Video doorbells are advanced safety devices. In fact, they may be one of the most underestimated of all safety devices available today. While humble, the video doorbell is a powerful tool that allows you to conveniently monitor your doorstep.
How Video Doorbells Work
Video doorbells are equipped with a camera, motion sensors, and two-way audio, and can be integrated with your security system. When the doorbell detects motion, it starts to film and sends an alert to your phone. This allows the user to see the activity and virtually answer the door without giving away the fact that they may, or may not, be home.
