Ucam is a blockchain based security camera manufactured by TENVIS Technology Co., Ltd. It was introduced in January 2020 featuring 1080p High-definition video, night vision and motion detection.[1][2] Ucam makes use of blockchain authorisation[3] and 256-bit encryption[4] to prevent common hacking techniques such as brute force password hacks and data breaches.[5]

Ucam is based on the IoTeX blockchain platform which implements and validates users' decentralised identities. It uses the InterPlanetary File System for decentralised firmware updates.[6]

Due to its privacy by design concept, Ucam is not compatible with virtual assistants.[7][8]

Awards[edit]

Ucam won the Consumer Electronic Show Innovation Award 2020 Honoree in the Cybersecurity & Personal Privacy category.[9][10]
