August Doorbell Cam
Wi-Fi® enabled smart doorbell with audio and video (Silver)
Our take on the August Doorbell Cam by Crutchfield's Kramer Crane
See who's at your door, even when you're not home
See and talk to any visitor in real time. With the optional August Smart Lock, you can remotely open your door from your phone to let guests or deliveries in.
When's the last time you got excited about your doorbell? There's a reason to be enthusiastic now. August's Doorbell Cam is a feature-packed replacement for your current doorbell. It connects to your home's existing wiring and Wi-Fi® network, and communicates with your smartphone through the free August app for Apple® or Android™. The Doorbell Cam offers live, one-way video and two-way audio communication so you can both see and talk to anyone who's at your door, even if they don't ring the bell.
The Doorbell Cam replaces most standard doorbells, and gives you peace of mind by showing you who is at your door — especially when you aren't home. When the doorbell detects that someone is there it sends you an alert on your phone.
Unlock the full potential of the August Smart Lock
The Doorbell Cam works great as a standalone unit, but offers full functionality when paired with the companion August Smart Lock. It replaces the need for the August Connect, acting as the Wi-Fi bridge between the lock and your phone. Your phone relays its commands to the Doorbell Cam via your home Wi-Fi network. The doorbell then communicates with your Smart Lock via Bluetooth®. When you want to let a guest in, you can instantly unlock your door through the August app.
Expand your August smart home system
In addition to the Smart Lock, consider installing the August Smart Keypad in your doorway for secure, code-based entry into your home. It's perfect for letting the kids in without needing either a physical key or a smart device.

August Doorbell Cam Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
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 August 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.
