Netatmo has unveiled a new Smart Video Doorbell with Apple HomeKit support.

With the Smart Video Doorbell, the user knows who is ringing their doorbell at any moment. The user can see the visitor on their smartphone and speak to them, and respond immediately even when they are not at home. The Netatmo Smart Video Doorbell also immediately alerts the user if it detects people loitering around the house. It is the first doorbell compatible with Apple HomeKit that can be controlled using the Apple Home app or by voice using Siri.

"The Smart Video Doorbell is an ideal way to never miss a visitor or a package. It is also the best response to the growing need for solutions to secure the home entrance," says Fred Potter, founder and CEO of Netatmo. "As with our other products, we have designed the Smart Video Doorbell in compliance with essential principles to guarantee the best smart home experience possible; it's a useful and reliable product, with thoughtful notifications which ensures our users' data protection, and without planned obsolescence."

Here's look at the Smart Video Doorbell's features:

Respond to visitors from anywhere
With the Netatmo Smart Video Doorbell, the user knows who has come to see them, wherever they are. When a visitor rings the Doorbell, the user receives a video call on their smartphone and sees their visitor. They can choose to speak to them - or not - and immediately respond remotely from their smartphone whether they are home, in the office or on the other side of the world.
The user can thus tell the delivery person where to leave a package when they are at the office, turn away salespeople without having to open the door, or welcome guests while preparing dinner.

Enhanced security outside the home
Netatmo's Smart Video Doorbell protects the home from intruders and helps the user feel safe in the event of any suspect activity. Thanks to the people detection, the user knows in real time if someone is lurking around the front of their home. A precise 'Person detected' notification is received on their smartphone and a video of the event is recorded.

Using the built-in microphone and speaker, the user can speak to the intruder and deter them from approaching their home.

For added protection, the Security app alerts the user immediately on their smartphone when someone attempts to deactivate the Doorbell or remove it from the wall.

Fully customisable smart notifications
The Smart Video Doorbell settings can be fully customised. The user can switch off notifications and recordings according to their preferences. They can decide whether the Doorbell sends them a notification and records a video when someone is detected.

The user can also set specific alert zones, for example around the main path. The Smart Video Doorbell then only notifies the user when something occurs in these zones.

Exceptional image quality for protection day and night
The Smart Video Doorbell has a 1080p Full HD camera with a large 160-degree wide angle lens giving optimum video quality.

The camera's HDR function 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 visitors' faces will be clear even against the sunlight.

Netatmo's Smart Video Doorbell protects the home day and night using infrared night vision. The user can always see the visitor at their door, even in total darkness.

Easy installation to replace an existing doorbell
The Smart Video Doorbell is easy and quick to install and does not require professional help. It simply replaces an existing doorbell and connects to the home Wi-Fi. It requires a wired doorbell to work. The Smart Video Doorbell is compatible with all electrical installations, from 8-24 volts up to 230 volts.

The user can access the Netatmo Security app on their smartphone, tablet, PC/Mac or Apple Watch. Through the app, the user can access all the functionalities of the Smart Video Doorbell: specific notifications, access to livestream, call and event history, recordings and storage of HD videos.

No subscription and respects privacy
The Smart Video door bell comes with all features included, including video storage. No subscription or additional costs are necessary to use the Doorbell, nor access its data.

Videos and history of calls received by the Video Doorbell are saved locally on an internal micro-SD card. They can be automatically transferred and archived on the user's Dropbox account or personal FTP server.

In order to ensure a secured transmission of data to the user's smartphone, the Smart Video Doorbell uses end-to-end encryption, guaranteeing the highest level of protection.

Compatibility with interoperability platforms
It has never been so simple to see who is outside your home.

The Netatmo Smart Video Doorbell is the first doorbell compatible with Apple HomeKit. With Apple HomeKit, the user simply receives a rich notification when someone rings, views the Doorbell in the Home app, or can ask Siri to show them the Doorbell to see who is outside the door. The user can also create automations in the Home app to connect their Smart Video Doorbell to other HomeKit-enabled products in their home, according to different combinations. For example, the outdoor lights can switch on automatically when the Smart Video Doorbell detects someone, in order to deter a potential intruder.

An elegant design and weatherproof
With its compact and elegant design, the Smart Video Doorbell fits perfectly at the entrance to any home.

Protected by HZO technology, an innovative nano-film, the Doorbell is fully resistant to all weather conditions - rain, snow, humidity - as well as dust and dirt.
