Light Bulbs

The Atom AR2 security cam uses a light bulb socket for power

Making its debut at the end of the year, the Atom AR2 features auto-tracking and heat sensors.

Debuting at Computex in Taiwan, the Amaryllo Atom AR2 is a 360-degree home security camera that cleverly uses a home's light socket as a power source, saving you the need to mount it on the wall.

The Atom AR2 comes with auto-tracking and heat sensors (so you can't approach it from behind), and now comes with LED lights so the socket doesn't get wasted, an issue with the older Atom model.

It features a paid cloud storage service for videos, or users can store videos on a microSD card or a local network-attached storage (NAS) server. It will be available at the end of the year, and while pricing has not been disclosed, the previous Atom model sold for $300 (£210, AU$415).
