Need to see what’s lurking behind your front door? For a while now, Skybell has been providing that peek from almost anywhere, via a smartphone or tablet. However, now they want to do it a little bit better.

The company just launched SkyBell Version 2.0, a new version of the WiFi video doorbell that lets you answer the front door from almost any mobile device. This latest version promises better WiFi performance thanks to a new chip. That same chip can deliver digital door chime capability and enhanced memory for faster performance.

Other enhancements include a new wide-angle camera, an enhanced motion sensor, and customization of contrast and backlighting options for a higher visual quality.

The company is also planning to add a timer soon, so users can schedule when to have the motion sensor active. At some point, server recording and activity history will also be available, although no timeline has been announced yet.

“We’re very passionate about creating useful technology that improves everyday life and empowers people with a new level of convenience and control,” said Andrew Thomas, co-founder of SkyBell. “We’re proud to roll out SkyBell Version 2.0, to give consumers new advanced, essential features that will elevate the quality of their Skybell experience while giving users a new feeling of safety with answering the door.”

SkyBell Version 2.0 is selling now in brushed aluminum and oil rubbed bronze finishes. There are no monthly fees, but the actual doorbell has an MSRP of $199.
