Arlo Audio Doorbell

Smart home security company Arlo is adding a smart doorbell and a separate chime accessory to its product lineup -- the Arlo Audio Doorbell and Chime.

The Arlo Audio Doorbell is battery-powered and doesn't include a built-in camera. Arlo instead expects customers to enlist one of its separate security cameras to see who's at your door. 

The company hasn't yet released pricing or availability for its smart doorbell.

Blink Video Doorbell

We haven't heard much about Blink's Video Doorbell since we saw it at CES. If you're already a Blink customer and have a Sync Module, the doorbell will set you back just $99 (roughly £75/AU$130). Otherwise, you'll have to spend $129 (about £95/AU$170) for both the doorbell and the module.

Amazon purchased security camera startup Blink in December 2017.

Nest Hello

Nest's Hello offers HD live streaming and motion alerts, as well as Person Alerts and optional Familiar Face Alerts (with a Nest Aware subscription).

While Person Alerts notify you when the camera thinks it sees a person, Familiar Face Alerts will tell you who it sees if it recognizes the person from a saved database of friends, family and other folks who regularly visit your home.

Olive & Dove RemoBell

Unlike most of the smart doorbells we've reviewed, the RemoBell is exclusively powered by six AA batteries. 

It's a fine buzzer, but I'd expect it to do more for $199, £155 or AU$265. Specifically, it doesn't currently work with any smart home partners.

Ring Video Doorbell

Ring's entry-level connected buzzer, the Video Doorbell is somewhat similar to the Video Doorbell 2. It costs $179, £140 or AU$235.

But instead of 1080p HD, you get 720p HD -- and you have to remove the doorbell's faceplate to charge it. With version 2.0, you simply have to remove the battery pack when it's time to charge.

This model will continue to sell, though, and you do have the option to hardwire it if you'd rather not deal with removing the entire doorbell to charge the battery.

Ring Video Doorbell 2

The $199 (£155, AU$299) Ring Video Doorbell 2 is a very versatile device. Not only does it offer live streaming, two-way talk and other expected features. This 1080p HD buzzer can either be hardwired or rely on a removable, rechargeable battery. 

It also works with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, IFTTT and Wink.

Ring Video Doorbell Pro

Ring's $249 (£195, AU$325) doorbell is a pricier DIY buzzer. But there's a big potential benefit -- this hardwire-only model is slimmer than most smart doorbells we've tested. That means it's way more likely to fit on that narrow doorframe where your existing wired buzzer is currently installed.

SkyBell HD Wi-Fi Video Doorbell

SkyBell's $199/£155/AU$265 HD Wi-Fi Video Doorbell has a unique circular design, as well as smart-home integrations with Amazon Alexa, IFTTT and Nest. 

This model also offers free 7-day cloud storage, one of the only smart buzzers I've tested to have such a feature.
