There’s a big difference between tech products that provide fun experiences, and ones that truly change the way we live. The goal of the August Doorbell Cam is to completely reimagine the way we experience our homes, and change the paradigm around home access and control. The Doorbell Cam is beautiful, small and low-profile in comparison to other outdoor cameras. Made of anodized aluminum, it provides a quality look and feel, combined with a discreet and elegant interface. The device easily installs over your existing doorbell, hooking to existing wiring for power. The full 140-degree high quality camera and built-in speaker allows guests and owner to converse, and with the touch of a button on the phone screen, the owner can unlock their front door and watch their guest enter. This is an especially effective feature when dealing with 3rd party services such as deliveries, laundry pick ups, dog walkers or house cleaners - homeowners will never have to leave work early again or risk missing a delivery. With the August Doorbell Cam, everyone in the home is enabled to be informed, empowered and in control on a daily basis.
