The Netatmo Smart Video Doorbell is connected to your chime via your existing electrical wiring.
The location of your chime may vary: it is generally found near your door or in your electrical panel.

Please note that, like most wired doorbells, the Smart Video Doorbell's push-button operates on low power.
The Netatmo chime module is therefore essential as it regulates the current between your chime and the Smart Video Doorbell.
This means it is compatible with almost all chimes powered by 8-24 VAC & 230 VAC.

Your Smart Video Doorbell communicates via Wi-Fi with your router, with no need for an extra intermediary box. You can therefore control your Doorbell remotely from wherever you are!
