Check out Netatmo's new buzzer -- the Smart Video Doorbell.


Netatmo has been in the DIY home security game for a while now, but we've yet to see a smart doorbell -- until now. The Smart Video Doorbell by Netatmo has a lot of the standard features you expect from a Wi-Fi hardwired buzzer:

  • 1080p HD resolution
  • 160-degree lens
  • Infrared night vision
  • Speaker and microphone
  • Motion detection

But it also has some extras, including motion zones, person detection, built-in video storage and support for Apple HomeKit.

Typically features like motion zones, person detection and video storage come with a monthly fee via an optional subscription. But Netatmo says it's offering everything at no additional charge.

The SkyBell HD doorbell has free seven-day cloud storage, and August doorbells come with free 24-hour cloud storage. But Netatmo is the first to give us all three features for free. Keep in mind that person detection isn't the same as facial recognition -- it won't tell you who it sees, just that it sees a person.

The Netatmo Smart Video Doorbell will hit stores in late 2019. Pricing and international availability has not yet been announced.
