Congratulations! You are an individual who surely cares about reliable home security- the
RemoBell is the most dependable security doorbell that you can find, but you didnâ€™t need me to
know that. Youâ€™re probably using it right now – checking when your packages arrive, talking to
with your guests, or seeing if someone is trying to play games with your home.Well, I hope youâ€™re
enjoying your RemoBell.
Hopefully, you felt more at peace with your doorbell installed. However, the reason you came to
this article wasnâ€™t to learn about how youâ€™re enjoying the heck out of your doorbell right? It was to
find those little tips that will enhance your RemoBell experience. Well, here are 4 things you need
to know that will take you from a RemoBell user to a RemoBell connoisseur
1.Recharge your batteries.
When you received your RemoBell, it came with 6AA rechargeable batteries. If you havenâ€™t already,
you need to buy 6 more AA batteries and a battery charger. This way, you can switch between the
two sets of battery, and, basically, never worry about charging your device. Other battery operated
surveillance system are gonna make you wait days for it to fully charge. You want to know what
that is — time your home is not protected. Protect your home at all time.
We recommend the EBL AA Battery Charger
2.Adjust your motion setting
With every home, the environment is always different. If you live in the city, thereâ€™s always cars and
pedestrians passing by. If you live in the suburbs, itâ€™s more calmer and less movement around the
area. Depending on where you live, you probably want to change motion settings accordingly.
Donâ€™t be flanked with notifications on your phone; just, adjust your motion so you get the calls that
Here is a how to guide on How to set up your motion.
3.Donâ€™t drillâ€¦ tape it
The beauty that comes with the RemoBell is that you can place the doorbell wherever you want.
Because it is battery powered, there are no limitations to where you could mount it. However, a
stumbling block could be that you cannot drill a certain part of your home, like the door or your
garage. There are adhesive mounting tape that works like a charm, and trust me – itâ€™s strong. You
can place the tape on the back of your bracket then take the safety strip off the tape to attach it to
your wall. Whether itâ€™s the garage, your backyard, or your gate, be flexible on where you mount the
We recommend the Exterior Scotch Mounting Tape
4.Extend your WiFi range
Every Wi-Fi enabled device has an issue when they are too far from the router. Whether it is your
laptop or your phone, if itâ€™s too far from the Wi-Fi, you wonâ€™t get a stable connection. The RemoBell
reacts the same way. However, you can improve your Wi-Fi by getting an
extender. A Wi-Fi extender is a plug in antenna that boosts the range of your network connection;
so, if you place the DoorBell by the gate of fence, it will cover further lengths of your home.
We Recommend the TP-Link AC12000

In the Smart Home industry, the biggest trend among security cameras is outdoor wireless video doorbells. For those of you who do not know what wireless video doorbells are, in a nutshell, they are security cameras that connect to your WiFi so that you may monitor the outside of your door through your phone when a guest rings.
The popular misconception with wireless video doorbell is that there is an assumption they do not need to be connected to a power cable. That is not completely true. The â€świrelessâ€ť part means that you do not need an ethernet wire to connect your device to the Internet.
By looking at the title of this blog, you probably can piece together that there are video doorbells that are wireless in every sense of the word. Battery powered doorbells are also available, but which one is better?
Place it anywhere you want
When you have a wire powered video doorbell, your video doorbell placement is excluded to where the pre-existing doorbell was. The perks of battery powered video doorbell is that you can install the device anywhere around your house: your front door, your porch, your backyard, or maybe even by your master bedroom. There is more freedom with battery powered doorbell since– the power source is within the device.
Winner: Battery Powered Doorbell
Batteries, at one point or another, you are gonna have to switch them out. The good thing about Battery Powered Doorbells is that most devices last for at least 4 months and they come with rechargeable batteries; however, if youâ€™ve already installed a wired power doorbell, then power shouldnâ€™t be an issue.
Winner: Wire Powered DoorBell
With battery powered doorbells, all you need to do is connect the device to your app through your WiFi. Imagine unscrewing your pre-existing doorbell, handling electrical wires, messing with the breaker, and hoping your house has enough power to power the doorbell. Itâ€™s a nightmare, and thatâ€™s why many customers who own a wired powered doorbell needs to call in an installer to set up their camera.
Winner: Battery Powered Doorbell
Wire powered video doorbells, most products can shoot up to 1080p resolution, while battery powered video doorbells can only go up 720p. In this aspect, wire powered video doorbells are clearly the winner; however, internet plays a huge factor in resolution. If your internet is not as good, then your 1080p can drop down to 480p the whole time you use your camera. The doorbell comparison on resolution can always vary.
Don’t have electrical wires?
Do you live in an apartment? Do you have a gate? Do you live in the city where there are no doorbells? These are the limitation with wired powered doorbells. If you donâ€™t have a pre-existing doorbell, then you have a $200 device collecting dust in your garage. With Battery powered video doorbells, you donâ€™t need to live in a suburban home to surveillance your front door. Itâ€™s accessible.
Winner: Battery Powered Doorbell
In the end, Battery Powered Doorbells are more convenient, easy to setup, accessible, and with less limitation. However, if you are looking for a doorbell that does not require the constant changing of batteries and better resolution, then wire powered video doorbells is a good option. The facts are on the table, it is your choice to decide which wireless security camera is the right fit for you.

