Frequently Asked QuestionsStill Have Questions?
Both generations of Video Doorbell send notifications to your phone, tablet and PC when anyone presses your doorbell or triggers the built-in motion sensors. When you answer the notification, you can see, hear and speak to visitors from anywhere.
Regarding main differences, the new Video Doorbell has 1080p HD video (vs 720p HD), an additional “near” motion zone that provides motion detection in areas only 5’-15’ in front of your home, and a revamped mounting setup that simplifies installation and removal for battery charging. The new Video Doorbell also has improved audio quality and crisper night vision.
Video Doorbell is powered by a rechargeable, built-in battery or can be hardwired to existing doorbell wiring for continuous charging.
The new Video Doorbell is only backwards compatible with charging cable and a new mounting bracket comes in the box. Wedge and Corner Kits are sold separately. Solar mounts are not optimized for the new Video Doorbell and an updated version is available for purchase.
