Have you heard of the SkyBell Video Doorbell? It is an amazing invention that allows you to not only see visitors at your door, but talk to them too! The video doorbell is connected to an app on your iPhone, Android, or tablet and you receive a popup call from the SkyBell app every time someone rings your door bell. You can be inside your home or thousands of miles away! I seriously love this thing!
Today, you have the chance to win your own SkyBell Video Doorbell for your own home (retails for $199) but first I’m going to show you how easy it is to install it.
I was so excited to install the SkyBell at our home, but unfortunately we don’t have a wired doorbell (which is a requirement), so we installed it at our friends’ house instead. Our loss, their gain!
We simply removed the existing doorbell and then screwed on the plate attachment that came with the SkyBell. There are a few plate options in case you want to angle your camera.
I am really impressed with the app! It has a lot of different features that I just love. As a mom who still has a baby that naps, I love that you can disable the door chime inside your home! Instead of having to place a sign on your door, you can just click the button from your app, you won’t hear a sound inside and you will still get a notification on your phone when someone comes to the door.
The motion sensor is also a great feature. The only issue I have is that it takes a solid 10 seconds of movement before the app will alert you that someone is at the door. I wish it was instant. However, if you are ever suspicious that someone is there, you can always manually turn on the camera and check in on your porch.
This is a screen shot of what will pop up on your phone when someone rings the doorbell. You can choose to answer it and talk to your visitor or just end the call and answer the door. The camera has a fairly large radius, but the full range will obviously be dependent on where your doorbell is located. Our friends’ was in the corner of their door, so you lose a little visibility with the wall.
The SkyBell is not only a fun gadget to make life easier but it is also perfect for added security when you are away.
