See and talk to whoever is at your front door using your smartphone. It doesn't matter if you're still in your bedroom, cooking dinner in the kitchen or driving home from work, all you need is this August Doorbell Cam, (and the app of course). Also, enjoy a camera that offers a crystal clear HD image every time, so there won't be any guess work involved in figuring out who is standing on your porch or at your front door.
Basically, with this August Doorbell Cam, you are going to get peace of mind from worrying about day time intruders (makes them think you are home), protection in general (never open up the door to a stranger again), as well as fun technology that can just make your life easier when you can't get to the door! What's not to love about all of that? Not much.
Overall the August Video Doorbell only receives 2.7 out of 5 stars by users on Amazon, and 3.5 out of 5 stars on CNET. Users claim the video quality is really good, the live stream option is helpful, the app is easy to navigate and the push notifications are timely. However, it doesn't offer video storage or motion detection (two features which are pretty standard in most other video doorbells), and it is an awkward shape, meaning it isn't going to fit onto every door frame.
