Vision artificial intelligence (AI) company Kami has released a new smart video doorbell with face biometric capabilities.

The Kami Doorbell Camera utilizes edge computing technology and advanced AI to enable human detection and facial recognition features.

The device is, therefore, able to notify users when someone is at the door, identifying their face and storing it in a private Face Album of biometric images, accessible exclusively by the camera owner via a unique PIN.

Along with its facial recognition features, the Kami Doorbell Camera also offers two-way conversations, can stream or record live video, and warn off intruders.

According to the company, it was developed to foster users’ desire to live in smart homes.

“The Kami Doorbell Camera was inspired by a greater need for safety and peace of mind as people spend more time at home and consumers’ increasing desire to reside in smart homes,” explained Kami CEO Yamin Durrani.

“However, we noticed one gaping hole in the smart doorbell market — it was lacking an extremely advanced security solution that also puts the user in complete control of their privacy,” Durrani added.

In terms of specifications, the device can record footage up to 1080P HD via its 160-Degree wide-angle lens and comes with six 850nm IR LEDs enabling colorful night vision video and clear viewing up to 16 feet.

It can be powered by USB or AC Power options, and its detachable battery lasts for 150 days on a single charge.

Of course, since it is a smart video doorbell meant to be installed outdoors, the Kami Doorbell Camera features an IP65 durability rating making the device dust-tight and protected from water.

Users will also be able to subscribe to Kami’s Cloud Storage service to have  24/7 uninterrupted video recordings up to 30 days of footage protection.

“In designing our video doorbell camera we considered all the ways people live in their homes to elegantly combine accelerated intelligence with a level of customization and privacy that is unmatched in today’s market,” Durrani said.

“The result is a solution that provides comfort, safety, and peace of mind.”

The biometric Kami Doorbell Camera is already available on the company’s website and on Amazon, with a special launch price of $99.99.
