About this project

 

Secure360 captures everything happening, all the time, even when your car is parked and you’re nowhere nearby. 

If an unusual event is detected, the Secure360 notifies your smartphone in real-time, using the built-in 4G-LTE connection, so you can see what’s going on.

The Secure360 captures with clarity what’s happening in and around your car, giving you insight into any event.

It relies on a suite of advanced low-power sensors to watch for abnormal movement or motion outside the car. If an unusual event is detected, the camera instantly turns on and starts capturing everything that’s happening, streaming video to the Waylens Cloud and pushing a notification to the owner’s smartphone in real-time.

The first and only consumer automotive camera to use 360-degree imaging technology, the Secure360 is destined to be the best dash cam money can buy.

Step 1: Go for a drive

While driving, the 360-degree lens captures everything

Step 2: Park without worry

While asleep, low power sensors monitor for unusual events

Step 3: Know you’re secure

If an unusual event is detected, the Secure360 instantly turns on and alerts you while recording and storing video

 

Witness Everything: 360-degree lens captures everything inside and out
Life on the road is a busy and unpredictable place. The amazing 360-degree lens of the Secure360 never misses a thing, capturing everything that goes on inside and outside the car. Whether a fender bender in a parking lot or a collision during your commute, the Secure360's interior and exterior views eliminate confusion about what occurred.

Always Available: Low power sensors watch for unusual events
The Secure360 packs amazing technology into a beautiful design, relying on radar, a 3-axis accelerometer and GPS to detect unusual events. But most incredible is the Secure360's ability to capture these events when the car is turned off for an extended time. With the custom battery pack, low-power sensors allow the Secure360 to sleep with one eye open, protecting an unattended vehicle for an unprecedented 360 hours or 15 days.

Constantly Connected: 4G bandwidth streams to the Waylens Cloud
The innovative Secure360 4G camera and the simple-to-use Waylens Secure app work seamlessly together with the Waylens Cloud to provide a complete security experience. Automatic uploading of event data to the Waylens Cloud keeps event evidence secure even if the camera is stolen or disabled. High-speed 4G bandwidth delivers real-time live alerts and live streaming information power.

Always With You: The Waylens Secure app
The Waylens Secure app puts peace-of-mind in the palm of your hand. Get event notifications instantly, right on your phone. Access event video from Waylens Cloud from any location, choosing from multiple viewing modes to see the full story. Monitor your vehicle in real-time from any location, even reminding yourself of your car's location if you forget where it's parked.

 

 

The Secure360 was awarded a Best in Show award, recognizing it as one of the "coolest products and technologies."

 

 

  

 

  

 

 

 

 

With the included Direct Wire, the Secure360 can provide 24/7 protection for weeks with easy and straightforward installation. A cigarette lighter plug with battery pack option will also be available at a later date.

The Secure360 concept and design has been years in the making, representing Waylens' ongoing commitment to use its imaging and computer vision expertise to improve drivers’ lives.

Secure360 is advanced enough in its development that Waylens has great confidence the product is both feasible and manufacturable. Though the technology involved is revolutionary in design, materials and user interface, Waylens hardware development and testing has advanced quickly and successfully. Key components are identified and sourced so there exists very little uncertainty on the design and manufacturing side.

 

 

 

We have a strong heritage with automotive camera design, launching our first product on Kickstarter almost 2 years ago.  

The first campaign, to develop the Horizon performance camera that captures vehicle data and overlays it into video, was an overwhelming success; Waylens raised a whopping 1100% of its goal before putting the product into production and fulfilling orders. The Horizon has since enjoyed growth and expanded North American retail presence.

 

Now we're gearing up to do it all over again, but this time solving an extremely difficult technical challenge utilizing the lessons we've learned from the Horizon. 

 

 

 

Waylens is made up of a diverse group of individuals, all of which come together to create the perfect team for building our product. Our team includes world class designers, engineers, and developers as well as passionate car enthusiasts and camera experts. There's no team in the world better suited to build an automotive camera than Waylens.

Waylens is transforming the way people enjoy their time behind the wheel. The automotive camera company’s first product, the Waylens Horizon, enables drivers to easily capture, edit, and share interesting moments and automotive performance data from the road; its Waylens Secure360 will give owners unequalled peace of mind. Waylens is headquartered in Boston, with offices in Cincinnati, Austin and Shanghai.

Risks and challenges

Challenges certainly exist in delivering a smart and simple security solution to complex driving threats, but the Secure360 is advanced enough in its development that Waylens has great confidence the product is both feasible and manufacturable.

Engineering and Manufacturing:
Though the technology involved is revolutionary in design, materials and user interface, Waylens hardware development and testing has advanced quickly and successfully and key components are identified and sourced so there exists very little uncertainty on the design and manufacturing side.

4G Certification and Pricing:
The real challenge is in 4G certification since this is a process over which Waylens has limited control. The product has been submitted for certification and the product will be certified, but the exact timing is uncertain. Also uncertain is the pricing model on the service for 4G since plans are not fully negotiated with service provider. Our target pricing is $14.95 with the first three months of service free.
