What is a video doorbell?
Different types of video doorbells have different features (which we will go into shortly) offering you a variety of ways to protect your home. Generally speaking, your video doorbell will let you remotely view your porch no matter where you are using its always vigilant camera; the ability to have a virtual peephole on your front door is the hallmark of this device. But there are additional features that, depending on the type of bell you choose, can enhance and improve its functionality.
The first type of video doorbell acts much like one would expect with a camera to view your front porch as well as a combination microphone and speaker so that you can talk to whoever is at your door. The second type, a “smarter” type of doorbell, if you will, offers a compelling benefit: the ability to connect to the locks in your door so you can let individual visitors in by giving them a virtual key through their smartphone.
