Elegantly designed and easy to use 3G camera streams live high quality video and audio to a smartphone, tablet or laptop.

Leuven, Belgium - Option (EURONEXT: OPTI; OTC: OPNVY) the wireless technology company, today announced the VIU2, the new mobile 3G camera that allows anyone to easily set up and manage their own professional-level security solution. This security solution is ideally suited for the surveillance of homes, warehouses, vacation homes, construction sites, offices and much more. The VIU˛ is the only plug & play stand-alone security solution that can stream live video and audio from anywhere to any device that has a connection to the Internet, making it unique in its kind.

The VIU2 is very easy to set-up and use. In reach of a mobile network, you just need to know how to plug in a power cable and to send an SMS to be up-and-running with the 3G camera. The user puts the 3G camera in the location he/she wants to monitor. He/she then activates and manages the surveillance camera through his/her personalized VIU2 webpage. When movement or sound is detected, the system automatically sends out a warning message through either SMS or e-mail to notify the user of the event.

The integrated VIU2 security service on the personalized webpage suits everybody’s needs: from a single camera, single user scenario to multi-camera setups where hundreds of users are able to watch the streams and receive notifications wherever they are. Additional services such as cloud storage of the most important motion detections clips or recordings for increased reliability are available as well.

The VIU2 is currently sampling to mobile operators with volume shipments scheduled for the second half of 2011. The complete security solution can be customized to fit the exact needs of the mobile operators and their sales channels. The applications for iOS® and for Android® based platforms will become available shortly.
