Ever wish you could keep an eye on your front door, even from a distance? Installing a doorbell camera in your home as part of your home security system can keep you up to date on what’s happening at home in real time, no matter where you are.

A digital doorbell can help you with everything from thwarting package thieves to ensuring that the kids get home safely after school. Home security cameras, particularly doorbell cameras, are a crucial addition to any smart home security system these days. And the doorbell camera integrates completely with your other security devices, helping you incorporate it even more into your everyday life.

Wondering how you can get the most out of your new doorbell camera? Check out these ideas to learn how!

A major perk of your doorbell camera, powered by Alarm.com, is the ability to see who is at your door even when you’re away from home. You’ll get an alert straight to your phone when a visitor rings your doorbell, allowing you to check in through your app, see a live video feed of your front door, and even communicate with the person through the microphone icon feature.

The best part is that you can see your visitors, but they can’t see you! That means whether you’re home or not, you decide how to respond, giving you ultimate peace of mind and control.

#2: Make Sure the Kids Get Home Safe

If you want to keep an eye on your children coming home after school, simply check in using the video feed on the app to put all your worries at ease. You can even create a custom alert triggered by your kids entering their user codes, so you know as soon as they make it home safely. Now that’s priceless!

#3: Accept Deliveries from Anywhere

Ever missed your delivery window? Not anymore! With a smart doorbell camera and smart home security system from QEI, you can see when a delivery is at your doorstep, verify the package, and even unlock your door with a smart door lock to receive the delivery. Then, lock the door again with the press of a button and watch the delivery person leave from your video feed! It’s that simple.

#4: Track Suspicious Activity

A wireless doorbell camera is also a great crime deterrent. Many burglars will ring the doorbell first to see if anyone is home, giving you the opportunity to scare them off through the microphone feature in your app.

Your doorbell camera also has a motion-sensored video feature that will begin recording as soon as a visitor sets foot on your porch, whether they ring your doorbell or not. It can capture and send footage of any suspicious behavior at your home, delivered straight to your phone to quickly share with law enforcement or neighbors. Now you can thwart package thieves for good!
