Doorbells: The transition from “ding dong” to home security.
We can all agree that the doorbell had a significant glow up from its humble beginnings. At one time, it simply provided a “ding dong” that alerted you when someone was at the door. Today we have state-of-the-art video doorbell solutions that provide an additional layer of home security. When using a doorbell camera, you will find that they
– provide a more expansive view of what is happening in and around the home
– have motion sensors, so you know when someone approaches the house
– provide additional insights about who is at the door and what is happening when they are
– allow you to talk with someone at your door, even when they don’t have their phone on them
– allow you to see who is ringing your doorbell from anywhere in the world
– can record and store live footage for review at a later time
The rise of the digital doorbell has been rapid since its invention in 2012. This trend shows no signs of slowing down; in fact, some homebuilders are outfitting their homes with this latest technology instead of traditional doorbells. In addition, many individuals decide to transition to video doorbells because they desire to be more connected and aware of their surroundings and lest we forget the dreaded porch pirate (individuals that steal packages from front porches).
If you are considering the transition to a video doorbell, the next big question is – do it yourself or hire a professional? As you weigh the pros and cons, you will want to consider if you have the right tools, technical aptitude, and experience. Some think going the do-it-yourself route is cheaper, but that is not necessarily true. Most local companies work hard to keep their prices competitive while providing a team of trained professionals to save you time and headaches. You may even find yourself saving money if you’re more of the “honey DON’T” type. Not to mention we are a local company that has been in the community since 1908. We strive every day to provide superior customer service to you, our neighbors, and our technicians are highly-trained experts that have installed hundreds of video doorbells.
