Most people who enter your home will ring your doorbell first. Until recently, the doorbell was a simple bit of technology, but wireless devices have revolutionized the way you can be alerted to visitors. New data suggests that 2019 could be a big year for smart doorbells as Americans increase their home automation technology.
With the benefits of intercom, photos, and video, you can respond to a visitor from anywhere without the visitor knowing where you are, even if you are not home. Depending on your device, you can be alerted through your phone and interact with your visitor remotely, even unlocking your door for them.
Add an extra layer of security by choosing a model that has a motion-sensing camera. This allows you to receive notifications anytime someone walks onto your porch or yard.
Wireless, battery-operated doorbells can be installed by anyone since there are no wires to run. All you need is the doorbell equipment, a screwdriver, and a few screws.
