What happens if you take a home security camera, throw it out, and head back to the drawing board with engineers from the world of self-driving cars behind the wheel?

That’s the basic premise behind Lighthouse. They’re trying to build a camera that, thanks to its 3D-sensing lasers and a mountain of machine learning chops, has some sense of what it’s looking at. After years in the works, it’s going on sale this morning.

Aspect - Lighthouse - Thats - Footage - Security

One aspect of Lighthouse thats particularly unique is in how you’re meant to peruse your footage; it’s aiming to be less of a security camera, and more of an assistant. Rather than scrubbing a timeline, you ask the in-app natural language processing system (think Google Assistant or Alexa, but it only cares about what’s going on in your house) for what you want.
