Netatmo Welcome Camera Plug-In
« on: June 01, 2016, 05:40:25 am »
I've recently got a Netatmo Welcome camera which features face recognition.  After a couple of days' training per face it's doing pretty well.

Netatmo have a published API for the camera which allows retrieval of movement data and snapshots.  Live video is also supported but seems to require a lot more scrutiny of the app and approval from Netatmo before they'll allow it, so I'm not planning to implement that any time soon.

I've written a plug-in which retrieves movement data every 10 minutes and creates/updates a 'Last seen' variable in Vera for each registered face.  If anyone is interested in trying the beta and subsequently wants to suggest additional functionality just let me know via PM or here and I'll send you the files to try.

The API also supports webhooks for sending updates but I haven't even started thinking about that yet.

I am very interested!

Is there a way to reduce the data time in receiving it from 10 minutes to even seconds?  Or perhaps, when a face (specific person) is detected it sends to Vera?

Thanks,

James

@jadragescu

The webhooks api might do that, but you have to go through a much more rigorous process with Netatmo to access that method due to privacy issues.  I don't currently have any plans to do that.

I would like to try your plugin if possible.   Can you send files over?

Also, is there a way to change the refresh rate of getting the data from your plugin (10 minutes to 1 minute...)?

New Netatmo Welcome Users:

If you require a copy of the Netatmo Welcome plugin please send me a private message with your email address.  I'm subscribed to this thread and I'm supposed to receive notifications for new posts, but this rarely works so it might be a while before I remember to check the thread and get back to you.

Hi, I'm also interested in the plugin.
I've tried to PM you, but I've got an error information that I am not allowed to send PM's :(

Any updates on this. I kind of want one, to trigger scenes based on a person, but sounds like it has a long delay.

@nickman2025

The plugin polls Netatmo servers once per minute.  This could probably be shortened (although I seem to recall the API has polling limits), but the camera just isn't reliable enough to be used to trigger scenes.  Quite often it will not recognise a face until someone has been sitting for several minutes, and sometimes it fails to register a face altogether.

It's a good idea in theory, but I'm not sure the Netatmo face recognition will ever be good enough for home automation use.

I get also interrested . Would be nice to welcome people By name when they come in! The delay 1 minutes might be too long.

Has anyone get this kind of set up working?

Are the any other cameras on the market supporting this.
