Ulo-Interactive Home Monitoring Owl surveillance camera
Ulo’s Unique Design
There's no doubt that Ulo's design is what makes the camera special.
In fact, it's more than a camera; it's a pet owl equipped with eyes, a beak, and special features.
(Tired Ulo = battery under 10%)
You know how they say that the eyes tell a story? Well, Ulo has eye storytelling down pat.
Ulo is designed to look like an owl, complete with a large pair of eyes.
The eyes are actually two LCD screens used to display expressions reflecting different situations. For example:
- Ulo squints when someone is watching live video feed.
- It appears drowsy when the battery is below 10%.
- It blinks when you take a snapshot.
- And my favorite, it follows your movement.
To make all of this even sweeter, you can customize Ulo's pupil and iris size, iris color, or the eye reflection.
The camera is hidden behind Ulo’s beak, which is a two-way mirror.
The beak also hides the motion sensor and sits right above the microphone.
On top of Ulo’s head is a capacitive touch button that you can use to turn the device on or off or set it to Alert Mode.
It is a very simple way to check what is going on in another room or when you’re away.
Ulo streams directly (video & audio) on a secure webpage or mobile apps.
This feature is perfect to use Ulo as a baby cam.
(1) Resolution: FHD 1080p, 30fps after reaching a stretch goal

Ulo captures snapshots on demand and sends it on a secure webpage, your dropbox account or directly on your email.
Infrared night vision let Ulo see clearly in total darkness.
Ulo only stores a few minutes of video locally. Nothing is sent over a distant third party server.
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 + a second step authentification.
The setup is easy, a QR code is generated when your device connects for the first time. You just have to show this code to Ulo.
You’ll have to renew this operation every 6 months.
A detailed user guide is included in the box and video tutorials will be available online.
Ulo can "talk" to you with customizable sounds.
In Alert Mode, Ulo can last one week on a full charge.
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.
Ulo can lay on a flat surface or be hanged on a wall.
A set of discrete adhesive neodymium magnet allows you to stick Ulo on every surface effortlessly.

- Dedicated mobile apps for iOS & Android:
- Ulo is also compatible with IFTTT. It’s the best way to extend its purpose.
Ulo functionalities can trigger or be triggered by other connected devices or internet services.
For example, here's my favorite recipes:
But other connected devices or internet services can trigger emotions in Ulo.
For example, weather can affect Ulo's mood:
Different emotions will overlay Ulo's eye movements, here's the first list of animations available:
- Happy / Grumpy / Surprised / Upset / Agitated / Puzzled
- Blinks / Squint
- Change Eye color / Reflects / Size
Other recipe ideas:
- If there is a birthday on my calendar today, then Ulo is happy
- If the pollen count rises above 6, then change Ulo eyes color to red
- If you have an appointment, then Ulo is puzzled (You shouldn't be home)
