You may have heard of the latest home automation and security device, which is trending throughout the world. Wi-Fi enabled video doorbells like Ring and SkyBell are the newest pieces of technology which allow you to answer your front door with your smart phone from anywhere in the world.

What are they?

Video doorbells allow you to see, hear, and speak to the visitor at your door whether you’re at home, at work, or on the go. Smart doorbells are devices in which when visitors push the button, just like a normal doorbell, it alerts you and anyone else with an approved mobile device. These doorbells however have many cool features thanks to their ability to connect to a Wi-Fi network. Some of these features include  receiving alerts when someone is at the door, seeing who it is through video on your phone, and you can even communicate via two-way voice technology-no matter where you are in the world.

How Does it Work?

When a visitor presses the button, everyone who has an approved mobile device will simultaneously receive an alert that somebody is at the door. If you accept the alert, SkyBell’s video camera will send a live video feed to your smartphone so you can see, hear and speak to the person at your door.
