Prevent Porch Pirates with a Video Doorbell

by | Nov 30, 2019 | Blog, Home Security

In the weeks after black Friday deals and Cyber Monday shopping, porch pirates will be on the lookout for boxes sitting on your front porch. Packages often get left outside, waiting for your arrival home from work, with essentially nothing to deter thieves from snatching them up and keeping them for themselves!

So, for the avid online shopper, what can you do to keep your packages safe this holiday season, or really, all year round?

Video Doorbell: Easily Increase Home Security

 

If you’re looking for an easy way to keep an eye on your house while you’re away, a wireless smart doorbell is an easy, user-friendly and affordable way to achieve that. It doesn’t cover all the entry points as a full home security system does, but it will certainly deter unwelcomed people from the front of your house.

This, of course, includes package theft; however, it also can prevent robberies and notify you via smartphone of any motion detected. SEi offers and installs the Skybell video doorbell, a wireless smart doorbell that connects to your Wi-Fi and enables you to hear, see, and talk to whoever is at your door using your mobile device.

At any point in time, you can go into the app and view the live video. You can also be notified when the doorbell rings, and if you cannot watch live at that time you can download the video to view at a later time. You are able to turn on or off the motion detection alert and you can even turn off the chime so that at night, no one is disturbed if someone rings the doorbell.

Why Buy a Video Doorbell from SEi

It’s likely you’ve seen the advantages of a doorbell camera before. They can easily be bought online or at home improvement stores, but SEi offers more. Our professional security installation team will install the doorbell for you, as well as test that it’s working, and show you how the video doorbell and the app work.

You don’t have to have an entire home security system from SEi to purchase a video doorbell from us. We can install the doorbell camera completely separate from your residential security system or add it to an existing system. We’ll work with what you’ve got and what you want!

So what are you waiting for? Feel confident knowing who’s at your door, and keep those porch pirates away with a video doorbell from Security Equipment Inc., located in Omaha, Lincoln, Kansas City, and Des Moines. Contact us today to get your doorbell camera installed in no time.
