HomeKit Secure Video features, interface leaked from Apple Store iPad

In a video posted to YouTube, Apple's forthcoming HomeKit Secure Video technology has been exposed, and shows what the software's artificial intelligence will flag for the user.

While it isn't yet clear when the already announced HomeKit Secure Video feature will arrive in iOS 13, it is apparently already fairly far along in testing. A video has been uploaded to YouTube, said to be captured from an iPad in an Apple Store.

... The new feature will allow HomeKit security cameras to locally encrypt video and then store it in Apple's own iCloud servers where it is out of reach of prying eyes.

...Currently, they must rely on third-party servers to store their video which are not necessarily as secure —or private —as Apple's own.

I really like the idea of local storage and the option of iCloud, without exorbitant subscription fees. All you need is HomeKit compatible cameras.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men
except by believing all possible evil
of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

Perfection is the enemy of progress. -Winston Churchill

-An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I don't see anything in the article that mentions local storage. I only see that video is encrypted locally before being uploaded to iCloud.

I'm pretty sure it was mentioned on iOS Today or MacBreak Weekly.

I'll try to check that out when it's posted for on demand.
