FREMONT, CA: YI Technology (YI), the global provider of advanced, intelligent imaging technologies and products, declared the launch of the Kami Mini Indoor Camera, a tiny indoor security camera with a big brain, and the YI Dome Camera U, a complete coverage home security camera with additional privacy features. Both home security solutions are powered by YI Technology's proprietary, EDGE-based artificial intelligence (AI) technology, which provides the most advanced feature set at the lowest possible price point to make smart home technology more accessible to people.
YI has pioneered the development of a series of AI-enabled camera processing integrated circuits (ICs), which power YI Dome Camera U and Kami Mini. The sophisticated System-On-a-Chip (SoC) processing utilizes Edge-based AI enabling fewer false alerts, more advanced computing, and guaranteed access to AI features whether or not the user has a cloud subscription. Embedding the advanced AI chip in the camera also decreases detection latency because detection happens directly on the device instead of sending it to the cloud and waiting for a return signal.
"During the COVID-19 crisis when people are seeking greater control and security but are highly price conscious, we are pleased to be able to provide precisely this sense of safety at a low barrier to entry," said Sean Da, CEO of YI Technology, the parent company of Kami. "We worked full speed on the development of our Edge-based AI chips that power our newest devices to offer increased user privacy, improved processing speed and reduced service costs including cloud-based storage fees."
