In terms of home security, smart video doorbells empower homeowners with a full-remote visitor identification method for anyone at their doorstep, all while also allowing for package delivery confirmations, which consequently, also makes their doorsteps much better protected against potential porch pirates that might try to steal said packages. Moreover, smart video doorbells also boast Night Vision capabilities, which allow for a 24/7 video-feed of your front-door. Last but not least, unlike the standard and “now-outdated” doorbell systems, smart video doorbells also send homeowners Smartphone Notifications automatically and in real-time, thus providing them with a live video feed of whoever is waiting at their front-door. So, if you’re looking for a smart video doorbell to upgrade your home, consider going with the IMILAB Smart Video Doorbell.

Equipped with a high-quality 4MP Camera Lens (F1.6 aperture) and a high-end 1/3 image sensor that can record 2.5K HD Video (2560 x 1440) and 720p Video

This 4MP Camera Lens comes equipped with a powerful and high-end 1/3 image sensor that makes the IMILAB Smart Video Doorbell capable of recording 2.5K HD Video with a 2560 x 1440 video-resolution, or alternatively, at a 720p Video Resolution (whether if their devices don’t support the higher resolution option, or if they’re looking to save battery either for the camera and their mobile devices).

More importantly, this smart video doorbell’s 4MP Camera Lens can even record video in a 150º Ultra-Wide Viewing-Angle, which ultimately gives users a fairly wide Field of View for the IMILAB Video Doorbell’s recorded 2.5K HD Video.

On top of that, this smart video doorbell also integrates a high-performance self-driven PIR (Passive Infra-Red) Motion Sensor that gives it Ultra Clear Night Vision technology, for which its IR Sensor will turn on automatically at night or whenever low-light conditions are detected (i.e. at the end of each day) to bring users a very clear image for the system’s video-feed at night-time.

More importantly, it’s also worth noting that the IMILAB Smart Video Doorbell’s PIR Motion Sensor is also powered by built-in AI Technology, which basically makes the videos doorbell’s image sensor capable of accurately detecting and recognizing humans, as well as filtering out animals or any other objects (like passing cars or bikes) on the background in order to avoid any potential false-alerts.

This basically ensures that homeowners always get a precise detection of people at their doorstep. In fact, the system’s AI-algorithm technology ultimately allows this smart video doorbell’s PIR Motion Sensor to intelligently detect people’s movement in just 0.01 second.

That AI Human Detection Technology ultimately allows this smart video doorbell system to provide homeowners with instant and super-precise Alerts (in the form of Smartphone Notifications via the system’s dedicated App) as soon as the person at their doorstep presses the system’s Doorbell Button, ultimately allowing homeowners to be able to hear talk to their visitors (or couriers) in real-time.

On top of all of that, the IMILAB Smart Video Doorbell also comes equipped with a Full Duplex 2-Way Audio System with a Noise Cancellation functionality that ultimately provides homeowners and their visitors with a reliable way of communicating with each other without requiring the homeowners to open the door (this is a great thing to have in a video doorbell, not only in terms of security, but also in terms of convenience, as you might not be able to immediately answer a courier with a package for you, for example).

Last but not least, and as said before, this smart video doorbell also comes with a Wi-Fi HUB Station that boasts a built-in Local Storage via the use of a MicroSD Card (up to 256GB), which provides homeowners with a local-storage option for storing the system’s recorded video-footage.

Best of all, each set also comes with a Wall-Mounting Corner Kit that allows homeowners to conveniently angle the system’s main video doorbell unit up to a 15º Viewing-Angle.

However, the system’s dedicated Wireless HUB can also work as a Wi-Fi Amplifier (on top of its already-mentioned built-in Local Storage function) that can release a 984ft frequency to ultimately enhance the Wi-Fi signal and coverage for the IMILAB Video Doorbell’s main unit.

For controlling all of the system’s different smart functionalities, all that users have to do is to download the IMILAB Home App, which is available to download for free for both iOS and Android devices.

First and foremost, via the IMILAB Home App, homeowners can monitor their front door in real-time.

Furthermore, the App also allows homeowners to configure different Key-Area Detection Sensitivity Settings with specific detection-distances for their IMILAB Video Doorbell in order to be able to accurately monitor specific areas. For that functionality, users can set the system’s Video-Trigger Alerts when a visitor appears within 6.56 ft. (2 m), 13.1 ft. (4 m), 19.58 ft. (6 m), or 26,24 ft. (8 m) from the doorbell.

Homeowners can also set a specific Video Record Time (up to 60 minutes) as well as set a Record Immediate function or a Trigger Time function (of either 5- or 10-seconds) after an expected (or even unwanted) visitor appears in those pre-configured Detection Zones, for which that said Trigger Time starts counting down before the system sends the homeowner an Alert to their Smartphone, which further helps to avoid false trigger alerts.

In addition to monitoring their front door in real-time, homeowners can also go back to the IMILAB Home App’s History-Feed, where they can check a full-event history and see what happened while they were away.

Moreover, homeowners can also check leaving messages from their visitors if they happen to miss a Smartphone Notification.

Last of all, the IMILAB Home App also allows homeowners to configure an Alert Ringtone for their Alert-Notifications for the possibility of strange activity and/or suspicious people at their doorstep, for which they can then send an Alarm to warn those said suspicious people that they’re being watched, which can ultimately help to discourage potential intruders.
