Do you still use an old-fashioned wire-based doorbell system in your home? Most people probably do, even though wireless doorbell systems are slowly starting to become a more convenient option. The reasons for that are numerous, particularly because some wireless systems provide features that add a new level of security. For those with larger homes, having a doorbell you can literally take with you is one way to assure you won’t miss someone you’re expecting while avoiding others.
How Wireless Doorbells Work
Just like any other wireless device, you’ll need a router in order to program a device you can move around the house. No longer do you have to worry about installing a doorbell in just one part of the house and straining to hear the usually faint ringing sound. After many, many decades of wired doorbell systems being in use, the basic sound of those doorbells still hasn’t been made loud enough to hear throughout a larger home.
With a wireless doorbell device, you can take it wherever you go around the house so you can consistently monitor who’s ringing. Some wireless doorbell manufacturers even include an added option that gives a new level of security to those fearing who might be behind the door.
Wireless Video Doorbells
The days when you used to have to install a spyhole in your door to see who was ringing your doorbell doesn’t have to exist any more. That’s especially useful if you’re in a large house and don’t want to walk all the way to the front door to see who’s incessantly ringing your doorbell.
Many wireless doorbell systems are providing small cameras that can be installed over your front door. On your wireless device, you can hear the doorbell ring, plus see who the person is. Some even include a two-way intercom system so you can communicate with that person anywhere in your house. No more do you need those old crude intercom systems we’ve seen used for years in everything from homes to apartments.
Along with night vision sometimes added as an option, you basically have a much cheaper surveillance system you can carry with you. That means you can be in bed and monitor who’s at your door at 3 a.m. If it’s someone who won’t go away and not someone you recognize, you can quickly call police without having to guess who’s out there.
In this day and age where house invasions are starting to increase, not answering the door when you don’t have to can perhaps save your life. Fortunately, many wireless systems aren’t much more expensive than wired systems, which proves just how fast wireless systems have become integrated into mainstream society.
