What is a Video Doorbell?

A video doorbell is one of the latest home automation products that allows you to identify who is at your doorstep before you open your door. The first line of defense for Calgary homeowners, a video doorbell will allow you to:

  • Speak to whoever is outside
  • See who is at your doorstep before giving access to your home
  • Record footage of visitors who approach your door while you’re away or unable to answer

These smart home devices typically use WiFi to stream live video to your smartphone and offer a variety of features including motion detection and interoperability with smart locks and other home automation products for greater home security.


3 Benefits of Investing in a Video Doorbell

A video doorbell is an innovative home automation product that works as a camera and a two-way communications device. It gets even better when installed as part of a home security system.

Here are 3 useful things you can do with this home automation product:

1. You Can Answer Your Door From Anywhere

When someone rings your video doorbell, it chimes like an ordinary bell, but you’ll also get an alert on your smartphone. Once you tap the alert, you’ll be able to see a live video stream of the person at your doorstep. They won’t be able to see you but you can have a conversation through the bell’s speaker and microphone.

Added Advantage: This applies whether you’re at home or away, enabling you to answer your door and protect your home from your couch, your desk at work, or even when you’re away on holiday!


2. You Can Protect Your Delivered Packages

Have you ever experienced the worry of having a valuable package being left on your porch when there’s no one home? With a video doorbell installed as part of your home security system, you can now have total peace of mind!

How it works: When the delivery man rings your bell, you can unlock your front door with the smart lock icon that appears on the video call. When he/she leaves, you can lock up just as easily.


3. You Can Catch a Suspicious individual in the Act

As part of your smart home security system, a video doorbell can become a security camera, able to capture motion-triggered clips and alert you of any activity outside your door.

This makes video doorbells a great way to:

  • keep an eye on any activity on your porch and/or driveway
  • trigger a porch light to come on when there’s motion, deterring criminals
  • give you a well-lit video clip so you always have a clear view of any outdoor activity, whether it’s day or night

Added Advantage: Should your video doorbell catch something strange - such as a suspicious caller or a potential burglar, you can easily download the clip and share it with your local police department.
