Why Smart Doorbells Beat Traditional Alarm Systems Every Time
Twenty years ago, home alarm systems were the vogue and anyone who could afford it, protected their home with one. The thing about conventional security systems like these is that they are expensive, messy and intrusive to install and require a good deal of maintenance to remain effective.
However, it’s no longer the 1990s and Internet of Things technology has landed in a big way, meaning that there are cheaper home security options available that are much simpler to install and maintain. Here we look in closer detail at what smart doorbells offer and why they’re a great choice for protecting your home and your family.
Cheap to Buy and Use
With good quality smart doorbells available for under $200 with and no monthly charge involved (unless you opt for managed services), purchasing one is not going to leave a big hole in your bank account. Once installed, there’s no cost attached to the upkeep of your new doorbell, aside from your electricity and broadband bills, which means that this tech is accessible to all sizes of home security budget.
Easy to Install
Unlike traditional home alarm systems, smart doorbells are super easy to install, even by people who don’t consider themselves good at DIY. If you own a screwdriver, you have everything you need to install one and it can be achieved in minutes. Once it’s physically in place, all you need to do is connect it to your wireless network and you’re done!
2 Way Communication
The fundamental difference between an alarm system and a smart doorbell is that it allows for two way communication between the person at your door and you. This turns it from a reactive security solution to a proactive one that actively prevents burglars from even trying to break in. Smart doorbells often come with a myriad of features too, with 24/7 recording, motion detection and face recognition, meaning that intruders are put off trying before they’ve gotten near your home.
A home security system is no longer the preserve of the affluent, as IoT has made it accessible to anyone with a front door and an internet connection. Not only are smart doorbells an adequate security option, as in many ways, they offer a vastly superior level of protection that puts the homeowner firmly in control. For all the reason mentioned, it’s a choice that we’d recommend to anyone looking to protect their home, their family and their belongings..
