Originating from the inventors work on self-driving cars technology at Stanford, Lighthouse, equipped with 3D sensing and AI technology, literally is the home "security camera you just ask" and has the "right stuff, right out of the box." With these quips, this $299 camera definitely sounds distinct from other home security cameras. Gartner named Lighthouse a Cool Vendor in Personal Devices in May 2018. Let's look further at this amazingly engineered camera...
Lighthouse's exclusive and optional AI Service is available at + $10/month or $200 one-time. The AI Service can determine such real life situations as "kids coming home, whether the dog walker’s running late or if an elderly parent wasn’t in the kitchen at the normal time." Lighthouse includes security alerts, face recognition, an interactive search engine, a 30-day video history and "knows the difference between people and pets, kids and adults, and who you know and those you don’t."
For those concerned about privacy concerns, how does Lighthouse stack-up? You can turn the camera off automatically or manually for total privacy. Family and trusted guests that have access to the app, van help lessen false security alerts and get better notifications for home activity. Strict access permissions for video access increases privacy. Connections between the Lighthouse app, your camera and Web Services on our Amazon cloud servers are bank-level AES encryption- giving extra peace of mind.