When we first released RemoCam in November 2015, our focus was to create a smart home security camera that was smart, intuitive, caring, and — simple. Installing a Smart Home Security Device is like listening to a joke, if you donâ€™t get it the first few times, then it’s a bad joke.
Itâ€™s simple: installing a Smart Home Security Device shouldnâ€™t be complicated.
Therefore, we instilled our belief of efficiency and convenience when we designed our first fully battery powered Wireless Video Doorbell: RemoBell.
Every little detail within RemoBell, from its durable exterior design to its high definition video streaming, was accounted for while developing this product. RemoBell also has the most crisp 2-way audio feature in the market with a 120Â° wide-angle HD Video quality to capture a crystal-clear picture of the Â front of your house.
It also comes with a protective bracket, in which can be hooked onto any surface, and a set of screws that will ensure that the RemoBell is mounted securely.
When we say that RemoBell can be mounted anywhere– it can literally be mounted ANYWHERE and ANYPLACE. No more worrying about wires, plugs, or electrical outlets to power the RemoBell.
With its fully battery powered feature, RemoBell is literally a â€śWirelessâ€ť Video Doorbell in every sense of the phrase.
Fully Battery Powered
While designing RemoBell, we listened to the many complaints customers had with other video doorbells in the market. The most echoed issue was the difficulty of installing the doorbell camera, the lack of wattages in their homes to power their camera, and the fact that living in a doorbell-less home means your gonna have a $200 product collecting dust.
RemoBell is a fully battery powered doorbell, so no need to spend extra expenses on hiring installers or handling dangerous electrical wires. All you need are 6 AA batteries, place them onto the back of the RemoBell, hook it onto a wall, connect it to your WiFi, and your fully functioning security monitoring system is all good to go.
If your battery dies, then donâ€™t wait a whole day to fully charge your doorbell; just change the batteries. Home security should never take a break, even if it is only for a day. One of the best part of this device is that the batteries will last you around 4 months and our RemoBell App will let you know how much battery life is left.
High-End PIR Motion Sensor
RemoBell also comes with an advanced heat detecting PIR motion sensor. The camera will only alert you when it detects both motion and body heat from another person. Too many time have we received random or unnecessary motion notification from our security camera apps. Â
You wonâ€™t ever have to worry about getting a push notification just because there are some high winds or some trees start to shed some leaves. Â
Rain or Shine, Wind or Snow, Hot or Cold
While developing RemoBell, we focused on its weatherproof exterior design to function under extreme temperature as low as 0Â° and as high as 120Â°. RemoBell was engineered to withstand the harshest of elements whether it may be hard rain, thick snow, high winds, or physical impact.
Its seamless robust design is sealed tightly to relieve users of any concerns over any interior or exterior damages.
Smart, Intuitive, and Caring
Protecting your home shouldnâ€™t be complicated. Installing a Smart Home device shouldnâ€™t be an intricate process either. You should be able to hook your security camera at your front door, connect it to your phone, and monitor your home without any issues.
Our team at Olive & Dove wanted to provide a security system that is accessible to everyone Â and a doorbell that is Â smart, intuitive, and caring for you and your family.

