Luminite has announced a range of new features for the OCULi wireless PIR camera.

The current COVID-19 crisis has highlighted the need for visual verification equipment that can stand in for security personnel and passively protect sites and this in turn has sparked a great amount of interest in OCULi. The standalone OCULi unit is a powerful PIR detector featuring a built-in camera, that will only send notifications when it has a detection event, eliminating the need for constant monitoring.

OCULi is fully wireless and battery-operated, making it perfect for protecting vulnerable areas such as vacant properties and construction sites where CCTV cannot be installed due to wiring and power limitations.

The most critical new feature of OCULi is it’s updated power supply which allows batteries to be used in series, extending battery life, and supports rechargeable lithium batteries that can be used in conjunction with a solar panel.

When using rechargeable batteries and a solar panel, OCULi’s modem can be left online which allows users to view live images via the mobile app or web portal. Changes to the arming schedule can be recognised immediately by the unit and image uploads to the server have been reduced to three seconds (typically).

When OCULi is used with a speaker, events can automatically trigger a bespoke message to be aired once video has stopped recording. The message can be recorded by the user and written onto the SD card.

SIM activation has been simplified and Luminite’s non-network specific UK SIMs are able to make use of EE network coverage.

Graham Creek, Managing Director at Luminite commented: “OCULi has been designed to offer the end user a host of functions without power. The updates our team have been developing around power supply and the use of solar energy makes OCULi a compelling option for installers to offer certain sectors of the market, where traditional security devices cannot be used due to power constraints.”
