Here are just a few of the ways our Skybell Wifi Doorbells combined with the Alarm.com App save us a ton of time and provide us with peace of mind:
- Ask the UPS delivery man to leave the package instead of having to go pick up after work
- See your kids come home to confirm they have arrived safely
- Tell the persistent Solicitors you’re not interested without going to the door
MANAGE YOUR FRONT DOOR FROM YOUR DESK
Safeguard 1: Answer the door without opening it
An Alarm.com-powered doorbell camera is a safer and smarter way to find out who’s at the door.
When a visitor rings the bell, you can see them in HD video to visually verify them, and have a voice conversation with them via your smartphone. There’s no need to open the door, which makes it easier to politely but firmly end the conversation if a visitor seems suspicious.
In fact, you don’t even need to reveal whether you’re home or not. You can use your doorbell camera when you’re home, at work, or anywhere else—making your home appear occupied even when it isn’t.
Safeguard 2: The smart home security deterrent
Even before you answer your doorbell camera, there’s a strong chance of your Alarm.com-powered security system stopping a burglar in his tracks.
Most burglars check for security systems when they’re looking for homes to target, and 60 percent of them will completely avoid a home that has one (source).
A connected security camera—either a doorbell camera or an outdoor camera—is a visible sign that your home is protected, while a yard sign from your Alarm.com service provider indicates that your system is professionally monitored.
Safeguard 3: Fast video awareness with easy sharing
Your Alarm.com-powered security cameras are a particularly effective deterrent because they help law enforcement track burglars down.
Unlike old video monitoring technology, Alarm.com can alert you immediately when your cameras catch a motion-triggered clip of a visitor. It’s easy to download the clip to your smartphone, and you can forward the footage as easily as sending a photo.
If you think you’ve captured a dishonest visitor on video, your local police department will be pleased to receive the footage. Burglars often return to the same neighborhood over and over, and a video clip can be the breakthrough that police need to identify and catch them.
