Tend, a maker of award-winning lifestyle smart home products powered by computer vision technology, has just been named a CES 2016 Innovation Awards Honoree for Tend Secure, a smart security device that goes where you go.
It’s no wonder why it’s been honored. Automatically arming when you leave your houseboat, Tend Secure recognizes when you or loved ones return and sends an alert if a stranger shows up. The powerful embedded vision processor is uniquely able to perform accurate and real-time recognition with built-in facial recognition, and if an unrecognized person is detected, face capture can immediately alert you. This enables you to avoid any annoying false alarms while also increasing your peace of mind.
Tend Secure is built for mobility and supports cellular, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and low energy Bluetooth network connectivity. Its rechargeable lithium-ion batter can run for months between charges for clever energy usage. And for anyone who doesn’t like security cameras because of invasion of privacy, Tend Secure has you covered—it delivers its powerful people detection and recognition capabilities without storing any video.
This device transmits only metadata, tracking people’s activity with text logging so you can know what’s going on without the need for transmitting video. In this way, Tend Secure has found a great balance of security and privacy, making it ideal for personal spaces anywhere on your houseboat.
Tend Secure provides mobile smart security that cleverly fits the needs of any houseboater. As Herman Yau, Co-founder and CEO at Tend, puts it, "It sets home security free, allowing consumers to take it with them—and empowers protection and peace of mind for their home away from home."
