Make Your Life Easier With A Smart Video Doorbell
June 21st, 2019
The days of looking through a peephole in your door to see who on the other side are long gone. Modern technology has taken security to a new level with today’s smart video doorbells. Smart video doorbells are extremely affordable, technologically advanced, and provide safety and security for your whole family.
How Does a Smart Video Doorbell Work?
A smart video doorbell is connected to the internet and will notify the homeowner via their smartphone or other electronic devices that someone is at the door. It activates the moment the person presses the button. Some come with built-in sensors that notify when a visitor is approaching. The homeowner then can use the built-in microphone and camera to speak with and monitor whoever is at the door. Certain models of smart video doorbells also allow the homeowner to open the door remotely using a smart lock.
Smart Video Doorbells Make Life Easier
For most of us, life is busy and complicated, with families constantly on the go. Here are some ways a smart video doorbell can make your life easier and less stressful:
- Answer your door from any location: One of the greatest benefits is that a smart video doorbell works as a two-way audio so you can answer your doorbell from anywhere. The doorbell rings, your phone is alerted. You can view who is at the door and talk to that person without them knowing you are not in the house.
- Secure delivered packages: Did you know that your front door and your porch is where most break-ins occur? Add to that the convenience of internet delivery has developed a new brand of a thief called the “porch pirate”. Porch pirates steal packages of goods ordered online. With a smart video doorbell, you’ll not only know when your package arrives but can stop a thief dead in their tracks. You’ll also have footage to offer to the police should a package theft occur.
- Monitor your home: If you have people who work at your home like a maid, dogwalker, or caregiver, you will be notified of their arrival. Then you can let them into the home to complete their work, without ever having to give them a key. Plus, you’ll know if they are alone or bring unwanted visitors.
- Keep an eye on your family: Most smart video doorbells will allow you to set up notifications that your children have arrived home safely. You can track when they come home and if they brought any friends. This will give you the peace of mind knowing your children are safe at home.
An Affordable Option For Any Home
With the advancements in wireless technology, smart video doorbells are more affordable than ever. Not only is the system, smartphone app, and installation extremely affordable, you’ll save money in other ways. First, most home insurance companies give discounts to customers with security systems like smart video doorbells. Plus, you’ll lose less money on package theft. So ultimately, these smart systems will even pay for themselves!
