Here at For the Smart Home, we’re huge advocates of the benefits offered by smart home security.
The Netatmo Presence aims to bring a sense of added security to your home environment by offering a list of functionality that ensures you’ll always know what’s going on outside of the house.
At its core, the Presence is an outdoor smart security camera with advanced motion detection capabilities.
With the ability to detect people, vehicles, and pets independently, the Presence utilizes object recognition to let you know exactly who or what is outside the house, wherever you are.
The companion app allows live access to the camera’s feed as well as providing a full log of the history so you can see what the camera caught throughout the day.
Onboard motion detection means that the camera on the Netatmo will only start capturing data when there’s something worth recording and when it does, the device stores directly onto a microSD card for review later.
Simple installation out of the box is coupled with an inbuilt smart floodlight (with adjustable sensitivity) which is enabled when the device deems it appropriate, making it an ideal first line deterrent for any unwanted visitors in the evening.
When it comes to happenings in the night, the Netatmo Presence is also able to shoot footage with a night vision mode so you’ll always get a clear picture, whatever the light level.
The Presence also utilizes what Netatmo call ‘Alert Zones’, a feature which enables you to select specific areas for the camera to monitor so you can be sure it doesn’t capture any irrelevant movement such as the neighbours’ driveway or that family of nesting birds at the side of the house.Learn more about the Netatmo Presence here
