To protect the home from unwanted intrusions or emergency situations, it's possible to install a safe system
programmable by Eedomus. Some of the most important devices of this system are cameras, locks,
movement sensors, and so on.
There are a lot of different types of Cameras suitable for the Eedomus system. In these units, Netatmo (for
