AI-powered home security system is designed to reduce false alarms

Safety never looked so badass

The promise of most DIY home security systems is their ability
to blend seamlessly into your home. Is that a camera on your shelf
or a vase? Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference.

With Deep Sentinel,
currently on show at CES 2019, there’s no chance of mistaking
what it’s all about—which is scaring the living daylights out
of anyone who tries to break into your home.

Designed by Ammunition, the studio behind
Beats headphones,
Lyft’s Amp
, and one
very expensive coffee maker
, the system consists of three
aggressive-looking wireless security cameras with a 130 degree
field of view and a main speaker hub that communicates with the
local police department and blasts out warnings to intruders.

The no-nonsense exterior provides a shell for the cameras’
AI-powered smarts, which uses “computer vision and deep learning
algorithms” to recognize potential break-ins before they happen.
Deep Sentinel’s team worked with police departments to train the
system to differentiate between, say, a deer crossing your lawn and
a masked burglar on his way to jimmying your lock.

As the company explains it, the three cameras create a perimeter
around the house and keep a constantly watchful eye for activity
that its algorithms deem suspicious. When something unusual does
pop up, Deep Sentinel will alert a call center where on-duty
employees will determine if they should call the police, reducing
the number of false alarms and making it a whole lot more likely
that the police will actually show up.

The system starts at $399 and the surveillance service is $50 a
month with a one-year contract.
