You’ll definitely want to see this new smart camera that actually levitates! It also has a host of other features and functions that will make you want to add it to your home. It’s currently being funded on Indiegogo, but it’s clear this product will be around for awhile due to it’s initial popularity. With a month left in its campaign, the Moon by 1-Ring has already raised 87% of its $45,000 goal.
The Moon is a pretty amazing looking camera that works with HomeKit and connected appliances to really transform your smart home. Oh and did we mention it levitates? That’s definitely the standout feature here and you can even control the 360-degree movement remotely using your smartphone. In case you were wondering, it can recharge while levitating making it available for 24/7 uninterrupted use. You can set it to turn towards detected sound for added security. There are no paid plans or hidden subscription fees here to worry about with the Moon. Other features include temperature, CO2, humidity, and light detection.
If the Moon detects motion or noise it can automatically turn towards it and take a snapshot. You can even set it to notify you when this happens to be alerted of an intruder. The device also lets you take direct control to record a video, take a picture or video chat at any time you wish.
It is the FIRST smart camera to levitate above its base and rotate 360° noiselessly. It also features dual channel WiFi, ZigBee, Z-Wave and Bluetooth smart and can help you build or expand your Smart Home!
Using the Moon to video chat is said to be easy to do and very natural. You can use it as an interactive webcam that follows you around, plus the high quality speakers combined with noise-cancelling microphones work to immerse you in the conversation. 1-Ring is actually working to create a smart hub with the Moon being center of it all in the home. With major home automation tech built-in to the Moon and sensors, you can truly begin to control your home from anywhere you go. From automating your daily routines to keeping your home secure, 1-Ring wants you to have the Moon be the center of it all.
If you want your own Moon Smart camera, you can make a pledge on its Indiegogo campaign site for $209 or more. That’s 36% off the future retail price and the lowest you can get it for currently. If all goes as planned, shipping to backers will begin in March of 2018.
