A video doorbell can make you feel safe when you’re away from home. Keep an eye on when the kids get home, when packages are delivered or whether any of your neighbors are porch pirates.
But not all video doorbells are made equal. Some are better at night vision, while others provide higher-quality daytime recordings. Tap or click for secret uses for your home security system.
We found five fantastic video doorbell options for the best recording features, simple installation, audio options and more.
Promising review: "Easy set up. Picture quality is good. The motion is sensitive but I’d rather it over sensitive than not picking stuff up. Mic is good both in and out. Great product. Easy to pair with internet and app."
Promising review: "Even though my existing doorbell location is not in an ideal location, the cost of the device and the relative ease of installation made this purchase an easy decision. I am very happy with the results. We have lost the [original] doorbell chime but an announcement is made on our Alexa devices..."
Promising review: "I installed the device yesterday. It works GREAT and it is simple to set up. Soon we'll look into getting more devices for better home security.
Promising review: "This video doorbell was super easy to install and very easy to use. We love the way it ties to Alexa and we can view it from our Echo Show and Fire TV 4K cube on our main TV. The viewing angle is also fantastic, it covers our entire front porch and most of our front yard. Great device, completely recommend."
Promising review: "Easy to install. I’ve been happy with pretty much all Wyze has to offer. The big plus for me is having everything in one app. Doorbell, cameras thermostat, smart plugs, etc. Also, the number one thing for me is price and Wyze makes a good product that is affordable."
