Keep­ing your home safe

Ne­tatmo’s Wel­come uses face recog­ni­tion to tell your fam­ily mem­bers apart from ‘strangers’, and can even recog­nise pets too. The Log­itech Cir­cle 2 and Nest Cam IQ both of­fer sim­i­lar ‘per­son de­tec­tion’ fea­tures, as well as the abil­ity to fo­cus on spe­cific ‘zones’, such as a win­dow or door – but you have to pay a sub­scrip­tion to ac­ti­vate those fea­tures.

D-Link pro­vides a sim­ple – but free – zone op­tion, us­ing a grid that is su­per­im­posed over the video im­age, and both D-Link and Ne­tatmo al­low you to fine-tune the sen­si­tiv­ity of their mo­tion-de­tec­tion fea­tures in or­der to avoid false alarms. The Nokia Home is un­usual as it can re­act to noise as well as move­ment in your home. And speaking of noise, Net­gear’s Arlo Pro has a 100db siren built into its con­trol hub that will prob­a­bly wake up the en­tire street.
