Since the View buzzer is battery-powered, your purchase includes a plug-in chime accessory.

The View sends push alerts when it detects motion -- or when someone rings the bell.

August's buzzer works with Alexa and Google Assistant.

This doorbell has interchangeable faceplates with different color finishes, sold separately. The black finish is pictured here.
