Your doorbells and door handles of the house, are the most interactive things very prior for the outsiders to touch. Disinfecting your home could never be enough until or unless you cut off the frequent contact of visitors to doorbells and intercoms. Following this, as we can see, the virus is not going to leave us alone to live like we used to before its arrival. In this way, we ought to adopt the latest and innovative ways or techniques to spend our lives to minimize the risk of being infected.
Subsequently, among the coolest gadgets and products at the virtual conference of CES 2021, we have come across a touchless video doorbell by Alarm.com. The most appropriate device at this time when we are struggling to save our loved ones from the virus.
Moreover, if you are into smart home security systems and accessories or devices with AI, this touchless doorbell suffices you better. Whether the condition is going to get worse or get better about the virus in the coming days is totally another debate. But one thing is pretty clear, that we have spent more than one year with this virus and how long we have to deal with it is still a question without any answer. Therefore taking into account the past and current situation, this touchless video doorbell is a smart way to keep the virus away.

The coolest feature we all get attracted to, is the touchless ring of the bell. This doorbell has fully cut the need of making contact to the bell. The visitor has to stand on the mat placed at a distance, since there are no sensors, the camera is only responsible to detect the presence of the person and ring the bell at the smartphone of the user. The time period between the visitor standing and the notifying of the person to the owner of the property is too less, alike the time we take to touch the bell without delaying.
Its 150 degree view of the field gives a close look of the visitor from head to toe in FHD resolution which can be saved in HDR form too on the Alarm.com mobile App. The Infrared light night vision produces clear pictures and also is able to differentiate between the non living things, animals and human beings. Thus prevent you from the unwanted chimes and fall calls like we often get confused by many of the video doorbells.
Furthermore, the app consists of an option to involve other smart devices at home. For instance, turning on the lights at night if you have a visitor helps a lot. Although, which more of the smart home devices can be interconnected is still not very much defined at the conference.
Other than this, the two way microphone allows the user to talk without opening up the door. There is a built-in heater in the doorbell, which keeps the bell workable under extremely cold weather conditions.
The nutshell is, this touchless video doorbell is pretty much the same as the smart home video doorbells we have already seen so many times, except the non touch feature which is extremely helpful for the prevention from getting germs or viruses. The price is expected to be under $200 and its official launching is soon expected in 2021.
