The Netatmo Presence outdoor security camera will work with Apple HomeKit in a couple months. 


Chris Monroe/CNET

Smart home manufacturer Netatmo today announced upcoming Apple HomeKit compatibility for its Presence outdoor security camera and Welcome indoor security camera. That means the D-Link Omna won’t be the only camera around that lets you view a live video feed with a simple Siri command. 

It also means you’ll be able to access your Netatmo camera’s settings from Apple’s Home app – as well as create custom scenes and automations with your other HomeKit-enabled devices.

The $200 Welcome (£155 and AU$250 at the current exchange rate) is an indoor cam with advanced facial recognition capabilities. Scan the faces of your friends and family members and the Welcome will let you know when it sees a familiar face — or someone else.

The $300, £230, AU$380 Presence is an outdoor camera that replaces an existing wired floodlight camera. Unlike the Welcome, the Presence doesn’t send an alert when it sees a familiar face, but it does distinguish among cars, people and pets.

Netatmo Presence customers with iOS devices can access these new features in a couple months. Welcome folks will have to wait until the end of the year. So, how do the Welcome and the Presence compare to D-Link’s HomeKit-enabled Omna? We’ll dust off our Netatmo test cameras and report back.
