Withings is a company that has been building "smart" products since the company released a "smart" scale in 2009. That's way before the newfangled "Internet of Things" concept hit the mainstream.

Hunting around the company's website, it's clear that its mission is to develop a suite of products that can track and report on you and your family's health and welfare 24/7. The company's next product, Home, is a next-generation nanny cam.

The smartcam comes, of course, with a Hi-Def video feed wherever it's placed. It comes with a 135-degree viewing angle, night vision and two-way audio. Its face-recognizing capabilities, though, are potentially game changing.

If you place the camera in a baby's room, the phone will track and notify you about the infant's movements, sounds and facial expressions. You can pick priorities, or just look at a to-the-minute feed of what your baby's up to.
