Hi @Netatmo,

Some answers on this topic would be appreciated. A one year old promise that has not been fullfill deserve at least an update, on this forum or by any other media, but please, consider all your customers that have so much interest in your product !

I've just installed my outdoor Presence camera and appears that there's still no option for HomeKit video. Is this correct?

Yes it is correct. I got the information from the support team, that the HSV will be available till end of the year. Maybe they are waiting for iOS 14

Thanks for that - I've connected mine to Dropbox today and will look at using my Mac as FTP server which will be far more efficient.

Has anyone here used their Mac as an FTP server, and if yes, what software did you use?

Anything new on this topic? Is HSV still planned for Smart Outdoor Camera?
I planned to buy few of these soon, but HSV is a real dealbreaker for me.

From Netatmo HelpCenter :
How to enable HomeKit Secure Video:
Make sure your Camera is configured with HomeKit first. Then, open the Home app, tap on the Camera to display the live stream. At the top left corner of the screen, tap on the gear icon to access the Camera settings page. In the "Streaming and recording" section you will be able to choose the "recording" option, which will activate HomeKit Secure Video.

Note: HomeKit Secure Video is only available for the Smart Indoor Camera
They dis not mention anymore the outdoor cam.

Last time they did communicate this way they cancelled the feature. They was suppose to support Netatmo Tags on the outdoor cam. After 1 year of « coming soon » the remove all the references and drop the feature. I have still some useless tags here at home :(

This would be really appalling. I just hope they are still testing...
I can't have the indoor section of my security system working on HSV and the outodoor not...

Now that you have released another useless colors update of the Netatmo app, can you please focus on this again? we don't care about brand design, it's just for Marketing/UI/UX guys, normal people just want that stuff works as it should.
