Netatmo, a leading smart home company, has announced its Smart Video Doorbell, which will be available to consumers in the second half of 2019.

Since its unveiling on January 6th, the Netatmo Smart Video Doorbell has won a home appliance award at the CES 2019 Innovation Awards. Previously, eight other Netatmo products have won awards in this competition.

“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,”

said Fred Potter, Netatmo’s founder and CEO.

Like the Netatmo Welcome Indoor Security Camera, Netatmo’s Smart Video Doorbell has artificial intelligence features built-in. Not only can the camera detect movement, but it can also differentiate between people and other inanimate moving objects, creating smarter notifications for the user. If the camera detects a person, it will automatically notify the user with a video clip. Similarly, the user can be notified if someone attempts to tamper with the doorbell. Finally, the user can create alert zones such as a main path. All notifications are fully customizable to prevent unnecessary alerts.

The camera in Netatmo’s Smart Video Doorbell features 1080 HD video display, the industry standard, as well as a wide viewing angle of 160 degrees. In addition, the camera utilizes HDR technology to adjust to light changes that occur throughout the day. At night, the camera uses infrared night vision, allowing the user to see their visitors even in total darkness. “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,” said Potter.
