Smart home solution on a camera – Part 4
Starvedia Smart Home Camera

    Market Sensitivity
    StarVedia’s customer base is primarily in Japan, the U.S and South East Asia. Wu sees huge potential in the smart home market, which is strongest is the U.S., but has also picked up significantly this year in Europe and China. On a smaller scale, StarVedia products are also distributed all over Asia and Europe, mainly in Germany and France. Market conditions in China are different, however—Wu thinks the company is better off marketing its own brand there, and has done so through a subsidiary.

    With rich cooperation experience with branded customers who usually sell products in various retail channels, Wu knows which checkboxes to tick in different geographical markets. For example, in Japan, product quality.....

    Dual Power
    In addition to making reliable and easy-to-use software, StarVedia’s innovative culture also manifests in its hardware. “Video performance and image quality are highly dependent on the processor used in the camera, but there are other ways to enhance a camera’s performance besides choosing the most powerful chip,” Wu said.

    One feature Wu is especially proud of is that all StarVedia cameras have two “eyes.” According to Wu, StarVedia is the only home camera maker that offersdual-lens cameras. “Many buyers are curious about the purpose of this design. It’s not a gimmick—the dual-lens design helps overcome flaws inherent to mechanical IR-cut filters,” .....

The May 2014 issue of SMAhome has been published
Starvedia Smart Home Camera

    SMAhome’s second issue has just been published. Readers should expect it to arrive in mailboxes in roughly two weeks.

    The Cover Star for our May issue is Starvedia CEO Jeffery Wu. We caught up with him to ask him about his views on the smart home market and what it means for camera manufacturers, as well as what he thinks it will take to stand out in the crowded space.

    Blacksumac, creator of Piper, was acquired by iControl Networks and we spoke with Blacksumac’s founder (now EVP and GM of iControl Canada) briefly about Piper’s new features and the acquisition.

    We also covered a few trade shows relevant to smart home, including CeBIT 2014, Lighting + Building 2014 and the 2014 SMAhome International Conference and Exhibition. We summarized a few interesting seminars from the SMAhome Conference, including those presented by Amaryllo, Bosch Security, Skywatch and Z-Wave.

    This issue’s exploration focuses on the role of software and the current state of security regarding smart home systems and devices. We also have a feature on Chinese home camera manufacturers and video doorphones.

    Software Troop
    Most camera makers in Taiwan are heavily hardware-oriented, but StarVedia is taking a different approach. “We are actually a software-savvy troop. We know how to design the software and efficiently integrate it with the hardware to achieve true plug-and-play, Wu said. “All of our software is developed in-house. We have extensive experience developing software for various operating systems, such as iOS, Android, Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows and others, and mobile is in our culture.”

    The ubiquity of smartphones is a major driver for the home camera market. “We began developing software for mobile devices since Symbian was the dominant platform,” Wu said with a smile. “In a way, I am happy the battle between mobile platforms has left us with just two: Android and iOS. Our engineering team.....
