The video doorbell has taken the security industry by storm, quickly becoming one of America’s favorite security products. Security Analytics forecasts that security consumers around the world will spend close to $8 million on smart home cameras. This prediction includes video doorbells. So, what exactly can this doorbell do to enhance your home security?
1. Keep Packages Safe Until You Can Get Home
You’ve likely experienced the anxiety of knowing an expensive Christmas or birthday present is coming in the mail, and you won’t be home to get it. No worries! The video doorbell saves the day. When the delivery person rings your video doorbell, simply tell them to put the package inside the front door.
All you have to do is use your smartphone to unlock the smart lock on your front door. Then re-lock it once the delivery driver steps back onto the front porch. Now, if anyone scopes out your front porch for packages to steal, they won’t find any.
2. Keep Track of the Kids When You’re Not Home
Working parents worry about the kids when they’re home alone after school. Did they make it home safe? Is there someone else with them in your home? The video doorbell helps reassure you that the kids are okay.
Program the camera to send you a video alert daily when the children get home from school. You’ll know they made it safely and be able to see if anyone else is with them. You’ll also see if they brought any unapproved guests’ home. Your parents never had the type of relief that comes from knowing your kids made it home safe.
Kids also like using the video doorbell like Face Time. They’ll ring it just to say hello and that they love you.
3. Answer the Door When No One is Home
No matter where you are, you can answer the door to make it look like someone is always home. When someone presses the button on your video doorbell, it chimes just like a traditional doorbell.
Simply tap the alert you receive on your smartphone, and you’re connected with your visitor through a live video feed. They can’t see you, but you can see them. As long as you have access to the security app on your phone, you can answer the door no matter where you are, whether that’s work, on vacation, or at the grocery store.
