Give multiple users access to the camera. Each user can record video and record snapshots on their device, or simply access events from the cloud.
HOW DOES A SMART VIDEO DOORBELL CAMERA WORK?
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.
Before getting your doorbell camera, make sure to check that the WiFi is strong enough to support it. Each manufacturer has their own guidelines for this. Our technicians are able to assist you in determining whether or not your WiFi signal is sufficient. If it is too weak there are WiFi boosters available.
With the free included app, users can check in on their camera from anywhere in the world. Events are recorded to the cloud so that any important events can be accessed by the user. The cloud storage features are not the same among all brands – be sure to check before purchasing to know what type of storage your model supports.
WHAT IS CLOUD STORAGE
Cloud storage is a model of computer data storage in which the digital data is stored in logical pools. The physical storage spans multiple servers (sometimes in multiple locations), and the physical environment is typically owned and managed by a hosting company. These cloud storage providers are responsible for keeping the data available and accessible, and the physical environment protected and running. People and organizations buy or lease storage capacity from the providers to store user, organization, or application data.Cloud storage services may be accessed through a colocated cloud computing service, a web service application programming interface (API) or by applications that utilize the API, such as cloud desktop storage, a cloud storage gateway or Web-based content management systems.
INTEGRATION WITH YOUR EXISTING SMART HOME
To truly take advantage of this device, you can integrate your video doorbell camera with your existing security system or smart home.
Each doorbell camera is different, so make sure to check with our staff on what platforms are supported by your doorbell camera.
Integrating the doorbell with the home has many benefits, such as programming “scenes” or “automations.”
For example, when motion is detected, turn on outside smart light.
