alarmcom video door bell 2 1NEWS – has released the first commercially available video doorbell that rings without requiring any contact.  The Touchless Video Doorbell eliminates the need to physically press a doorbell button. Anyone coming to the door simply stands on a doormat to ring the chime.

When a person is detected, the doorbell immediately triggers the existing chime in the home, sends a mobile alert to the homeowner and starts recording a video clip. Homeowners can see and speak with visitors through the Touchless Video Doorbell’s live HD video and two-way audio instead of having to answer the door.

The Touchless Video Doorbell can automatically trigger other device activity through user-defined rules. For example, lights can turn on when the doorbell detects a person.

The device also features:

  • 150° vertical field of view that gives homeowners a full head-to-toe image of visitors and clear look at packages left on the doorstep
  • Optimized portrait viewing on mobile so there’s no need to rotate the mobile device
  • Full HD resolution, HDR, and infrared night vision
  • Onboard heater for low temperature operation
  • Live video and saved clip viewing using the mobile app or website

The Touchless Video Doorbell will be available through the company’s network of professional security service providers. Visit to find service providers in your area.

If the doormat gets separated from the porch… ? The news release is not clear on whether the camera does person detection and activates the doorbell sound in the home and alerts the owner’s phone, or whether a person stepping on the mat must be the activator.  If person detection happens via camera alone, the advantage of the doormat is unclear.

Pricing is estimated at $200.
