Gun Detecting Smartcam Startup

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Jul 27, 2015

Wild claims are nothing new for security products, but one startup is claiming its home camera can detect guns.

GunDetect claims it can stop gun crime and accidents in your house cold by sensing guns it can see. The new company is so confident in its claims, potential customers can try it out for free. So we did.

In this note, we look at the product and see if they can deliver.
