Zmodo Greet Smart Wi Fi Video Doorbell with BeamView in galleryThe round, stylishly modern, and easy to install Skybell HD Video Doorbell provides high resolution 1080p video with up to 5x zoom in and an extra wide angle lens 180 degree field of view to really give you a bang for your video feed buck. Night vision is another feature that improves the visual connection you will have with whomever is at your door, as you can see them in full color HD video. One of the benefits of the Skybell HD Video Doorbell, in comparison to other video doorbells on the market today, is that it doesn’t require a paid monthly or annual video storage subscription, which means that your cost is your final cost. Your video footage is stored for free in the cloud for seven days, with the option for you to save footage to your phone if you want or need. The Skybell HD has a small backup battery but relies most heavily on being hardwired into your existing doorbell’s electrical. This wireless video doorbell is motion activated, which means that you will receive alerts to your smart phone when anything is close enough to the doorbell even if it doesn’t actually ring the doorbell, which is a nice security addition.

I'm going to stick with the title of the article states. SCAM!A Silverline salesperson came to my door to inform me that my previous security company Pinnacle has sold my contract to them and that they were going to upgrade my system free of charge and sign an agreement with them and pay the remainder of the Pinnacle contract off. Sounded great because Pinnacle wasn't living up to there contract. I cancelled with Pinnacle and received a final bill and faxed it to Silverline. I get a phone call later that week from Silverline asking me if I kept the old equipment, because they were not going to pay Pinnacle off and I needed to go back with them. What are you serious?They charged me two months of service and Pinnacle wants me to pay them two months of service to get reinstated. What a mess!So after a couple calls I managed to get my money back from Silverline!Beware of these tactics, make sure you call you're existing security provider first before making any changes!Yes, I agree it is a SCAM. They targeted my elderly mother, who had ADT signs in her yard AND a no solicitations sign on BOTH of her front doors. And what kind of a reputable company offers a THREE day trial on a three year contract?My mother contacted her sales rep RYAN LYMAN as in LIE MAN, should have been a hint!within her three days. He told her she had to put it in writing and mail it to the company in Utah. There went the three days!I found out about this and tried to call Mr.

But this is the ecosystem Amazon is building. Most of us still associate Amazon with free shipping and VOD, but the company really wants a piece of the government action. Whatever it hasn't tied up in hosting and storage, it's looking to collect via surveillance tech. Amazon is selling as much facial recognition software as it can to law enforcement agencies despite recent controversies and now it's hoping its home products will attract more subsidized deployments. Local law enforcement provides the public with cheap or free doorbell cameras and swings by for the footage whenever needed. Who isn't going to feel obligated to hand this over to the cops when they come asking?As the EFF's Dave Maass points out, if cops wanted to outfit a ton of homes with surveillance cameras they could access at any time, there would be some pushback.
