The Perks of Smart Doorbells

Eliminate front door fears, worries and stress. A smart doorbell is essentially a microphone, speaker, night vision video camera, motion detector and lock or gate controller all-in-one product.

1) Increase Your Security

Eliminate front door fears, worries and stress. A smart doorbell is essentially a microphone, speaker, night vision video camera, motion detector and lock or gate controller all-in-one product. This allows the home owner to keep an eye and ear on the front door of their home while they are inside the home, away at work or on vacation.

2) Protect Your Packages

More Americans are doing their shopping online, which made up 9% of all retail sales in the United States as of September 2018 according to the Department of Commerce. But those packages, so often left out in the open upon delivery, are just too enticing to thieves. Adding a smart video doorbell allows the home owner to keep tabs on deliveries and get them inside faster than ever before possible.

*Low quality camera solutions will give you a
low chance of catching package pirates.

3) Cut out the Middle Man with Self Monitoring

Smart doorbell systems are easy to view or access from anywhere in the world that has a cell phone signal or an internet connection. This will give the home owner peace-of-mind never before achieved with a single device.

4) Save Money Every Month and Record Data Yourself

The Doorbird doorbell is one of the only smart doorbell systems that can save the home owner money by avoiding monthly recording fees. You can use a NVR (networked video recorder) that works the same way as a cable box DVR for recording front door events with no added monthly monitoring fees. Just add an additional recording device and you become the monitoring company. If you want to record longer than 2 weeks in a row, no problem, just add a larger hard drive to your NVR recording device and extend the amount for time that the doorbell camera and microphone records audio and video.

5) Add Quality Elegance

The German made, stainless steel smart video doorbell by Doorbird stands out as the best looking, highest quality smart doorbell on the market today. Commonly purchased Ring or Nest Plastic smart doorbells are just waiting to deteriorate and break in the extreme temperatures of the Austin, Texas heat. Why would you spend the time and money adding a smart home video doorbell if it’s just going to fall apart due to over exposure to our Texas sunlight?

6) Integrate With Other Smart Home Products

In order to make smart home devices communicate and work together with each other, they need to have an open or partially open API (Application Programming Interface). It’s no fun when you are limited to specific products that only work with preferred partners due to a closed API. Common examples are “Works with Nest”, “Works with Google Home”, “Works with Alexa”, or “Works with Homekit”. If the API were truly open, they would not need this badge and would only need to specify the connection type. Best practices to avoid confusion on compatibility are to work with a home technology integrator who has knowledge of device integration and automation protocols. This will save you time and money in the long run.

 It’s Important To Know

If your home is not properly wired for a smart home video doorbell, You may need to upgrade your wireless network range if your smart doorbell is too far from your network hot-spot.

*The calculated home technology budget range you will receive will includes parts, labor & accessories (Tax not included)
(a round number is OK)
Numerous structures on the property: Dock, Casita, Guest House, Barn, Gate etc. Check all that apply.
Prewire installation calculations assume you would like your home fully wired for ALL home automation technologies shown throughout the budget calculator, including 'future-ready' wiring. Prewire pricing can vary substantially based on what features you would like in your home. The wiring budget is for low-voltage wiring, not for electrical.
Prewire pricing will vary based on exactly what features you would like in your home. Read this article about the importance of wiring/cabling in today's "wireless" world. Your local Smarter Homes integrator is the best resource for exact prewire pricing. Wiring budget is for low-voltage wiring only, not electrical.
Keep in mind that our modern lifestyle and our home's automation technology systems are extremely reliant on a quality network and Wi-Fi system. Most homes are moving towards enterprise-grade hardware and away from the types of network products you could buy in an office supply store or a consumer computer store. We recommend that all homeowners consider the network and Wi-Fi system to be the most important system and installation within the home.
Higher-quality sound or higher-grade architectural finished speakers can range from $5,000.00 to $10,000.00 PER ROOM
Basic background music system pricing ranges from $1,500.00 to $5,000.00 per room including all equipment, labor, and programming.
Range includes video sources such as AppleTV, a Blu-ray player, satellite receiver, and remotely-locating them for best aesthetics. A basic soundbar is included for better audio.
This is called “video distribution” and reduces the amount of audio/video equipment located at each TV location/room.
A surround sound system creates an immersive sound experience, much like a dedicated home theater room, though in a dual-purpose room such as a Family Room, Master Bedroom, etc. If you would like more than one surround system location, click on the "Add Another Surround System" button below
Typically, homeowners want to see the following areas: front of house, front door, driveway / gate, sides of house, and pool. If you are more concerned about security, you may want to add cameras for the perimeter of your property. Good-quality cameras see about 75 feet of distance on average. The high range of the budget estimate includes higher resolution cameras, better night vision, and longer surveillance recording time.
The installation of a lighting control system reduces wall clutter, allows preset lighting scenes at the push of a button, increases security through programming automation, and adds convenience.
Motorized shades add beauty, convenience, address privacy concerns, and can be used to save energy. If desired, provide your best guess on how many windows/shades you want to motorize. The higher-end of the budget range includes higher-end fabrics, large windows, and dual-roller shades (both sheer and privacy shades on one window).
For example, a house music app, an app to operate your TV, an app for lighting automation, an app for locks, an app for cameras, an app to open close garage doors & gates, etc. Or do you want to control the entire house through a single unified app that controls all the automation systems within the home?
Make your home feel larger by balancing the light between indoor and outdoor areas.
