Hugo, a new smart home camera from startup Hubble can read facial expressions and act based on these.

The product, introduced at the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, knows various emotions shown by the face, including anger and sadness. If it detects a lonely expression, it can play automatically music, turn on cooling systems in the home, or read audio books for kids. The camera can also distinguish people from other things and sense motion. Just like many other products introduced at CES, it comes with Amazon’s Alexa digital assistant built-in for voice control and access to more than 500 different apps.

As regards connectivity and storage, the Hugo smart home camera links to smartphones via Wi-Fi and a free app. It has alarms for noise, motion and temperature, and can send alert messages to the authorized mobile device. Recordings taken can be stored in Hubble’s secure cloud or on local storage.

Emergence of smart home cameras like Hugo tell that improved face recognition technologies, which became prominent recently in cameras and systems used for commercial transactions and verification could also gain ground in home security.
