More than 2.5 million home intrusions are reported every year in the United States ending with over $5,000 in stolen property. 85% of police officials believe that home monitoring systems help deter burglary attempts. In this context, 93% of Americans think that having a home security system is necessary. They want solutions for monitoring and protecting their homes.
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 and alert the user in real time, who can then alarm the authorities.
With its Security range, Netatmo offers a comprehensive system for home security.
Homes without security or alarm systems are up to 300% more likely to be broken into. Welcome, the indoor security camera with face recognition, is a game changer in the industry. Instead of the usual motion alerts which require to waste time watching footage, Welcome sends a notification saying that an intruder has been detected in the home, complete with a picture of their face and a video footage. The camera notifies the user exactly who is at home, on their smartphone: the neighbor coming to water the plants while the family is away or a burglar.
With its breakthrough deep learning algorithm, Presence, the outdoor security camera, detects and reports on people, cars and animals. Placed outside the house, the camera analyses in real-time if someone loiters around the home, a car enters the driveway or a pet is in the yard. Presence understands what it sees and notifies the user with smart notifications if something is detected in the monitored area: “Person seen,” “Car seen” or “Animal seen.”
Presence features an integrated smart floodlight that can detect and scare off any unwanted visitors or light the way when it’s dark. In addition, the spotlight can be manually switched on with the App.
