So this is the video quality of your these dual cam video adorable wired at night, at no lights and the auto night vision is turned on, so it has it for infrared leds and also the bottom package. Lights are turned on, and this is what it looks like when im close to the doorbell, and this is what it looks like when im close to the door. So this is the video quality of beautys, dual cam video doorbell, the wired version, and this with my lights on and the other night vision is turned on. So this is what it looks like when im close to the doorbell – and this is what it looks like when im close to the door. We are going to test the motion, alert notification, speed of yuffies, dual cam, video doorbell, the wired version and im on my lte connection, and it is 12 37, so lets check it out, Music that quick all right. So i got that one and i have two notifications. Actually i have the one with a oh zoomed in snapshot right there and when i click on it it should go to the recorded event cool pretty fast.
It is 12 30, just went to 12 38, so its been less than a minute. So lets see what the notification cool off for the ufe dual cam video doorbell and that quick still durable push to notification. Speed, Music! There you go, you get, i didnt get any uh audio on my phone and click on that it should load up pretty quick cool and didnt, hear it, but theres a notification. Uh! Yes, can i help you uh? Yes, can i help you its live pastor here? Uh, sorry hes not here right now. Ah you want to leave a message. Uh, sorry hes, not here right now, you want to leave a message. No thanks! All right! Thank you is live pastor here. No thanks porch pirate test and see how fast the doorbell can pick us up and probably give us a notification. Excuse me help you and thats, pretty quick cool all right. So this time, im gon na drop off this package in a normal place, which will be uh uh near the door so lets see if im gon na get a. I got a notification already right there. Oh yeah, i got a package alert cool and look at that. You will see. Thats cool package was delivered and thats pretty quick with amazon echo devices you can set it so that it will make an announcement or act as a chime. Whenever somebody pushes the doorbell Music, someone is at the dual doorbell wired.
There is no auto live view, but you can always say: show dual doorbell wired, okay, cool with google devices. You will not be able to set it as a chime or make an announcement uh when somebody pushes the doorbell at this time, but you can always stream the live view stream. Dual doorbell wired in google hub sure streaming, the dual doorbell wired on google hub. We go cool, so what do you think im pretty happy that uf improved its notification speed – and this is one thing i complained about on their battery version. Video quality is on par with uvs wired or plug in cameras, not a lot of artifacting like on their battery powered ones. Motion detection is pretty accurate and reliable too. No false notifications during my testing – and this is set to human detection only and i dont even have to set motion zones package detection is better too, and they have improved and is faster in getting the audio response. When somebody is detected when there is a package at your door, it is not 100 reliable yet, and you have to be careful what message you are going to play, because even if the person has no plans on stealing your package when motion is detected, it will Play the message that you set the can kind of help. Your response is probably the most appropriate in all situations, a couple bugs that i noticed in their latest firmware im, not getting the tone or chime in my phone when somebody pushes the doorbell.
I do get the motion tones, but not the doorbell presses im, pretty sure it will be fixed pretty soon. Also, the audio on my phone during two way talk is on the low side. The recordings will only have the adorable side of the conversation. Also, this doorbell will not chime your existing doorbell chime. Lastly, and this might be a deal breaker on some of you – local storage, which is good, but it is in the doorbell itself. So if somebody vandalizes or steals the doorbell, your footage is gone. It is encrypted, though, and they will not be able to view it, but especially for a camera that is just within reach. I recommend setting up for ufs cloud storage to have a backup overall. This is a pretty good upgrade from ufs wired, video doorbell, and actually this is better than any of their battery powered doorbells just with the 3 second pre recording and better video quality. Overall, this doorbell is going to stay in my front door for now and ill be comparing this with yuffies other doorbells.
