What is a Video Doorbell?

How does a video doorbell provide protection, convenience and peace of mind? See how a video doorbell works and what to consider when installing one for your home.

You’re home alone, cooking three dishes on the stove. Your kids are calling for you in the next room. Then the doorbell rings. And you wish you had an assistant to screen who’s there and answer the door for you.

That’s just one scenario where a SkyBell Video Doorbell saves the day.

With video-doorbell technology, you can both monitor who’s at your door and converse with the person through your iPhone, iPad or Android device. The SkyBell Video Doorbell adds a layer of security that’s at work when visitors arrive, packages are delivered, or potential burglars approach. It’s the assistant you can count on to give you all the information you need to know, when you need to know it—even when you’re not at home.

So, how does it work?

Let’s look at how the SkyBell Video Doorbell makes your life easier—and safer—with its superior design features.

Know someone’s at the door, even if they don’t ring the bell.

SkyBell’s motion sensor will detect movement at your front door, even if the person doesn’t push the bell. You’ll receive an alert on your phone as soon as a visitor is detected, and you’ll have access to video showing who’s there. If it’s a delivery person leaving a package, you’ll see it happen in real time. If it’s a potential burglar, you can immediately download the video and send it to the police, whether you’re home or not. It’s the best way to stay one step ahead.

Answer the door without opening it.

The SkyBell mobile app allows you to have a two-way conversation with the person at your door so you can screen them for safety purposes or simply ask who’s there if you’re too busy to get to the door. Even if you’re away from home, the system will alert your phone when the doorbell rings, and you’ll be able to access the video feed and the two-way audio.

See clearly who’s at the door—even at night.

Yes, you’ll finally have that night vision superpower you’ve always wanted. This is where old-fashioned peepholes fall far behind. SkyBell’s full colour night vision feature shows you in high definition who’s at the door, complete with a 180° view. The system is even designed to function in extreme climates, working through temps of -40°F to 140°F. There’s no time, day, or season where you won’t have full monitoring access.

Customize 24/7 monitoring to your specifications.

The SkyBell system allows you to receive alerts by push notifications, email, text, or video, according to your preference. Specify which alerts you want to receive—motion detection or doorbell—and the time of day or night that you want to receive them. Video monitoring is always engaged, so you can access it on your iPhone or iPad whenever you feel the need—whether from your own comfy bed or that out-of-town conference room.
