Yes, you just need to put the two cameras in the same Home during the setup.
Then when one of them sees someone at home, the other one knows automatically.
Hope this helps.

Thanks a lot, it is a real useful point!

My setup didn't allow cam to see what happening close to the entrance door, what is causing false Motion detection alarms, cos as persons (actually they are known faces) arrived it can trigger (by other systems) some home automation scenarios what is changing picture for Welcome camera.
I want to eliminate those annoying alarms.

How many cameras can be chained as united environment?

There is no limit. You can install as many cameras as you want in the same home, Welcome or Presence.
The application can handle multiple cameras and multiple homes, you will not need to create additional Netatmo accounts if you have several cameras and/or several homes.

Thank you! This is clear %)

What to do with other family members? Should they create individual Netatmo accounts?

Yes, we recommend everyone to create an account. You can invite them to join your home from the settings.

Yes, that work great.
But what about different security levels. Would like the family to only have view accessbut still be able to sign them self out of my house with the phone location feature.

I've recently added a second Welcome to my home. It works OK, except it has to be trained to recognise all the faces that the other one already recognises. That's annoying.

Is there no way the two cameras in the same home can share face recognition data? It would even be OK if you could copy data from one camera to a new one when it is being installed.

Feature to copy faces from one cam to other should be very useful.
