Video doorbells have become so popular that it’s not uncommon for visitors to smile as they come up to the door. They want to make a good impression on the video!
These doorbells are definitely convenient. Depending on the model you purchase, you can see who’s there and even speak to that person before opening your door. Some systems even allow for recording.
If you haven’t purchased a video doorbell yet, there are some important things to consider when shopping for one.
First, make sure the resolution is at least 1080p. If it’s less than that, the image quality will be blurry — especially at night.
Video doorbells come in wired or battery versions. Battery versions are easy to install, but you’ll need to keep the battery charged. Wired versions are more secure and reliable. However, the installation is more complex.
It’s recommended that you choose a video doorbell with cloud storage options (including date stamping.) That way, anything that’s recorded will be stored, and you’ll be able to recover it if needed.
Finally, make sure the doorbell works with your mobile phone. That way, you can receive alerts when someone approaches your front door.
