Presence outdoor security cameras can actually distinguish between: people, cars, and animals—and report suspicious activity accordingly.
Netatmo says that Presence outdoor security cameras have Smart Sight, a feature that can analyze what’s going on in real-time. That means that these cameras will know if someone is hanging around the house, if a car pulls into the driveway, or if a pet is running around the yard.
When the Presence detects one of those things, it can send out a message that says “Person Seen,” “Car Seen,” or “Animal Seen.” Of course, you can also set the system to deliver which notifications you find most important. That way, you won’t have to get an alert every single time the dog is wandering in the yard.
When you want to peek in, the Presence can deliver 1080p HD video, a 100-degree field of view, and pinch-to-zoom features. It even has infrared night vision and an integrated smart floodlight. This allows the camera to capture bright, clear images, even during the darkest hours.
The Presence is easy to install; it just replaces your existing outdoor light. There are also no monthly subscription fees. The camera stores footage locally to a microSD card, but you can set it up to transfer that footage to your own personal FTP server.
Other features include WiFi support, a 4-megapixel CMOS sensor, and the option to set specific zones for motion detection. The app can be accessed from a smartphone, a tablet, a PC/Mac, or an Apple Watch.
“Presence goes way beyond existing outdoor security solutions on the market,” says Fred Potter, founder and CEO of Netatmo. “As the only consumer outdoor security system using a sophisticated deep learning technology, Smart Sight, Presence is able to analyze and report precisely what’s happening outside the home. It provides the best response to the fast growing demand of outdoor smart security systems.”
Netatmo will start selling Presence outdoor security cameras sometime in the third quarter of 2016. Pricing has yet to be announced.
