5 BEST DOORBELL CAMERAS 2022
Without being alarmist, the start of this year has been rife with burglaries and although a smart doorbell might not stop a house being robbed by the most determined cockroach, as a deterrent and a possible evidence builder ( and I speak from personal experience ) it does help. Most people now are familiar with a smart doorbell camera , but what’s best and what’s to look out for in 2022. Our Smart choice Security guide on the best Smart Doorbell Camera UK will help you choose.
Eufy video doorbell 2k from £170.00
A Which best buy, and worthy of the merit due to it’s high quality resolution and ease of use. This slim doorbell camera UK uses a hub to store video images and chime. It Has night vision and 2 way conversation and “Next Level” smart image detection. Due to the fact you do not need a subscription to save the footage this doorbell is our number one choice and has proved a reliable product.
Ring Doorbell V4 or V3 From £169.00
This Wireless doorbell camera is still the daddy !
Both are available and almost identical. What’s the difference ? Glad you asked, it’s all about the pre roll, a battery saving technique which captures 4 seconds of footage when movement is spotted, and saving it to the cloud along side notifying your phone. A great idea ! Ring 4 pre roll is in colour, Ring V3 is B/W and less functional at low light. We reckon, the smart money is to try bag yourself a Ring doorbell camera V3 at a cheaper price.
Tuya home life doorbell from£104.00
A budget bell with no pre roll and adequate sensors makes it on this list due to no subscriptions needed, as there is a sd card inside this doorbell ( local storage ) it does have a cloud option if needed, and it can be integrated to the Tuya life app which has cameras, blinds and full house automation sorted. Is it as effective as the others on this list ? No but the chip is faster than number 5 on the list as it’s almost visually identical.
