The new Doorbell Cam Pro includes an integrated flood light for color night-time video, which can also be motion triggered to scare away would-be thieves. In addition to the integrated flood light, Doorbell Cam Pro includes a new feature called HindSight. HindSight captures video before people approach, even if they don’t press the doorbell. This ensures that the recording includes the entire motion event, rather than seeing a person walking away, for example. August Video Recording lets users replay, download and share recordings of activity at their door – visitors who ring the doorbell and any motion or missed visitor – all from the August app. The Doorbell Cam Pro features improved video quality for crisper video recording, especially for motion events.
“With the Doorbell Cam Pro we’ve added powerful new features that let consumers control and monitor their door from anywhere. Whether they are having packages delivered safely inside their home or using the Doorbell Cam Pro as a security device,” said Jason Johnson, CEO of August Home. “With its integrated flood light, the Doorbell Cam Pro now delivers crisp, full color HD video at night rather than blurry grayscale video so you can truly see what’s happening at your door. And our HindSight feature ensures you are capturing a complete video so you don’t miss a moment.”
The Doorbell Cam operates as a Bluetooth low energy (BLE) Wi-Fi bridge giving users the ability to securely unlock/lock their door to let visitors in remotely. The August Smart Lock Pro and August Smart Lock integrate with the August Doorbell Cam so that users can see and speak with visitors and let them in from a single app screen. The new Doorbell Cam Pro also includes a USB dock for easy set-up prior to installation and mounting.
