Best Smart Doorbells for Your Home

As technology is evolving, our dream of having a safe and secure home will be achieved sooner. Smart doorbells and improved home security are helping us to ward off porch pirates and ding-dong ditchers. 

That is why having a smart or video doorbell is no longer a luxury, rather it is now a necessity. Therefore, in our bud to help our customers to find the smart doorbell that will suit their need, we are presenting the doorbells that have proven to be reliable over time. 

Ring Video Doorbell

When hooking up your Ring products, its better to use the free Ring app (available for Apple and Android devices) to alert you whenever someone approaches your door or comes in a range of a security camera. This allows you view the HD video stream of the person and speak to them using two-way audio communication. You can control all the other functions of your Ring devices such as floodlights and sirens and video recording using the free ring app.

Features 

  • Two-way communication
  • 720p resolution
  • Night vision
  • 180° field of view
  • Motion sensor

Arlo Video Doorbell

The Arlo Video Doorbell is on the top list because along with its great hardware and fast response times, this was the only tested model that could distinguish among people, animals, vehicles, or packages. This meant it also kept false alerts a problem with many models to a minimum. The Arlo also captures crisp video, with a 1536×1536 resolution and a wide, 180° viewing angle in a square format. This provides a comprehensive vertical and horizontal view of what’s going on in front of your door, whether it’s deliveries or visiting raccoons. 

Features

  • HD Video with HDR: Capture more vivid details
  • Motion Detection: Get instant phone alerts
  • Night Vision: See clearly without a light on
  • 180° Viewing Angle: Shows more at your door

Google Nest Hello

Nest Hello is embodied with the familiar convenience of a doorbell with the trusted security and intelligence of a Nest camera. It has 24/7 live streaming, HDR imaging, and the night vision to give you a clear view, day or night. And it can light up and send you an alert when someone approaches, even if they don't ring the bell. 

Eufy Video Doorbell 

We love the fact that it doesn’t need a monthly subscription to access video clips but, as a tradeoff it does require a hub which makes it slightly more expensive upfront and has a small delay when you want to watch a live stream. The Eufy Security Doorbell has two major components, the actual doorbell camera itself and the HomeBase comes inside the box. The HomeBase acts as a brain for the whole system. It securely stores all the footage – which means, if your camera is ever stolen, all of the videos are still safely stored inside.

Features

  • Wireless connectivity 
  • Long-life battery
  • High-resolution video 
  • Excellent motion detection
  • High-quality image, day and night 
  • Local storage 

August Doorbell Cam Pro: Most affordable subscription

August Doorbell Cam Pro has made it easier to answer your door from anywhere. The Doorbell Cam Pro will capture the moments leading up to a motion alert because continuous monitoring of your doorstep is involved. You can replay any videos from the last 24 hours because of its free basic subscription. August Doorbell Cam Pro makes it possible for you to let the right visitors in.
