For today’s smart home, one of the essential devices is a smart video doorbell. It can protect the outside of your home as well as allow you to communicate with visitors without having to open your door. But integrating a smart video doorbell with your other smart devices can be a challenge. Comcast has a new solution which can solve this for Xfinity customers. Meet the new Xfinity Video Doorbell which is powered by Xfinity Internet. This new Xfinity Video Doorbell will seamlessly integrate into new and existing Xfinity Home systems and allows customers to monitor their front door from anywhere at any time of the day.

With the holidays approaching as well as the influx of out-of-town guests and holiday packages, there has never been more activity at the front door. According to the 2021 Deloitte Holiday Retail Survey, 62% of holiday spending is expected to occur online this year, opening up potential opportunities for package theft. With motion notifications and 24/7 video recording, the Xfinity Video Doorbell will help consumers keep an eye on deliveries and keep porch pirates at bay from anywhere this holiday season.

“The Xfinity Video Doorbell, integrated with our other Xfinity services, provides a convenient, secure way for homeowners to check in on their front door from anywhere, anytime,” said Matthew Ecker, VP, Consumer Services, Comcast Cable. “We make it easy, for instance, for a homeowner to view the in-app video feed to see who is at the door or to check to see if a package has been delivered.”

The Xfinity Home Doorbell is equipped with:

  • HD Video Quality: the Xfinity Video Doorbell provides a 4:3 aspect ratio head-to-toe view of the front door as well as the surrounding areas with HD video quality during both the day and the night.
  • Two Way Audio: Customers will receive a “ding” notification on the Xfinity app and on their television through X1 or Flex when someone rings their doorbell. In addition, they can hear and speak directly to their front door even when they are not home by accessing the Xfinity app.
  • Motion Alerts: Customers will receive motion alerts around any activity to the Xfinity app as well as on the largest screen in their home through X1 or Flex. In addition, Xfinity Home customers to set specific areas of interest so they only receive motion notifications for the specific areas of their front door, driveway and porch that they care about.
  • Easy Integration: The new Xfinity Home Doorbell seamlessly integrates with the entire Xfinity ecosystem. Customers can pull up video clips for all their Xfinity Home cameras, including the Doorbell, in the Xfinity app or on X1, they can sort clips by those that include people, vehicles and pets, as well as arm and disarm their entire home security system in the Xfinity Home app. (You can also visit The GearBrain, our compatibility find engine for smart devices.
