Today, Netatmo expand their smart home product line up to include a new Smart Alarm System with Camera.
The system is sold in three parts allowing you to set it up and expand it as you need.
The below Smart Indoor Camera indoor sounds exactly like the existing Smart Indoor Camera which was previously called Welcome, and I assume it is just the same product. I reviewed the Netatmo Welcome back in April and it is probably one of the best indoor cameras there is thanks to the facial recognition.
Smart Indoor Camera
The Netatmo Smart Indoor Camera alerts the user in real-time with precise notifications. It uses facial recognition technology to distinguish between a stranger, a loved one and a harmless movement. When the camera detects an unknown face, the user is sent a real-time alert to their smartphone with a photo and video of the event.
Smart Door and Window Sensors
Smart Door and Window Sensors pick up any movement or vibration, indicating that someone is trying to force user’s doors and windows open. The user thus instantly receives a precise notification on their smartphone such as “Movement detected at the kitchen window”.
Smart Door and Window Sensors also allow the user to check the status of their doors and windows by opening the app. Depending on the selected settings, the Sensors can also send an alert if a door or window has been open for an amount of time specified by the user.
The Smart Indoor Siren
The Smart Indoor Siren works with the Camera and the Smart Door and Window Sensors. It automatically triggers its deafening 110 dB alarm when the Smart Indoor Camera detects an intruder, or if specific Door and Window Sensors detect movement at a door or window.
The user receives a precise real-time notification on their smartphone, such as “Unknown person detected”, and video of the event filmed by the Camera.
The user can also trigger or deactivate the Siren in the Netatmo Security app.
Customising the system
The user can customise the Smart Alarm System with Camera settings in the Netatmo Security app and only receive relevant alerts. For example, the alarm can be set so that it sounds only if the user is not at home, depending on whether various criteria are met, such as if the Indoor Camera detects an unknown face or a movement, or if specific Door and Window Sensors detect movement at a door or window.
A range of pre-recorded sounds such as barking or a regular beep can also be activated from the app to simulate a presence and deter burglars.
To make things simpler, the Smart Alarm System with Video activates and deactivates automatically when the user leaves home or returns home. Thanks to the Smart Indoor Camera's facial recognition technology, the system detects user’s presence in their home and turns itself off.
Lastly, the user can deactivate all alerts sent by the Door and Window Sensors when members of the family are at home. In this way, the user will not receive any unnecessary notifications if a loved one opens the windows to air the house.
