4 Tips That’ll Make You a RemoBell connoisseur

4tip

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 didn’t need me to
know that. You’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 you’re
enjoying your RemoBell.

 

Hopefully, you felt more at peace with your doorbell installed. However, the reason you came to
this article wasn’t to learn about how you’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 haven’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, there’s always cars and
pedestrians passing by. If you live in the suburbs, it’s more calmer and less movement around the
area. Depending on where you live, you probably want to change motion settings accordingly.
Don’t be flanked with notifications on your phone; just, adjust your motion so you get the calls that
actually matter.
Here is a how to guide on How to set up your motion.

 

 

3.Don’t drill… 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 – it’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 it’s the garage, your backyard, or your gate, be flexible on where you mount the
camera.
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 it’s too far from the Wi-Fi, you won’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

Battery Powered Video Doorbells v. Wire Powered Video Doorbells

An image of RemoBell connected to the outside
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 “wireless” 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.

There is more freedom with battery powered doorbell since– the power source is within the device.

Power?

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 you’ve already installed a wired power doorbell, then power shouldn’t be an issue.

Easy Installation

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. It’s a nightmare, and that’s why many customers who own a wired powered doorbell needs to call in an installer to set up their camera.

Specs

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 don’t have a pre-existing doorbell, then you have a $200 device collecting dust in your garage. With Battery powered video doorbells, you don’t need to live in a suburban home to surveillance your front door. It’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.
