Earlier this month Tuya Smart, a startup based in China, unveiled their new Home Security System at CES 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada. While there were countless other “ground breaking” home security and home automation products on display, Tuya stands out due to their cameras ability to differentiate between familiar and unfamiliar faces.

The Tuya Smart Home Security system consists of a hub and a variety of different sensors designed to monitor your home. In addition to the core Home Security System, Tuya Smart offers a smart doorbell capable of alerting you to the presence of a stranger at your door.

Tuya Smart has its sights set on a much larger goal than simply providing a sound option for home security hardware. Tuya claims that their facial recognition algorithms are all inclusive when it comes to hardware. In other words, their software can be installed in products made by any smart home technology manufacturer. This is just another step for Tuya Smart on their journey as the world’s leading AIoT (AI + IoT) platform provider.
