ArcSoft’s industry-leading technology ushers in new era for connected households
It’s a wonderful time of year to be taking stock of everything you’re grateful for (such as your health, your loved ones, quesadillas, King Joffrey’s demise, etc.) and setting some resolutions for the new year (like going to the gym more, so you can eat more quesadillas).
As the creative team behind simplicam – the smartest, easiest home monitoring Wi-Fi video camera with cutting-edge Face Detection technology – we’re deeply grateful for all our amazing users whose invaluable feedback helped us grow and improve since launching in August 2014. As for our New Year’s resolution, we wanted to raise the bar (again!) by setting the stage for a completely connected home.
We have a big announcement to make about our super smart home Wi-Fi camera…
Today, we’re proud to release a brilliant new feature that takes “peace of mind” to a whole new level. We’ve had to be tight-lipped about it for a while, so we’re thrilled be spilling the beans about…
Just kidding. (2014 was a crazy year. All the excitement is making us a little goofy).
FACE RECOGNITION. (For real this time. Really. That’s the thing).
Have you heard? simplicam looks really nice under a Christmas tree…
Happy holidays, simplicam fans! We’re excited to bring you our first official newsletter. Keeping in line with the spirit of Thanksgiving, we’ve “stuffed” it full of good things including awesome new app updates, a cool video contest and some feedback from our users – who we are truly grateful for. Gobble gobble.
“simplicam impresses and in some ways even surpasses pricier models…With its lower monthly fees and the addition of face recognition alerts for cloud subscribers, ArcSoft’s Simplicam is poised to take on our highest rated Wi-Fi security cameras…It’s a fantastic option for someone wanting a cloud subscription and all of its related benefits without spending $10+ a month.”
“I confidently and emphatically choose Simplicam…Solidly built, Simplicam just flat-out performs. Night mode was great, and the movement detection controls save you from smartphone notification hell. The Closeli app is easy to use, and the subscription model is both affordable and feature-rich.”

Memorial Day Weekend is almost upon us, which means you and your smartphone are going places and doing cool things. Whether you’re a mobile camera wunderkind who can turn a desert tumbleweed into photography magic, or a shutter-happy tourist who doesn’t discriminate between the Grand Canyon and the sketchiest roadside diner Sloppy Joe you’ve ever seen, there’s picture-worthy gold in them thar hills.
