Smart home technology is a growing trend in the consumer market, though few companies have the hardware available to reach the same consumer market that buys smartphones, tablets, and smartwatches.

Amazon is unashamed of its AI, Alexa, and wants to bring Alexa integration to all of its smart home products. Home security cameras are one of the more popular items in the smart home market, particularly because it helps homeowners monitor their home activity when they're away at work, on a business trip, or out of the house for a night on the town with friends.

With home security cameras popular these days, one of the most popular online retailers worldwide now has its own first smart home security camera for interested buyers.
