Netatmo indoor and outdoor cameras for enhanced safety

June 2020 Smart Home Automation

Legrand’s Netatmo smart indoor and outdoor cameras are designed to make the home smarter and safer. Cameras are enhanced by sensors and sirens for improved safety and greater peace of mind. The Netatmo system – which is easy to install, configure and manage – encompasses security products, energy solutions (including heating products and thermostats) and weather stations.

The security range comprises smart outdoor and indoor cameras, which provide real-time notifications in the event of a person or vehicle trespassing on a property. Netatmo cameras can be programmed to communicate only useful alerts with the highly accurate Alert-Zones feature and precise notification parameters. According to Legrand specialists, with this system, there is no inconvenience of false alarms.

Outdoor cameras are equipped with an integrated smart lighting system, which provides the convenience of light at night and also deters intruders. Smart indoor cameras, with a facial recognition facility, provide real-time intruder alerts, if an unfamiliar person is filmed entering the home. To protect a family’s privacy, the facial recognition feature is used to pre-record familiar faces and to disable notifications and video recordings of them.

The indoor cameras can also be programmed to offer additional protection in an emergency. This system provides a real-time alert if a fire alarm, smoke detector, or safety siren goes off, enabling immediate action, from anywhere in the world.

With Netatmo, video data can be stored locally on a microSD card, using high-security encryption. This fully secure data can then be backed up to the cloud via Dropbox or an FTP server. Upgrades are accessible at all times without subscription.

An added bonus is there is no need to be a DIY expert or technical wizard to install these cameras. All that’s required is a plug socket, Wi-Fi and a smartphone to download the app.

Accessories for the indoor camera include smart door and window sensors that ensure a complete security system to protect the home. These sensors operate in conjunction with indoor cameras, by detecting vibrations or a door or a window being opened. An immediate alert is sent to a smartphone, saving valuable time in the event of an attempted break-in. A quick glance at the app will indicate if a home's doors and windows are open or shut – an important feature for peace of mind.

For added protection in the home, Legrand recommends the installation of a Netatmo smart indoor siren that operates in conjunction with the indoor camera. The siren automatically sounds a loud 110-decibel alarm when the indoor camera detects an intruder. This system also has an automatic arm/disarm facility that is easy to set up and operate. In the event of a power failure, fire alarm signal or safety siren while users are away, the app gives an automatic alert to the smartphone, so appropriate action can be taken.
