- It's better than the Ring doorbell given the price,plus a constant set of surveillance eyes on your property.
You won't believe the deal or the featuresthat I have coming right up.
(bell dings) (bright music)I can see you.
Well, I can see my house, my property.
Great to be with you.
I can't see you, but thank you for seeing me,and I would love to mentionthat, if you've never seen me before,I find the biggest deals you'll see anywhere.
You might know me from your local NBC, ABC,or CBS TV stations or from the Amazon show that I host,but I am really excited because right here on YouTube,I unbox my favorite deals,and the Zmodo Smart Wi-Fi Doorbell is fantastic.
And I know many of you have your heart seton the Ring Doorbell or maybe even the SkyBell,which I've used and you've seen many videosof my property.
I actually own one of theseand I use this through the alarm.
But the SkyBell and the Ringhave very different limitationscompared to what you can score today for under 60 bucks.
Now again, the link to score this deal,just expand the video description box right under me.
There it is.
And I want to not only take you through the unboxing,but also how this doorbell is distinctly unique from Ring.
Let's start with the price.
Now I love Ring Doorbells,but the cheapest pricefor a Ring Doorbell's around 100 bucks.
This I found for under 60.
The doorbell that I found from Zmodohas eight gigabytes of built-in memoryto record 30-second video clips once motion is detected.
Ring only has cloud storagefor which you'll have to pay a monthly fee.
On top of that, the Zmodo gives you 12 hoursof free motion-based cloud video storage.
Ring doesn't provide any free cloud storage.
On the Ring Doorbells,you cannot pre-record a voice message.
That's the same for the SkyBell I have.
But on the Zmodo, well, you can pre-record a voice messageif you've got visitors, if you're on vacation.
If you're somewhere else like in the skyand someone rings your doorbell,if you're expecting a package,he or she will hear that pre-recorded messageso it sounds like you're there even when you're not.
Ring does not have this feature.
Let's unbox the Zmodo Smart Wi-Fi Doorbell.
It's actually a very large doorbell.
Look at that.
So this is the Zmodo Doorbelland I'm gonna compare this directly to a Ring Doorbellin a second.
They are easy to install.
These are hardwired doorbells,so you obviously need the hardwire circuitryrunning into a pre-existing doorbell.
You take that off and then you put these on.
I'll show you what the SkyBell looks likeand I like the SkyBell, already installed.
The Zmodo, which I have right here,so obviously that's not installed.
And then the Ring Video Doorbell.
I should mention the Ring Pro Video Doorbellis a $250 doorbell.
So yeah, you're getting some nicer packaging, for sure.
You're also getting an installation kit,which again, is not provided with the Zmodoso that's something to keep in mind.
So for the Zmodo,this brushed nickel type look,which would work with some houses, but not with all,does not have the plates that would go on topof the Ring Video Pro doorbell.
Now I did identify the limitations of the Ringin terms of the features.
Let's look at installation tools.
Right, so there's a big differencebetween a $60 product,or a product that's usually about 150 bucksdown to 60 and a product that retails for 250.
The size, different as well.
Some people like a larger doorbell.
This is a little bit more pronounced.
This is much smaller.
I'm gonna tell you why I like the size of the Zmodoa little bit better.
The Ring is less obtrusive, right?It's a very, very nice -they're actually about the same thin, thinness.
Well, maybe the Ring's a little bit more thin.
But I like people to knowthat there is a surveillance camera on my property.
The Ring's a little bit more discreetfrom further away, it looks like a doorbell.
From a little bit further awaythere is no mistaking the factthat you have a camera built into this.
So, it just depends.
The Ring is supposed to blend into a homeand it's not your primary surveillance equipment piece,awesome, I'd buy the Ring.
Money's no object, I'd buy the Ring.
But if you want not to pay for cloud storage,if you want to be able to greet your guests,the Zmodo is awesome, in particular,if you do not have any other surveillance cameras.
This just is really in your face.
You might like that, you might notbut, again, at under 60 bucksthis may be your better choice.
The Ring, though, no mistaking about ita great product and I actually happen to love the SkyBell.
I know there were some prior negative reviews tied to thisbut I really like this.
It's all about price and features.
In terms of the clarity of the HD Live video,I would say actually, believe it or not,the Zmodo, the SkyBell and the Ringare very comparable.
I'd say the Ring has a slight advantagein terms of night vision.
Maybe just a little biton one of the more high-end models.
The app, really good.
Actually I probably think the Ring appis the best of the best.
The SkyBell app works really well through alarm.
I like their app, a lot of people don't.
But the Zmodo, I mean they make some really cool items.
I actually reviewed the Zmodo Pivot a while ago.
That was the 360 degree systemthat doubles as a blue tooth speakerand an all-in-one home monitoring solution.
I was blown away by this.
And this is part of that same product linethat I now can easily advocate for.
And I should mention Zmodo,I don't know if I said that alreadybecause I can't remember what I say half the time.
Zmodo's not paying me to talk about them.
They don't know who I am.
So if you are interested in this,you may be able to grab thisat it's lowest recorded deal pricewhich at the time I'm recording this video is,let's see if it's still here,$59.
99 with free delivery.
That is awesome.
