Smart home security: a smart door and a slew of new cameras
Security is a massively important layer of any smart home or office setup. Cameras are largely one of the most popular items when it comes to smart home security.
Whether you have them to keep an eye on things internally (like your kids and pets) or externally (suspicious activity and theft), they prove time and time again how effective they can be at alerting you to what is important. Here are all the smart home security gadgets to know from CES.
The Belkin Wemo Smart Video Doorbell is a new doorbell cam capable of syncing up with Apple’s HomeKit Secure Video. It has facial recognition and smart notifications, which are particularly useful when monitoring activity from afar.
A 178-degree field-of-view and a 4 MP high-res camera with enhanced night vision make sure you can see everything you need to as well.
For example, the camera has clear zoom capabilities for when you need to see things a little more closely. Lastly, the device brings support for 2.4 and 5 GHz dual-band Wi-Fi connectivity.
You can preorder the Belkin Wemo Smart Video Doorbell here for $249.99.

Eve Security Cam will also send notifications upon detection of people, animals, and other potential triggers, including packages. Infrared lighting and a 2-way microphone also expand options.
One of the key features, however, is the floodlight. The powerful floodlight will illuminate its target area, adding one more deterrent to potential wrong-doers.
You can get the Eve Outdoor Security Cam here when it releases in April 2022 for $249.95.

Three of the most significant additions include a futuristic bathtub (available in multiple variants), a security cabinet for vanities, and a wall-mounted control system that lets you fill connected tubs automatically. If you are looking to boost your bathroom makeover game, you might want to wait for these slick new items.

The most advanced version is the Infinity Experience Freestanding Bath. It is surrounded by a hinoki wood base and uses PerfectFill technology to maintain the perfect temperature and water level.
The water is then able to flow over the sides, while the tub produces relaxing fog and LED lighting effects. This creates an experience inspired by Japanese hot springs. You can even add essential oils to the mix.
