Some people put security cameras and alarms all over the house, only to open the door to anyone who knows how to knock. Don’t you want to know who’s lurking behind that door? Vivint Security is making that sort of information really easy to access, with the new Vivint Doorbell Camera.
The Vivint Doorbell Camera is a new WiFi-enabled product that ties into the company’s smart home system. So, you’re going to need that; this is not a stand-alone solution.
Once installed, you can use the Vivint Doorbell Camera to have a two-way conversation with whoever is at the front door, all without opening that door. In fact, you don’t even have to be at home! That’s because you can access the Vivint Doorbell Camera from any smartphone or tablet anywhere in the world.
As soon as the doorbell detects a visitor, it will start recording audio and video. That content will get streamed to your Vivint SkyControl panel, as well as designated mobile devices. The system will even save 30-second clips for later viewing.
Of course, you can use the Vivint Doorbell Camera to view that area anytime you want a little peek. Vivint Security also says that you can use the 7-inch screen on the Vivint SkyControl panel as a “digital peephole.”
The Vivint Doorbell Camera also allows you to remotely unlock the door, open the garage door, disarm the security system, and more. Other features include video analytics to alert homeowners to approaching visitors, customized notifications, night vision, and a 180-degree lens.
“We’re constantly working to give our customers the best in smart home technology by adding greater intelligence and convenience to their busy lives,” said Jeremy Warren, CTO of Vivint. “With the Vivint Doorbell Camera, we combined brilliant technology and elegant design to provide a doorstep experience like no other in the marketplace.”
Vivint Security is making the Vivint Doorbell Camera available with a black and silver design. It’s available now as part of every professionally installed Vivint smart home package. Contact Vivint Security for pricing and additional information.
