7 reasons you need the new SwannBuddy Video Doorbell – Pocket-lint
(Pocket-lint) – Smart security enthusiasts generally install video doorbells for two reasons – convenience and safety. Video doorbells are convenient because they allow you to see who’s at the door and communicate with them. If you receive a delivery, for example, you can ask the delivery guy to place the package on the porch step. You can also monitor your front door and receive push alerts whenever there’s an unwanted visitor.
But what if your video doorbell could serve many other purposes? What if your video doorbell could also alert you when it detects motion outside your door, monitor for heat signatures and emit a powerful siren when needed?
The SwannBuddy™ Video Doorbell is currently one of the most advanced video doorbells for smart homes on the market. It’s a budget-friendly and future-proof smart home device equipped with advanced motion detection and heat detection capabilities, so you receive intelligent alerts whenever there’s any motion from humans near your doorbell. This doorbell completely negates false alerts, so you’re only informed when there’s an actual visitor.
Below, we provide an overview of the reasons you need the new Swann Buddy Video Doorbell.
Crystal-clear horizontal or vertical view, as per your preference
The video doorbell has an integrated 1080p camera that can capture the sharpest details, allowing you to see potential intruders’ number plates and facial details. The camera has an ultra-wide 180-degree angle, which means you can view the entire periphery of your home, reducing the camera’s blind spots. You can also set the camera in vertical mode, allowing you to capture the person from top to bottom, so you can see the parcels left on the doorsteps.
Fewer false alarms with smart motion and heat detection capabilities
The SwannBuddy™ Video Doorbell is equipped with heat, motion, and person detection capabilities. The motion detector informs you whenever there’s any motion near the door, the heat detector looks for the heat signatures of actual people, eliminating the risk of false alarms, and the person detection feature identifies the shape of the heat signature. Thanks to these features, the Swann Buddy Video Doorbell ensures you only receive alerts when there’s actual movement from people near your door.
Automatic infrared vision ensures you’re never in the dark, even on the darkest night
The SwannBuddy™ Video Doorbell has powerful infrared lenses that ensure you’re never in the dark. As the night sets in, the camera will automatically switch to infrared night vision, allowing you to see people up to 16 feet (5 meters) away. This feature allows you to monitor the doorway even in the darkest night. Furthermore, the video doorbell also has an IP56 rating, so it can withstand all kinds of weather elements, such as rainfall and storms.
Optimal flexibility of installation – hardwired or wire-free installation
The SwannBuddy™ Video Doorbell offers 100% flexibility with installation. You can hardwire it to your home’s electrical circuit, thus ensuring it never runs out of power. Or you can simply attach it to your door without connecting it to the wires, i.e., battery-based installation. If you opt for battery operation, you can be guaranteed several months of power at one stretch, following which you’ll need to recharge the device. You can select the installation style that’s most convenient for you.
