      After my purchase of the doorbot I took it home set it up on my pc which does not get notifications so I also synced it with my iPhone which get almost immediate notifications crystal clear video and audio the first person to ring my doorbot was the delivery man who became interested after I explained exactly what it is. Thanks doorbot for making home feel safer for an affordable price.

      Unfortuantely, this item is incapable of actually doing what it says it should.

      For me, my doorbell is exactly 17 feet from my wireless router, a router that streams full motion high def video from Amazon to my smart TV (via the great hard disk in the sky). And, I get full strength wifi signal at the doorbell location on laptop/iphon/ipad. So it ain't my wireless, it's the doorbot.

      To say the video, when it works, is choppy would be generous. Mostly fuzz and blanks and blurs, with occasional snapshots of the person.

      If that weren't bad enough, the audio sometimes works, and sometimes doesn't. And when it doesn't, you don't know it's not working, so you're shouting into the phone (while holding down the talk icon) "CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?????" Then you have to hang up to reset it.

      But now it's even worse, because when you hang it up, the doorbell "hangs" in the connected mode for well over a minute, so they are unable to ring it again. Not that they would; they'd be long gone after ringing a doorbell, waiting several minutes with no sound and no one coming to the door, and the inability to ring it again.

      Honestly, these all need to be recalled and taken back to engineering. The idea is totally awesome, and if it actually worked, I'd love it. But it's seriously worse than a regular doorbell. Just awful.

      Discontinued mode.

      Comments about DoorBot The Doorbell for Smartphones, Brushed Aluminum:

      This purchase was VERY disappointing. Fortunately we went online to learn if there were firmware updates or expanded installation instructions. We learned that this model has been replaced with a new version.

      Additionally, the user community reports on this item is by "DoorBot" and because of not providing the features or function shown on the packaging, the company has changed it's name to "Ring." It is the same company with only a name change. Reports of the new model are that the new model also lists features and functions that have not been delivered by Ring.

      I would advise anyone contemplating purchase of either of these devices check very thoroughly with independent Home Automation review and support web sites before wasting your time.

      Easy to set up, but very unreliable

      Comments about DoorBot The Doorbell for Smartphones, Brushed Aluminum:

      I was excited to get this product out of the box. It was very easy to get set up. The camera did not preform well at all. On the times that it detected that someone had pressed the button, and sent a signal to my iPhone, it had static and lost a connection. The company name had changed online. I hope whatever needs fixed gets done before the company sells too many of them. A thing like this might bring a company down. I must tell you that I did not contact the company. Maybe I should have, but you know how it is when you pay the amount that you have to pay for this type of technology, you do expect it to work the first time and every time. I was not impressed.
      Thank you.

      Comments about DoorBot The Doorbell for Smartphones, Brushed Aluminum:

      The doorbot is great i love it! The setup was really easy on my HTC one S. Once I did the full setup I didn't receive any calls to my phone from the app it'self but I got in touch with there help desk and they were able to get my Android phone receiving the push notifications! Thank you doorbot brilliant idea!
