Interactive home monitoring owl.
Ulo is a cute surveillance camera, a pet owl interacting with you through eye expressions.
Nowadays lots of objects are connected, but none of them truly connects with you.
Ulo creates a unique bond, like no other device.
It redefines the way you interact with objects: an organic communication.
Evidence shows that a number of facial expressions are related to similar emotions across cultures. The language of our eyes is one of the most powerful and effective tools of non-verbal communication.
Eye expressions are an efficient, natural and universal way to connect instantly with Ulo.

Ulo communicates through eye expressions. A webpage allows you to customize eyes color, shape and size to match your interior and your taste. No logos or icons are displayed on the screens, but you instantly know what Ulo has in mind.
For instance, when the battery is low (under 10%) Ulo is tired,
Ulo blinks when you take a snapshot,
Its eyes follow your movements and Ulo squints when someone is watching live video.
Random animations add that extra spark of life which makes Ulo unique.
Eye expressions are possible thanks to new round LCD screens originally manufactured for next-generation smartwatches.
A double tap on Ulo’s forehead will activate the Alert Mode.
Every movement will be recorded and sent via email. Eye expressions are not displayed.
Ulo only stores a few minutes of video locally.
With Direct Access, think of Ulo as your own personal server, so there are no extra fees.
The owl only sends data to your secure devices when needed. Each device has its own password.
Ulo is easy to set up, a detailed user guide is included in the box and video tutorials are available on our support page.
In everyday use, with eye expressions, Ulo needs to be recharged every 2 days. Of course you can also leave Ulo plugged in all the time on a USB port.
On a full charge, Ulo can last 2 days in Alert Mode and 4 hours in Live-Stream.
Ulo works with 3 rechargeable NimH batteries (LR06) minimum 1900 mA. These rechargeable batteries are not provided but can easily be found in any supermarket.
You don't need to remove the NimH batteries to recharge them. Only plug Ulo to a power source.
Ulo is a very simple way to check what is going on in another room. Ulo streams directly on a secure web page or its mobile app.
Ulo Mobile app
When you start the application, now you’ll have to choose between two options.
It is extremely simple to use and only one registration on a cloud server is needed. Then your Ulo will keep in touch with you wherever you go with an easier authentication for the next uses. Cloud Access is compatible with all routers.
When you are connected on the same Wi-Fi network, Direct Access is the best way to discover the full potential of Ulo. With the new “access from everywhere” option, you are able to see what's going on in your home from the other side of earth or from your favorite supermarket!
This configuration needs Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) enabled on your router, most of them can use it.
