Ooma adds AI camera to smart home security line

Techstination feature for Thursday, July 26, 2018

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        It is called the Butterfleye…with an eye at the end.    A new security camera from the folks at Ooma.    What makes it different?    It features facial recognition….with a battery backup it works during power outages….and includes 16 gigabytes of internal storage and 7 days of free cloud storage.   Senior Director of Corporate Communications Mike Langberg says it is part of Ooma Home Home Security…and the face recognition can be a big help…

“An example I give is if my wife goes to get a glass of water in the kitchen at three in the morning, I don’t want to be woken up with that news.  If there’s a stranger in my kitchen at three in the morning I absolutely want to know about it.”

Impressive.   Ooma Home Security  is self installed and self monitored.