Living off-campus was one of my best decisions while in college; although, to be fair, the food at my school was at best high school lunch quality. Still, living off-campus meant cooking my own food, coming home whenever I wanted to, and finally putting a ping pong table in the living room.
Many college students choose to live off-campus because they finally get that independence theyâ€™ve always wanted since living on-campus has its rules and limitations. However, with too much freedom comes overbearing responsibility, and some students keep the same home security habits as when they lived in the dorms.
Here are common mistakes students make that makes them vulnerable for a break-in.
1. Forgetting to Lock the Door.
The rule of thumb to ensure 100% door security is to lock the deadbolt, and then checking to see if it is completely secured every time you leave the house. Everyone knows these procedures; however, if youâ€™re a college student and you think that your friend is home because he has class at 7pm, you might leave the houseÂ with the doors unlocked. Well– that is a gamble that could bite you in the back.
Students tend to forget to lock all doors and, most times, they forget that the windows, the back doors, and the garage doors need to be locked as well. Lock the doorsâ€¦ Always lock the doors.
2. Letting Door to Door Salesmen Inside your Home
In college, I had one suspicious pest control salesperson knocking on my door selling his product and then asking if he could use our bathroom. We did not let him in, but our neighbors did, and guess what happened after we came back from the holidays.
If you live in a college city, you are quite aware of when school starts and when the holidays come around. You are not the only one– burglars and home intruders know this as well. Â Therefore, when the semester is almost ending, they will go door to door to scoping out some of the stuff students have in their home. Donâ€™t fall for their trick and always be cautious.
3. Leaving All Of Your Valuables for Display
To be more specific, forgetting to conceal your TVs or gaming consoles for the holidays. There are many college students who forget to cover their TVâ€™s with a blanket or hiding their desktops under their bed. Unless you take those items with you during your break, hide all your valuables.
Even if you close all the blinds in your home or cover your whole house with a giant blanket, there will always be daylight that will sneak its way through.
4. Posting on Social Media
Social Media is sooo dangerous. It is an amazing tool, but it is so dangerous. Millennials love to post on social media. I love to post on social media. However, we forget how many people look into our posts.
When students post that they will miss everyone during the holidays and how their whole housemates will be gone for break that is like hanging an LED sign saying â€śEMPTY HOUSE ENTER HEREâ€ť. Be safe, and avoid posting about leaving .
Let Us Know
Move-in day is an exciting time for all college students. It is the next chapter that they will embark on their lives. They will meet their lifelong friends, expand their knowledge, and grow as an individual.
Yet, before all that the most exciting time for any college students is when they finally grasp their independence through their dorm life. However, living in the dorms can be dangerous as 11,000 dormitory robberies occur every year.
I know– how can dorms get burglarized. Well, independence, meeting new people, and that â€ścollege experienceâ€ť can be so euphoric that it keeps studentâ€™s guards down. Â Here are 3 security mishaps every college student should keep in mind.
1. Not locking your doors
If you are a parent, you will be shocked by how many students leave their dorm rooms unlocked when they go out. If you are a student, you probably understand why you leave the dorm room unlocked– itâ€™s a hassle and the dorm security is already great.
However, getting inside a residence hall is ridiculously easy; you just wait for a resident to open the doors. There are also neighboring students who may go around stealing other peopleâ€™s belongings.
Burglary in the dorm is no news, as it happens frequently; however, how easy students make it Â for burglars to steal their stuff can make you scratch your head. Always lock your doors and remind your roommates as well.
2. Opening doors for stranger
Many resident halls have a great security system that prevents outsiders from coming in. Yet, burglars always find a way to get inside the building. Actually, all you need to do is wait for a resident to come by and say â€śohâ€¦ I forgot my keysâ€ť, then theyâ€™re in.
Not even that, some students just let strangers into their residence hall without even asking. Echo the importance of not letting strangers in your residence hall.
3. Leaving valuables around
When you have hundreds of students living in the same residence hall, you can best believe that these students will visit each other’s dorms frequently. However, the issue occurs when a roommate invites his friend to his dorm, and then the friend steals a valuable in that room.
With so many students visiting each otherâ€™s dorm, an expensive laptop can just disappear if it is not attended for. Buy a Masterlock to store your valuables in a drawer or buy a home security camera to see who tries to steal your stuff.

If you are like me– you take pride in being â€śThe Cookâ€ť for Thanksgiving. There are no medals, you receive no trophies, nor will others know of the planning and hard work you pour into this craft, but seeing those glistening eyes as they indulge in your stuffing is more than rewarding. However, if you are like me, you stress about what to make for Thanksgiving. You can always bring out the cranberry sauce, cornbread, mashed potatoes, and turkey, but you want each Thanksgiving to be a different experience.
If you are struggling to find that â€śthatâ€ť new dish, I found 7 incredible recipes online that will even have the wives next door talking about your Thanksgiving.
Warm Turkey Sliders
To start off your festivity of Â turkey consumption, why not tease your family with some warm turkey sliders. These sliders is the epitome of thanksgiving. There are turkey, jam, and some warm brothy provolone cheese. Turkey Sliders are the greatest tease to what they should expect for their main course.
Oven Baked Mashed Potatoes
Mash Potatoes are one of the staple dishes of thanksgiving. This creamy, starch filled, mashed up carbs has always been a family favorite for all ages. BUT, what if you could add a twist to one of Americaâ€™s favorite carbs by baking it in the oven. An oven baked mashed potato is like a healthier biscuit, but keeping all the savory flavors of a mashed potato. Â
Cream Corn Casserole Recipe
Do you like cornbread? Everyone likes cornbread. But what if you turned that corn bread into a huge bowl of casserole. Cream Corn Casserole is like finding a curly fry in your regular box of french fries– itâ€™s a hidden gem. Once you try a cream corn casserole, the way you look at corn will completely change. YOU MUST TRY A CREAM CORN CASSEROLE!
Light Skillet Corn Bread
Corn Bread is the complement to any dish. Eat it with mash potato, make a sandwich with turkey, dip it in gravy, cranberry sauce, the list goes can go on and on.

