Frequently Asked Questions | Video Doorbells

ANSWER: A Video Doorbell is a security device that combines a traditional doorbell with a built-in video camera, allowing homeowners to see and communicate with visitors at their front door through a mobile app or other connected mechanisms. When someone rings the doorbell or triggers the motion sensor, the camera captures video footage, and the homeowner receives a notification on their smartphone or tablet. The smart doorbell lets the home owner use a smartphone app to watch and talk with the visitor by using the doorbell’s built-in high-definition infrared camera and microphone. They can be either battery operated or wired. Some smart doorbells also allow the user to open the door remotely using a smart lock. These devices have become popular for enhancing home security, providing homeowners with a convenient way to monitor and interact with visitors, whether they are at home or away. Video doorbells can also act as a deterrent to potential intruders and provide valuable footage in the event of suspicious activity or package theft.

ANSWER: Video doorbells keep your home extra safe, deterring burglars and enabling you to see who’s at your door from a safe distance. Plus, if vandals or burglars do strike, a video doorbell provides a strong source of evidence.

ANSWER: Battery-powered video doorbells can be placed virtually anywhere you have adequate WiFi. For hard-wired models, you’ll need to install it where there is an existing, functioning doorbell delivering sufficient power. If there isn’t enough power, your trained Installation Guy technicians can provide and install a new transformer at an additional cost. If you don’t have power at the desired install location, we can assist with that as well.

ANSWER: We recommend installing the doorbell in a location that provides a clear view of your entryway. Some manufacturers offer accessory plates that adjust the angle of your doorbell providing an improved view.

ANSWER: Most video doorbells require a functioning chime inside your home. If you don’t have an existing chime or if it’s not compatible, some manufacturers offer a chime accessory device. Our trained Installation Guy technicians can install doorbell chimes and prepare your home for installation even if you don’t have an existing or working doorbell.

ANSWER: Great question. Most of today’s video doorbells are weather resistant. For example, some of the entry-level doorbell options from retailers such as Ring and Amazon claims they are weather resistant and designed to operate in temperatures ranging from -5F to 120F. As for theft, this can depend a little on how the doorbell is installed. They all come with mounting screws and brackets to secure them to the wall or door frame, but if a thief was determined enough, they could feasibly break the device away from its mounting. This would take a lot of effort – and remember, they are trying to steal a security camera, on your front door, and with a clear view of their face. The device would alert you to motion long before they manage to remove it. Some doorbell makers offer free device replacement with subscription in such cases.

ANSWER: This question isn’t as daft as it might sound. As we mentioned earlier, some smart doorbells don’t work with your existing chime. So, unless you buy a new wireless chime then pressing the button will not make a noise in your home. Instead, you’ll need to get used to your smartphone alerting you to visitors. You can also set the doorbell to alert you to motion, such as when someone is loitering nearby, and even automatically record a few seconds of the footage when motion is spotted. These systems often need fine-tuning, as passing vehicles or a neighbor’s cat can cause a false alarm until you have calibrated the camera’s sensitivity and field of view correctly. We recommend setting up the doorbell so that it alerts your phone when someone presses the button but also rings a chime so that you’ll be notified even if your phone is on silent, switched off, or in another room.

ANSWER: The cost of video doorbells can vary based on several factors, and the price difference between models often reflects variations in features, build quality, and brand reputation.

ANSWER: Many video doorbells are designed to be compatible with smart home ecosystems, allowing integration with various devices and platforms. The level of compatibility can vary depending on the brand and model of the video doorbell. Before purchasing a video doorbell, it’s essential to check its compatibility with the specific smart home ecosystem you use. Manufacturers usually provide information about supported platforms and devices on their websites. Additionally, firmware updates and new integrations may become available over time, so it’s a good idea to research and choose a video doorbell that aligns with your current and future smart home needs.
