Video Doorbells all start out the same…
They allow you to see who’s at the door and have a two-way voice conversation with them from your mobile app. They all allow you to answer your door whether you are at home or away.
This is where the similarities end. A video doorbell from Forest, works with your security system. Why is this so important? Let’s say it’s dark out and your doorbell rings. You can’t see who is there, but you can turn on your porch lights right from within the same call screen app since they are all connected together. You can even set up Video Analytic Rules to turn them on automatically!
What else can video analytics do?
The average doorbell camera records motion-triggered video clips, but do you really need to see everything that moves? A doorbell with Forest’s video analytics filters video alerts in advance. It can tell the difference between people, animals and vehicles, and pinpoint activity in different areas of your front yard.
You can set it to ignore vehicles that pass by, but alert you if a car pulls into your driveway. You can have it ignore someone that walks by but notify you if a delivery person drops off a package. Just specify what you want to see, and let your security system filter out everything else.
Manage your home for visitors and guests
At work when a guest or your dog walker arrives? Just unlock the door from your doorbell call screen, Residential – Access Control | Forest Security to allow them to go inside. Renovating your home? Give contractors access to your house anytime from the app, plus you’ll be able to keep track of when they’re coming and going.
You can say hello to the kids as they arrive home after school, and set your system to turn on the lights as they arrive. The convenience of being able to see who’s at your door and allow them inside saves time and keeps your family safer.
