The Most Trusted Home Security Camera!
Amaryllo InternationalPlease watch our introduction video below and meet the team!
The iSensor HD is a modular, self-installed, home security system that runs all of its communications through Skype. It is a small and unimposing security device that can be mounted on walls, ceilings, or even set atop a desk.
Several sensors can be added around your home or small office, all connecting through Skype to your phone or tablet. Offering up to 1280 x 720 HD quality in real-time, the iSensor HD aims to bring the ease of self-installation and the ultra-high level of Skype's 256-bit encryption to the home security market!Come check us out on Facebook, Twitter and our Amaryllo website!

iSensor HD is slightly shorter than the iPhone 5. With a built-in motor and gears, iSensor HD is the world's smallest and lightest high definition IP camera that offers over 180 degrees of viewing. Powered by a standard 5 volt and 1 amp supply, iSensor HD is also the world's lowest power-consuming high definition IP camera with a panning feature.
iSensor HD in action!
USB Connector for Portability
Did you know iSensor HD uses USB for its power and WiFi for its internet?
First off, it can be wall or ceiling mounted anywhere in the house with the included bracket.
Or plug it into a USB power adapter and make it cordless!
The back of the iSensor HD can be manually rotated 90° for when the electric socket is near the ground. Here you can remotely 'tilt' 180° instead of 'panning'!
You can even plug it into a portable USB power bank and carry it around the house! In this method, where ever you have WiFi you can place the iSensor!
Even connect it to your computer or laptop to guard your desk at work!
How Do I Control the Camera?
For all platforms, you can simply send Skype messages (L,R) to move the camera left or right. For Android devices, there are two more ways to do it. You can swipe the screen to move the camera (as the demo video shows below) or you can tilt the phone to move the camera. For iOS devices, both texting and tilting work well with that platform.The video below shows how to remotely control different Amaryllo products (such as iBabi HD) with all 3 different ways.
Skype Push Alert
iSensor HD has a built-in motion sensor and audio sensor. Once triggered, it will automatically send you a push text or push picture alert. You can customize your device name. For example, this unit is re-named "iBabi Azure" as shown below. The push message includes a time stamp, so you know exactly when the alert was triggered.
Below is an example of the Push-Picture alerts you receive. They are sent via Skype and once downloaded are automatically saved to you mobile device, and the pictures are always HD quality!
Skype allows us to bring you the industry leading 256-bit encryption on all of the iSensor HD's audio and video transmissions! Other companies often use unknown 3rd party servers that offer as little as 32-bit encryption. This low level of security renders them easily able to be hacked, as had happened to two major companies in the summer of 2013.
In addition, Skype software employs dynamic video channeling. This automatically adjusts the video quality according to the internet connection, always ensuring there is less than 0.5 seconds of delay and giving true real time communication.
Amaryllo in the News
"The iCam is every IP camera owners dream. It’s easy to setup, has 256-bit encryption, supports 1080 x 720 video without lag-time, and free cloud service. Then there are the little things like no contracts, no monthly fees, and a rocking Android app." - SecurityGem (iCam HD)
"Your best bet would presumably be to use one that’s actually designed for – and licensed by – Skype." -Gizmag
"Simply connect via Skype and watch what’s going on in your home from your smartphone." - City A.M.
"An internet-accessible real-time monitor/alarm for infants, pets, home security or other applications." - PanTech Solutions
"[The setup was] simple, straightforward" - Techno Traveler
"This cam is styled to fit in nicely on a kid’s shelf, rotates 360 and tilts up and down, and integrates with Skype. Plus, it’s adorable when it moves around." - CES 2014 Blog (iCam HD)
"The Amaryllo iCam separated itself from the crowd." - Linux.com (iCam HD)
Recognition & Awards
Amaryllo was selected as a Cool Vendor by Gartner in their Connected Home Report 2014. Gartner is the world's biggest investment research company.
We have filed close to 20 patents in our design and innovation. Shown below is iSensor HD's industry design patent granted by 26 European Unions.
Why Choose iSensor HD?
1. Most compact panning HD IP camera available
With its tiny size and super low power consumption, you can even plug it into a power bank for portable use!
2. Free 15 GB of online storage
We charge NO subscription fees, other companies usually charge up to $200 per year!
3. 256-bit encryption
Other companies simply can't afford to have the same level of encryption, that's why we leverage Skype's encryption technology to bring you by far the highest security in the home IP camera industry!
4. Skype's worldwide P2P servers provide real-time video/audio
Through the use of Skype's massive P2P network, users will have less than 0.5 seconds of delay anywhere in the world. Other products suffer from servers being based in one geographic location and can experience severely long delays depending on location.
HD Video Quality at Google Drive
Below is a snapshot of a recorded 1280 x 720 HD video at our assembling site.
By clicking HERE, you can see the actual recorded audio and video from Google Drive. You can hear and see crystal clear sound and HD video.
LOCAL RECORDING & GOOGLE DRIVE:
Recording is one of the most important features for security products. Without recording, surveillance cameras are virtually useless and that is why our products support not only local recording but also cloud recording as a backup.
We support up to 32 GB microSD recording for iCam HD and iBabi HD series. iSensor HD is our latest model, and we decided to upgrade the recording feature. So, internal memory is now included in iSensor HD products. For compatible microSD cards needed for iCam HD and iBabi HD, please visit our web site here.
