What is a Video Doorbell and how does it work?
Often we have clients ask about how a doorbell cam works. Here is a quick explanation:
In the Doorbell Dark Ages, when the doorbell rang you had to get up from your TV viewing or send other members of the family to check to see who was at the door. In most cases you would look out the window or peep hole to see who was there, and then open the door. Depending on who was there you opened the door wide or just enough to have a short conversation. And if you weren’t home at all you would miss packages or the potential burglars would know you weren’t home.
Fast forward to 2016 and the end of the Doorbell Dark Ages! Today’s Doorbell Cams are smart and now when the doorbell is pressed it still can ring in the house but now it can also alert you on your phone or tablet. Because the Doorbell Cam is part camera you can now see who is outside right from your phone! And you don’t have to open the door to have a conversation. You simply talk into your phone and say, “I am at work” and the person at your door hears you through the doorbell speakers. You don’t even have to be home and you can see who is at the door when you are at work or on vacation. Never miss a package again and know who came to the door, even if they don’t ring the bell! It offers security and cool convenience features all in one.
