Using Video Doorbell +

The Devicebook Video Doorbell solution presents a suite of features involving the home's front door, from detecting visitors and enabling live communication with them, to detecting packages at the front door, and raising alerts if they may have been stolen.



Controlling and Monitoring Video Doorbell +

Devicebook Video Doorbell + can be controlled directly from the Devicebook App for a mobile phone or a Wall Pad.

You can use the Devicebook App to see if a visitor is at your door, see a live view of your doorstep or start a real-time conversation with a visitor at your door. You can also monitor the status of any optional sensors that have been installed at your front door.

You can adjust settings for Video Doorbell + in the Settings tab.

Wall Pad

Just as you would with your mobile phone's Devicebook App, you can monitor your home's front door using a Wall Pad.

A Wall Pad will verbally announce when someone is detected at your door, even if they don't ring the doorbell. This setting can be modified in the Video Doorbell notification settings.
