Smartthings needs a biometric cam

Having a biometric camera that can recognize you would open up a host of awesome automations, like being able to announce who is in the house or running routines just for you. Being able to tell were u are or other family members in which rooms so u could give commands thru Alexa to trigger different routines like a poor man’s Jarvis.

Netatmo can do this with their indoor Welcome cam. However, you have to use IFTTT for the integration with SmartThings.

Netatmo Security works better with IFTTT

There may be a couple of other cameras that can also do it through IFTTT, I’m not sure.

Samsung itself has announced that it will no longer be making smartthings-branded hardware, so you can’t expect a new ST camera from them.
