Lifeshield DIY home security adds video doorbell

Techstination feature for Thursday, August 15, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.      ADT’s LifeShield do it yourself home security system keeps getting better.   The company has now brought a video doorbell to market to give users even more security options.   Like competing products on the market…it is designed to use existing doorbell wiring.   It features an HD wide angle camera…with automatic night vision….and lets you communicate with visitors at your door from anywhere.  Chief Product Officer Doug Bellinger…

“It has people detection.  So instead of just getting a notification whenever the wind blows you can actually track whenever a person comes to your door.  The doorbell is actually integrated with Alexa.  So when somebody pushes the button, not only do you get a push notification with an image that shows you who it is, but you also get Alexa to announce somebody’s at your front door which has been a really cool feature."

Lifeshield integrates with and lets you control other smart home equipment too.    For more…head to Lifeshield.com.
