It also has 1080p HD and amazing artificial intelligence capabilities. Not only does the Netatmo have built in person detection, it also has facial recognition technology. That means that it can differentiate between an intruder, your dog, and your family. It can recognize up to 32 faces!What I like about Netatmo’s facial recognition technology is that it learns over time who should be in your house and who shouldn’t. You’ll only be notified when the camera recognizes someone it hasn’t seen before, saving you a lot of time checking the app. Instead, you’ll be notified via your Apple Watch or cell with the unfamiliar face itself. I love how instantaneous the notification is. As soon as an unfamiliar face comes into the camera’s line of vision, I’m notified and can decide how to proceed from there. But the coolest feature of the Netatmo’s artificial intelligence is its integration with Facebook messenger. Just as you would type to a friend, you can ask a Facebook bot when people entered and exited your home.

Background: Samsung has had at least some experience in the category of camera enabled doorbells and similar technologies thanks in part to former subsidiary Hanwha Techwin and its SmartCam lineup. However, it has been quite some time since any new products were launched under the Samsung branding. Finalization of the sale of Samsung Techwin to Hanwha Group was completed in 2015, with the newly merged company rebranding as Hanwha Techwin. The Korean tech giant's efforts in the space since that split have been almost entirely non existent. Hanwha Techwin has gone on to continue making cameras and still utilizes Samsung's SmartCam and WiseNet branding as well as online services for the storage and subscription services side of the business. That means that signing up for or checking in on a subscription still relies on Samsung SmartCam site. That includes intelligent face recognition and subsequent alert features which aren't at all unlikely to find their way into Samsung's own cameras if it does decide to release some based on the patented design. Impact: There are some key differences between Samsung's previous offerings in the space, those sold under Hanwha's WiseNet branding, and Samsung's newly patented doorbell camera. The biggest of those is the inclusion of two separate camera sensors. Samsung has been including two cameras in several of its big name products over the past few years and their inclusion here isn't surprising. On smartphones, the company generally uses two sensors to accomplish more accurate depth perception while other companies have used a similar setup to attain more accurate facial recognition features.

A built in spotlight also enables color recording at night, and it has dual microphones for better audio. Plus, the Arlo Ultra’s base station will be compatible with the company’s smart home security kit, due out later this year. All of this will cost you, though: A single camera with the hub is $399, and extra cameras are $299 each. And if you want to save 4K videos, it’s an extra $1. 99 per camera per month, on top of the $9. 99 monthly plan, the latter of which is waived for the first year. Read our full Arlo Ultra Review.
