Having a background with enterprise IT organizations, the founding team of Rhombus noticed how difficult existing enterprise video security systems were and wondered why these systems couldn't be as easy to use as the consumer ones but powerful enough for large companies.

For this reason, Rhombus Systems was born in 2016 with its first product being cloud managed security cameras.

Today, Rhombus does not offer simple cameras but AI-powered security cameras and smart sensors. These IoT devices function seamlessly together giving customers unparalleled insights into their spaces. But it's not only that: Rhombus is an easy-to-integrate platform that can be linked to your already existing security system to get the most out of your products. Kisi already has an integration with Rhombus that you can check out at this link.

Rhombus Security Cameras: Top 5 Models

Unlike other brands, the portfolio of Rhombus focuses on offering all the features that you need in just four camera models rather than having a deep portfolio of similar products. For this reason, we're covering the whole product portfolio of Rhombus.

1. Rhombus R100

The Rhombus R100 is the "entry-level" camera of the Rhombus portfolio in terms of price tag, but make no mistake, the performance of this camera is outstanding. R100 features a 2MP image sensor with a 96-degree field of view. The camera is fully weatherproof, making it suitable for indoor and outdoor installation. Like every camera offered by Rhombus, the R100 has AI technology built into the camera that will monitor all events and send real-time alerts to any device.

2. Rhombus R2

Rhombus Security Cameras: Pricing

The Rhombus cameras have one of the most competitive prices on the market if you take into account that you are not only buying a camera but a very efficient security system that comes with it. The R100 starting price is around $200-300 depending on the reseller while the R2 standard starts at $499. Then moving to the premium models, the R2-180 starts at $899, and the R360 and R400 are both listed as $1,199. To these prices, you have to add the cost of the cloud storage and, eventually, the cost of other hardware.

At Kisi, we believe that Rhombus is not only one of the best cameras you can find on the market but also a valuable asset for the overall security of your company. For this reason, we decided to integrate with them and offer you the ultimate security solution for your business.
