Home security cameras are equipped with HD cameras and face recognition with the aid of which a catalog of “known” people can be created so that intruders are detected. The cameras offer a feed and at the same time work along with sensors to find out potential security issues, for instance, if a window was broken.
If there is any unexpected or abnormal change in humidity or temperature, it will either alert you or call a service automatically. Like if you have left your clothes’ iron plugged and smoke builds up. Many of these robots can be integrated with digital assistants like Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa to make your lives more convenient.
These robots move about regularly so that video surveillance of the entire area can be done easily and effectively from different positions for optimal observation. These mobile robots score over multiple fixed cameras as they do not leave out the blind spots which the fixed cameras are unable to access. The robot moves around the house and thus prevents intruders from coming in.
These robots respond immediately with surveillance recording any suspicious event that might be happening on the premises of your home. This can be rerouted all by itself is linked to the stationary alarm sensors which are then triggered. You can inspect areas of suspicious activity with this robot when directly inside your house or remotely from security stations with the aid of broadband internet networks.

These robots are consistent and dogged in their job and can run almost 24 hours in a day. They are also less conspicuous than humans doing the same job.
