Smart doorbells are prefect to replace your existing doorbell or add a new one. Smart doorbells allow you to be notified when someone is at the door and can send you a notification on your phone or smart device. They come with built in speakers so you can use them as an intercom and let people in using your smart lock. They also work with existing doorbell circuits so if you already have a chime installed these doorbells will work with it. They can also be paired with smart home cameras and can be triggered to automatically start recording when their button is pressed, along with the built-in camera that they have. All the doorbells that we use can be set up either wirelessly (battery powered) or wired which allows you to have continuous recording and make the doorbell work with your existing chime.
When someone presses the doorbell you can receive a notification on your phone that allows you to answer the doorbell from anywhere in the world. Either by using the built in camera or a paired one you can see who it is and either let them in or, for example a delivery person is at the door, instruct them where to leave the package. You can also set it to recognise faces and know when people arrive or leave.
Compatible with existing chime
Have an existing doorbell with a chime? No worries! It makes it even better if you have existing wiring for your doorbell as it allows you to set your smart doorbell up with your existing chime and give it continuous power. This gives you the ability to record 24/7 and never worry about losing battery.
