Smart doorbells bring a new wave of features that make us wonder how we ever survived without them. With Smart Doorbells, our busy lives don’t need to hinder us from answering the door while we are out. We can know exactly when the kids made it home from school and when packages arrive. By linking one of the many compatible smart locks to your smart doorbell, you can let in the babysitter or housekeeper right when they arrive. Video doorbells are a powerful crime deterrent by blocking how thieves check if you’re home: your doorbell.
Installation and compatibility
We frequently get requests to fix doorbell systems due to melted chimes, fried wires, and intermittent smart doorbells. Manufacturer websites recommend professional installation for a reason. Doorbell systems don’t have voltage standards and are often incompatible with smart doorbells’ lower voltage tolerances. A multimeter is used to test compatibility.
Typical home routers were not designed with smart doorbells in mind. Watching youtube in the bedroom may work fine but upstreaming HD video from outside the home poses challenges. A network decibel test can ensure a solid signal before opening the box.
