Crave giveaway: ArcSoft Simplicam Wi-Fi home
security camera Want to know what’s going on at home while
you’re away? Win a Wi-Fi camera that streams live video of homestead happenings to your
smartphone, tablet or computer. Important-announcement time: We notify Crave
giveaway winners via email, so please make sure the email address connected to your CNET
account is current. Otherwise you might miss your prize, a misfortune that has befallen
several giveaway participants in recent months. Now that that PSA is out of the way, we’ve
got a brand-new freebie, an ArcSoft Simplicam Wi-Fi security camera. It lets you check in
on your kids, pets, chairs and sofa from your smartphone. The camera has the motion and sound alerts
typical for surveillance cams but stands out for its facial-recognition capabilities. It
can’t actually distinguish between faces, but it can recognize that it’s looking at
one, and theoretically, notify you that a human, as opposed to a cat or a rustling branch,
has triggered its motion sensor. The facial-recognition feature is available
through an optional cloud service starting at $5 a month (ArcSoft is tossing in a $49.99
one-year subscription to the Closeli Cloud for this giveaway). Without cloud-recording
services, you still get motion and sound alerts and live 720p streaming to your smartphone,
tablet or computer via the free Closeli app. In her CNET review of the ArcSoft Simplicam,
Megan Wollerton has a few minor quibbles with the $149.99 Simplicam, but says that “Simplicam
impresses and in some ways surpasses pricier models.
