Netatmo has announced today that the long awaited smart video doorbell will be available from the 28th September. The Netatmo smart video doorbell will work with HomeKit and its own Security App.
The Netatmo doorbell comes in a compact and elegant design that should fit perfectly at the entrance to any home. It has a Full HD 1080p camera with a 140 ̊ wide-angle lens camera that also supports night vision to ensure recordings are clear at night. As with the Netatmo smart outdoor camera, the smart doorbell is fully resistant to all weather and dirt thanks to IP44 HZO technology.
As with its other products, the Netatmo Smart Video Doorbell will work with the company’s Security App. But best of all, the smart doorbell does not require a subscription like its competitors. When using the Netatmo Security app, you can check the area around the doorbell in real-time. But when someone presses the doorbell buzzer, you will get a notification that someone is at the door. Accepting the notification, you can talk to the person at the door.
The Doorbell’s call history and videos are saved locally on an internal 32GB microSD card and can be accessed via the Security app. In addtion to this, it supports Dropbox and has NAS support. Connectivity is provided by Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (2.4 GHz).
Netatmo says that customers can install the doorbell themselves. You need to have an existing wired chime to replace the doorbell button with the Netatmo Smart Video Doorbell. It is compatible with most electrical installations, from 8 to 24 volts up to 230 volts. Customers can check whether their installation is compatible with the Netatmo Doorbell via an online tool.
The Netatmo Smart Video doorbell will work with HomeKit at launch, but the company has said that HomeKit Secure Video support will come later this year. Although it will still work with HomePod chimes via iOS 14, but you will need to wait for HKSV for facial recognition features.
