Netatmo Launches Welcome in Hong Kong, the First Smart Home Camera with Face Recognition

Netatmo, an innovative company developing consumer electronics for a better and connected lifestyle, announces that Welcome, the first smart home camera featuring revolutionary face recognition technology, is now available in 20 stores across Hong Kong.
With 1 in 5 people working more than 52 hours a week in Hong Kong, it can often be difficult to find time to spend with children, parents and partners. Netatmo brings Welcome to Hong Kong to encourage smarter living and offer peace of mind to those caring for kids, elderly or simply wanting to keep their home safe and secure.
The award winning product sends the names of the people it recognizes to the user’s smartphone. Its breakthrough face recognition technology puts names to the faces it sees and notifies the user when it detects an unknown face. The Wi-Fi connectivity offers users peace of mind while they travel or are away from home. The state-of-the-art home camera offers a full HD broadcast in vivid colours, an extensive 130° view angle and an outstanding night vision. 
Welcome won four awards as part of the renowned “2015 CES Innovations Awards” in the following categories: “Smart Home,” “Home Appliances,” “Digital Imaging” and “Tech for a Better World”.
Welcome requires no extra fees
Welcome  comes  with  all  features  included:  smart notifications, video recording, video storage as well as  timeline  of  events.  There’s  no  contract,  no  fee, and  no subscription  required  to use any  of Welcome’s features. The full App use is entirely free. The  product  purchase  price  covers  everything.
Welcome, designed to protect privacy
Welcome was conceived with the greatest respect for privacy, providing reassurance without surveillance. Privacy settings are fully customizable. For each family member, the user decides whether or not Welcome should send notifications or record footage. Parents are able to respect their adolescent child or partner’s individual privacy needs.
Recorded  videos  and  identification  data  stay  entirely  private  thanks  to  the  camera’s  storage,  as  they  are  not saved in the cloud. Furthermore, access to the camera from the user’s smartphone is secured by a bank -level encrypted connection to guarantee the highest level of protection.
Welcome, a seamless experience
Welcome’s setup is straightforward: the camera only has to be plugged in and paired to the free App, available with iPhones featuring iOS 8 and Android smartphones 4.3 and above. The user can access the Welcome App from their smartphone, tablet or PC/Mac. The dashboard screen displays every person currently home. It plays a live stream video sharing what is happening at home. The timeline screen lists past events and people detected by the camera as well as allowing you to review past videos.
Welcome, a revolutionary camera with minimalist design
Welcome is a  full  HD  camera  capturing stunning  images  under  any  light condition.  Night  vision is guaranteed thanks  to  Welcome’s  powerful  infrared  LED.  Its extensive  130  degree  field of  view  provides  unprecedented coverage.
Made of beautiful anodized aluminium, Welcome has a unique and pure design that blends seamlessly into any interior.
