Netatmo’s Smart Outdoor Cameras (with and without Siren) now support Apple HomeKit Secure Video. Users can view videos from their Cameras in the Apple Home app and securely store them in iCloud. This free and automatic software update, available since February 2020 for the Netatmo Smart Indoor Cameras, will be progressively available to all Outdoor Cameras in the upcoming days, including those already purchased.
The Netatmo Smart Outdoor Cameras alert the user in real-time if a break-in occurs. They distinguish between a person, animal, vehicle or harmless movement and immediately warns the user if a suspicious activity is detected.
“Users are particularly sensitive regarding the protection of their home security footage. They want to make sure that their videos remain confidential and that no one can access them. Our response to their concern was to design cameras with local storage. Keeping their data privacy in mind and willing to give them further options, we decided to support Apple HomeKit Secure Video. This allows Netatmo users to securely store activity detected by the Smart Outdoor Cameras in iCloud. On top of local storage, Netatmo users can now choose between 3 back-up storage options to the cloud: Apple HomeKit Secure Video, their personal Dropbox account or their FTP server.” explains Fred Potter, Founder of Netatmo.
