Netatmo is a French company which manufactures smart home devices.[1] Founded in 2011, it has launched a variety of products including various security cameras, personal weather sensors, and an internet-connected smoke detector.

The company was bought in November 2018 by the French group Legrand to broaden its range of connected products and strengthen its presence in the smart home market.[2]

History[edit]

The company Netatmo was created in 2011 by Fred Potter, an engineer and entrepreneur, and Jean-Pierre Dumolard, a high-tech industry expert.[3]

In 2012, Netatmo launched its first product: the Smart Home Weather Station.[4] In the same year, the company raised 4.5 million euros in funds to speed up its distribution and widen its platform and product range.[5]

In November 2015, the company raised 30 million euros in funds and sold a stake to the Legrand group.[6]

In 2016, French president François Hollande visited Netatmo's offices.[7]

The company increased its number of partnerships with large groups like Legrand and VELUX,[8] and, alongside them, it co-developed smart solutions[buzzword] incorporated into construction infrastructure.

In 2018, during the Consumer Electronics Show, Netatmo announced a partnership with the Muller group[9] and introduced its Smart Home Bot to control its Netatmo products.[10] The VELUX ACTIVE solution[buzzword]—designed alongside the VELUX group[11] —was also released on the market in July.

Netatmo was acquired by the Legrand group in November 2018 and merged with Legrand's smart home branch. The Netatmo brand name was kept.[12]

In 2019, Netatmo announced a new partnership with the company Bubendorff, with which it released its iDiamant, a smart solution[buzzword] for Bubendorff roller shutters.[13]

Products[edit]

Smart Home Weather Station: launched in 2012, this was the brand's first product. It measures ultra-local weather data and is made up of two modules: an indoor module and an outdoor module.[14]

Additional Smart Indoor Module: launched in 2013, this is an accessory for the Smart Home Weather Station.[15]

Smart Thermostat: launched in 2013, this was designed by Philippe Starck. It helps users save energy while maintaining the right temperature in their home.[16]

Smart Rain Gauge: launched in 2014, this is an accessory for the Smart Home Weather Station that measures rainfall.[17]

Smart Indoor Camera: launched in 2015, it is equipped with facial-recognition technology. In real time, it alerts its user in the event of an intruder entering their home.[18]

Smart Outdoor Camera: launched in 2016, this camera distinguishes between people, animals and cars. In real time, it alerts its user in the event of an intruder setting foot on their property.[19]

Smart Anemometer: launched in 2016, this measures wind direction and speed.[20]

Smart Radiator Valves: launched in 2017, they were designed by Philippe Starck. They are used to control the temperature of a home, room by room. They are available as a package for central heating or as a complement to the Smart Thermostat.[21]

Smart Indoor Air Quality Monitor: launched in 2017, this analyses a home's temperature, humidity, noise and CO² level, and provides advice for creating a healthier environment.[22]

Smart Smoke Alarm: launched in 2018, this sends an alert to a smartphone in real time in the event of fire detection.[23]

WeatherMap[edit]

Thanks to the extent of its global network of weather stations, Netatmo has been able to develop the world's largest community of Smart Home Weather Stations. Through this solution[buzzword], ultra-local monitoring of weather can be carried out in real time in over 170 countries.[24]

The Smart Home Weather Stations of users who share their outdoor data are displayed on the WeatherMap, an open-access map that displays temperatures, wind information and levels of rainfall.

The Netatmo weather community even helps improve public weather-forecast services. For example, Norway’s public weather service YR has improved its forecasts for millions of people in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark thanks to the density of the Netatmo community.[25]

Co-developed products[edit]

Through its ‘with Netatmo’ program, the company co-develops—in partnership with leaders of construction—new connected solutions[buzzword] incorporated into the infrastructure of individual homes, whether in new builds or renovation.[26]

Alongside Legrand, Netatmo co-created and launched, in January 2018, Céliane with Netatmo and Mosaic with Netatmo, the first ranges of internet-connected switches and sockets through which lighting, roller shutters and electric devices can be remotely controlled from a smartphone or vocally.[27]

Alongside the VELUX group, Netatmo co-developed and launched, in July 2018, VELUX ACTIVE with Netatmo, the first smart control system via which Velux roof windows, blinds and roller shutters can be operated automatically and remotely with centralised control to maintain a healthy, comfortable indoor climate.[28]

With the Muller group, Netatmo co-created Muller Intuitiv with Netatmo, an electric-radiator connection module for smart heating regulation room by room leading to improved comfort and energy savings.[29]

Lastly, alongside Bubendorff, Legrand and Netatmo together designed iDiamant with Netatmo. With this solution[buzzword], Bubendorff radio shutters can be remotely controlled via the Legrand application Home + Control.[30]
