Alarm.com launches Touchless Video Doorbell in US

Tagged with: | | |

Alarm.com, a US-based home automation company has developed a touchless that can ring without any physical contact, thereby reducing public health risks and making home visits and deliveries safer during COVID times.

The home automation company’s latest innovation, the Touchless Video Doorbell is claimed to use some of the most advanced video intelligence available to consumers for touch-free operation.

The Touchless Video Doorbell does not need a physical press of a doorbell button, but instead, the bell will chime when a person simply stands on a doormat placed at the front door at a safe distance. When a person stands on the mat, the device gets triggered, thereby chiming and sends a mobile alert to the homeowner.

The device comes with a built-in camera and a microphone that lets the homeowner interact with visitors using a mobile phone.

Alarm.com has used rapid and accurate person detection to activate the doorbell camera instead of using motion detection which is commonly used in other doorbell cameras. This kind of detection reduces unimportant interruptions, said Alarm.com.

 

Anne Ferguson – VP of marketing at Alarm.com said: “Protecting the health and safety of loved ones and our communities has never been more important.

“Particularly in the current environment, our front doors have become an even greater hotbed of activity. Our Touchless Video Doorbell helps homeowners and visitors alike maintain social distance and avoid encountering germs, bacteria and viruses that may exist on surfaces around the front door. Adding this touch-free solution to an Alarm.com-powered smart home security system is another way we can stay vigilant and protect one another.”

Additionally, the Touchless Video Doorbell can trigger other Alarm.com devices such as smart lights. The doorbell also avoids accidental chimes by differentiating people from animals, packages or other non-human objects.

The device is equipped with 150° vertical field of view, optimized portrait viewing, full HD resolution, HDR, infrared night vision and onboard heater for low temperature operation. Furthermore, the device has a  live video and saved clip viewing options which can be accessed on Alarm.com mobile app or website.

The Alarm.com Touchless Video Doorbell will be available through the company’s network of professional security service providers.
