Five Reasons To Invest in a Video Doorbell

September 11 2020

Video doorbells, also known as smart doorbells, allow you to virtually answer your door from your phone or smart device. Most video doorbells are able to record video, receive and play audio, and notify you when someone’s nearby, or has actually pressed the bell.

While not the most expensive smart home device, some models are noticeably pricier than your bog-standard doorknocker – so you may be wondering, do I really need to upgrade my front door? We’ve compiled the top five reasons to increase the safety of your home with a smart doorbell as soon as possible.

Security

The first – and perhaps most obvious – reason to invest in a video doorbell, is the added security they provide. It allows you to see and speak to whoever’s at the door before you physically open it, you can record and monitor what’s going on outside your home, and it could potentially deter intruders if they were to notice they were being watched.

It’s not just about unknown visitors either – smart doorbells are also a great way to make sure the family gets home safely. You’ll be able to see when the kids get home from school, when your partner gets home from work, or when your parents get back from their daily errands – quite literally at the push of a button. Plus, seeing your loved ones give you a cheeky wave at the doorbell while you’re away from the nest is a great pick-me-up.

Never miss a delivery again

It seems the postie always knows to arrive just as you step foot into the shower or make a quick trip to the shop. With a video doorbell, you’ll be notified when the delivery driver comes knocking - and if you can’t get to the door, you can always ask him to leave your parcel somewhere safe through the built-in intercom.

Neighbourhood watch

You can watch and record video with a smart doorbell, which means you may be able to retrieve footage of any going’s on around your street, which could be valuable to others around you. When video doorbells or CCTV are installed, it can actually also improve the security of the homes around your own, too.

Interaction with other smart devices

One major benefit of smart tech is their ability to communicate and interact – and a Wi-Fi doorbell is no different. You’ll be able to trigger other devices with your wireless video doorbell – for example, you could set your lights to turn on when someone walks by your home while you’re away, to create the appearance your house isn’t in fact empty.

Tailored to your household

If you’re looking for the best smart doorbell for your home, but you’re worried about too frequent notifications, adjusted sensitivity is a great feature to look out for. Advanced video doorbells, such as the ADT Smart Home Video Doorbell, allow you to choose whether you’d like notifications after sensor detection, or just when the bell is pressed. You can also silence the bell’s chime – handy when the kids are in bed, or you’ve just finished a long nightshift.
