No time to keep checking the feed from your home security camera? French consumer electronics company Netatmo has an answer: what it calls the first smart home camera with face recognition technology.
"We take moving images from a HD camera in your home and have that recognize your individual family members and send an immediate notification [to your smartphone] telling you who's at home when you're not," Netatmo's chief operating officer Matthew Broadway told CNBC.
The 'Welcome' device connects to the user's smartphone through Wi-Fi, sending a stream of high-definition video feed. For evening, the smart home camera night vision capabilities. The unique feature of the home camera is the ability to detect and identify faces through moving images, whereas older face recognition technology was limited to still images.
