Thinking about a video doorbell for your home? That makes sense, as it’s been one of the most popular electronic devices for the home over the past decade. Truth be told, it’s three products in one: a doorbell, a video camera, and a two-way communications device. And, here’s a little-known secret about video doorbells: They get even better when installed in smart home security system. Here are some things you can do with them.
Answer the door from anywhere.
When a visitor rings your video doorbell, it chimes like an ordinary doorbell; however, you also get an alert on the smartphone app you use to control your home security. If you tap on the alert, you’ll be able to see a live video stream of the doorway. The person won’t be able to see you, of course – but you’ll be able to see them, and you can even have a conversation through the tiny speaker and microphone at the doorbell. And you can do this from anywhere: at work, on vacation…and of course, even when you’re seated comfortably inside the home.

Keep delivery packages secure.
Ever experienced the worry of having a package sitting unattended on your porch for hours when no one is home? With a video doorbell in your smart home security system, you won’t have to worry anymore.
When the delivery person rings the doorbell, you’ll be able to ask them to leave the package inside. How do you let them in? By unlocking your front door from your phone. This is what integrating the video doorbell with your home security system offers. The delivery will be placed inside, the driver will step back out, and you can tap on the same button on your phone to lock the house up again.
Catch suspicious visitors in the act.
If the video doorbell is integrated with your security system, it instantly becomes a fully functional home security camera. That means it will capture motion-triggered clips, send you a smartphone alert, and store your clips in the cloud so you can go back and watch them later.
A video doorbell device is a small but mighty home security tool. To discuss video doorbells that integrate with other devices for home security, New Jersey homeowners can contact GuardMe Security.
