Lifeshield introduces new HD video doorbell for better home security
January 08, 2019
LifeShield announced their new smart home product, the LifeShield HD Video Doorbell, which integrates directly with the LifeShield home security system. The new Wi-Fi-enabled doorbell camera, featuring full 1080p HD video resolution and two-way audio support, allows homeowners to screen visitors with clarity and engage them in conversation through the LifeShield mobile app or security touchpad. The video doorbell can be installed and operated through hardwire or via an optional rechargeable battery.
The LifeShield HD Video Doorbell also features sophisticated day and night vision modes, giving homeowners the ability to see approaching visitors at any time of the day, including in low light or cloudy conditions. Through the LifeShield home security system, homeowners can record and store media clips, and watch it live on-demand at their convenience. The camera’s motion detection technology can distinguish between people and other objects, preventing unneeded notifications and recordings. In the event of an approaching door visitor, the LifeShield home security system is notified and homeowners receive a push notification with a video preview of the live event that can be viewed on the mobile app or security touchpad.
A recent report estimated that nearly 26 million Americans have had packages stolen from their homes during the holiday season. “With the shift toward online shopping behavior, package delivery has spawned a new crop of porch pirates and stoop surfers in the U.S. As a result, we know homeowners, more than ever, are seeking better visibility to protect what’s happening both inside and outside their homes,” explained John Owens, Chief Executive Officer at LifeShield. “Our new video doorbell adds to our vision to make LifeShield smart home security truly an end-to-end solution for security-savvy homeowners.”
