The Internet Now Has a Doorbell
The DoorBot can take the place of your existing doorbell and use the existing doorbell wiring to slowly trickle charge the internal battery. (Although, at 1.30" x 2.39" x 5.68”, the DoorBot is most likely going to be larger than your current doorbell’s button.) If you don’t have a wired doorbell, or would like the DoorBot in a different location from your current doorbell, the company says that DoorBot can operate wirelessly on the internal battery for over a year before needing to be recharged.
The DoorBot is weather-resistant, and I can tell you from the demonstration I saw at DoorBot’s booth that the installation is super easy. The angle of the internal camera is adjustable, allowing for different mounting heights.
The DoorBot can be pre-ordered now for $199 with shipments to begin before the end of the year.
