We saw a bunch of new home security cameras at the year's virtual CES, ranging from Alarm.com's "touch-free" doorbell (details below) to a camera-equipped LED floodlight and even a robot vacuum with a built-in home monitoring camera. Scroll down to check them out.
Alarm.com's Touchless Video Doorbell is designed as a "touch-free" device that rings the doorbell when motion is detected, rather than when someone rings the bell. There's even text on the doorbell itself discouraging people from ringing it. I'm skeptical that people would notice that small text and actually not try to ring it, but we'll just have to see for ourselves when we try it out.
