Netatmo launches smart home products in New Zealand

Netatmo is a smart home company developing ground-breaking, intuitive and beautifully-designed connected consumer electronics. Truly smart, Netatmo’s innovative products provide a seamless experience that helps users create safer, healthier and more comfortable homes. Below are four of Netatmo’s revolutionary products available in the Australian market:


Netatmo’s smart security cameras, Presence and Welcome, are a new breed of smart security cameras that bring home safety to a new level.




Placed outside a house, Presence, analyses in real-time what is happening outside a home and informs the user with smart notifications: “Person seen”, “Car seen” or “Animal seen” if someone loiters around the home, a car enters the driveway or a pet is in the yard.


Presence’s notifications and recordings are entirely customisable. The user decides whether or not to be notified or to record when Presence has detected movement, an alert will only be sent when necessary.


Features include the Alert-Zones function where the user can select specific zones for detection alerts: around the garden shed, the gate or the garage door. The user will be sent detailed notifications when something happens in these user-defined areas. The Time-Lapse feature collates in 1 min the last 24 hours filmed by the camera. The user views an accelerated sequence of the last 24 hours and quickly knows what happened outside their home, garage or in their garden.


Presence stores videos locally on an internal micro SD card. The user can also choose to transfer them to their Dropbox account or their personal FTP server. Storage is entirely free and does not incur any additional subscription or fee.


The Netatmo Security App is accessible from Smartphones, Tablets, PC’s, Mac’s and Apple Watch’s. Within the app users can stream live videos of what is going on around the house. The timeline screen lists past events and allows the user to review past videos and control their presence devices.


Presence is a Full HD outdoor camera capturing stunning images under any light condition. Its extensive 100° field of view and unprecedented 20-meter detection range provide exceptional coverage. Presence also has an integrated smart floodlight for night time. The Smart Floodlight can be switched on manually in the app or set to switch on when it detects a person, car or animal - or for all three.


The durable aluminium body of the camera ensures Presence is sleek and minimalist in design whilst strong and weatherproof your home will be protected in rain, hail or shine.

Welcome is an indoor security camera which alerts users on their smartphone about intruders using revolutionary face recognition technology. Welcome distinguishes who is home and alerts you immediately about intruders. Welcome sends a notification saying that an intruder has been detected in the user’s home, complete with a picture of their face and a video of the intruder. When Welcome detects familiar faces, such as those of children or grandparents, it sends a notification with their names directly to the app, Welcome can recognise up to 32 familiar faces.


Welcome’s primary concern is to combine security and simplicity. Recorded videos and identification data stay entirely private thanks to the camera’s storage, as they are not saved in the cloud.


Welcome’s unique Pet Detection feature can track motion caused by pets. Thanks to its AI algorithm, Welcome can send a notification when an animal passes in front of the camera, in real time.


Welcome is also able to detect acoustic alarms, sending users a notification and recorded video footage when it hears the smoke alarm, CO alarm, security alarm or when a siren goes off.


Welcome comes with all its features included. No contract, subscription or fee are required to enjoy any of its state-of-the-art features, such as face recognition or storage.


The Netatmo Security App is accessible from smartphones, tablets, PC, Mac and Apple Watch. Within the app users can easily access their videos.
