Click on the queries below to see Lighthouse in action.

I hate false alerts (so do we).

“What happened when Bob the Handyman was here last Tuesday?”

“Tell me when you see someone with the dog”

“Tell me when you see someone new”

Let's go live.

What happened while I was out?

What happened when The House Cleaner was there?

Get security alerts only when Lighthouse detects actual movement from people or large objects (like doors) when you're away. Not shadows or pets.

When the handyman stops by while you're away, simply ask Lighthouse to show you what happened. Were they on time? Is everything in order? You'll know.

When trusted guests have access to your home, you still want the peace of mind that all is well. And Lighthouse can tell you if Spot got walked on time.

Train Lighthouse to recognize family and trusted guests by face, and get notified when Lighthouse sees a new one. Like when kids bring a new friend home.

Whether it's the nanny or Grandma looking after the kids, you can check in live to see how it's going.

It's like having a search engine for your life at home. Wanna know what happened? Just ask Lighthouse.

Designate trusted guests and family members, and set searches and notifications around them. Get up to speed on what happened when the housecleaner was there.

Real alerts, not false alarms

Lighthouse is the only camera on the market with 3D sensing technology that virtually eliminates false alerts from shadows and lighting changes. No more workarounds like activity zones.

Next-level intelligence

Our AI and computer vision technology is smart enough to identify — and then ignore — pets, roombas, and fluttering curtains. Because nobody wants a security camera that always cries wolf.

Alerts that look ahead

Be notified for what you want to know, when you want to know it — even if it hasn’t happened yet. Set custom alerts for what matters most to you, and trust Lighthouse will stay vigilant so you don’t have to.

A search engine for your home

Made for capturing bad guys, great for catching shenanigans. Easily search video for kids and pets, and answer the age-old question of what happens when the adults are away.

Tech that speaks your language

The first security camera that can understand your questions, just like Alexa. Our advanced Natural Language Processing interface means all you ever have to do is ask.

Life in HD, 24/7

Check in at home, anytime. Crystal-clear high-definition 1080p live stream and full HD night vision mean you can keep an eye out, day or night.

Why Lighthouse outshines the competition.

When it comes to other security cameras, Lighthouse shines above the rest. We’ve got you covered, past, present or future. See how we stack up — and why it’s really no contest:

pastEasily search the past

app-icon Lighthouse Find the video you want in seconds with our voice search. Boosted by AI, you can search for specific times, dates, and even people. It’s literally as easy as asking.

camera-icon Other cameras Manually scrub through footage and hope you don’t miss anything important. At most, get a list of clips organized per day. Happy scrolling!

pastTrust alerts in the present

app-icon Lighthouse With Lighthouse, when you get real-time alerts, you’ll know they’re important. Our 3D sensing and AI tech can tell the difference between a cat burglar and your actual cat.

camera-icon Other cameras Easily fooled by shadows, pets, and lighting changes, so you’re hit with tons of false alerts — which you often end up turning off. What’s the point of a security camera you ignore?

pastScan for the future

app-icon Lighthouse All cameras show you what happened. Only Lighthouse can be set to look for events in the future. It remembers what events to watch out for, and notifies you when they happen.

camera-icon Other cameras No other camera scans for future events. Instead, the burden is on you to remember to check in at the right times, or review footage right after. Truly, there’s no comparison.

See Lighthouse in action

Lighthouse is the first truly smart home camera, enabled by the most advanced computer vision and AI technology ever put into a home device. It’s the only home security camera on the market that creates a 3D model of the room to understand what it sees, using technology from self-driving cars.

With people and pet detection, facial recognition and so much more, it’s no wonder CNBC praised us as “smarter than Amazon and Google’s home security cameras.” But seeing is believing — so check us out in action below:

Lighthouse in the news.

Forbes

While other security cameras can record video in a binary fashion when motion is detected, the upside of Lighthouse (which can’t be over-stressed) is that you don’t have to hunt through hours of video recording to figure out what happened while you were away from home.

GIZMODO

Despite the cost, no other camera can really compare to what Lighthouse is offering in the smarts department. The Nest Cam IQ comes close, but it’s still not quite as slick. Because of this, the Lighthouse wins the battle for the most artificially intelligent home security camera.

THE VERGE

Lighthouse, with its ping system and advanced AI features, seems particularly powerful, especially considering how it can be customized to your specific lifestyle needs.

PC Mag

In addition to sharp 1080p video, a well-designed app, and a quick and easy installation procedure, the Lighthouse camera offers some very cool technology including 3D sensing, intelligent motion detection, and a voice-activated search engine.

CNBC

The Lighthouse camera isn't so much a security camera as it is a smart set of eyes that can very accurately tell you what's going on. And unlike other cameras, you don't need to scrub through hours of recordings to see what happened while you were away: All actions are saved and easily searchable … It’s the smartest home camera I’ve ever tested.

Popular Science

If the AI functions appeal to you, then this camera is hard to beat. You can do things like asking it what your cat did during the day in plain talk rather than having to scrub through all your footage to see what feline shenanigans take place.

PC Mag

It's the only camera we've reviewed that lets you use commands to create custom notifications and search for videos, and its AI and 3D sensing technology did an outstanding job of identifying people and pets and eliminating false alerts in testing.

Flawless performance!

“This AI 3D camera is insane! 3D scanning totally makes the ‘home camera’ reliable. I can easily look to see what my cats and dogs are doing, when my 2 kids get home from school. Only 1 feature I am waiting for is the ability to record audio with the motion clips. I have Nest cameras and always get false triggers on them. I have never had a false trigger on this one. It’s a little bit more expensive than other cams but it’s totally worth it!”

Awesome camera

“This camera is way cool. Nothing else like this on the market. I love the alerts and the daily recap. The fact that it recognizes people and pets is reason enough to buy the camera…”

Much better than Nest cam

We love our lighthouse

“Just returned from a 6 week roadtrip and Lighthouse worked flawlessly. Nice to see when the plants were being watered and everything at the house was running smoothly. Never any false alerts like our old systems. Would highly recommend Lighthouse for peace of mind and a very SMART system.”

Anne
5 stars
Really cool product!

“Really cool product! It's awesome to have the ability to just ask the Lighthouse what was going on and it finds the specific scenes for you. No endless scrolling through recordings. The "ping me" function is also great.”

Harry G.
5 stars
Amazing advancement in home monitoring technology!

“My wife and I have been using the Lighthouse system in our home for about four months, and it has been working really well. It is just the indoors solution we've been seeking for the past five years. We've looked at every new indoor system that has come along, and none provides the intelligence that Lighthouse provides, accurately and consistently recognizing faces. I especially like the ability to easily set up custom queries and pings with the very smart AI interface. What a great advancement!”

Leonard

Highly recommend best camera I have had and I have had many

“Very good product, highly recommend. Good crisp clean picture lets you identify people, have had several cameras, this one's best one by far.”

Is it possible to fall in love with a camera?

“This was so easy to install and works great. It "learned" really fast who lives here.”
