Self-Driving Car Tech Meets AI Assistant In This Very Smart Home Device
We interviewed GM and CMO Jessica Gilmartin about Lighthouse, the new home security system that thinks of the household (pets included) first
If the words ‘smart home’ still conjure up an image of clunky robotics and remote controls, we don’t blame you. But as designs get sleeker and voice-enabled AI gets exponentially more capable, home tech seems poised to make its big entrance subtle and seamless—and to prompt us, increasingly, to turn away from buttons and screens. That’s the feeling behind Lighthouse, the Palo Alto-based startup set to launch a security system uniting a camera with an AI assistant. The package combines the type of voice commands we’re growing accustomed to through the likes of Alexa and Siri with the computer vision technology found in autonomous vehicles.
