Gone are the days when you had no idea who had visited your home in your absence. With SkyBell, you will now be able to see, hear and even speak to the visitor who is at our door. It is a smart video doorbell, which can show who is at your door irrespective of the place you are in, whether you are at home, at work or even on the go. All you need is a smartphone and this smart device installed at your door. So, how does this device work? Let us check out this post to know more.
How Skybell Works
When a visitor to your home presses the Skybell button, you will receive an alert that somebody is at your door. To receive the alert you have to sync your smartphone with the smart device. Anybody in your home, apart from you, can also receive the alert if their mobile devices are also approved. If you accept the alert, the video camera installed in SkyBell will send a live video feed to your mobile device. This will enable you to see the person at your door and also hear and speak with him/her. [Tweet “SkyBell gives you the comfort of knowing your home is under your watch, even when you’re not there.”]
