SimCam is a smart security monitor with a few impressive specs: It can rotate 360 degrees, it has night vision, it works with Amazon's and , and it can even supposedly recognize faces with 99.4 percent accuracy. But the coolest thing about this cam isn't the facial recognition -- the manufacturer says it can also recognize and remember objects.
Set to be released in February, the SimCam is on display at CES 2019. It's from a subsidiary of drone company Simtoo called SimCam Labs.
According to the company, you can train the SimCam to monitor precise locations and objects and the cam uses a patented physical object monitoring technology to let you know if something changes. The company provided a fence and a package as examples: You can get an alert on the app that will specifically tell you that the fence was left open or when it was closed.
The cam also sports a Sony IMX 1/2.3" 5-megapixel image sensor and has an open SDK so avid users can program even more functions for it. Hopefully it'll be intuitive enough so that you won't have to be a programmer to "train" this camera and take advantage of the advanced smarts it has to offer.
At the very least, it will be reasonably priced. SimCam will be $139 as opposed to $200 or more for popular smart cams like. That's about £110 or AU$195.
