A company called Owl is introducing its first product today: the LTE-connected Owl Car Cam.It’s essentially a dash cam that films both the inside and outside a car.If you have a credit card on file, at the end of your Kasa Care subscription plan you will automatically be enrolled into the monthly Premium/Plus plan and your card will be charged accordingly.You may opt out by selecting the free plan before your subscription plan ends. With Kasa Cam’s Privacy mode you can enable or disable recording of video and audio.Owl thinks there are plenty of people who want to record police incidents, though, and that the camera setup is easier than a cellphone.Still, I’m not sure people will want to pay a premium and a subscription fee just to have LTE service.
Q: Why can't I hear the sound of the camera when clicking the “Hold to Talk” button on the camera? It can't send and receive voice for instant calls at the same time. All video streams and activities associated your Kasa Cam are private and can only be viewed by those signed into the Kasa Account.People definitely enjoy streaming their car rides on services like Twitch, but Owl is an expensive alternative to just using your phone and keeping it charged.The incident detection is interesting, though, and could be worth the price if it works well.If they’re sleeping through the whole incident, Owl records 10 seconds before and 10 seconds after it first detects something happening.
Users can also review the past 24 hours through the app, although it’ll be a lot of footage with no flagged content to jump to.The system costs 9 at launch, which includes 10 months of LTE service.
