Why does Ooma Smart Cam use facial recognition?

Until recently, only government and enterprise security cameras had facial recognition technology. But today, home security cameras like Ooma Smart Cam also offer this feature for convenience and an added layer of security. Here's why: 

  • It minimizes notifications and interruptions to your day: The ability to distinguish between family, friends, and pets from an actual security threat - such as a intruder - can reduce unnecessary push notificiations and disruptions. With facial recognition, you can configure your settings so that you only get alerts whenever an actual potential security threat is happening near or in your home. 
  • It provides better video footage: In the unfortunate event where your home is burglarized, you have top-of-the-line video footage for identifying intruders. 
  • Analytics help make life easier: The AI-powered science behind facial recognition lets you compile group footage based on user profiles. For instance, you might want to take a closer look at when your kids came home from school. With user profiles for family members, you can easily view this information directly from your smartphone.
