Ever wondered if your face is –ahem– alarming? You’re about to find out.
Welcome to the facial recognition intruder alarm, simply known as… ‘Welcome’. Unveiled at 2015 International CES, French company Netatmo’s first home security device houses a camera that can tell the difference between your domestic tribe and a dodgy trespasser.
As soon as movement is detected, the device alerts your smartphone, putting a name to the face if recognised. You can also snoop around your home if a stranger is detected, via the Welcome app’s camera feed. Darkness offers no protection to prowlers either, thanks to infra red night vision technology.
Puts a new spin on being the head of your household.
