Netatmo, the leading French smart home company for a safer and more comfortable home, announces the availability of its Smart Video Doorbell in the US. The Netatmo Video Doorbell allows the user to see who is at the door and answer it from anywhere. When someone rings the Doorbell, the user receives an alert on their smartphone and can then speak to their visitors. The Doorbell also helps secure your home’s entrance as it alerts the user if someone is lurking around the doorstep.
Respond to visitors from anywhere
With the Netatmo Smart Video Doorbell, the user knows who is at their door even when they are not at home. When someone rings the Doorbell, the user receives a video call on their smartphone and sees the visitor. They can then choose to talk to the visitor – or not – directly from their smartphone, whether they are at home or on the other side of the world.
Therefore, the user can tell the delivery person where to leave a package when they are at work or welcome guests while making dinner.
Enhanced security outside the home
The Netatmo Smart Video Doorbell protects the home from break-ins and helps the user feel safe in the event of any suspicious activity. Thanks to its Artificial Intelligence algorithms, it can differentiate between a person and a harmless movement. If someone is lurking around the door, the user will receive a “Person detected” notification on their smartphone and a video of the event is recorded.
Using the built-in microphone and loudspeaker, the user can call out to the intruder and deter them from approaching their home.
Fully customisable smart notifications
The Smart Video Doorbell settings are fully customisable. The user can disable notifications and video recording depending on their preferences. If a person is detected, the user can choose whether or not the Smart Video Doorbell sends a notification and records a video. Therefore, they can decide that the Doorbell should only send an alert and record a video when someone rings it.
With the Alert-Zones feature, the user can set specific people detection zones according to the layout of their house: around the main path, the gate, the garage door, etc. The Smart Video Doorbell will then only notify the user when an event takes place in these areas.
No subscription fees and complete data protection
All features of the Smart Video Doorbell are available free of charge, including video storage.
The Doorbell’s call history and videos are saved locally on an internal microSD card. They can also be automatically transferred and saved to the user’s Dropbox account or personal FTP server.
The microSD card is encrypted to ensure a high level of protection for its contents. For the secured transmission of data to the user’s smartphone, the Smart Video Doorbell uses end-to-end encryption.
Easy to install by replacing an existing wired doorbell
The user can install the Smart Video Doorbell themself, by keeping the existing wired chime and replacing the doorbell button with the Netatmo Smart Video Doorbell. It is compatible with most electrical installations, from 8-24 volts up to 230 volts. The user can check whether their installation is compatible with the Netatmo Doorbell via an online tool.
The user connects their Smart Video Doorbell to the home’s Wi-Fi network to control it remotely. They can then enjoy all its features through the Netatmo Security app on their smartphone or tablet.
Excellent image quality for day and night protection
The Smart Video Doorbell has a Full HD 1080p camera with a 140˚ wide-angle lens for optimal video quality.
The camera’s HDR feature adjusts to sudden changes in light and allows the user to clearly see what is happening in front of their home, whatever the lighting conditions. This means that the visitors’ faces will be clear even against the sunlight.
The Netatmo Smart Video Doorbell protects the home day and night thanks to its infrared night vision. The user can always see the visitor at their door, even in total darkness.
Apple HomeKit compatibility
The Smart Video Doorbell is compatible with Apple HomeKit. The user can create custom scenarios to connect their Doorbell to other smart home devices, according to different combinations. For example, when the Smart Video Doorbell detects a person, the home’s outdoor lights can switch on automatically to deter a potential intruder.
With HomeKit, the user can stream the videos recorded by their Smart Video Doorbell using voice commands. They can ask Siri to show them their front door to find out what is happening at home (“Hey Siri, show me my front door”).
An elegant and weatherproof design
With its compact and elegant design, the Smart Video Doorbell fits perfectly at the entrance of every home.
Protected by HZO technology, an innovative thin-film coating, the IP44 rated Smart Video Doorbell is entirely waterproof and resistant to all weather conditions – rain, snow, humidity – as well as dust and dirt.
The Netatmo Smart Video Doorbell retails for $299,99. The product will be available online from January 6th, 2021 and can be pre-ordered starting from today on www.netatmo.com, www.legrand.us and Amazon.com.
