Skybell wants to replace your doorbell

by Caitlyn

Skybell
We all want our lives to be as easy and streamlined as possible. Our phones sync up with our computer, which can connect with automatic aspects of our homes. It’s all very easy, so long as everything is working as it should. If you like the idea of having a interconnected home, then you most likely want to control it all through your smartphone.

If you hate going to the door only to make your presence known to the other person behind it that you may not actually want to talk to, having a video intercom system in place can help a lot. Seeing that this is commonly found at places like an apartment complex, you’ll have to find your own system should you own or rent separate property. Something like the Skybell might work, if it does all the things it says it will. This is a doorbell enabled with WiFi which will allow you to talk to and see anyone who approaches your door.

It has a motion sensor so that you can be informed if anyone gets too close to your front door, night vision, and will work with any iOS or Android devices. If you’re traveling, and just want to see what the weather is like back home, you can look at the video feed regardless of whether someone presses the button or not. If you don’t want to be the only one in charge of the door, you can grant access to others as well. This will cost you around $200, and will take some time to install and set up.
