All of us want to keep an eye on our sweet homes and our lovely pets when we are not around. But, everyone is not lucky enough to sit all day around and monitor it until something remarkable happens. The Butterfleye home security camera may solve some of your problem, but don’t think you can stay home all the time.
There are various smart home monitoring cameras in the market like Flir FX, Nest’s Dropcam, Simplicam and many others. Now, there is a new contender in the market named Butterfleye, a hardware startup company.
The Butterfleye home security camera can learn your routines so that it records only the important bits and notify you when it matters the most. It can be easily connected to your smartphone to keep you in touch with your sweet home.
Ben Nader, Founder and CEO of Butterfleye said:
“There is image algorithm analytics. There is audio analytics. The microphone can recognize certain sounds. For example dogs barking, kids crying. And we’re working on a glass breaking algorithm. Then on the video side we have a technology like face detect, we have a technology like pets and human detect. And learning algorithms to learn ‘oh this home has a pet. And it’s normal for a pet to move around the house and not have any alerts’.”
