What Should I Pay Attention to When Buying a Doorbell in the UK?

Video doorbells are very popular all over the world. In fact, the principle of choosing video doorbells in most areas is the same, but in the UK, some additional conditions are required: waterproof. Because it often rains in the UK, if the video doorbell is not waterproof, it is easy to break.

Pros and cons of video doorbell:

Pros:

  • Convent: You can talk to visitors while sitting on the sofa or even on the other side of the world. You will never miss any package delivery or visiting friends.
  • Security: The thief likes the room without people the most. But you can use the video doorbell to make the thief think you are at home, so as to protect the safety of the house.
  • Never miss a visitor, even when you’re out: The ability to receive alerts remotely means you’ll never miss a caller. Live-view footage will let you confirm parcels have been delivered or that your children have arrived home, for example.
  • Smart home compatibility: Some doorbells have functions compatible with functional devices such as Amazon Alexa or Google Home. Even some models are compatible with smart locks. This way you don’t even need to go downstairs to open the door for your friends. This is not a necessary advantage of a good video doorbell, but it will be more convenient if it has this function.

Cons:

  • Size: While some video doorbells are sleek and can be installed so they blend into the wall or door where you want to place them, cheaper models tend to be bigger and bulkier than a standard doorbell, so they will look rather obvious on your door.
  • Cost: Choosing a doorbell of £100 will hurt our wallet. However, please do not consider doorbells under £40, because they are not reliable at all after testing. Choosing a doorbell under £50 is a waste of money.
  • Installation may be troublesome: If you choose a wired doorbell, you may need to find a professional electrician to install it for you, which may be an additional cost.
  • Subscription fee: This is another additional expense. In order to store the video, some doorbells require payment of subscription fees, and the annual fee may even be as high as £100.
