Furthermore, Cernium has released a marketing video pitching the Archerfish Solo. It's a clever but misleading piece of marketing. Cernium claims that their system can alert when someone delivers a package but not if a car drives by or a person is walking the door. Almost certainly, they are simply applying detection zones and excluding anything but the front porch of a house. Watch the video:
At this price point, if Cernium can really deliver video analytics that work reliably, not only will it be a massive breakthrough for the home market but it will revolutionize the industry. More likely, it's just excessive marketing. We look forward to purchasing one and testing it. The article states a projected April release date.
