November 5th, 2020



Doorbell cameras are becoming very popular among Austin homeowners and for good reason. Doorbell cameras are affordable, help protect your family, and monitor the comings and goings at your home. If you are thinking about installing a doorbell camera, here are all the ways that you can use your new security device.

 

What Is A Doorbell Camera?

 

A doorbell camera is a security camera that is installed on your front door. It records everything that happens on your porch and into the street of your Austin neighborhood. Doorbell cameras come with a range of features like sensors that can notify you when someone is at your door. They also often have a two-way microphone, so you can have a conversation. Some doorbell cameras integrate into your smartphone where you can view the video and talk to your guests. The best part about doorbell cameras is that both the equipment and the service is really affordable. They are an excellent option for anyone’s home security needs.

 

Five Uses For Your Doorbell Camera

There are so many ways to use your doorbell camera, here are just some:

Stop Porch Pirates

Porch pirates, otherwise known as package thieves, steal delivered packages right off people’s porches. Over the last few years, there has been a significant rise in porch pirates. A doorbell camera helps deter porch pirates from stealing your packages. Also in cases they do, you’ll capture their identity to provide to law enforcement.

Deter Break-Ins

Like all surveillance cameras, a doorbell camera is a great deterrent to break ins. When thieves see the camera, they know that their risk of being caught just skyrocketed. So in many cases, once they see the doorbell camera, they’ll skip your home.

Monitor Your Neighborhood

Depending on your porch and where you install the doorbell camera, you can often monitor your street. This is great if your neighbor’s are away, if you’re experiencing crime in your area, or even if you just want to watch your kids play in the front yard. With a doorbell camera you can help monitor your Austin neighborhood.

Note When Your Kids Are Home

Doorbell cameras also capture when people enter your home. This is great if you have kids that walk home from school by themselves. It will let you know when they’ve gotten home and that they are safe.

Avoid Pushy Salespeople

When solicitors come to our doors, it’s often hard to say no. With a doorbell camera, you can see who’s at the door and if you’d like, choose to not answer. You can also use the two-way microphone to have a conversation with them, without having to open the door and risk a break in.

Doorbell cameras are a great way to protect your home. They offer a variety of uses and are extremely affordable. To learn more about doorbell cameras and the other ways you can use them, contact your local security professional.
