EZVIZ Launches its First-Ever Outdoor Pan/Tilt Wi-Fi Camera

Published

on

EZVIZ has launched the C8C, its first outdoor pan/tilt camera, just in time for the summer. “As children spend more time outdoors in the pool or garden it can become challenging to keep track of everyone. Fortunately, the C8C is designed to overcome such issues in outdoor protection. The smart camera boasts powerful features including panoramic monitoring, AI-powered detection, color night vision, and event-triggered active defense. It is an all-in-one camera that records, detects, and deters effectively in the face of property security needs,” the company said in a statement.

Its compact and attractive, the orb-shaped design allows the C8C to fit in any home environment, and it can rotate horizontally and vertically for expanded panoramic views. That makes it perfect to place near the front door to see who is ringing the doorbell. With a 352-degree horizontal view and a 95-degree vertical view, the camera easily takes in views across large outdoor spaces.

“We believe the C8C will become a must-have for many homeowners since it recognizes and tracks outdoor movement for families to multitask as they prepare for the summer holidays. It is also aesthetically appealing and combines functionalities in a great design,” said Lexie Zhang, product manager of EZVIZ’s outdoor pan/tilt camera range. “It is flexible in installation and versatile in use, and the pan-tilt feature will bring people a whole new experience in outdoor monitoring.”

The pan and tilt features help overcome blind spots in monitoring that many outdoor cameras suffer from. Furthermore, the camera comes equipped with a noise-canceling microphone. Users can easily maneuver the C8C using the EZVIZ App on their mobile device to see and hear what’s going on for active, real-time awareness of their surroundings.

To solve the industry-wide challenge in late-night monitoring, the C8C features a full-color night vision mode by way of professional optical lenses and two built-in spotlights. By illuminating the environment, the C8C renders colorful scenes even at night. This supplemental lighting can be turned on manually, again using the EZVIZ App, or can be set to trigger automatically through EZVIZ’s smart night vision mode. When ‘Smart Mode’ is enabled, the camera will detect movement and switch the video display from black-and-white to full-color.

Monitoring everything that happens outdoors is a complex practice, with changing weather and shadows, animals, and more. EZVIZ has sought ways to reduce false or irrelevant alerts from these and other triggers, as well as provide an active defense system. To do so, EZVIZ programmed an advanced AI algorithm into the C8C camera so it can recognize and detect human shapes intelligently.

In short, EZVIZ designed the C8C to ensure stability and durability under some of the toughest circumstances. That means it can easily cope with the high temperatures and humidity common in a UAE summer. The C8C has two external antennas for enhanced Wi-Fi connections and is IP65-rated to deliver long-standing, high-performance even in wind, rain or snow. The camera is ideal for both home and business use, including outdoor spaces like yards, shops, streets, factories, and farms.

Like all other EZVIZ products, the C8C boasts easy control, live viewing, and video playback using the free EZVIZ app. All videos are recorded in 1080p high-definition and efficiently compressed with the H.265 standard. Users can either store footage on the camera’s local micro-SD card or subscribe to EZVIZ’s CloudPlay for cloud storage, which now provides a free trial for up to 30 days.

The C8C pan/tilt camera will soon be available for purchase.

Apple Detects Spyware Targeting iPhones in Multiple Countries

Published

on

Apple has issued a second spyware attack warning to iPhone users in 98 countries, raising concerns about the growing threat to mobile security. This follows a similar alert in April targeting users in 92 countries.

While specific details about the latest attacks remain under wraps, the alert serves as a stark reminder of the evolving threat landscape. India is one confirmed country where users received the notification.

Spyware, a particularly invasive type of malware, can grant attackers complete access to an iPhone, including encrypted messages, audio, and video. The notorious Pegasus spyware from NSO Group is a well-known example.

“Apple detected that you are being targeted by a mercenary spyware attack that is trying to remotely compromise the iPhone associated with your Apple ID -xxx-,” Apple wrote in its new spyware alert.

Adding to the concern, researchers recently revealed the return of LightSpy, a “particularly dangerous” campaign capable of pinpointing a target’s location with “near-perfect accuracy.”

The worrying aspect of these attacks is their ability to exploit “zero-click” vulnerabilities, meaning infection can occur without any user interaction, such as opening a malicious link or attachment.

This highlights the importance of remaining vigilant and following Apple’s security recommendations, which may include updating your device to the latest iOS version.
