Overview: The August Doorbell Cam lets you see and speak with visitors
at your door from virtually anywhere. It replaces your existing analog doorbell
and includes a high-definition camera to let you see who's at your front door.
The Doorbell Cam works through the August Home app for iOS and Android. The
August Doorbell Cam requires that you have an Internet connection and an
802.11b/g/n (2.4 GHz or 5 GHz) Wi-Fi Network.
Notifications: The August Doorbell Cam can send an instant
notification to your smartphone when it detects motion in front of your door, or
when the doorbell button is pressed. The built-in one-way HD camera lets you see
who is there, and you can speak to them through the two-way audio system from
anywhere, even if you're not at home.
Integration with August Smart Lock: The Doorbell Cam works with other
August products to provide more features and security. The
Smart Lock lets you use your smartphone to remotely lock and unlock the door
for visitors, service providers, or allow delivery drivers to leave your package
inside, rather than outside. Smart Lock can also provide real-time status of
your door lock, so you can know for sure if your door is locked.
Doorbell Compatibility: The Doorbell Cam replaces your existing, wired
doorbell with an analog chime. (It is not compatible with digital chimes.) Most
standard doorbells are powered by electrical wires. Doorbell Cam requires
between 16 and 24 volts of electricity. You will need about 3" of clearance
around your current doorbell in order to install the Doorbell Cam.
Installation: The August Doorbell Cam should be mounted in a way that
gives you the best view of visitors at your door. The unit can be mounted on
most any surface: brick, stucco, wood, siding, concrete, etc. An angled mounting
wedge is included for mounting locations that are less than ideal. The Doorbell
Cam connects with only two wires. Once installed, you must set up the Doorbell
Cam with your Wi-Fi network router and the August app.
