What they do
Created in 2011, Netatmo is a French innovative company developing consumer electronics for a better and connected lifestyle. Its first product, the Weather Station for Smartphone, constantly monitors the environment to enhance life both outdoors and indoors. Since then, the slick Web-connected Thermostat designed by Philippe Starck was launched with great success. More recently, the connected camera Welcome, equipped with facial recognition features, and Presence, connected outdoor camera both received rave reviews.
As Netatmo expands its global reach, with many new products on the drawing board, we are proud to contribute to the company and team’s future.
