LifeShield Adds a Video Doorbell to its DIY Home Security Line

LifeShield, the do-it-yourself home security company owned by industry leader ADT, just added a new product to its lineup of smart home security devices. The new HD Video Doorbell gives LifeShield customers a new way to keep an eye on their front door and it should help the company hold its own against increasingly well-known competitors in the DIY space. 

LifeShield’s Video Doorbell Specs & Features

The LifeShield doorbell sports all of the specs and features you’d expect from a video doorbell in 2019:

  • 1080 HD video resolution
  • 170º viewing angle
  • Wi-Fi connection (though some wiring is required during installation)
  • Ability to live stream your video feed to your phone or laptop
  • Customizable mobile alerts
  • 2-way audio for speaking to visitors remotely
  • Motion detection with people detection and customizable zone and sensitivity settings, to minimize false alarms
  • Night vision
  • Amazon Alexa compatibility 

What about cost? The price at launch is $199.99, which is on the higher end of the spectrum relative to other top video doorbells. Note that this may be a special introductory price, since Lifeshield’s website lists the MSRP at $279.99. Discounted bundled pricing is also available – you’ll need to build your own LifeShield security set or purchase an 8-piece system
