Everything You Need To Know About Smart Video Doorbells
Have you been missing deliveries when away from home? Or do you want to know who is at the door before you open it? Then you should definitely invest in a good video doorbell which will make life much simpler and easier. Here is a quick intro on how video doorbells work. Once installed, you will be able to see and speak to the person at the door. They have a built-in camera, microphone, and speaker. Smart doorbells also act in a similar way to security cameras.
They’ll alert you if motion is detected in its field of view, so you’ll know if there’s any unwanted visitors to your property.
A few cameras can also save the footage on cloud so that it can be reviewed later. However, this requires a monthly subscription. Some video doorbells even use artificial intelligence (AI) to identify whether it is a person, animal or vehicle they have detected to prevent you getting notified every time a bush mildly wobbles in the wind.
Once a doorbell is pressed, using Wi-Fi, you will receive a notification on your phone or the head unit with the video of the person. The notification is also sent whenever motion is detected in the doorbell’s field of view. If you receive a notification, or you just want to see what is happening at your home, you can use the companion app on your smartphone or smart display to log in to the doorbell’s camera and see who is on your doorstep. The doorbell’s built-in speaker and microphone allow you to converse with anyone in the camera’s field of view too. Most video doorbells also offer integration with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant or HomeKit, so they can be set to work with your smart speakers and smart displays.
Some of the best video doorbells in the market are Arlo Video Doorbell Wired, Ring Video Doorbell 4, Nest Hello, and Eufy Video Doorbell 2K (wireless). Most video doorbells are usually required to be physically screwed to the exterior of your property which makes it difficult for the doorbell to get stolen.
