The Kuna smart porch light pulls double duty as a Wi-Fi security camera

This outdoor light fixture offers a weatherized intercom and a built-in alarm to deter intruders, too.

Since it replaces your existing lighting fixture, you don’t need to worry about drilling holes or running an unsightly extension cord to its location. The fact that it’s both a light and a camera is a double-edged sword, though. On the upside, you don’t have an ugly camera messing up your home’s sight lines. On the downside, an ugly camera mounted on your wall can also deter a burglar from approaching—or at least encourage one to quickly leave the premises.

And speaking of unsightly, For one, the Kuna being powered through the easy-to-install light fixture itself, you don’t have to bother with the whole rigmarole of drilling holes, finding a suitable power outlet, running wires and what have you. Also, the fact that Kuna’s camera component isn’t readily noticeable is another plus.
