Lenovo has just launched a new sub-brand in China, and it’s called ‘Lecoo’. Now this name may sound familiar, as it’s reminiscent of LeEco, and it seems a bit odd that Lenovo opted for that name, but there you have it. This new brand will focus on releasing smart home products, and Lenovo actually announced four new products along with its new smart home arm, which we’ll talk about in a minute.
Lenovo has introduced two smart cameras, a baby monitor, and a smart router in Beijing. The Lecoo Smart Camera R1, Smart Camera S1, Smart Router S1, and the Baby Monitor A1. The company’s new smart cameras actually look quite similar one to the other, though the S1 model is noticeably smaller. Both cameras can be paired with up to three other cameras, in case you want to create a security system at home, and both offer a microSD card support, while they also have a micro USB port on them. Wi-Fi is supported by both of these cameras, and the smaller one does not support motion tracking. The Lecoo Smart Camera S1 is priced at 199 Yuan, while the Smart Camera R1 costs 299 Yuan in China. The Lecoo Smart Router S1 combines white and rose gold colors, and it has four Skyworks antennas on it. This gadget supports dual-band Wi-Fi, and can offer you download speeds of up to 1,200Mbps. This gadget is fueled by a dual-core chip, though we do not know which one just yet, and the device comes with 512MB of RAM and 32MB of storage, while it has a USB 3.0 port on it. The Lecoo Smart Router S1 is priced at 499 Yuan.
The Lecoo Baby Monitor A1 is, you guessed it, a baby monitor. This is essentially a camera which will let you keep an eye on your kid if you’re not in the room, and it can even recognize various expressions children make. You can mount this camera on a wall, or wherever else you want, and it can shoot fullHD video. This camera can look over your kid in the dark as well, as it comes with a ‘night mode’ option, and a 4,000mAh battery is also a part of the package, while a Type-C port is also included for charging purposes. The Lecoo Baby Monitor A1 is priced at 699 Yuan in China, and it comes with unlimited storage.
