Avoid unexpected visitors with these top picks.
Does the sound of a ringing doorbell freak you out? Some smartphone-wielding millennials and Gen Zers refuse to answer the door because they're so used to texting upon arrival that the sound of a doorbell wells a panic within their chests.
Because your phone is already in your hand anyway, it's easier and less panic-inducing just to shoot a text, right? Besides, the doorbell could be broken — or even worse, you could be at the wrong property. Awkward.
Smart doorbells can protect against that jarring sudden sound with a push notification instead. Not only that, but they prevent the oftentimes unwelcome intrusions that typical doorbells provide, with built-in cameras that let you use your smartphone to see who's at the door before you answer.
All of our picks have microphones and speakers on board so you can talk to your visitors, even if you're away. They're water-resistant, detect motion, and can potentially record suspicious activity outside your home. Whatever your use case may be, and whether it rings true that a simple "ding-dong" sends a shiver down your spine, we help break down this new product category to help you find a new doorbell for your entryway.
