Video doorbells can be a useful component of both home and business video surveillance and access control in Calgary. They function just like regular doorbells while also providing video of whoever is at your door. At Triton Security, we are often asked whether video doorbells are a good choice for our clients' homes and businesses. As proud providers of security systems in Calgary, we decided to put together a handy video doorbell guide.
A video doorbell activates either when it is pressed or when its built-in motion sensors detect movement. Because it is connected to the internet, the doorbell can notify the home or business owner of the guest at their door via their smartphone. The property owner can then use an app to view and speak to the guest.
The first major player in the video doorbell market was the Ring, which remains among the most popular brands. However, there are many other video doorbells available on the market today, including Nest Hello, August, SkyBell, VueBell, Blink, Amazon Key, and WiseNet.
The main benefit of a video doorbell is that you can see exactly who is at your door without opening it just by looking at your phone. It provides a much clearer image than looking through a peephole and doesn't require you to approach the door. Video doorbells with motion sensors can let you know if someone is snooping around your property even if they don't ring the doorbell, helping to prevent crime. Simply having a video doorbell visible near your door can act as a deterrent.
There are a few different installation options for video doorbells. Some are powered by battery and simply need to be mounted on the wall. Others can be wired to your doorbell wiring. A hardwired doorbell will provide uninterrupted service, while a battery-powered doorbell provides more flexibility in terms of placement.
Most video doorbells retail for around $200. If you feel that you will get a lot of use out of it and that it is something which can enhance your home or business security, then you will likely be very happy with the purchase.
While video doorbells can be an effective security tool, they are not intended to replace home and business security systems in Calgary. You should also consider installing well-positioned CCTV cameras for a better view of everything going on around your property and access control to restrict who has access to your property.
Video doorbells and other types of new IoT technology typically cover just a small aspect of home or business security. You can trust Triton Security to provide you with the right access control system and video surveillance system in Calgary to take care of the rest.
