Smart Hosted IP Camera Launched

Author: John Honovich, Published on Nov 10, 2009

Cernium's Archerfish has added a smart IP camera to their existing 4 channel smart encoder for the home market. Called Archerfish Solo, the camera embeds storage and analytics into an IP cube camera managed by Archerfish's hosting service. The camera is indoor/outdoor, has integrated WiFi support and provides intelligent search (see product comparison table).

This looks to be a substantial improvement to their first Archerfish product (now called the Quattro for its 4 analog inputs). While Cernium does not disclose the price of the new Solo, the price of Quattro is shared: $1700 USD for the kit and $25 per month for the service. It's likely too much for the home market (see our analysis of the Vue personal video and other home market competitors).
