SEATTLE, July 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Wyze Labs, Inc. is proud to announce its partnership with Xnor.ai, which will bring together Xnor's ultra-efficient and low-power AI computer vision capabilities to Wyze's line of affordable, capable smart home products to benefit Wyze's burgeoning community of users. The integration underscores Wyze's singular mission of making advanced technologies accessible to consumers at extremely competitive price points: Wyze's new AI capabilities are available to all existing users today via a free firmware update for Wyze Cam v2 and Wyze Cam Pan.
Wyze Cams will now offer Person Detection powered by Xnor's edge AI capabilities, a feature that automatically identifies when people appear in the camera's field of view. Wyze Cam owners can choose to receive push notifications for real-time alerts when a person is detected in the frame and filter event videos with people.
Xnor's state-of-the-art AI technology is designed to run on-device, without having to upgrade existing hardware, drain computing power or use any bandwidth. Wyze's AI offerings will enable users to quickly and efficiently identify some of the most important clips captured by their cameras - those that contain people - and will reduce the number of incidental notifications pushed to Wyze Cam users.
"Wyze is a company by the community and for the community. Nearly every new feature we ship is rolled out because it was asked for by our members," said Scott Wilson, Wyze Director of Marketing. "Improved notifications was one of those highly requested features so our team went to battle figuring out how we could deliver complex AI on a quality, but highly-accessible $20 camera. Turns out, the answer to this big problem was right down the street from us with our new partner, Xnor.ai."
"It is exciting to see consumer electronics leaders like Wyze embrace the power of AI and improve the experience of their millions of customers," said Carlo C del Mundo, Engineering Manager at Xnor. "We are thrilled to be at a point when the promise of machine learning can become a meaningful part of our everyday lives. This is what AI everywhere, for everyone is all about."