Itâ€™s easy, fast to make, and you wonâ€™t feel guilty for eating too many cornbreads.
Sweet Potato Casserole with Marshmallow Pecan Streusel

Apricot Glazed Bacon Wrapped Cajun Pork Tenderloin
The picture above should be enough to convince you to make some Apricot Glazed Bacon Wrapped Cajun Pork Tenderloin for Thanksgiving.

Slow Cooker Honey Soy Glazed Turkey Breast
Cooking turkey is no easy task. The tools, the time, and the precision needed to roast a turkey makeÂ it the hardest dish to cook. However, if you do not have all the tools to roast a turkey, there is another alternative. You can slow cook your turkey breast to give it that rich and juicy taste. Itâ€™s easy, itâ€™s different, and you can add more flavor to your turkey.

It is amazing how many residents do not think about home security because they live in an apartment complex. Breaking into an empty apartment is almost as easy as breaking into a house. In fact, there have been cases where some â€ścunningâ€ť home intruders, who dressed up as police officers, broke into two apartments.
Just as how burglars target apartments different from single family houses, we also have to approach some home security measures differently. Here is a list of security tips you should use if you live in an apartment.
1. Avoid Ground-Floor Apartments
Selecting which floor you live in an apartment can determine how much more you have to worry about your home security.
Ground floor apartments are vulnerable for break-in because tenants will have to worry about both the front door and windows, while most higher floor apartments only need to worry about the front door. So, if you plan to live on the ground floor, just remember to take extra precautions.
2. Create a Security Pact with Neighbors
If you live in an apartment complex, befriending a neighbor is way more effective than if you lived in a neighborhood of 2-story houses; your neighbors are literally a door over.
40% of burglars have stated that the proximity of neighbors is an effective deterrent. Create a pact with your neighbors and look out for each othersâ€™ homes.
3. Ask the Landlord A LOT of Questions
It is always smart to befriend your landlord and ask them any questions regarding the apartment security and any past incidences of break-ins. You want to know what extra security measures you need to take in order to ensure your apartment is safe.
Another question to ask your landlord is whether your door locks have been changed from the previous tenants. Sometimes landlords forget, so always keep your landlord accountable.
4. Place a Security Camera Inside Your Home
It is no surprise why burglars find security cameras as the number one factor to consider when targeting a home. Home Security Cameras provide surveillance, alarms, and concrete evidence.
However, security systems can become very expensive, if you purchase from companies like ADT. But, if you want a cheaper alternative that captures the whole apartment for a cheaper price, get yourself a smart home security camera.
5. Buy Extra EXTRA DeadBolts
Most burglars want to be in and out of a home as quick as possible; they only try to spend 8 to 12 minutes per home. That is why, having extra deadbolts are crucial. Â Apartment spaces are small, so searching and grabbing jewelry is quick and easy.
All they would need to do is break down the door and just quickly go through the apartment, compared to a house that is a bit bigger and more area to cover. Also, 59.2% of burglaries occurred with some form of force, so have that extra fortification for your front door.
6. Peephole Alternative
The peephole has always been the ultimate front door monitoring tool; however, with its fish lens view, you cannot get aÂ clear picture of everything Â outside your apartment. Hence comes the peephole alternative: a wireless video doorbell. These devices are taking over the smart home security market because it monitors the most important entryway for an apartment — the front door.
The issue with many video doorbells is that it requires some type of wire; however, Â if you are worried about that then think of investing on a RemoBell that only require batteries. Â Place it anywhere outside your home and still get that full monitoring experience.

What if I was to tell you that there was a time when people actually had to walk up to the TV to change the channel. If you are a millennial, you probably just fell off your chair. But, that is why remote controls are the greatest invention since sliced bread. To control a deviceâ€¦ through a remoteâ€¦ without the need to get off your seat? Mind boggling!
Remote controls can seem like old news, but when you have a home security camera that can control any remote control device, then eyebrows start to raise up. Like this TV right here.
