Hands-on: Withings Home Plus Video & Air Quality Monitor with Apple HomeKit support

in General Discussion edited January 2017
While a number of HomeKit-connected cameras were showcased at CES last week, Withings goes a step beyond just video, integrating an air quality monitor into its offering as well.

The Withings Home Plus Video & Air Quality Monitor integrates with Apple's HomeKit platform, providing users with smart alerts, including screenshot notifications when events are detected via noise or movement.

The Home Plus offers round-the-clock security, with a 24-hour timelapse view, two-day diary of events, and continuous recording options. Users can view HD video of their home from an iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Apple TV.

Withings's camera also has a baby monitor mode, featuring night vision and two-way talk. It also has built-in Lulla light and music programs.

Finally, beyond just a camera, the Home Plus also has an air quality sensor that can monitor your home and alert users to pollution spikes.

In a demonstration at CES, Withings showed how the Home Plus integrates with Apple's own Home app in iOS 10. A dedicated "favorite cameras" section within the app can provide users with a quick live view of their home.

    Thanks, could you elaborate further on what functions you could perform from within the official Home app (or via Siri). I'm hoping to avoid using the devices own app if I can. Cheers
