Camect "Worlds Smartest Camera Hub" Tested

By: Rob Kilpatrick, Published on Oct 18, 2019

Camect is a Silicon Valley startup that claims the "Smartest AI Object Detection On The Market", detecting not only people and vehicles, but specific objects like squirrels, UPS trucks, and more.

IPVM tested Camect's AI and hub UI, examining:

  • How accurately does Camect's AI classify objects? Are people seen as animals or vice versa?
  • How does it handle common false alarm sources?
  • Does it suffer from any missed detections?
  • What cameras is it compatible with?
  • How user friendly is the hub's UI?

Telegram ******: You get back to the UI by clicking the list of detected objects, e.g. in one alert in the report above, you see "Wyze person detection cam saw a person" and clicking on "a person" will take you to the video. Telegram currently enforces that the link opens in a browser, but we're going to file a bug asking if they'll allow the PWA to be used when there is one.

Region ** ********: As IPVM described, the software attempts to automatically learn the region of interest based on feedback you give on the alerts (i.e. click on "thumbs down" and tell it that the alert is unwanted because of the area of the image it came from). However, we do also allow you to draw out one or more regions of interest manually if you want, and even to do somewhat complex logic using overlapping regions with and/or behavior if it comes to that. This feature is hidden away in the UI so it's understandable that IPVM didn't find it. We don't expect most users to use it, but it's mentioned in the docs.

Automatic ****** *********: We have several automatic discovery mechanisms. Our specific drivers include Axis, Hikvision, Dahua, Reolink, Foscam, Nest, Arlo, Wyze, Doorbird, Trivision, Ubiquiti, consumer models of Samsung, and some models of Vstarcam, Dlink, and Trendnet. We have a fallback Onvif driver that works for many brands but currently cannot find the media service on some of them. We also auto-probe cameras with open RTSP ports for several common urls, .e.g although we're never recommend them, the large number of XiongMai-based cameras out there will work.

Native *** ** *********** *** ***: As I mentioned above, the PWA is actually quite a lot like a native app although you install it differently. The biggest caveat is that iOS does not support notifications for PWAs -- but Telegram produces much nicer alerts anyway.
