The Netatmo Welcome camera is a golden cylindrical anodized device made of aluminum – the same form factor as the Netatmo Weather Station – and should be positioned in view of your front door.

It adds another level of security to your home and peace of mind for parents who are notified when their kids are home again. It allows you to notifications can be seen on your iPhone, Android smartphone, iPad or Android tablet, on a web browser and also on your Apple Watch.

Like the Presence, the Welcome camera also records videos locally and will save them in your Dropbox account or personal FTP server.

Netatmo Welcome Video Storage

Welcome now offers four options for video storage.

1. Internal storage using a MicroSD card.
2. Free Cloud Storage.
3. Dropbox.
4. FTP.

The app presents the faces seen by the camera in the timeline so it’s easy to keep track of the people in your home. the app informs you that the Welcome camera can recognize your loved ones from each other and from strangers after training the camera to recognize all the different faces captured of each of the residents. In addition, there are no subscription fees because all the video is stored locally and copied to Dropbox or your personal FTP server (if you set these up).

Netamo Welcome Security Camera Short Intro:

Welcome is a new-generation smart indoor security camera. Unlike the usual motion alerts which require you to waste time watching the footage, Welcome sends an immediate alert if an intruder has been detected in your home, complete with a picture of the person’s face and a video recording. The camera uses facial recognition technology to help you look after your children or elderly parents, sending their name to your smartphone to let you know they are well. You can also use the app to disable video recording and notifications for familiar faces. When Welcome hears an alarm, whether it be a smoke alarm, CO alarm, security alarm or the Siren, it will send a notification and record a video. Welcome’s setup is quick and easy: place the camera facing your entrance, plug it in and download the app to connect it to your home Wi-Fi network. Identify your loved ones with a simple click. That’s it. Your home is now protected against break-ins!
