Home Security That Respects Privacy

09 January 2018

There’s no question that home security has been bolstered by technology, but there is an unnerving aspect: Most camera systems see, hear and store everything.

That’s the issue Angee Technologies Ltd. set out to address. When the company’s “Angee” device is armed, it’s always on alert — but video is only sent to the cloud when a user accesses it via app to view the live stream — or a threat is detected. When users are home, Angee turns and faces the wall. Data is also encrypted on both ends, and is only accessible to users.

Angee features a 360-degree HD motion tracking camera and sound recognition, and is designed to get “smarter” as it learns about a user’s security needs.

According to the company, the security solution has already generated over $500,000 in Kickstarter. Its official launch was announced today at CES 2018.

The company also plans future Angee updates to address other home threats, such as fires, shattered glass and water damage.

Get a dog and become good friends with your neighbors. You won't find a better security system than that. And your dog usually respects your privacy not to mention being great therapy on top of that.

Yes indeed.

A very normal solution.

But these are not normal times - and other knew it and they knew it long ago.
