"Making consumers' lives easier through the creation of innovative, wireless products has always been the focus at Uniden," said Rex Holloway, vice president of new product development at Uniden America Corporation. "Our new wireless video surveillance products and first-ever waterproof, floating two-way radios are natural extensions of our World Without Wires brand philosophy and perfect examples of Uniden's continued commitment to innovation."

Wireless Video Surveillance

Perfect for the home or small business, Uniden's wireless video surveillance products use digital 2.4GHz wireless technology for a secure, interference-free experience. Simple installation and a choice of a variety of cameras and monitors offer a complete video surveillance solution.

The product line includes a 3.5-inch portable wireless video monitor, a 7-inch wireless video monitor, an indoor/outdoor wireless camera and a compact portable wireless camera. The system can support one monitor and up to four cameras, and both the indoor/outdoor and portable wireless cameras are equipped with infrared night vision. The included surveillance software allows users to monitor and control the system from a personal computer, and offers a variety of recording capabilities, including scheduling and motion detection. In addition, both the 3.5-inch and 7-inch monitors can be easily connected to a television via standard RCA cables for big screen viewing.

Waterproof Two-way Radios

In addition to its new wireless video surveillance offerings, Uniden is also introducing two new waterproof GMRS/FRS two-way radios. Built to the JIS-7 standard, these rugged radios can be submersed in three feet of water for up to 30 minutes. The radios are also designed to float, making them ideal for use in a variety of weather conditions, outdoor activities and environments.

With a maximum range of 28 miles, these models are packed with all the features consumers have come to expect from Uniden's two-way radios. The radios allow for 6,270 channel combinations to ensure secure communications that are free from interference. Features such as Channel Scan, Channel Monitor, large buttons and an over-sized backlit display ensure ease of use in any situation. Uniden's Direct Call feature allows users to call one person in a group without calling everyone, while the innovative Auto Channel Change feature funnels everyone in a user group to a new channel to avoid interference when radio traffic is heavy.
