It's Judgement Day for Alexa with AC Worldwide’s all-seeing Terminator Speaker

Red-eyed, voice-controlled security cam speaker should make thieves think twice
29 July 2017

Smart security cameras are normally anonymous little chunks of plastic, designed to blend into your home furnishings, not stand out like a killer robot in a nursing home. But what’s scarier for a burglar to see on a shelf as they crawl through your kitchen window: a small beige square with a lens on it or an 18in metal skull with glowing red eyes? AC Worldwide’s T-800 speaker (from £275, S$490) has full Alexa support, plus a camera built into the left eye, so you can see who’s wandering around your home in real time via the accompanying app, with a year of cloud backup included for recordings. Hasta la vista, uncertainty.
