Thanks to Artificial Intelligence, home security cameras revolutionise residential security. Smart home cameras now precisely detect unusual situations. They are for instance able to detect fire alarms before a fire spreads.

As the smart home revolution takes charge, monitored surveillance systems are being gradually replaced by smart security cameras. Less expensive, these new cameras use Artificial Intelligence technology to instantly detect unusual situations and send precise notifications to the users’ smartphones.
For instance, smart security cameras recognise each family member and detect acoustic alarms in the house. Users can catch a burglar red-handed or alert firemen to come and extinguish a fire promptly.
That’s how Christophe, father-of-three and owner of a Netatmo Welcome camera with face recognition and alarm detection, was able to save his house and his dogs from a fire caused by an electronic toy.
“Whilst my family and I were attending a basketball game a few kilometres away from home, I received a notification on my smartphone reporting that our fire alarm had been triggered”, explains Christophe, a Welcome user. “I immediately checked the video filmed by Welcome and saw that a fire had started in our living room. The firemen were instantly alerted and were able to prevent the fire from spreading. It’s thanks to Welcome’s accurate alert that our house and our two dogs were saved from the flames”, he adds.
Welcome is a game changer in the industry as it’s the most advanced consumer indoor security camera. With its state-of-the-art Artificial Intelligence algorithm inspired by the architecture of the human brain, the camera recognises the faces it sees with the highest precision. It accurately learns to recognise faces and sends the names of the identified people to the users’ smartphones.
Welcome also detects acoustic alarms. The camera sends a notification and records a video whenever it detects a smoke alarm, CO2 alarm, security alarm or siren, to better protect the house.
