Xiaomi expands the Mi Ecosystem with the new 360-rotating home camera


Xiaomi already has a few home cameras meant for security, but the Chinese brand announced another one earlier today anyway.

The USP of this camera happens to be its 360-degree rotation, which means you aren’t restricted to just one field of view. Needless to say, the camera pairs up with your phone via an app, which you can later use to control the camera from wherever you may be.

The camera uses the Ambarella S2LM chip and features full 1080p recording. Infrared night vision and motion detection are a couple of features that this new camera supports.

As for the price, this new smart home camera is as affordable as any other Mi gadget out there… at just 399 Yuan ($61). Of course, availability is restricted to China at the moment.

This Mi Ecosystem (MiJia) device is scheduled to start shipping May 30th.

            according to Wikipedia :

            An intercom (intercommunication device), talkback or doorphone
            is a stand-alone voice communications system for use within a building
            or small collection of buildings, functioning independently of the public telephone network(Azori 2016). Intercoms are generally mounted permanently in buildings and vehicles. Intercoms can incorporate connections to public address loudspeaker systems, walkie talkies, telephones, and to other intercom systems. Some intercom systems incorporate control of devices such as signal lights and door latches.

            There are simple house intercoms and intercoms developed for
            collective apartments. Some are equipped with video, and its wiring
            (electrical installation), can be connected to the outside with few
            pairs (4-6 pairs) while controlling an electric strike. The last generations are even compatible with computers and some models include TCP/IP.
