AN ALARMING SITUATION

Neatmo PresenceLots of security cameras around, but “Presence” from Netatmo won four innovation awards at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. This is future stuff, because it won’t be available till next Fall at the earliest. But it is the edge of the wedge, as they say, and shows how sophisticated surveillance cameras can be.

This one can provide color video even in low light and can be adjusted to react to small things, like a dog, or possible menacing movements, like those from a person. After analyzing the data in real time, it figures out whether a stranger is loitering nearby, a car is creeping up the driveway or a pet is in the yard.

We couldn’t get a price yet, but the surveillance cameras business is crowded and competitive, so we would guess around $300 when the light goes on.
