What better way to identify an intruder in your home than with a security camera that offers a panoramic view? Smanos has just unveiled its new UFO Panoramic Wi-Fi HD Camera. It’s a security camera that captures a 180-degree or 360-degree view of your home’s interior so that the only thing that goes unidentified in your household is … well, your camera itself.
Now available for pre-order starting at $149, the camera comes in black or white and boasts a pretty snazzy design that looks like it belongs more in outer space than it does in your living room. It comes fully armed with an HD fisheye lens, night vision, and motion detection mechanisms, and can either be paired with an existing Smanos Wi-Fi security system, or operate entirely on its own.
If you mount this guy on a wall, you’ll be privy to a 180-degree field of view, and if you place it on your ceiling, you’ll get a full 360-degree look at the goings-on of your home.

Of course, the UFO comes with an iPhone or Android app that lets you constantly observe activity, all from your smartphone. And you can set up your Smanos system to send you push notifications upon detection of any unidentified motion, or save and share snapshots or video clips of footage captured by way of the smartphone app.
“We first teased our UFO camera at CES earlier this year and received great feedback about not only its futuristic design, but the need for homeowners to have a 360-degree view of their home to help keep their homes even more secure,” said Brian Stark, general manager of North America at Smanos. “This camera makes an excellent addition to our suite of home security products, which we are constantly evolving to exceed the design and technological expectations of consumers.”
You can preorder a UFO from Indiegogo now for the early-bird price of $149.
