Introducing a Camera that is Powered Wirelessly, from Ossia

Written by Stephen Vicinanza

Introducing a camera that is powered wirelessly, from Ossia. Ossia will demonstrate its latest ARCHOS Wireless Power Security Camera at the Mobile World Congress, later this month.

The technology Ossia has developed is FCC/CE-approved Cota Real Wireless Power. The technology delivers power over the air, without the need for line-of-sight, and at a distance. The product the company will be showcasing is the ARCHOS Cota Wireless Power Security Camera. The camera won an award at the 2023 CES in the smart home category.

The ARCHOS Cota Wireless Power Security Cameras is a series that is easy to install, and does not need wiring, manual charging, or batteries.

Key Features

  • Does not require battery changes
  • Easy to move,
  • Can be located in hard-to-access locations, where tampering can be a problem
  • Automatically delivers power over the air.
  • No need for user interventions or any wiring or batteries
  • The power source is able to power multiple security cameras at the same time.

“This is the world’s first wirelessly powered security system,” says Jennifer Grenz, CMO and CRO at Ossia. “Security camera batteries are expensive, inconvenient, and notoriously die at the worst time. The ARCHOS Cota Wireless Power Security Camera works consistently and reliably, and receives power automatically, without the worry of dead or low-charge batteries leaving expensive property vulnerable.”

The Wireless Powered Security Camera is being offered for pre-order in two bundles. A three-camera, one Cota transmitter bundle designed for spaces that are approximately 600 to 800 square feet in size. The second bundle is designed for areas of 800 to 1200 square feet and includes two transmitters and six cameras.

The camera must be within 30 feet of the Cota transmitter and does not need to be in the line of sight of each other. The Cota transmitter can power the cameras through sheetrock, wood, and glass. Although not through brick or cement. A setback to outdoor functionality.

“The ARCHOS Cota Wireless Power Security Camera will be the first commercially available wirelessly powered product,” said Doug Stovall, CEO of Ossia, “and is designed to be the world’s easiest security system for anyone to install, maintain, and use. With this system, organizations and builders will be making a huge step toward reducing their reliance on disposable batteries and decreasing their environmental footprint while improving security and overall sustainability.”

The system ARCHOS Cota Camera pairs with the Cota Real Wireless Power offering reliability and system integrity, without the need for batteries, wiring, or manual charging. The Cota system can be purchased as technology or as a finished product.
