Weather/ReliabilityMy SkyBell HD has been through the rainy season and I can tell you now that the water had no effect on my device, seems great no matter what the weather was. Occasionally a very windy day will trigger the motion on the SkyBell if the tree in front of my camera is really moving, but it is unusual. Motion DetectionRegarding motion detection I have many comments on this but I will try to keep it on point. I have reached out to SkyBell a couple times on this for assistance and they have been awesome to explain how the motion detection works and why I have experienced certain things happening. My SkyBell device sits in a location that will not be able to see the person until they are practically right on top of it which makes things very tricky for motion detection compared to a standard porch where it can see someone approaching. The SkyBell works by detecting motion the first time, and then if it detects a second trip of the motion within X number of seconds it triggers the alert. Therefore, my front porch has the issue of people only being on my porch for a matter of seconds and being gone. Originally when I got the device I was only capturing anyone walking near it in a slow fashion and taking their time, however if someone was being fast such as the UPS man, it would often be triggered right at the time the person was leaving and I would just see someone exiting the frame. Since I started using the device in December, they have added “Motion Sensitivity” to the app low, medium, high and this has helped, however I still am hoping for being able to customize the amount of time between activities to warrant triggering a motion activity. I have been told this might be coming soon, fingers crossed!I understand SkyBell not wanting to drive people nuts with motion alerts, and the fact my front porch is not the usual case for the average customer has caused me to be understanding and have to admit they have been great about updating the app and responding to questions. Overall I feel like the motion detection is almost perfect, is a lot better than day 1 for sure, and I am rooting for them to get it to be a 10/10 soon!Also to clarify, when motion detection happens, it stores it automatically in the cloud for FREE and you can go play it back later!Cloud StorageLoving the cloud storage for FREE, it captures Button Presses, Motion Detection, On Demand When you watch it live on your own whim, and 3rd party triggers such as IFTTT or Alexa Echo.

security cameras and alarms

The one issue with this otherwise simple way to shop is this: rather than you personally bringing your purchases home, UPS, FedEx, or another delivery company does it for you. And the packages on your porch can pile up quickly around this time of year, which is a rather enticing sight for package thieves. Here are ways to use your home automated system to prevent package theft this holiday season. Activate perimeter motion sensor alarms Activate perimeter motion sensor alarms around your property, both when you’re at home and when you aren’t. Just because you’re there doesn’t mean you’re monitoring the porch, aware of every package that arrives—and every thief that takes an interest. Perimeter alarms will notify you each time anyone enters your property. So if it’s UPS, you can grab… Read moreThe weather outside may be frightful to you, but it could be a welcome sight to burglars who take advantage of winter conditions to break into homes. While you’re busy keeping your pipes from freezing and scraping ice from your car’s windshield, burglars are busy planning their entry into your home. It can be hard to monitor your property’s security when you’re worried about all the other maintenance winter weather brings. Here is how winter weather affects your safety and security systems.
