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!

A Worthy Update from the Original Skybell
Skybell HD works significantly better for me than the original product. I am using motion detection with this product where I had to disable it on the original. The video streaming protocol seems to be not very fault tolerant of interfering traffic on the same wifi channel. My router automatically chose channel 1 but, on investigation, I found that at the location of my Skybell I could receive wifi traffic from 3 neighbors on that channel. Switching my router to ch 2 improved my streaming failure rate from 1 out of 3 attempts failing to 1 out of 30 attempts failing. The HD app is a significant improvement from the classic app. I like that video streaming is now launched directly from a press of the ring notification rather than just opening the app and having to press a button. The Dec 21 update improved live view sync significantly. Love the new addition of an approximate 2 sec video buffer so we can view video from 2 sec before the motion detect activates!
SkyBell HD firmware improvement
This product just got better. The company just released a firmware update for the SkyBell HD that reduces the video recording delays when you activate the motion detection feature. Now the product detects and records people walking up to your door.
Prior to the update, motion detection worked great but the video recordings were delayed so you would only see a person walking away. At best it was an expensive motion detector that allowed push notifications. I almost returned the product last month but held out with the hope the company would fix the functionality. That changed today.
Five Stars for high quality video and sound plus free web hosted video recording. Push notifications let you know someone is walking up to your door. Great for seeing if a package was delivered. Plus two way communication through the video call feature.
Four stars for some quirks in the app. Some of the setting changes require a system reboot to take effect. Also, there is no way to multi select videos for deletion.
If you are planning on buying the SkyBell HD, the highest recording quality requires a strong wifi connection to the doorbell plus a fast internet connection.
Better than before
Motion recording is so much better now, it records right when someone comes on camera. I would say it's improved from the last version and would have to say better than Ring Doorbell. The only con is that sometimes saved recordings show up a few minutes to a couple of hours later. Still a work in progress I suppose but definitely the best version yet.
