Seven Reasons Why You Need A Doorbell Camera
Contribute To Your Neighborhood Watch
When everyone is alert and on guard, your neighborhood reaps the rewards. With a smart doorbell camera, you can possibly catch suspicious characters that pop up in your recorded clips and share that information with your neighbors and local law enforcement when necessary. Staying alert helps you, your neighbors, and the police keep your neighborhood as safe as possible. Think of a doorbell camera as an extra eye that never sleeps and keeps you informed of what occurs in front of your home.
Screen Unwanted Visitors & Door Knockers
We have all been there when you’re watching hockey, football or getting ready to watch your favorite movie when an unsolicited salesperson comes to your door. In many cases this can make for an uncomfortable conversation when you answer your door due to frustration or anger. With an Alarm Guard Security App and a smart doorbell camera, you can communicate with them without even answering the door.
Thanks to the easy talk & listen audio feature, you can politely let those unsolicited knockers know that you’re busy or simply not interested and save them from returning if you were to not even acknowledge them in the first place.
Keep an Eye on Your Family
Doorbell cameras are great whether your home or away, this becomes extremely important in helping ensure your family is safe. If you’re a working parent, a doorbell camera that offers two-way conversation gives you the freedom to stay connected with your children in real-time with live video to confirm they’ve safely arrived home, all without leaving the office or running errands.
Allowing your kids to play outside is important to help shift some good play time away from video games or watching television. By having a doorbell camera when your kids are playing in the front or backyard, it helps to have an extra eye and help monitor their activity.
Neighbourly Theft or Annoyance
Have you every opened your door only to find your daily newspaper is not where it is supposed to be? Or noticed that pile of dog crap sitting on your lawn where your kids may play? Nothing is more annoying, and it’s hard to prove whose dog was the culprit or who may have stolen your newspaper. The doorbell camera detects motion and can give you a clear image of the dog and its owner, giving you a chance to speak to your neighbor about your yard concerns or missing newspaper.
Protect Your Car & Property
Most homeowners believe that a video doorbell only helps to prevent a burglary of your home, but it actually can perform much more duties for you. If your doorbell camera is placed and angled exactly where you want it, you can get a great view of your driveway or the street in front of your house. It’s amazing what happens when your sleeping or simply inside your home, why not have the opportunity to stream video at any time and possibly catch events through motion triggered recording.
Stop Porch Pirates
With the number of deliveries on the rise from such convenient companies like amazon, brings a new breed of theft right from your front door. Porch pirates also known as package thieves, have become a common problem with the rise of online shopping. A doorbell camera can help stop porch pirates in their tracks or at the very least offer support and recording footage to help catch the culprit.
Package thieves who notice a smart doorbell on a home may be deterred from attempting a theft in the first place, knowing that they’re liable to be caught in action by your camera.
Evidence For Captured Events
The worst thing in life is the unknown. When something goes missing, or vandalism or theft is recognized it is such a great advantage to have recorded footage to keep your sanity. Sometimes we tend to think we know what happened based on previous events in our life which may cause directing inaccurate accusations without the proof.
