Nortek Unveils Smart Doorbell Camera
Nortek Security & Control has debuted the new GoControl Smart Doorbell Camera available exclusively to professional security dealers and smart-home installers.
The new GoControl Smart Doorbell Camera is a Wi-Fi enabled video doorbell with two-way audio to allow homeowners to see who is at the door, and converse with the caller as well. Equipped with a 720p HD camera and a 180-degree wide-angle lens, the GoControl Doorbell Camera easily captures video even when mounted off to the side of the door. The connected video doorbell also decouples audio/video information and uses low latency SIP technology for near real-time two-way audio performance.
The GoControl Smart Doorbell Camera is IP65 weather rated with hermetically-sealed wire connections to eliminate service calls due to dust, rain, sleet, and snow. As a retrofit solution designed to replace existing or outdated doorbell systems, the GoControl Smart Doorbell Camera is a simple, two-wire installation for dealers and integrators that draws power from same transformer as the previous doorbell, and fits cleanly over an old doorbell to cover pre-existing holes or discoloration footprints.
Once installed, homeowners can receive notifications from the device on their iOS or Android smartphone or tablet when someone rings the bell, with the added benefit of communicating with them via clear, two-way audio. Homeowners can also access their doorbell camera video feed on demand from their app and in doing so, record video directly to their phone or take a snapshot. Six powerful IR LEDS provide superior night vision for high-quality video up to 15 feet away even in low-light applications.
