Ecobee has today announced a new SmartCamera and SmartSensors, as well as a new Haven platform for monitoring your home security.
As reported by The Verge:
Ecobee's SmartCamera comes with 1080p video and a 180-degree field of view, as well as built-in Alexa, two-way talk and night vision. Meanwhile, its new SmartSensors for doors and windows can give occupancy and entry alerts, have a contact sensor and are totally wireless! Both are part of Ecobee's new Haven security platform, which can be used to monitor both the sensors and your SmartCamera. Unlike some systems, Haven does not link directly to authorities such as the police and fire services. Instead, if any of your devices are triggered, you'll get a push notification from your phone, which can be used to trigger a siren within the camera. As noted in the report:
