Do any of these scenarios sound familiar?

  • Your toddler finally falls asleep and not two minutes later, the delivery man rings the doorbell.
  • You’re still in your pj’s when an unannounced guest knocks at the door.
  • Your husband is out of town when a persistent salesman tries to get your attention through the glass on your front door.

Well, there is finally a solution. SkyBell is upgrading the doorbell with a WI-FI video doorbell!

I was given the opportunity to try it out recently and my kids and I have been having fun with it. Of course it’s come in handy a few times too. Here are a few of the features I think are the most helpful:

  • Turn on Silent Mode to remotely turn off the indoor chime and receive notifications only on your mobile device…that way the doorbell won’t wake the kids up from their nap.
  • Use the One-Way Video to see who is at the door without them being able to see you…you know, in case you still have your pj’s on.
  • Use the Two-Way Audio to talk with whomever is at your door using your mobile devise…that way don’t have to answer the door for that random salesman.
  • Take a Photo Snapshot of the person at your door…just in case…
  • Turn on the SkyBell integrated camera at anytime to view your entry way…great feature if you’re out of town or on vacation.

And of course there are a few other features like:

  • Night vision
  • Alerts for multiple users
  • Weather resistant
  • Remote control features

It’s pretty great technology and definitely helps simplify life while adding a level of security. skybell

Here’s how the SkyBell doorbell works:

  1. Install the doorbell (instructions included).
  2. Connect it to your WiFi.
  3. Download the SkyBell App from the app store.
  4. Start using it!
