New indoor night vision home camera to monitor home when you’re away

Hsinchu Taiwan, March 27, 2017 – Zyxel Communications today introduced Aurora – an indoor night vision home camera to keep an eye on things from afar. With its full HD, full-color night vision live monitoring and real-time mobile notifications, the Aurora will give users peace of mind while they’re out or away from homes.


Featuring a premium Sony image sensor, the Aurora sees colors in low-light environments

Capture every detail
Whether it’s keeping an eye on your little ones, pets, or watching over your entryway or garage, the Aurora camera captures moments in crystal clear full HD 1080p video and sees colors even in low-light environments. With the 2-way audio feature, users will be able to hear kids playing games around the camera and remind them to go do homework by speaking through their smart phones. The Aurora camera comes with 16GB storage, which is sufficient for a whole week of full-day recording in high definition.

Thanks to the one-of-a-kind triangle shape and the complimentary accessories in box, the Aurora is able to cover every corner with versatile placement options, be it on flat surfaces, attached on a magnetic surface or your existing camera tripod , or even ceilings and walls.
