This morning we got a knock at the door at 7:00 am. Our little guy usually gets us up around that time but it was still very unusual. After scrambling for proper clothes and running to the door to see who it was, I wished I could have simply communicated to the guy via an audio/video doorbell. Turns out he and his crew were trimming trees around our home and requested we move our truck.

We use Skype and Facetime to chat with family and take business video calls all the time, so it’s only natural that we’d want face-to-face communication with someone at our front door. VTech makes this possible with their IS7121-2 audio and video doorbell, which is a first of its kind, two-in-one cordless answering system and video monitor that combines a versatile home phone with a digital camera doorbell that connects to your front door.

The doorbell camera will instantly send a photo to each handset, but you decide when to enable the microphone. Want to stream video of the person? You can do that too. It’s great for seeing who’s ringing the doorbell without being seen, which allows you to discretely protect your privacy and your home.

The video doorbell also has night vision, which automatically works when there isn’t enough light.

The VTech IS7121-2 also doubles as a two handset cordless phone with caller ID, call waiting and answering machine with up to 14 minutes of recording time as well as serving as a walkie-talkie so you can easily communicate with other members of your family throughout the home.
