The Point smart home alarm monitors and protects your home from some emergencies, and there is no camera in the alarm for respecting
your privacy. Like the idea? Let’s keep checking.
The Point is an easy-to-use, app-enabled smart home alarm that focuses on your home security and privacy. As shown in the images, the alarm sports a minimal, cylindrical form factor plus the white exterior in order to match various interior decoration styles. Meanwhile, using included adapter, you can mount it on the wall or the ceiling with ease, and the compact design makes it fit anywhere in your house.
Unlike a smart indoor security camera, the smart home alarm uses built-in sound and environment sensors with artificial intelligence to monitor your home including sound, humidity, temperature, ambient light, path light, barometric pressure and more. Based on tracking data the smart home alarm detects specific events such as intrusions, smoke, mold risk, rapid temperature rise, and more. Furthermore, once detecting any risk, using built-in WiFi connectivity it will send notification to your smartphone wherever you’re.
Moreover, using its custom app you can check the status of your home at any time. The smart home alarm works with IFTTT and Apple HomeKit, so the Point can also interact with other smart devices and applications for flexible usage.
The team behind the Point has raised enough fund for the product on Kickstarter, but we can still preorder the smart home alarm by pledging $79 USD. It will be shipped in May 2018.
