Traditional doorbells are quickly going the way of the dinosaur as more connected options hit the market, like the Netgear Arlo doorbell. Netgear’s Arlo doorbell not only ups your home security, but it also helps to ensure that you never miss a visitor to your house ever again.
Since it connects to the accompanying app, the doorbell will automatically call you on your smartphone so that you know someone is at your door no matter where you are or what you are doing. So you won’t have to worry about missing friends when they visit or missing packages that are delivered to your door. It can be used with the company’s Arlo camera to let you see who’s at the door and provide some audio communication.
If you want to, you can also play a prerecorded message so that you don’t have to talk with the visitor. That comes in very handy for solicitors who show up at your door unannounced. Just play the message and let them be on their way. That way you haven’t wasted your time and they are nicely sent away.
This is great because I find doorbell sounds to be annoying in the house.
