One cutting edge technology that many have been deeply afraid of and skeptical about for a long time is facial recognition. However, developers of Welcome, a facial recognition device, trusts that people will accept their new invention.

After a period of use, the home camera learns to identify members of a household. It sends an alert to a connected mobile device whenever it detects any of them entering the house with messages such as “Mary is home”.
