Echo Look - The World's First Fashion IP Camera From Amazon

Author: Brian Karas, Published on Apr 27, 2017

Some analytics cameras can tell you if a person is jumping a fence, or loitering in a secure area, but none of them can tell you if the person looks good while doing it. Now, Amazon is tackling that problem.

The online retail giant is getting into the camera business, launching a smart camera that incorporates features from its Echo/Alexa service with an indoor camera. Though Amazon is not targeting home security applications with this camera, aspects of it have the potential to impact the security industry.

Inside this report we analyze Amazon's Echo Look Camera.
