Video doorbells are rapidly growing in popularity. Also known as smart doorbells, they allow homeowners to answer their doors virtually, through their phone or smart device. Many of these video doorbells have the ability to record, receive and play audio. They will let homeowners know when someone rings the doorbell and if someone is walking past your door.
As you can see, there are benefits – so should you invest in a video doorbell? They are not a high-cost home security device, but are they worth the money? Below we have list some of the reasons you may want to invest in a video doorbell.
One of the most common reasons people invest in a video doorbell is the security. You can see who is at the door, without having to open the door and put yourself at risk. The video doorbell will also deter potential criminals or intruders that want to go unnoticed. You can also record and monitor what is going on outside your home.
When you have ordered something online and feel like you have been waiting forever to arrive, it can be really annoying when you miss the delivery. A video doorbell allows you to never miss a delivery again. You will see the delivery driver at your door, and you ask him to place the parcel in a safe place through the intercom.
When you invest in a video doorbell, you are also able to retrieve footage of what’s going on around your home and street. This can be great for neighbourhood watch and looking out for others. Your video doorbell will help improve the security of your home, but also your neighbours and the homes around you.
Due to that fact that your video doorbell is a smart doorbell, it means that it can interact with the other smart devices that you and those in your household own. This means that you can trigger security lights to go on when someone comes past. You can also set up your smart devices to turn on when you’re not home. This will help your home look occupied, even if nobody is home.
