A company called Owl is introducing its first product today: the LTE-connected Owl Car Cam.
It’s essentially a dash cam that films both the inside and outside a car.
If you have a credit card on file, at the end of your Kasa Care subscription plan you will automatically be enrolled into the monthly Premium/Plus plan and your card will be charged accordingly.
You may opt out by selecting the free plan before your subscription plan ends. With Kasa Cam’s Privacy mode you can enable or disable recording of video and audio.
If you know the time something happened, though, you can go straight there, cut a clip, and save it. The company encourages users to share their clips on social networks, like You Tube or Facebook.
The company’s designed a whole feature around this sharing aspect: users can tell the Owl Car Cam to save a specific moment, like a meteor streaking across the sky, as they’re driving.
Please note that when you select this option your camera will not record audio or video, and you will not receive any event notifications.
When disabled, live video and audio streaming still works.
With a free plan, you'll only have access to your last 2 days or less of video history depending on the Kasa Cam’s model number.Owl calls its gadget a full security system because it’s always on and detects break-ins and accidents through sound detection and accelerometers.It sends users a push notification when something is going on, so they can watch the incident live or go check on their car.You can watch the feed live on the company’s companion i OS / Android app (inside footage records at 1440p and outside footage records at 720p), or save certain 20-second moments to revisit in the future.The device is essentially a home security setup, like Nest or Canary, but for the car.

Owl thinks there are plenty of people who want to record police incidents, though, and that the camera setup is easier than a cellphone.
