Consumer electronics company Netatmo is set to showcase its latest innovation at CES this week – a camera with face recognition technology designed to protect your privacy.
Claiming to be the first smart home camera that its has new face recognition technology built-in, the aptly-named ‘Welcome’ camera registers who walks in the door and when. It works very simply by being connected to a smartphone app, which then alerts the user as to who has entered the house.
As Slashgear writes, this could be a great gadget for working parents, who will be able to rest assured that their house isn’t being broken into or that their children are home safe. Netatmo also recommends that the Welcome camera can also be used for adults to keep an eye on elderly parents remotely.
Videos are recorded in full HD onto an SD card rather than a cloud to increase privacy, and connectivity between the smartphone app and the Welcome camera is encrypted.
