Abode Video Doorbell

Abode announced the addition of two new smart home and security solutions – the Abode Wireless Video Doorbell and Abode Color Bulbs.

Abode Wireless Video Doorbell

The new video solution from Abode joins the Abode Cam 2 and includes many of the same features. The Abode Wireless Video Doorbell is a battery-powered doorbell camera featuring a simple, wire-free installation process. The compact, Wi-Fi enabled, HD 2K video doorbell camera features an IP65-rated weatherproof housing and mounts directly and securely to the door via the included, lockable installation bracket.

Once mounted, the Abode video doorbell can be leveraged for live-view and two-way communication with anyone at the door and has a push-button for standard arrival notification. When upgraded with an Abode Standard or Pro plan, the wireless video doorbell is capable of recording video clips to the cloud if motion or a person is detected, or record a short video clip when the doorbell is pushed.

The Abode Wireless Video Doorbell will synchronize with the companion Abode Chime. The doorbell camera and chime operate, in tandem, to create a dedicated wireless network connection for direct device-to-device communication. This mitigates connectivity issues and reduces interference caused by other wireless devices, thus ensuring more reliable video performance.

Designed to operate in extremely-low light conditions, the Abode Wireless Video Doorbell includes a built-in Starlight sensor that enables full-colour night vision capabilities. Beyond standard motion detection, the doorbell camera supports Abode Smart Detect, an advanced video performance specification which notifies users if a person is detected. Package and pet detection will also be supported in future updates.

Abode Color Bulbs

The Abode Color Bulbs offer full-colour RGB smart lighting for the Abode home. Users can deploy and control the Abode Color Bulbs with no hub required.

The 800 lumens, Wi-Fi enabled smart bulbs can be set up in minutes and only require a smartphone running the Abode app. A Bluetooth LE connection between the bulb and a smartphone enables reliable pairing and set up. From there, operation is handled via Wi-Fi and controlled using a smartphone.

The full-colour RGB bulbs are dimmable, feature a 90+ colour rendering index, and have a wide colour index range that can be tuned from warm white [1800K] to cool daylight [6500K] to unlock personalization and customization when it comes to lighting within the smart home.
