1. Security Cameras

CloudD's IOT platform was designed for high-bandwidth audio and video data, making it perfect for companies and developers looking to build a cloud connected seccurity camera system. With such a system, users can monitor activities within their home or business from their mobile phone or a web-page.

Benefits

Remotely Monitor Your Home or Business:

Monitor live activity in and around your house or business from anywhere.

Store Data in the Cloud:

Video data is stored in the cloud (on remote servers that CloudD can manage for you).

2. Alarm Security Systems

CloudD and the Internet of Things is all about connected sensors, which makes it a perfect fit for security systems. With IOT enabled sensors, users can easily self-install a security system that will immediately notify them on their phones when a break-in has occured and automatically record the perpetrators. Data from such a system is stored and made accessible remotely in the cloud, making it perfect for any home or business that doesn't want to deal with handling the data themselves.

Benefits

Easy to Manage, Flexible Security System:

IOT enabled security cameras are easily installed and can broadcast their video feeds over cellular or wifi networks.

3. Door and Window Locks

With connected doors and windows, you'll now be able to lock and unlock your home or business with your phone. Such systems will also make it much easier to track who has entered and exited a building and who has access to certain areas - no more expensive key card systems, just a smart phone will be necessary.

Benefits

Remotely Control Access:

Control door and window locks remotely with your phone or tablet.

Smart Appliances: Use Cases

CloudD and Smart Appliances

The advent of the internet of things means that home automation can now be affordably implemented on a large scale. Smart appliances will allow people to remotely control when a dishwasher is run, notify you when you're running low on certain food items, automate a coffee machine to run in the morning, and much more. Users of energy intensive appliances will also be able to coordinate their use with when electricity rates are cheapest (homeowners will receive real-time data from utilities with appliances set to automatically run when rates are low).
