"This is a way to expand beyond speeds and feeds and to extend more connectivity solutions into the smart home," he said during NETGEAR's press conference. "Our belief is that everything in the home that runs on electricity should be connected. We're excited to make a consumer's home the smartest in the neighborhood."
One product aimed at doing that is the VueZone Add-On Night Vision Camera (SRP $129.99), part of the company's VueZone Video monitoring solution. The two-part system features a separate infrared lamp and a wireless camera.
