The best home security system means having the right kinds of cameras and other types of sensors for your home. This can include discreet doorbell cameras, so information about the person ringing the doorbell can be quickly and easily discovered. With that in mind, there are some doorbell cameras that are much more discreet than others. These are cameras a person can see — but there are some ways to make doorbell cameras less obvious to an unwanted visitor.

In some cases, it’s good to have a camera everyone can see, so they know they’re being watched. In other cases, though, a homeowner may benefit from having a doorbell camera that’s not nearly as noticeable.

Choosing an easily concealed doorbell camera

Doorbell cameras from Skybell offer options with smaller, less obvious camera lenses. Keep in mind that companies like Ring clearly advertise as a video doorbell brand.

A slimmer video doorbell takes up less space on the door frame, making installation easier for those with smaller homes or for those who don’t have a lot of wall area next to the front door. Convenience matters along with concealment, so it’s worth addressing both issues.

Considerations for good doorbell cameras

A strong security system is one that’s well integrated, and that has everything the homeowner needs. There are plenty of good doorbell camera choices, and with a proper security system and a good doorbell camera, a homeowner feels better about their level of whole-house protection. In order to choose the right doorbell camera, homeowners should consider:

  • Discreet options that can be easily concealed.

  • Whether two-way audio is important to them.

  • Options for local storage and recording.

  • Whether FTP is something in which they want to invest.

  • Customer reviews that show the reliability of a doorbell camera.

  • Additional options and features.

Do doorbell cameras come from security companies?

It’s possible to get doorbell cameras as part of a security system package, but homeowners also can buy video doorbells separately. Homeowners have many doorbell camera options today, because they can buy devices from multiple places and integrate them together.
