Wemo unveils new Smart Video Doorbell with Apple HomeKit support


Wemo, the home automation and IoT brand from Belkin International, recently announced a new generation of smart home solutions built for the future of the connected home. Introducing the Wemo Smart Video Doorbell and redesigned smart plugs and lighting solutions with support for Matter over Thread, Wemo commits to creating a seamless smart home future with fortified security, and without third-party apps. 

The Smart Video Doorbell, features an expanded 178-degree field of view, 4MP high-resolution camera with enhanced night vision and optimal zoom clarity to provide users with more insight into what is happening at home. Working exclusively with HomeKit Secure Video, the Wemo Smart Video Doorbell is reportedly easy to setup and manage through the Home app on iPhone, iPad, and Mac. With HomeKit Secure Video, video is privately analyzed by the user’s HomePod mini, Apple TV or iPad using on-device intelligence to determine if people, pets, or cars are present, and video recordings are end-to-end encrypted and securely stored in iCloud, with an iCloud+ plan. Features like Face Recognition, built on the privacy and security of HomeKit Secure Video, makes it possible for the Wemo Smart Video Doorbell to let users know of visitors based on people tagged in the Photos app or identified in the Home app, and Activity Zones define the areas where motion is detected in a camera’s view.

The Wemo Smart Video Doorbell is the third product in Wemo’s robust accessories collection to offer HomeKit integration, eliminating the need for the Wemo app. In a strategic move to decrease reliance on its own cloud, and double down on one of the world’s most secure home networks, Apple HomeKit, the doorbell joins the Wemo Stage and Wemo Smart Plug within this fortified smart home ecosystem. This move also allows for easy setup, automatic updates, and seamless control of devices within the home’s HomeKit network.

To provide an option for hassle-free installation, Wemo has partnered with OnTech, one of the largest smart home service providers in the US dedicated to the installation, setup and personalized education of smart home products. The Wemo Smart Video Doorbell supports existing systems powered by 16-24 V AC transformers with 30 VA or higher power.

“We are thrilled to have members like Belkin adopting Matter and are excited at the prospect of seeing Matter-enabled products under the Wemo brand come to market with the launch of our specification and certification programs,” said Jon Harros, director of certification, CSA.
