ArcSoft unveils its home monitoring camera with face recognition

ArcSoft, a global leader of image-intelligent technologies, today announced the immediate availability of Detection Zones, a new feature in simplicam® powered by Closeli®. Detection Zones allows users to customize motion and face alerts based on specific areas of a room. Now, parents and pet-owners can minimize alert notifications by eliminating alerts from areas where children are playing or pets are moving. In addition, based on excellent user feedback and suggestions, this update also includes a new user interface that makes editing and sharing videos easier and improved motion and night vision sensitivity settings.

simplicam is the first and only home monitoring Wi-Fi video camera with both Face Detection and Face Recognition capabilities. Users can go from the box to watching live streaming HD video in about three minutes, and take advantage of motion/sound alert via the free Closeli app. In addition, users can talk to family or pets at home through the camera using the microphone on their phone. Premium Closeli Recording Services provide enhanced features, such as recording in the cloud, easy editing and sharing options and unique Face Detection and Face Recognition technology.
