10. The doorbell housing 702 contains a camera module, an LED indicator, a processor and memory including programs executed by the processor. The doorbell camera 106 is electrically coupled to 1052 a remote chime 1006 via a bypass unit 1012 powered by a transformer 1010 that provides an input AC voltage. The remote chime 1006 is configured to ring 1054 in response to a user press on the doorbell button 1002. A supply monitoring signal is generated 1056 by the doorbell camera 106 based on the input AC voltage to indicate whether the input AC voltage is greater than a supply threshold. Based on a value of the supply monitoring signal, a user is notified by the doorbell camera 106 as to whether there is sufficient voltage to power the doorbell. In accordance with the supply monitoring signal, a message is presented by the doorbell camera 106 to a user of the doorbell camera 106 to indicate whether the input AC voltage is low with respect to the supply threshold. In some implementations, the message may include a visual message displayed by the LED indicator e. g. , a single LED light, a LED display ring formed around the doorbell button 1002 on a surface of the doorbell housing 708 according to one of a set of predetermined visual patterns input AC voltage. In some implementations, the message may include an audio message broadcast by the speaker of the doorbell camera 106.

The intrudersreturned the following evening and attempted to make entry again.
