Gardeners will be able to electronically control outdoor security and garden care.
Presence, Netatmo’s 'Presence' outdoor security camera that distinguishes between people, cars and animals, is the first device from a partnering company to integrate with the Gardena smart system.
From their Gardena smart gardening app, users can see a snapshot view of their garden and switch on and off Presence’s integrated smart floodlight.
Presence’s compatibility will be available for all Gardena smart system users during quarter four this year. More Netatmo devices will be integrated to the Gardena smart system "in the coming months", for an optimised control of irrigation and lawn care.
The partnership launches at the "Showstoppers @ IFA" event in Berlin on August 31 .
Coming in 2018, the next step for extending the Gardena smart system will be compatibility with IFTTT, a platform that allows users to connect hundreds of web-based services and smart devices together.
