If your doorway is seeing more visitors these days, that can be a sign that life is slowly getting back to normal. However, that also means it’s time to be aware of the home security gaps that can appear when people are at your front door often.
To narrow those gaps, you need technology that can watch over your doorway 24/7 and put your mind at ease. We have that technology here: the doorbell camera, that simple but important innovation that can give your doorway the extra monitoring it needs. Here are some things you can do with your doorbell camera.
Answer the door from wherever you are.
Did you know that burglars often ring a home’s doorbell before deciding whether to proceed with a crime? That’s what makes your video doorbell a great tool for crime deterrence. Whether you’re at work, at a friend’s house or on vacation, your doorbell camera will show you who is there and what they’re doing. If you need to communicate with them, you can; the two-way voice technology makes it easy. If you don’t want them to know you aren’t home, you don’t have to tell them.
Protect your valuable deliveries.
By connecting to your other smart home security devices, your doorbell camera can help you get your packages inside and keep them safe from porch pirates. Here’s an example: If you have opted to have smart locks installed, you’ll be able to unlock the door with your phone and ask a delivery person to leave your package inside.
Because of the video technology, you’ll be able to verify who they are and watch them in action – and as they walk away, you’ll be able to lock the doors again using your phone. This is the kind of home security you need for today’s challenges.
Use it as a home security camera.
Your video doorbell camera is a functioning doorbell with an audible chime, just like a traditional doorbell. But unlike a traditional doorbell, it’s also a full smart home security camera that can capture and send you footage of suspicious activity. You’ll be able to use those video clips as evidence you can share with neighbors, social media contacts or law enforcement. That way, others can see what the suspicious characters at your door looked like.
A doorbell camera is a powerful tool for home security. If you don’t have one yet, call Post Alarm Systems to learn more. We’ll be glad to speak with you.
