Should I shop on Prime Day or wait until Black Friday?
If you’re looking for a new smart doorbell, waiting until Black Friday (and Cyber Monday) won’t do you any good. We don’t anticipate that prices will vary much on Black Friday compared to Prime Day. You’ll also see large shipping delays if you shop on Black Friday because unlike Prime Day, the deals are not exclusive to Prime members. The heavy demand during Black Friday season might also drive the doorbell you want out of stock and so you’ll lose your chance to get your holiday shopping done in time. Take advantage of these Prime Day smart doorbell deals now so you can get the gadget you want, at the price you want, before it runs out of stock.
Are any Prime Day smart doorbell deals too good to be true?
We expect to see a lot of smart doorbells going on sale on Prime Day. When buying your new smart doorbell make sure to do a little research in advance so you know what kind of product you’re looking out for. Check reviews, features, ratings, and compare retail prices all beforehand so when Prime Day rolls around you know exactly what you want. Also, be cautious of products that are very heavily discounted. If you think a deal seems suspicious — it probably is. Stick to the brands you know and have researched prior to the event — it’ll save you a lot of disappointment.
How to choose a smart doorbell
A couple of questions to keep in mind when choosing a smart doorbell: Does your doorbell have night-vision? Does it support wide-angle recording? Is there inbuilt motion detection? Do I have a live stream of my front door at all times? These simple questions can really help you decide if your smart doorbell is giving you everything that you’re paying for.
Another important aspect that you need to look at is whether your smart assistant is compatible with your new doorbell. While most devices work with Alexa and Google Assistant, certain products like Ring Doorbells, for example, don’t function with the Apple HomeKit. You’ll also want to keep in mind the video resolution of your doorbell. While almost every smart doorbell has video features, not all of them are as clear during every situation. High-definition night vision and high-resolution day vision are two things you need to keep in mind. You also want to check the effectiveness of the motion detection software. Some doorbells have motion detection up to 30 feet away and some advanced doorbells can even let you know the difference between people, pets, and environmental factors entering the detection zone.
The final thing we want to mention is the ease of installation. You want to make sure that whichever doorbell you choose works for your house. Certain smart doorbells require a prebuilt doorbell mechanism so if you’ve never had a doorbell and are not sure if you have the right wiring, go with a battery-operated one to be safe. We’ll be rounding up all the best Prime Day smart doorbell deals right here, so hopefully, you’ll be able to find one that works just right for you.
