That’s a great feeling, and one of the ways to get that feeling more easily is to focus on having a doorbell camera. Being able to see who is there before a homeowner open the door matters — but this kind of camera can provide a lot more than just seeing the person on the front porch from another room in the house. Now, thanks to the latest and greatest technology, a homeowner can use their doorbell camera to see the person on their porch from wherever they are — even if they aren’t home at all. When paired with the best choice for home security, a doorbell camera can be the right option. They usually cost between $150 and $250, with some models costing slightly more or slightly less than that. This is a small price to pay for security in the minds of most homeowners, however, and a fair deal for those who are away from home a lot of the time. They want to see what is happening at their home, and if they have a doorbell camera they are essentially paying for peace of mind. Most homeowners feel that is a price they are happy to pay, because they don’t have to worry about whether someone ringing the security doorbell will realize they aren’t home and try to cause a problem. Being able to communicate through the camera and doorbell arrangement lets anyone ringing the bell think that someone is home, which can more easily deter vandals, burglars, and others who could become a problem. When we reviewed the August Doorbell Cam Pro back in 2017, it earned our Editors' Choice for its sharp video quality, clean two way audio, and easy installation. The newest member of the August family, the wireless View Doorbell Camera $229, is even easier to install than its wired sibling and delivers sharp video, so why does it receive a lower rating?For starters, its iOS app can use some fine tuning.

The solicitor allegedly said he’d return and speak with the homeowner when she was working on her lawn, and claimed that someone would cut her phone lines and break into her house. The homeowner was so upset she called police. Sheriff’s deputies were able to make contact with two solicitors that evening: Anthony Depaola and Stanley Sanchez, both of who said they were not aware that they could not be out soliciting that late, though city regulations make that clear to all permitted solicitors. They came to my home at 8:30. I opened the door, determined that he was not the FedEx guy I was waiting for, said I was not interested. He said he was not selling anything.
