A video doorbell camera is similar in size and appearance to the traditional doorbell, however it contains a built-in camera, mic and speaker and has Wi-Fi capabilities. This allows the user to conduct video calls with anyone at their front door. There is also usually a motion sensor built in to alert the user to someone’s presence.
Many different brands exist, each with their own benefits and drawbacks. Some doorbell cameras require monthly subscription fees to get the most out of the product.
There are even completely battery operated versions – although they make for easy installation, they are not always the most dependable.
