Facial recognition is no science fiction anymore. It’s slowly being integrated into our world, specifically now in the areas of gaming and security, and it’s only going to get more prevalent and advanced, helping the world to identify with each other with much greater ease and convenience. One of the bigger hits in facial recognition coming out of CES is the Netatmo Welcome Camera, a facial recognition camera you can install in your house.
Netatmo Welcome Camera Abilities
Simply point it at a person and have it memorize their face, which is done through the iOS or Android-compatible app. Then, place it somewhere it can see a few faces.When people come in, the app can notify you when they’re home. The 130-degree field of view ensures you’ll be able to see everyone when they come in, and that nobody can sneak by the camera. Similarly, if an unknown face pops into view, the app can alert you and you can figure out who’s in your house.
While some might view this camera as infringing on privacy, the Netatmo Welcome Camera is designed not to leak your private details to anybody who asks. But if you need to keep track of the kids, or an elderly mother-in-law, or an untrusting roommate, it’s an interesting option.
