Koova 2 has a smart “brain”!

With embedded powerful multi-core CPUs, Koova 2  is an intelligent camera robot that has a smart “brain” to perform real-time video analytics so it can track intruders and recognize faces to safeguard your home 24 hours a day.  In fact, the toughest challenge for the engineering team during the development of Koova 2 is how to squeeze in the powerful multi-core CPUs in the small housing and take care of heat dissipation issues. 

Amaryllo team was faced with a dilemma: using powerful multi-core CPUs generates a lot of heat, but the housing need to be kept small, so there isn't a lot of room for the heat to dissipate.  After many trial and errors, Amaryllo engineering team finally came up with a solution: fabricate the back cover using aluminium metal to act as a heat sinker and re-arrange our PCB layers for the CPUs to directly contact the aluminium to quickly dissipate heat. This ingenious solution enables us to pack many powerful functions in Koova 2 such as facial recognition and auto-tracking, yet still keep it in a very small form factor.

Koova 2 deploys a highly sophisticated and accurate Facial Recognition solution that detects and recognizes people’s faces that appear in the camera’s field of view with high degree of recognition rate. This intelligent Facial Recognition solution has learning capability that will continuously improve on the accuracy of future recognition. 

How to Setup "Facial Recognition"

This brief video shows how to set up Amaryllo facial recognition in simple steps. You can set up as many as 4 persons in one device.

This below video shows 1 easy step on how to add more pictures to enhance recognition over time. You can add as many as 50 pictures of yours to greatly improve recognition rate. Try to add your faces from different angles, distances, etc. Make sure to show both of your eyes clearly to be recognized.

 "Continuous Learning" lets Koova 2 remember your face in different angles, lighting and moods allowing it to know you better and better over time!

Koova 2 offers smart alerts allowing you to quickly dial pre-registered phone numbers to reach your loved ones or police. You can remotely activate the device alarm to scare off intruders as well.

 

Above is a live demo of Koova 2 auto-tracking visitors at 2016 Essen Security Exhibition. Note that Koova was powered by a power bank.

Typical 64-bit cameras can be hacked in 10 minutes. Amaryllo is the first smart home company to offer world’s highest 256-bit encryption to best protect your privacy. The possible combination of 256-bit encryption is more than the number of the stars in the universe so is virtually not hack-able.  This is the same encryption technology as deployed by NASA and Pentagon.

The Activity Zones will allow you to define what area you wish to protect. Using the Amaryllo App, you will be able to design up to 4 boxes to watch over your most valuable possessions. With just a touch of your fingers, you can customize the zones to look after what matters to you the most and ignore the other zones.  

The Blockout Zones work the opposite way of the activity zones. You can draw a box on your screen to cover an area you don't want to be notified for.

 Amaryllo’s dynamic P2P server will monitor the available bandwidth to enable the best quality two-way talk, so you can communicate through Koova 2 anytime, anywhere.

Koova 2 can greet you throughout the day with a "Hello" or "Good afternoon" and announce hourly time. Human speech is proven useful to warn off intruders. Multiple speech languages are being added by our backers to make Amaryllo products more useful.
