We are excited to share details regarding our partnership with Tenvis, a veteran in the hardware industry. With a legacy spanning 15+ years, Tenvis is a global leader in the manufacturing and distribution of internet protocol (IP) cameras to consumer, enterprise, and government clients. Now, Tenvis takes its next step in utilizing IoTeX technology to bring their security cameras to the next level — “Powered by IoTeX”.

The partnership combines IoTeX technology (e.g., blockchain, decentralized identity) with Tenvis hardware to enable next-gen security cameras with full privacy and end-to-end security.

“We believe in making the ‘world in my eyes’ a reality for every individual and business.” — Jack Lee, Tenvis CEO

Tenvis — A Global Leader in Security Cameras

Established in 2005, Tenvis is a global internet protocol (IP) camera manufacturer and services provider. Headquartered in the hardware capital of the world, Shenzhen, China, Tenvis has manufactured and distributed millions of cameras all around the world for consumer and commercial use.

Their latest camera is now Amazon’s Choice with ~5,000 4+ star reviews! To see the full range of Tenvis camera, see their Product page.

Partnership Goals — A New Paradigm for Privacy

Like IoTeX, Tenvis is committed to making privacy and security more accessible and affordable for everyone. We have a mutual desire to provide everyone with a simple, private way to stay in control of what happens on their property and with their loved ones.

Your Home, Your Moments, Your Privacy. #Ucam

The partnership will combine IoTeX and Tenvis expertise in blockchain and hardware, respectively, to build the next-generation of fully private security cameras with great user experience. In today’s hardware landscape, product differentiation is becoming more and more difficult — a simple Amazon search for “security camera” yields thousands of products, many of which value unnecessary features over privacy/security. IoTeX and Tenvis will introduce an exciting new paradigm for privacy — our cameras will be user-centric, allowing consumers to own their own data for the very first time.

Ucam by IoTeX & Tenvis — CES Innovation Award

Last month, we shared exciting news that Ucam, the first IoTeX & Tenvis collaboration, received a CES Innovation Award in the Cybersecurity & Privacy category — a massive honor!

Ucam comes stocked with premium features, such as 1080p HD video, 360° coverage, night vision, motion detection alerts, and two-way audio. But what truly differentiates Ucam is powerful built-in privacy features, including end-to-end encryption, blockchain-based authorization, and full data ownership and control for users. Users have full “data freedom” to keep their data private, share it with others, or expose it to service providers.

  • Videos are end-to-end encrypted “on the edge” — even if intercepted in transit, your videos are fully encrypted and private.
  • Ucam utilizes IoTeX blockchain and decentralized identity (DID) to authorize WHO can view WHAT content for HOW LONG.
  • All content captured by Ucam is owned by you — not corporations, not IoTeX, not Tenvis, nobody but YOU!

Ucam will be debuted on January 7–10, 2020 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the world’s largest consumer technology conference. Pre-orders will also open during this time — stay tuned for more official details on Ucam by subscribing to IoTeX Twitter and Telegram.
