Such a doorbell camera also complements, replaces and/or expands conventional doorbell functions based on these processing and communication capabilities. The doorbell camera is mounted on or in proximity to a doorframe where a conventional doorbell may be mounted, and is electrically coupled to a power supply that may have been used to power the conventional doorbell. Specifically, the doorbell camera has one or more of a speaker, a microphone, a lens assembly, an image sensor, a waterproof device housing, a waterproof button assembly, light emitting diodes LEDs, infrared IR illuminators, a rechargeable battery and corresponding compensation circuit, an adjustable mounting plate, antennas and transceivers, a processor, and memory storing programs executed by the processor.

I also liked the Ring Stick Up, thanks to its pairing with the Echo Dot and its ability for motion zone customization, which comes in handy if your property has certain obstructions that could otherwise hinder its ability to monitor a space appropriately. Also added the EZViz CTQ2C for the impressive night vision range and magnetic bases for easy installation. I also included the Reolink C2 Pro for its rotational flexibility and 3x optical zooming capabilities. I thought the expandable and weather resistant design of the Blink XT System made it a versatile surveillance solution for both indoor and outdoor use. The Amcrest UltraHD is a good option for use in low light surroundings and for keeping video file sizes down to a minimum, thanks to the H. 265 compression technology.
