Smart IP camera has a full range of features but high levels of product homogeneity. In addition, they can only be categorized based on application usages, for instance smart IP cameras for baby care will specialize in voice detection and for elderly care will focus more on video surveillance and real-time interactions.

Smart IP camera is a composition of smart living and therefore it is a must to establish a platform on which various smart living products are consolidated. This will put IoT companies into an advantage compared to traditional security ones; since the smart security market is only at a nascent stage, it is too early to tell who will dominate in the future.
