This means your doorbell needs 12 to 36 volts of AC electricity to run properly. If your home doesn't meet these requirements, you or an electrician may need to install a new doorbell transformer. While we found battery powered units such as RemoBell quicker to install, doorbells like the Ring Video Doorbell 2 that also connect to your existing doorbell wiring are superior in almost every way. However, batteries mean units are much larger than a traditional doorbell button. In contrast, doorbells that only use a hardwired connection, like the Nest Hello and Ring Video Doorbell Pro, are slimmer and usually look nicer. ChimesAlthough video doorbells replace the button on your doorbell, some still need the chime already installed in your home. There are two types of doorbell chimes on the market: mechanical and digital. A Ring spokesperson said the main difference is that "Mechanical doorbells make your generic "ding dong" sound, whereas a digital doorbell has a speaker, and can make various sounds, including playing MP3’s and pre recorded sounds. Having one chime or the other does not affect doorbell performance, so it’s ultimately user preference. "According to our research, most smart doorbells work best with mechanical chimes, though many companies sell an adapter or a have list of compatible digital chimes. Likewise, some companies, such as Ring, sell a wireless chime add on that pairs with your doorbell camera.

Alternatively, in some situations, the ALS assembly 714 determines that the amount of light entering the lens assembly 702 is not greater than the threshold illumination level, and the doorbell camera 106 enables a night mode in which the IR illuminators are optionally turned on to illuminate the field of view of the doorbell camera 106. In some implementations, two distinct threshold illumination levels are applied to enable a first type of switching from the daytime mode to the night mode and a second type of switching from the night node to the daytime mode. Thus, use of the ALS assembly 714 can be used to cause switching between the daytime and night modes and enable/disable the IR illuminators in an efficient manner. The doorbell camera 106 may further include a microphone and a speaker. In some implementations, the front cover plate 708 includes a microphone aperture 716 to allow sound signals to reach the microphone concealed within the doorbell camera 106. In some implementations, the device housing 702 includes a plurality of speaker openings 718 at its bottom rim surface. When the doorbell camera 106 is mounted onto a wall or doorframe surface, the speaker holes 718 are not visible from a gaze of a visitor approaching or standing near the surface, while still being able to broadcast audio messages to the visitor. In embodiments where the doorbell camera 106 includes both the microphone and the speaker, a remote user may review live video streams captured by the camera module of the doorbell camera 106, and have a conversation in real time with the visitor. In some implementations, both the microphone and the speaker of the doorbell camera 106 adopt waterproof features to deter water permeation into the electronic components within the device housing 702 and cause irreversible damages to the electronic components. Specifically, the waterproof features may be integrated at the openings 716 and 718 to deter water permeation such as from a jet or stream of water impinging on at least one of the openings 716 and 718. In an example, the microphone may be disposed inside the device housing 102, and include a sound input region offset from the microphone aperture 716.
