Cloud camera startup Angelcam claims to make security cameras smart, with an "app store" including free cloud storage and live viewing and advanced apps like heatmaps, anonymization, and more.

We tested Angelcam to see how well it performed and how it compared to other cloud camera platforms like Dropcam/Nest. We tested advanced apps like heatmaps, counting, and the anonymizer, which blurs people in the FOV, shown in this demo:
