FTP v SFTP

I am getting the impression that the Netatmo Presence only supports FTP and I believe DropBox but does not support SFTP. This is a surprise, a disappointment and a concern. These days security especially in the category of IoT is a big issue and only supporting an inherently insecure protocol like F...

Presence and only sending notifications when no-one at home

I have seen a review which implies you can configure the Presence to only send notifications e.g. of a person when it knows there is no-one at home. The review that mentioned this suggests this requires also having a Welcome. Whilst I already have a Welcome and I am intending to get several Presence...

Max horizontal adjustment angle?

The pictures of the presence clearly show that the vertical angle of the presence can be considerably adjusted and that it is recommended to have it at a 30º from the vertical angle. Less clearly the pictures show it is also possible to have it set to a horizontal angle. What is the maximum horizont...

Light sensor?

I could not find an indication as to whether the Presence has a light sensor. By this I don't mean does it use IR to detect the 'presence' of a person, car or animal, but so that it can detect whether it is actually necessary to turn on the floodlight. It would after all be stupid to have the floodl...

Re: Do I need a tri-port valve?

My central heating system which was installed before I got a smart thermostat does have a 'three way valve' aka. tri-port valve. It can therefore either heat the hot water only, the heating only, or both. The boiler also has a programmer which defines the times hot water and heating take place, if b...

Netamo and Home Automation standards

I can see that Netamo products are compatible with for example Smartthings although it is not clear if this is thanks to customer contributions or done by Netamo themselves. What I would like to know is what home automation standards Netamo products are officially compatible with. Apple HomeKit? NES...
