      Doesnt work

      Comments about DoorBot The Doorbell for Smartphones, Brushed Aluminum:

      I bought this when it first came out and it actually worked pretty good. A short while later I bought a more expensive router that can keep up with all the wifi devices in the house and thats when it stopped. Video and audio are horrible. Disconnects from wifi and after setting it back up again it disconnects after maybe an hour. Once its disconnected it does no good. App needs work and customer service, although prompt, just keeps telling you the same thing everytime like its going to fix the problem even though the last 6 times it didnt work. Dont spend your money on it. Maybe in a year or two when the bugs are worked out it will be better.

      It doesn't work well, and they won't take it back after 30 days, which is too short an evaluation period.

      Not happy at all.

      Comments about DoorBot The Doorbell for Smartphones, Brushed Aluminum:

      I wanted this to work, I really did....I've followed it since seeing it on Shark Tank and finally purchased it, even after reading many 2 star reviews...

      I can put up with the Delayed audio, but the picture constantly freezes up.

      Customer service was excellent, but I couldn't get it to stop freezing up...

      Hopefully there will be a DoorBot II in the future, with all the bugs fixed...

      Absolute an item that was needed that no one before could develop. This product serves a very useful purpose allowing me to screen whosoever comes to my door. The range is superb as I can now do my gardening at the back and still know when someone is out front. I recommend this to anyone who wants to have a view to anyone that comes to your door without running there every time the door rings.

      Garbage

      By Guy

      from NYC

      This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

      Comments about DoorBot The Doorbell for Smartphones, Brushed Aluminum:

      I don't think anything was tested through.

      Let's start with the app itself. During setup the 'next' button is behind the keyboard while there's plenty of room to bring it up and after setup you're just kind of left on the settings screen with no instructions on what to do next. Also, the iPad versions splash screen is upside down.

      As for the device itself, it is not usable at all. The ding dong out the speaker is a bit too loud and can only be heard outside. Only the person ringing the bell and neighbors hear it because it usually takes over a minute to notify your phone and even when it does the video and audio are horrible. Let's be clear about what happens when someone is standing outside waiting for a minute for someone to respond. They're either ringing the bell again which does nothing at all, knocking, or just leaving. What I really don't understand is how this thing can't even send a clear snapshot of the person at the door so that you can accept or decline and then maybe having video problems. This can't even send a proper image notification.

      What about battery life? If it's not hard wired, you have to remove the DoorBot and charge it over night but don't worry, that's only if a thief doesn't figure out that it's only one screw to remove it from the wall. I'm assuming DoorBot will limit theft by marking the serial number stolen and then taking pictures of everything it sees.

      DropCam already does video with two-way audio so the technology is out there. The worst thing about DoorBot is there's no support at all.
