complex internet-hosted IP surveillance systems, this easy-to-use app requires no complicated installation giving residents the opportunity to play ‘big brother’ in their own home - indoors and outdoors, and even take snapshots of what they see on their smartphone.

Offering wireless ‘plug and play’ functionality, Uniden Guardian is a true DIY security solution for the home. Set up is easy and can usually be completed in a matter of minutes. Guardian utilises the latest digitally encrypted FHSS technology to protect families against eavesdropping and hacking, while ensuring crystal clear, interference-free transmission of video and audio signals to a range of up to 150 metres between camera and monitor.

The Uniden Guardian system is capable of supporting up to four cameras, and users can customise recording settings to suit their individual needs, with scheduled, motion detection or manual record modes. In an industry first, the digital wireless system can record up to four cameras at once on the SD card so footage can be played back when required. Outdoor cameras can be easily mounted to a wall or ceiling, offering residents the flexibility to monitor activity where most required, such as at the front door, gate, garage or side of the house.

Other features include:

  • Round-the-clock protection with professional quality infrared night vision – up to 12 metres in total darkness
  • Fantastic ‘true daytime colour’ picture quality
  • 2x digital zoom, pan and tilt capability of live video
  • Quad, auto scan or individual camera views available on monitor
  • Quick tips’ user manual on the monitor
  • Remote Viewing. Anywhere. Anytime. Compatible with iPod Touch®, iPhone®, iPad®, Android Devices™, PC’s and Macs

Uniden’s Guardian wireless video surveillance range is available from June at leading electrical retail stores nationally.

For the first three months, any customer who purchases a Guardian 2720 will receive a free indoor camera valued at $129.95, via redemption at the Uniden website.
