Traditional vs Smart Video Doorbells
Most people have never thought of the dangers that come with a traditional doorbell, because until recently there wasn’t an alternative. They do come with some serious weaknesses, however. For example, since the front door is one of the most used doors in the home, there is plenty of opportunity to forget to lock it. To know who is at the door, you must get close to the door and to possible danger. Sometimes, to address the need you must open the door to people with whom you are unfamiliar. All of these things place you in danger, and all can be solved using a smart doorbell.
Smart doorbells incorporate wi-fi, an HD camera, and two-way audio for a super boost. The features are all accessible from a smartphone, and when connected to other smart home devices and features, enhance safety and convenience. Here’s how.
