A video door phone offers you peace of mind with increased security for the home or office. Knowing who it is on the other side of a door before you open it; is a smart way to protect a person from unwelcome guest.
It is a personal choice when shopping for a video door phone. What are your needs and life style? I personally like the ones that will allow me, when necessary, to take a picture of who is at the door. If I do not know them then I want a picture for future reference if needed.
I also travel so I like to be able to easily take the wireless video door phone with me to hotels and motels. Being able to see the person at my door, being able to talk to them and if needed take a picture of them before I open my hotel door is a God send.
If your door is exposed to the weather then purchase one with the waterproof function. This function is not necessary in apartment buildings, hotel rooms office buildings or homes where to door is secured from rain. If you have the option, get the waterproof function just in case you want to relocate your device at some point in time.
Night vision is a must. Look for a unit that has clear night vision even with no light. You will be so glad you have this feature. At night is when I depend on the video door phone the most and need extra surveillance. The technical term to look for is infrared lights.
The units that offer the lock/unlock feature is a must for the elderly, busy mothers, secretaries and the list goes on. This feature gives you freedom to allow someone access to your space without having to get up and go to the door. In busy work environments it saves the employees countless trips. The elderly and handicap users praise this feature highly.
It is not a big secret when I tell you that crime is up all over our nation. It is estimated that property crime occurs about every 3 seconds. Safeguarding your home or office with a video door phone lowers the risk of allowing a potential burglar in your home. They may use their first visit to your home just to survey what you have and the lay out of your house. They come back later to steal your prized possessions. When they see homes or offices with surveillance systems in place they tend to go elsewhere to comment their dastardly deeds. A video door phone will enhance your home security system. Having the ability to supervise any situation at your front door gives you the power of keeping unwanted people out and time to call the authorities if needed. It is better to be safe than sorry.
The big question is, who needs a video door phone? The answer is everyone. Everyone that is pro-active in protecting their family, loved ones, business associates and themselves from potential property loss, physical injury and emotional trauma will benefit from this extra security measure.
