SkyBell WiFi Doorbell

The SkyBell is the best of both worlds when it comes to doorbells and peepholes.  SkyBell is WiFi enabled and allows you to see, speak to, and hear the person at your door, wherever you are.  Even if they don’t ring the bell, SkyBell has a motion sensor that will detect their presence and send you a notification that someone was at your door.  It is designed to work in all climates, and the video feed can be enabled from anywhere.  Know that your home is safe and secure when you’re away. Setup is easy, as SkyBell uses your existing doorbell wiring. The camera also has a night vision sensor and the unit is constructed from UV plastics, which prevent rust and don’t block WiFi signal.  Buy ($169.95)
