IRIS INNOVATIONS ANNOUNCES NEW SUBSCRIPTION-FREE CLOUDLINK2 CELLULAR MODEM/ROUTER WITH WIFI
Gosport, Hampshire, United Kingdom – Iris Innovations, leader in affordable on-board camera security and situational awareness systems, announced today the release of powerful new subscription-free Cloudlink2 cellular modem/router with WiFi.
Operating at low voltage and boasting extensive worldw
ide coverage, the low cost, small footprint Cloudlink is the ultimate portal for viewing and controlling onboard camera systems. Offering affordable, remote access and control of onboard cameras, Cloudlink is a multi-platform 4G modem router with WiFi failover, which allows Cloudlink to switch between WiFi data when in range of marina WiFi, and automatically switches to cellular services when out of range. Users can even connect the modem to an onboard satellite transceiver, providing even greater coverage if required. Cloudlink’s WiFi also means users aren’t tied to the helm and can view cameras on board via a smart phone, tablet or computer. Acting as a WiFi access point or hotspot, Cloudlink also allows access to the internet from other devices such as laptops and tablets. The Iris Cloudlink is unique in the market as it requires no subscription plan for this functionality and the hardware is offered at a price point lower than the competition.
“Up until recently, we pointed clients requiring remote access to third party hardware solutions and services. Now we have decided the best way to support our clients is to develop and supply a remote connection interface of our own,” said Carl Hitchcock, managing director, Iris Innovations. “With the new Cloudlink we can provide full support without having to rely on the services of other providers and, perhaps more importantly, as our business model is that of a manufacturer and not a subscription-based service provider, we can provide hardware for a one-off cost. Other than the data service charges you pay to your cellular data provider, there are no recurring subscription charges – once you purchase the hardware, that’s it, guaranteed!”
Measuring roughly three- by four-inches, the Cloudlink2 is ideal for discreet installation. The extruded aluminum housing is durable and can be DIN rail or surface mounted. Cloudlink is available through Iris’ worldwide dealer network, Fort Lauderdale hub and direct from Iris UK and priced at $300 USD.
