Monitoring your front entry is an important part of protecting your home. With visitors dropping by, kids racing inside and out, and packages arriving, it’s hard to keep track of all the activity.
Thanks to their ability to show you who’s at the door, no matter where you are, doorbell cameras have become a popluar addition to any home security system. Because these doorbell cameras are fully integrated into your security system and powered by Alarm.com, your doorbell camera offers many ways to make everyday life easier.
Answer the door from anywhere
An Alarm.com-powered doorbell camera gives you a safe, smart way to see who’s at the door no matter where you are.
When a visitor rings the doorbell, you get a smartphone alert. Open your app and you’ll see a video feed of who’s there, with a microphone icon that you can press to start a conversation through the doorbell. Given that burglars often ring a home’s doorbell first, this makes your video doorbell a great crime deterrent.
Protect packages from thieves
If you have a smart lock, you can go a step further and unlock your door remotely. This is great for protecting valuable deliveries that would otherwise be left on your porch.
With the ‘unlock’ icon underneath the doorbell’s video feed in your app, tap once to unlock your door and ask them to leave the package inside. When they’re done, use your app to lock your door and watch them leave.
See and share suspicious activity
The video doorbell is also a full smart home security camera, ready to capture and send you footage of suspicious activity in your front yard and porch area.
A visitor to your porch will trigger a motion-activated video recording, even if they don’t press the doorbell. You can have these clips delivered to your phone immedidately, where they’re easy to download and forward to a family member, neighbors or local police department.
Keep up with your kids
It’s easy to create a custom alert, triggered by your kids’ user codes, that sends you a video clip of them arriving home. It’s a great way to make sure they’re home safe and who’s with them.
Oh, and it's also a doorbell.
