Doorbells have come a long way, baby. In fact, the latest models have virtually rendered knock-knock jokes obsolete by answering the question “Who’s there?” before it’s asked – even if you’re not home! More homeowners are turning to video doorbells because of their ease, convenience and safety. But with so many video doorbells on the market and new ones appearing every day, how do you know which one is best for you? Here are our favorite video doorbells.
This smart, compact model sets the standard for video doorbells. We appreciated the simplified installation, and it’s appropriate for every doorway from private homes to dorm rooms. Adjustable knock and motion detection, two-way talk and Alexa-compatibility are just a few of the reasons the Peephole Cam out-performs its competition. It even includes theft protection so in the event that it’s stolen, Ring will replace it for free.

Meanwhile, customizable motion detection zones mean you’ll receive only the alerts you want and need. We were also fans of the seamless installation and setup process; in just 30 minutes, you can be up and running. You can even maximize curb appeal thanks to the choice of two interchangeable faceplates: black or silver.
