NEWS – Last year, I tested and reviewed LifeShield’s DIY Home Security System that included a modern security base and panel along with a security camera and all of the necessary security accessories. This is a completely wireless security system although the base station does include the option for using an Ethernet cable and beyond your wireless network, there is cell service built in for continuous monitoring. Since I tested and reviewed the system, it has remained installed in my home as the security system of choice and has performed all functions reliably and effectively.
Now there is a new addition to add even more flexibility and automation. LifeShield has just announced the new HD Video Doorbell that can be added to their existing system and allow for video monitoring of anyone near your door. According to LifeShield, “The new Wi-Fi-enabled doorbell camera, featuring full 1080p HD video resolution and two-way audio support, allows homeowners to screen visitors with clarity and engage them in conversation through the LifeShield mobile app or security touchpad. The video doorbell can be installed and operated through hardwire or via an optional rechargeable battery. The LifeShield HD Video Doorbell also features sophisticated day and night vision modes, giving homeowners the ability to see approaching visitors at any time of the day, including in low light or cloudy conditions. Through the LifeShield home security system, homeowners can record and store media clips, and watch it live on-demand at their convenience. The camera’s motion detection technology can distinguish between people and other objects, preventing unneeded notifications and recordings.”
With the recent explosion of package thefts of packages left at front doors and on porches, several companies have released video doorbells. LifeShield’s new doorbell is a common sense addition to their current security ecosystem, and if it performs as well as the rest of their equipment, it will be a well-received addition.
The new LifeShield HD Video Doorbell will be available for purchase on their website in the second quarter of 2019.
