Netatmo unveils a new product in its Security range: the Smart Smoke Alarm. Netatmo's Security range already includes Welcome, the indoor security camera with face recognition, that recognizes the faces it sees, and Presence, the outdoor security camera that detects and resorts on people, cars and animals.
People worry about the security of their homes when they're away; it's a source of anxiety for 70% of English people'. They want solutions for monitoring and protecting their homes.
Home Security Devices
With its extended Security range, Netatmo now offers a comprehensive system for home security
Thanks to Artificial Intelligence, connected home security devices make precise assessments of suspicious situations, such as detecting a break-in or the outbreak of fire. Unlike conventional security systems, which require human analysis, these Artificial Intelligence algorithms understand what is going on in the home, trigger the appropriate response and alert the user in real time.
With its extended Security range, Netatmo now offers a comprehensive system for home security. If it detects smoke in the house, the Netatmo Smart Smoke Alarm triggers an 85dB alarm and sends a real-time alert to the user's smartphone. The user receives a notification identifying the room in which the smoke was detected: ‘Smoke detected in the kitchen’. The user knows at once if there is smoke in their house. They can immediately contact a neighbor or the fire department, to stop the fire spreading; or escape if they’re in the house themselves.
Smart Smoke Alarm
The user can install as many Smoke Alarms as they want, and can access them from their Netatmo Security App. Each detector can be named on the basis of its location (‘Kitchen Smoke Alarm’ or ‘Kids' Bedroom Smoke Alarm’ etc). The 85dB signal, if triggered, can be switched off manually or from the App. The Netatmo Smart Smoke Alarm is cowered by a 10-year battery, which equates to the recommended service life of smoke detectors.
Thanks to its self-check function, the Smoke Alarm runs on-going checks to make sure it is working properly
The long-life battery guarantees reliable operation for 10 years, so there's no risk of the Smoke Alarm's battery being flat when a fire breaks out. Before the Netatmo Smoke Alarm reaches the end of its recommended 10-year service life, it sends a notification to the user's smartphone reminding them to change it. Thanks to its self-check function, the Smoke Alarm runs on-going checks to make sure it is working properly. It sends weekly resorts that can be consulted on the App.
Array Of Connected Devices
The Netatmo Smart Smoke Alarm will be compatible with Apple HomeKit. Apple HomeKit enables an array of connected devices in the home to collaborate with each other. The user controls their connected devices and can view their data via the Apple Home App and on the locked screen of their iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
The user can activate these scenarios with a simple gesture on their Apple Home App
With HomeKit, the user can also create customized scenarios to connect their Netatmo Smart Smoke Alarm to other smart home devices. For example, they’ll be able to connect their smart lighting to their Netatmo Smoke Alarm. The lights will turn on in the house if a fire is detected. The family will be alerted and will be able to leave the house quickly. The user can activate these scenarios with a simple gesture on their Apple Home App.
Netatmo Security App
The Smoke Alarm is also compatible with IFTTT, a platform that allows the user to connect hundreds of services together. With IFTTT, the user connects the data from their Netatmo Security App — which controls the Smoke Alarm — with other devices, Apps and services. The user can program customized rules or combinations of actions called ‘Recipes’ to automate and control different aspects of their connected home. For example, they can receive an emergency call in the event of fire.
The Smoke Alarm is a wireless device and connects automatically to the home Wi-Fi network via the App. The installation is quick and easy: the Smoke Alarm just needs to be screwed to the wall or ceiling, following the installation recommendations included in the pack. The Netatmo Smoke Alarm is CE and NF certified. In compliance with the applicable regulations, a red LED flashes discreetly every 10 seconds to show that the Smoke Alarm is working properly. If it detects any smoke, it starts flashing more quickly.
