Combining the convenience of a smartlock, the assurance of a keypad, and a built-in camera, the Gate Smart Lock aims to be the only security product you need for your entryway. It installs easily, replacing your existing deadbolt, and offers multiple ways to enter — via electronic key, a pincode, or physical key. Thanks to the motion-detecting camera, you can see and talk to whomever is at your door, giving instructions for deliveries or remotely unlocking the door for friends and family. And since it connects via WiFi, you can control it not only with the companion app, but also with your voice using Amazon Alexa.
Bridging the gap between traditional doorbells and overly complex, camera-laden setups, the Ding Smart Doorbell is designed to give you just enough intelligence. This three-piece system consists of a subdued, weather-resistant button that's thin enough to fit on your doorframe and can operate off batteries or a hardwire, a chime that's covered in handsome fabric and can sit on a table or mount on your wall, and a companion app. When someone rings your bell, the chime goes off and a call goes out to the app so you can talk to whoever's at the door no matter where you are. You can easily change the sound and volume of the chime, and even set up quiet hours so your phone goes off but not the chime — ideal for families with sleeping children in the home.
