January 13, 2022 – EZVIZ, a world-leading smart home security company, proudly announces that its flagship C8PF Dual-lens Pan-Tilt-Zoom Camera received the 2022 IoT Breakthrough Awards as the Home Security Innovation of the Year. Launched in late 2021, the C8PF brings professional-grade technologies to daily family use, hitting the target for an all-in-one camera for 24/7 home protection. Unique features such as dual-lens 8x mixed zoom, picture-in-picture display, AI-powered person detection, and extra-large on-device storage capacity all contributed to the camera’s winning.
For six consecutive years, the IoT Breakthrough Awards have recognized standout innovators, leaders, and visionaries from around the globe in wide IoT categories, including Connected Home, Consumer IoT, Enterprise IoT, Connected Car, Health & Wellness, and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,850 nominations. Bosch, GE Appliances, Schneider Electric, and Ring are among the final award recipients in the Connected Home category, along with EZVIZ.
“The recognition from the 2022 IoT Breakthrough Awards really says something about our constant efforts in merging high technology with consumer needs,” says Sandra Zheng, global marketing director of EZVIZ. “Since we first started in the IoT industry, we have been fully aware that tech innovation should be the core driver in our success. That’s why EZVIZ builds strong in-house R&D teams – to quickly respond to the ever-changing market competition. The C8PF is definitely one of our best creations.”
Setting a high bar for 360-degree home protection, the C8PF hits multiple security pain points at once. Leading with proprietary intelligent video technologies, EZVIZ builds the C8PF to proceed with impressive 8× mixed zoom and unique in-app picture-in-picture display. It can capture background information panoramically as well as close-up details at the same time. Its on-device AI also helps detect and distinguish human bodies from animals or other moving objects, filtering out false alerts from falling leaves or the neighbor’s pets. The user experience is smooth and easy with live viewing, panning and tilting the camera controls, zoom functions, and two-way communication – all of which can be done through the EZVIZ mobile app.
It is not the first time for the C8PF camera to receive industry-wide attention: a laureate of the 2019 Good Design Award, the C8PF first made its name heard due to its user-centered, effective product design that ditches the bulkiness of traditional surveillance cameras. Its lightweight, attractive housing understates the complex functionality in its design.
The C8PF also stands as a key milestone for EZVIZ’s one-of-a-kind C8 Weatherproof PT Series. The series – including C8C Lite, C8C, C8W, and C8W Pro – gained popularity by offering smart protection with zero blind spots, along with flexible buying options for homes at any budget.
