Netatmo’s Smart Video Doorbell With HomeKit Support Likely Coming Soon
Netatmo first announced that it was working on the Smart Video Doorbell, complete with HomeKit support, way back in January of 2019. We’re 18 months later and it’s still not available, but that might be about to change.
The market for HomeKit-enabled smart video doorbells isn’t one that anyone would call full right now, and the arrival of a new contender from a company like Netatmo would be very welcome indeed.
Netatmo has now updated the device’s product page with an installation guide as well as a full seven-minute video that goes into how the thing can be put into place. None of that is needed unless a launch is just around the corner so fingers are crossed and hopes are high.
Installation, thankfully, sounds pretty easy and the doorbell is compatible with 8-224V wired chimes as well as 230V systems, too.
Easy installation in 5 steps:
Install the chime module next to your current chim
Remove your existing doorbell
Screw the wall mounting plate in place
Connect the wires
Fix the Video Doorbell to the mounting plate
Of course, now that we know how easy this new video doorbell is to install, we need to get our hands on it. Hopefully, it’s now only a matter of time before we can take it for a spin – over to you, Netatmo!
