The Kuna Toucan adds a security cam to your outdoor lightsThe $199 Kuna Toucan smartly merges DIY outdoor security with home lighting control.
[MUSIC] You may have heard of the Kuna light fixture, that's a security camera that's basically built into an existing light fixture. Well this is the Kuna Toucan a stand alone camera that retrofits to your existing light fixture. It has 720p HD resolution, it has a 116 degree diagonal field of view, it has motion alerts and it has a 100 decibel siren Built into the thing. So instead of just being a security camera it is actually a security product like a whole security system packed into one device and it was especially easy to install that's because it also comes with a smart light socket that screws in and connects via USB so you attach this USB cable. To the light socket and then you attach that to the camera down below and hide it behind the panel. And it really takes no time at all. It's extremely easy and in return you get a [UNKNOWN]. [MUSIC] So, if something Really love about the [INAUDIBLE] app is that you have dual control. You can pull up a live feed of whatever your camera is seeing, so this is my two [INAUDIBLE] and my backyard but I also have control over the light fixture above it. So if I'm still at work and I realize I wanna flip on the light cause it's getting dark out, I can just hit that button to turn the light on and it will do that for me. It'll also record little many clips In the apps. You can see what happened at any given time. So I can see my backyard camera for two minutes and 30 seconds, there is motion probably when we were outside just a little while ago at 3:12 pm. You can see exactly what happened and when it happened. And if you click on it specifically you can then watch that footage back. So you're actually getting to view what was going on in the past. So if you weren't home and you weren't checking in on demand you could actually see what's going on on the live feed in the past. The cool thing about this too is that Akuna gives you two hours of free footage. So you can look back for two, 2 hours for free without paying anything. If you wanna have a longer history to look back on the clip, you have to pay a fee. It starts at $5 a month but I think the 2 hour windows is pretty solid and it does give you enough Time to see what happened in the recent past. So because it's a discrete outdoor security device. Because it's so easy easy to install. Because it's USB powered, instead of dealing with batteries or a power adaptor. I think the Kuna Toucan is an excellent outdoor security solution. [MUSIC]
