It supports 30fps @ 8K, but was connected to a TV that was only capable of 4K...

Reverse bait and switch marketing

Onlooker: That camera’s picture is incredible... still not quite worth the price...

Salesguy: Oh, I totally agree.  But now imagine it’s 4x as incredible...

Multiple Video Doorbells Announced

Video doorbells were a common presence in CES this year, with a count beyond what the notable product announcements on media outlets. While there are new variations such as Maximus dual camera, most followed the industry trends with facial recognition and other analytics coming into focus.

Hanwha at a consumer show shows they have no regard to the security channel.

They're not exhibiting, they just had a meeting room.  I'd be curious to see who they are meeting with.  Knee-jerk reaction says they were probably meeting with folks who can move their consumer grade low-end stuff, but that's just speculation.  It could also be a good venue for HQ types to meet with HQ types from supplier companies.

Great coverage. Prior to this, my only news about the CES was about fragile masculinity, haha.

I see the ADT's Command system is the Honeywell Lyric system.  Does anyone know if there is anything new about Honeywell's (Resideo) Next Generation of security products?  Last year they had a system on the trade show circuit claiming to combine the features of Vista, Lyric and Lynx and would include a hybrid panel.  I'm reluctant to invest too heavily in more inventory right now, and have been encouraging clients to hold off on upgrades until Honeywell releases their latest system.

We have some details on the new Honeywell / Resideo security panel in our Imperial Capital report, which I am copying below:

The main pitch was for Honeywell's new intrusion / security / automation panel, which, in the video below, they called the 'most well received product in the company's history', though the company is ~6 weeks old (joking aside, we did not clarify but presumably they mean Honeywell Home products).

Resideo touted the panel would be easier for dealers to install, and even allowing end-users to upgrade themselves by inserting 'cartridge' modules into the base station without requiring technician 'truckroll' service calls. They also mentioned the new system will include 'interchangeable backplates' for devices like keypads, so upgrading basic alphanumeric pushbutton units for touchscreens is possible without rewiring or reconfiguration of the system.

The company says there are no plans to discontinue incumbent Vista alarm panels but long-term transitions would happen in the next ~5 years.

If you’re tired of all the flashy, smoke and mirrors bs, head on over to the 3irobotics booth
