The Audio Doorbell sends push alerts to your phone whenever it detects motion -- or whenever someone rings the buzzer.

It can also be hardwired to work with an existing doorbell chime.

The Arlo Chime, sold separately for $50, acts as your doorbell chime if you don't hardwire the Audio Doorbell.

Several Chimes can be purchased for larger homes to make sure you hear your doorbell wherever you are.

The Audio Doorbell works with Arlo security cameras, too. The idea is that you'd use the doorbell for two-way audio conversations and the camera to see who's at the door.
