Equipped with 3D time-of-flight sensor technology and an advanced computer vision system, the Lighthouse home awareness device can easily decipher between false alarms and legitimate security threats. Designed to protect your home when you’re not there, Lighthouse AI’s intuitive smart home monitoring system is fully customizable and caters to your personal security preferences.
Featuring a True Alert security system that can recognize the difference between a cat jumping on the counter top and kids running around the kitchen, Lighthouse “produces a continuously updating 3D model of the scene.” In other words, Lighthouse eliminates false alerts from changing light conditions making it easy for it to decipher between curtains blowing from an open window or the babysitting making a snack in your kitchen.
Notorious for tricking other surveillance cameras, Lighthouse uses state-of-the-art facial recognition technology while it scans for movement. When you arrive home from work, the system automatically turns off knowing that your presence is welcomed. The Personal Recognition feature becomes more sophisticated as Lighthouse gets to know your family members and recurring household guests. That means you won’t get a ping to your smartphone every time your UPS driver drops off an Amazon package.
Other security features include an emergency activation system and night vision technology. Whether you want to sound a deafening alarm or speak through the two-way speaker camera and then call the police directly through the companion app, intruders will certainly know they broke into the wrong house almost immediately. Lighthouse even comes with night vision – keeping your home under surveillance even when the lights are out.
Outside of security threats and eliminating false alarms, Lighthouse is an intuitive device that keeps a video record of your home’s day-to-day activity. If you want to know who came to your front door while you were at work, just simply ask the device: “Who visited the house today while I was at work?” It will instantly bring you to the footage of people who came to your front door. If you want to check in what the babysitter did with the kids, just ask, “What did the kids do between 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. while we were out at dinner?” With built-in HaloVision technology, every time you go back and review footage, color-coded halos will appear and sort out activity among adults, children, and pets.
With just one simple tap of a button, you can request the entire day’s activity from your strategically positioned cameras. Lighthouse is smart enough to edit out periods of inactivity in favor of activity inside your home. The time lapse video can be saved, downloaded and shared all through the Lighthouse app. Whether you want to get pinged as soon as the dog walker arrives at your house or the exact moment when the kids arrive from school, programming Lighthouse is as easy as opening its app. If you want to make sure the system is up and running, you can either check the tri-color LED indicator on the camera or open up the app while at work.
Beyond the security and the home surveillance, Lighthouse is equipped with Next-Level Person Identification software enabling two-way communication through its camera. Armed with built-in speaker and microphone, family members and guests can approach the camera and start waving to send a notification to your phone. From there, you can open up the Lighthouse app and start talking with the person who’s reaching out. Lighthouse will let you know who’s waving and alert you to connect with them.
For those concerned about privacy issues – someone hacking into camera – Lighthouse is connection-encrypted using bank-grade TLS/SSL with 2048-bit-key and AES-256 session encryption, according to the company’s website. The user log-in is backed by “industry-leading SRP-6a/PBKDF2 protocol” with all data encrypted with AES-256.
