Best Wireless Video Doorbells

The Smart Security Doorbells 

And why wireless doorbells are essential for every property

Doorbells. Chymes, Metal Clankers that used to be on front doors are something of the past. A past time when there was no wireless technology or smart ways to protect the entrance to your home. Your front door.

Times were different. And the serious needs of knowing who's at your door weren't there. Or at least we didn't think of it. All we did was tell the kids never to open the doors to stranger.

But times have changed. People have changed. Society is no longer how it used to be, and we now have technology to make our lives better, easier and safer.

Why is owning a smart wireless doorbell now essential?

It might not be news to you. You might however think that crime rates are dropping (which is true in most parts of the world) - but that's referring more to aggressive violent crimes as well as online cyber attacks.

Just last year - the FBI reported that burglaries were increasing everywhere. Regardless of country, state or suburb.

The report revealed an estimated number of home invasions and burglaries to be a whopping 1.5 million. And that's 1.5 million over one single year. And the majority of them were home and residential incidents. And most of them happened during daylight hours. How crazy is that?

One easy way to safeguard against property theft, home invasion, porch pirates, and even unwanted solicitors is to identify who is at your doorstep before opening your door. Enter the video doorbell, a first line of defense for homeowners that not only lets you see and speak with whoever is outside, but will also record footage of visitors that approach your door while you're away or unable to answer.

These smart devices typically use Wi-Fi to stream live video to your phone and offer a variety of features, including cloud video storage, motion detection, interoperability with smart locks, sirens, and other smart home devices, and more. Read on to find out what to look for when choosing a video doorbell for your home.

Wired or Wireless

When choosing a smart doorbell you have to decide if you want a wireless device that runs on batteries or one that gets its power from low-voltage doorbell wiring. Naturally, a wireless doorbell is the easiest type to install, as it draws power from batteries rather than from your home's electric and doesn't require that you turn off power or mess with any wiring whatsoever. The downside to wireless doorbells is that their batteries tend to deplete batteries quickly depending on usage, lasting anywhere from two to six months. If you live in an area where the winters are cold you can expect to recharge or replace your batteries every couple of months, and run the risk of your doorbell shutting down at an inopportune time.


Today, there are a huge variety of wireless doorbells that you can buy online and install in minutes. These products don’t require any wiring, and they’ll inform you when someone is waiting at your door.

When you’re shopping for a wireless doorbell, you’ll want to consider whether it needs to be waterproof, how far the range between the button and the receiver should be, and whether you want camera functionality. If you're not sure where to start, here are the top-rated wireless doorbells that you can choose from.
