Thanks to the Somfy Security Camera and the Somfy Protect mobile app, you can be warned remotely if your smoke detector has been triggered.
The integrated Security Camera microphone is always listening when detection is activated. The camera intelligently analyses the sound signature of a fire alarm: it is therefore capable of reporting this event to notify the user in the form of an alert.

Operation:
The fire alarm detection requires a Security Camera which is either autonomous are connected to a Home Alarm system.
For the fire alarm detection to work, the Security Camera shutter must be open, regardless of the current activation mode (activated, deactivated or night mode).
It should be noted that in all cases, privacy is respected: if the shutter is closed, the microphone is off and there is no audio recognition.

Caution: when the camera sound is switched off (speaker icon crossed out), the microphone is also switched off, the fire alarm detection cannot work.

If a fire alarm is detected, you receive:

  • a push notification
  • an SMS (if the Security Camera is connected to a Home Alarm, and only for administrators)
  • an e-mail
  • an alert on the dashboard of the Somfy Protect app

You can deactivate the fire alarm detection if you wish. To do this, access the “Settings” menu then “My equipments”, then select the camera.
Press “Fire alarm detection”, the selector to deactivate this function is now available.
