Each dbell comes with a wireless indoor chime that can be placed just about anywhere on your property. Once paired with the doorbell, it will chime whenever the bell is pushed, so if your smartphone or tablet is not with you, you can still hear the bell. Up to four chimes can be connected to one doorbell, and placed around your property. You can even choose the chime you want from a list of 52 different tones and control the volume level of your indoor chime. You can also upload your own music to play when someone rings your doorbell!
When setting your preferences you can also choose what sound you want your smartphone or tablet to make when the doorbell rings. You can record a video of the conversation with the person standing at your front door. You can take a still picture of them as well. You can set a maximum time for conversations to last. You can choose to set the intensity of the motion detector feature, or you can turn it off altogether if you don’t want it. There is also a feature that will allow you to remotely unlock the front door for someone, if you already have an electronic door lock.
And That’s Not All..
It’s not hard to find new and creative ways to use the doorbell. Even if someone doesn’t ring the bell, you can tap in to the camera and see the view from your front door, even if it’s just to check the weather. Jane Dominie likes the camera feature so much that she may buy a second doorbell for the back door of the inn, just so she can see a view of the ocean when she’s away. And even better, her husband always knows how to find her.
“My husband used to have a cell phone but he’d never take it with him,” says Jane. “I’d call him and the phone would ring in the closet. So I got rid of his phone and now we use the doorbell as a connection between us. If he wants me for something he just goes and rings the doorbell and we talk!”
