If you read our blog on a regular basis, you know that home intercoms systems are very popular to Home Controls customers. It’s great to be able to talk to people in different locations throughout your home, and even more amazing to communicate with people at the front door. A new technology that is really expanding this smart home category are wireless and smartphone-enabled front door intercoms – or more commonly referred to as video doorbells.
Our newest product in this category is the SmartBus Wi-Fi Enabled Video Doorbell. Our staff was so excited about these new video door intercoms that we were selling them before the device even made it onto our web store! We’re sure you will become just as excited.
The system is quite simple. When a visitor at your front door pushes the doorbell button on the SmartBus Wi-Fi Enabled Video Doorbell, the SmartBus immediately activates its built-in camera and also sends an alert to your smartphone or tablet through the free mobile app. You can then open the app to view who’s at your door and either answer or reject the call. When you choose to answer, you can talk with your visitor while watching them on-screen. The sleek aluminum doorbell has LEDs for night vision, giving you convenience around the clock.
- Doorbell button triggers camera and in-app video call
- Free mobile app for iOS and Android devices
- Any authorized user can remotely answer the call
- Manually view live video anytime you want

To support system expansion, the SmartBus mobile app manages unlimited SmartBus devices. Plus, you can give access to anyone you wish, so multiple members of your household can receive and answer calls, monitor anytime, record video/photos, etc.
Other features include:
Set Optional Motion-Activated Video Alerts: The SmartBus has a built-in motion sensor that you can turn on to receive video alerts when someone is at your door, even if they don’t ring the bell.
Monitor Your Home & Record Video/Photos: Anytime you’re viewing your doorstep through the app, whether through on-demand monitoring or a triggered video call, you have the option of recording the video and/or capturing a still photo.
Unlock Your Door Through the App: When connected to a wired electric door lock (sold separately), the SmartBus Doorbell allows you to remotely lock/unlock your door through the app.
Indoor Chime Gives You Traditional Doorbell Alerts: In addition to receiving in-app alerts, you can also hear traditional doorbell chimes inside your home with the included Wi-Fi chime module.
