Smart Doorbell Lets You Answer Your Door Anywhere

Wednesday, March 16th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Hardware & Peripherals, Smartphones

Doorbells have come a long way in this day and age of the smart home. I tend to still think of them as actual bells wired to a button where the little hammer clangs against the bell when someone presses the button. Or maybe more deluxe models where you get a nice chime. But that’s all changed. Check out the latest smart door bell, the SkyBell.


The SkyBell Video Doorbell does a lot more than tell you when someone is at the door. It lets you see them and talk to them. No wiring required! You don’t even have to be home.


It’s looks like a fairly standard door bell sitting there on your front porch. There’s a button to push and everything. But this doorbell is connected to WiFi.


SkyBell contacts you via an app on your smartphone if someone rings the bell. Not only do you know that someone is at the door, you can see them in a full color HD image and also hear them. The communication goes two ways, since you can also speak to the person.


There’s a motion sensor option that will turn on if someone comes to the door. The SkyBell has color night vision, so you’ll be able to see who’s there day or night. There’s also the option to record what you see on your porch.

Plus more than one person can access that feed. Multiple users are able to receive alerts that someone is at the door.

The company promises that the device is weather resistant and will work at temperatures ranging from -40 to 150 degrees.  SkyBell retails for $199.  It’s designed and manufactured in the U.S. Right now it’s only available in the U.S.
