Accessory that can be considered essential at the entrance of most homes, the doorbell must also evolve with the times. Today, with the help of the pandemic, you may be one of the people who order more on the Internet, and prefer that the delivery person simply leave the package on your doorstep, in the name of barrier gestures. Likewise, teleworking may be part of your daily life, and having to walk through your home to see who is in front of your door can be complicated during a video conference or an intense work session. This is why having a simple exterior button activating a chime or ringtone inside your home is a concept that may prove to be limited in the face of your current needs.
The advantages of WireFree Video Doorbell
The Arlo Essential WireFree Video Doorbell addresses these different issues, and more. Wireless evolution of the brand’s Video Doorbell, this new doorbell, very easy to install yourself thanks to its wireless operation with built-in battery, offers a viewing angle of 1: 1, as well as a field of vision 180 degrees, so you can see at one glance who is standing in front of your door, from head to toe. When someone rings, the video doorbell transfers the call directly to your smartphone, so you can answer it wherever you are, at home or elsewhere.
You can also monitor the video stream at any time, and thus check, for example, if the package left by the delivery man a few hours before is still at your door. Plus, just like Arlo surveillance cameras do, WireFree Video Doorbell detects suspicious movements outside your door, and lets you know on your smartphone. You can immediately access the 1080p HD video stream to learn about the situation, and, if necessary, communicate by voice with those present, who can respond to you. Even if you’re away from home, you stay in touch – even at night with the device’s built-in night vision. Enough to scare off any intruders, and prevent burglaries.
