The Archerfish Solo is the world’s first “thinking” camera. Developed by Cernium, Archerfish Solo is a compact, wireless, IP video camera designed for homes and small business with the smarts to watch for what matters to you. It can be installed indoors or outdoors and uses built-in homeland security technology, allowing it to tell the difference between events that you care about, like children arriving home from school or potential break-ins, and events that don’t interest you, like pets walking in front of the camera. When something that matters does happen, Archerfish Solo notifies you via email, text, picture or video message sent to your cell phone or PC.

Archerfish Solo is cloud-based and does not require a PC connection; it is managed entirely via a Web portal, which allows you to view live video as it happens and set up your device with a simple point-and-click interface.

  2. No mention (on their own website) regarding the >>>quality of the lens<<< which is the key part of the system and be the difference between getting a clear view of a license plate off a car and just seeing a vague glowing image. Sounds like a lot of emphasis on the built-in smarts, which might be very good but nothing on the all-important optics.

  4. Is this one of Aperture Science’s secret project? Soon this will grow turrets and legs, as well as talk to you nicely

    Hmm does that come with a machine gun option on it? Design-wise it looks a lot like the turrets from Portal
