Versuni launches new Philips Home Safety 5000 series featuring world-first sensing technology
The Philips Home Safety range includes a wireless sensing system comprising of digital sensors and contact sensor that leverage Wi-Fi and Thread technology to detect motion without requiring a device in each room.
January 8, 2024, Amsterdam: Versuni, home to some of the world’s most renowned domestic appliance brands, announces the launch of the Philips Home Safety 5000 series – a range of home safety appliances dedicated to ensuring loved ones feel safe and at home, no matter where you are. The range includes an indoor 360° camera, a wireless spotlight camera, wireless video doorbell, and motion sensor plugs featuring world first combined Wi-Fi and thread sensing technology. The Series 5000 seamlessly blends engineering excellence with an aesthetic design available in light or dark grey to become an integral part of your home.
Wireless Sensing without any blind spots The Philips Home Safety 5000 series is the world-first home safety range featuring non-line-of sight-motion sensors that detect presence without being hindered by blind spots or interference from walls or other objects thanks to the combined Wi-Fi and thread sensing technology. Thread is a wireless standard that enables smart home devices to work together through a mesh network without requiring a third-party hub or service.
These cutting-edge motion sensors - developed by Versuni in partnership with Artificial Intelligence of Things (‘AIoT’) company Nami – can reliably detect motions in homes in real-time without needing a camera in every room. The intelligent sensing technology, powered by machine learning algorithms, can filter out vacuum bots and pets, in addition to detecting human presence. Unlike traditional PIR motion sensors, they are immune to high temperature impact or sunlight rays.
Instant Setup, Reliable and 24-hour access The Philips Home Safety camera, doorbells and sensors are hub-free, making them easy and quick to install. The digital motion sensing software is embedded in a smart plug for minimum intrusion and visibility, a pack of three sensors and a door sensor that can create a zone of up to 1.500 sq ft, which can be extended by adding more sensors or additional zones.
The dedicated Philips Home Safety app provides users 24/7 control and insights into their home security from anywhere. Thanks to dual storage capabilities, the cameras and doorbell record locally to an SD card, and can also back up the content to the cloud. Should the Wi-Fi drop, the smart home devices will continue to record locally. End-to-end encryption of equal standard as those trusted by banks guarantees the safe preserving of recordings.
Available from March 2024 Philips Home Safety Series 5000 is expected to launch in March 2024 in Singapore, Saudi Arabia, and India, with additional countries to follow throughout 2024. This new home safety range follows the successful launch of Philips Home Safety Series 3000 in India last year.
