4G Security Camera

Nubo, the water-resistant security camera we developed for Panasonic, can work independently from Wi-Fi allowing it to be positioned anywhere, including outdoors. It features a wide-angle view, IR night vision, and HD video quality. When the camera senses movement or sound it can send a notification to your phone.

Challenge

 

Panasonic wanted to be the first with a 4G Security Camera on the market. Panasonic was having trouble meeting this deadline and asked us to help them. We were able to bring the idea to functional & cosmetic prototypes in 4 months, ready for the launch at the Mobile World Congress technology fair.

Approach

 

With a small core team of experts and an integrated approach, we are able to develop fast. With a new product segment, it is always hard to decide which user and use case to focus on. Using our specification loop we were able to distinguish a clear list of features and intended usecases.

Result

 

With our help Panasonic was the first to launch a 4G security camera. They were very pleased with the final design. The product launch was a big success, and SLIMDESIGN was asked to develop the camera further and to support the production.

Engineering

In our first cosmetic and functional prototypes we already accounted for issues that might impacted the production in later stages. This way, the risk during implementation was greatly reduced.

Prototyping

Our prototypes work and look the same as the final product and can be used for product launches, consumer tests, or internal reviews.

Production

We supported Panasonic with sourcing, tooling, certification and production and made sure a high-quality product was delivered.

 

Tijmen Vos, Panasonic camera manager, CTO:

 

“SLIMDESIGN was great to work with. They were able to design and create a very high quality cosmetic and fully functional prototype within a few months.
The launch at the Mobile World Congress fair was a great success, making Nubo the first 4G security camera on the market.
Afterwards, they undertook the final engineering and supported us throughout the sourcing, tooling and production phase.
I would highly recommend this very experienced team. They are proactive and a pleasure to work with.”
