Do you have a SkyBell HD Video Doorbell? If yes, download this free app and start making your home safer by answering your front door from your favorite iOS® devices. This app is for the SkyBell HD version of the SkyBell Video Doorbell.

SkyBell is a Wi-Fi video doorbell with a video camera, microphone, speaker and motion sensor. When a visitor presses the button, SkyBell sends a live video feed to your mobile device so you can see, hear and speak to the person at your door whether you’re at home, at work or on the go – day or night, rain or shine.

SkyBell features a motion sensor to alert you when someone doesn’t press the button and a “Watch Live” feature that allows you to activate the live video directly from your app at any time—just like an IP camera.

SkyBell keeps you connected to those you love most and gives you additional home security and monitoring when you need it. SkyBell is redefining what home security can be and our goal is to make homes and neighborhoods safer, one front door at a time!

SkyBell features:
• HD quality video up to 1080p
• Motion sensor—alerts you even if the visitor doesn’t press the button
• “Watch Live”—activate the live video feed from the app
• Multiple users can access the video feed
• Full color night vision
• Works over Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G and LTE
• Full-time power—No need to recharge the battery
• Operates in extreme cold, rain and heat

*This app works exclusively with and requires the SkyBell HD video doorbell device.

No sleazy subscription “service“.

Geez, nickname nazis.

Favorite thing about the skybell is that there is no sleazy subscription “service” to view my own videos, so based on that alone this is the best doorbell camera available that I know of. Amazing to me that some people are dumb enough to pay infinite monthly fees for stuff like that, btw.

Would love to see them expand into similar offerings like garage cameras, porch- and carriage-light cameras, homekit compatibility, a roku channel or something so I can see who’s at the door on my tv, etc.

However, it is pretty cheesy that they lied about having a temperature sensor, and though they did honor their warranty on my first one which was defective, they told me that its replacement had no warranty at all, so I guess it’s just luck that the replacement is doing ok so far, otherwise it would’ve been a complete ripoff.

Overall a great product.


I have installed HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS of these. I have 4 at my house. They work about 90% of the time AS LONG AS YOU HAVE GOOD WIFI. Don’t complain if you have garbage WiFi on the other side of your house. Anyway, you need AC or DC power which is nice. Minimum 2mbps upload is really what works well. I’ve installed them with a .3mbps upload and it worked. The biggest issue people had was it not ringing inside their house. You need a GOOD functioning doorbell for it to work. If you don’t, then it won’t work like that. I’ve talked to reps at skybell and said they really need to add an in line chime between the skybell and the transformer to fix this issue. All things considered they’re great. Easy set up and pretty reliable.

4.0.0 Update Issues


The 4.0.0 update seems to have many issues. I almost always had great WiFi connection with my SkyBell HD, but now with this up date it’s always labeled as poor unless I leave the app open for a long period of time. This means that when some one does come to the door and pushes the button or activity is detected then you’ll get the notification but no way to connect or review that activity; as the activity feed doesn’t update until the next day. Far too late! Or if you need to view live or interact with someone on the other end you CANNOT! this is very frustrating as it worked almost every time before the update now this app and my SkyBell HD don’t provide much additional benefit above a normal doorbell. Please fix this ASAP!
