The SkyBell HD WiFi Video Doorbell Review

SkyBell HD WiFi Video Doorbell Product Image

A very interesting model, that’s for sure. Judging by my first impressions, the company behind the product seems to be going for the concealed version of surveillance.

This belief is only further exacerbated when you look at the sleek and innocuous design; One would have to be specifically looking for it in order to really become aware of the camera’s existence.

That’s all well and good, but besides the concealed exterior, what else does it bring to the table?

Let’s find out!


  • 1080 High Definition Camera

SkyBell HD WiFi Video Doorbell Mobile ApplicationA notch above the competition. Many companies boast their camera’s prowess by claiming it to be ‘fully HD’ but when you take a closer look at it, you find yourself baffled at the stretched way this term is being (a)used.

  • Wi-Fi Connectivity Enabled

Whether outside your house or country, so long you have a strong internet connection, you’ll never be left behind on all the happenings transpiring in front of your home.

  • Motion Sensor

Don’t let a small rodent spoil your sense of security, as this camera tells things apart better than any model I’ve seen so far.

Coupled with the HD camera mentioned before, nothing escapes the all-seeing eye!

  • Control Everything From The Mobile App

Whether your wish is to adjust the video quality, or you are concerned that the setting of your motion sensor is set too high, simply pull out your phone and tinker with the specifics in one fell swoop!

The Advantages

  • Powerful Zoom Never Lets You Down

SkyBell HD WiFi Video Doorbell InstalledThe biggest concern with peephole cameras, besides their video and sound quality, was always on making the wrong decision when I have to choose between letting someone in or keeping them out.

A innocent looking lady holding a bag of cookies in one hand, while swaying back-and-forth with her other hand, might have a hidden weapon she’s trying to conceal.

That is why the upgraded 5x zoom option came in as a life safer; If I wasn’t sure, the camera would always come to the rescue!

  • 24-Hour Surveillance And Control

Nothing like having a peephole camera that you can’t control whenever you please.

Most models don’t let you jump in ‘live’ to the action, but this is where this product got its biggest strength:

Simply navigate to the live feed, click it, and you’ll be able to extort presence on the outside, without ever coming close to the potential dangers that might lie ahead.

  • Adjust The Motion Sensor At Will

Another huge problem with lower-quality models, they’ll send hundreds of notifications when they see something moving on the streets.

While it could be a potential robber, it is a lot more likely that it is a small critter.

Being able to choose at what level the motion sensor will work (from low to high detection), helps you keep things at a security level most tailored to your situation.

The Disadvantages

  • You’ll Have To Make A Few Extra Purchases

While many companies offer many peaks and add-ons, just to get you to buy their product, SkyBell decided to leave the promotional affairs behind and simply offer quality.

Be it as it may, I was a bit disappointed that I had to buy a wedge mount on my own, as it was necessary for the type of property in my ownership.


I would definitely go for this model.

The additional purchases I had made accounted for less than a tenner, which is a scoffable amount.

Furthermore, the quality of the camera, the clearness of the sound and the amount of control given to me were too good to pass on!
