November 6, 2018

PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 6, 2018--YI Technology (YI), a leading provider of advanced, intelligent imaging technologies, today announced Kami, the newest addition to its family of smart home security products. Characterized by clean, friendly design and heavy emphasis on usability, Kami empowers everyday users to unlock the peace of mind that comes with protecting the people and places that they love.

At launch, customers will be able to purchase the Kami Indoor Camera, the most complete out-of-the-box home security camera on the market. Featuring a 360° viewing angle that lets users see the entire room from one location, the Kami Indoor Camera features live video monitoring, 1080p HD video, two-way audio, privacy mode, and a host of advanced capabilities, such as rich notifications with video clips, human detection and crying baby alerts—all which do not require a paid subscription.

Thanks to the integration with Microsoft Azure, announced earlier this year, Kami was built with innovation and security in mind. Kami brings the power of Azure’s advanced machine learning from the cloud to the intelligent edge. Kami users can also take advantage of the Azure integration by backing up their video footage on Kami Cloud, providing enterprise-grade cloud security, durability, and data residency within our customers’ geographical-regions.

“We see a real opportunity to invite more people into the smart home discussion through the launch of Kami,” said Sean Da, CEO of YI Technology. “Many other providers have claimed to do so, but their products often leave users feeling alienated due to the complexity and cost. We’ve listened closely to our customers and with the launch of the Kami brand, we hope to bring a truly accessible set of solutions capable of meeting the needs of homeowners, renters and business owners.”

“ The launch of Kami is an exciting milestone in YI Technology’s integration, leveraging the advanced AI and cloud storage capabilities of Microsoft Azure,” said Tad Brockway, General Manager of Azure Storage and Azure Stack, Microsoft Corp. “The Kami ecosystem powered by Azure means customers’ homes are smarter and more secure, giving them confidence they and their data are well protected.”

DETAILS about availability

The Kami Indoor Camera is now available at Microsoft Store locations throughout the US and online at microsoft.com. The camera is available for purchase at an MSRP of $129.99 (USD).