Under the setting in the app, you will be able to see the status of the microSD card as shown below where you can select the recording video format in 720p, 480p, or 360p to save memory space. Once the microSD memory is full, our app will automatically remove the oldest files and replace them with the newes
GOOGLE DRIVE CLOUD STORAGE:
Amaryllo is the first company to support free Google Drive cloud storage and we just upgraded our firmware a few months ago through new app downloads or updates. Under the app setting, you can swipe to "Google Drive upload" as shown below.
You may select "Disabled", "Continuous", or "Event" mode. If you do not wish to upload recorded videos to your Google Drive, simply select "Disabled". If you want everything recorded to have a backup in your own Google Drive account, please opt for "Continuous". I choose "Event" to only upload events when motion or audio detection is triggered to save cloud storage.
If you have more than 1 iCam HDs using the same Google Drive you can upgrade the Google Drive storage to 100 GB as shown below at a cost of $1.99 per month payable to Google.
Time/Date Stamp Feature
In our last exhibition at IFSEC, ExCel London in June 2014, we were frequently asked this question: Can you support "time stamp" in your recorded videos since it could be used as important evidence for police filings.
Well, in the upcoming app release, time stamp will be included. 4 different time stamp format will be available to choose from to fit your region. By default, time stamp will be ON (but can be turned off from app setting) and will be printed on all push picture alert and recorded videos.
Time stamp will not be shown while you are having a video call to provide a better view experience. However, time stamp will be printed on all recorded video as shown below:
More Amaryllo App Features!
This is the first page you encounter in the Amaryllo app settings. Privacy Mode allows you to remotely enable or disable each Amaryllo device remotely anywhere, anytime to give you privacy on demand. A video demo is available here.
By default, the Motion sensor is ON and Audio Sensor is OFF. A motion sensor demo video is available here. You can select audio sensor in 3 different levels. For Push Alerts, you may select either push text alert or push snapshot alert.
Skype viewer list
You can add up to 10 people and grant them access to any one of your Amaryllo devices. Yes, we are planning to allow more to access in the near future with an app upgrade. After entering your friend or family member's Skype account in the box, he or she will receive an invitation from this device. By accepting a "contact request", your friend or family member will be able to check in and receive alerts just as you do.
Later, if you want to remove them from the list, simply press the " - " sign from the list below. It is super easy.
The microphone is ON so you can listen to when you check in to the device. The two-way audio is OFF by default; we did this because you may not want to be heard by the other party on the other end .
"Night vision" is our patent-pending technology allowing you to turn off the infra red light anywhere, anytime. Why does this mater? This is important if you use our products for baby monitor. Imagine your baby wakes up in the middle of the night staring at the infrared light and if the device is very close to your baby, it may result in harmful eye damage if exposed for a long period of time. Having the ability to turn infrared light off is an important feature for baby monitors.
The "Grant control to other phones" is a new feature. By pressing the tiny QR code on the screen, it will expand to a full image allowing the other phone to scan to gain a full access to this device. To do this, the other phone will download our app to scan this QR code. Within seconds, the other phone will be the second administer able to add or delete viewers. Click HERE to see a video on how this works!
Wi-Fi AP list
You can add up to 4 WiFi routers to each Amaryllo device. In the example below, I have added 2 Wifi routers to my iCam HD. The top router, Amsterdam, will have the highest priority to get connected followed by the one below. This may come in handy if you take iCam HD around the house from time to time. This feature also makes our products portable, and you can adjust the WiFi connection priority easily.
About this iCam HD
A unique Skype ID has been assigned to this device when shipped. It is designed not for human being to remember its ID, so we have created a "display name" which you can change to whatever you wish. In this case, I have named my device "Italian iCam".
If you encounter issues, you can press "Feedback" and our device will bring up an email with needed information embedded in the email to send to us. For more technical questions about our products, please check out our Q & A page or send your inquires to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here's a shot of the iSensor HD's 1280 x 720 taken live on Skype from a computer all the way across the world (the far wall is about 20 meters away). The image keeps its integrity without visual distortion.

With the 1.0 MP lens of the iSensor HD, the user can see all of the action going on in crystal clear imaging. Amaryllo's products also feature dynamic channel adjustment. This will automatically adjust the video quality according to the internet connection, always ensuring a delay of less than 0.5 seconds, giving you true real time communication! Other products on the market can have lag time up to several minutes, making two-way communication almost impossible.

Risks and challenges
The main challenges that we face at this moment are a lack of awareness of the Amaryllo brand and the iSensor HD. In addition, we are still in the process of beta testing the iSensor HD app, therefore we need feedback from the Kickstarter community on how to improve the user experience and make the best possible product we can. We intend to use these funds to hire more software engineers to join the team. We hope that they will allow us to quickly and efficiently respond and adapt to any obstacles along the way.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
