Maximus designs dual camera video doorbell

Techstination feature for Wednesday, January 30, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        Maximus…a company that has brought first rate outdoor lighting to market with built in connected cameras….has announced a dual cam video doorbell.   It is called Answer.  It features a high end Ambarella camera chip.   So what’s the idea behind having two cameras instead of one?    CEO Mark Honeycutt…

“We’ve got the forward facing camera which our competitors have as well.  But we also have a downward facing camera as well.  So we have a full 180 degree field of vision  with no blind spots.  When you are viewing the camera live or watching a pre-recorded video it streams simultaneously.”

The downward facing camera makes it easy to check on packages left at the door. The Answer  should arrive this spring for under 200 dollars.     You can find us at Techstination.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
