IFTTTAt GearBrain, we believe an integral device for a DIY smart home security system is a smart video doorbell. It's multifunctional and offers the peace of mind at your front door. But not many DIY home security systems offer smart video doorbells. If they do, its usually through a partnership with Ring or another manufacturer of smart video doorbells. Today, LifeShield, a ADT Company and an excellent DIY smart home security system which GearBrain has tested and likes, is adding an easy-to-install Wi-Fi connected HD video doorbell to its lineup. Their new HD video doorbell is an outstanding complement to the brand's flexible "Build Your Own Set" package and can be easily to tailored to help secure your smart home.

"A brazen 34 percent of burglars enter through the front door1, and online shopping has made the front porch thieves' new favorite place to shop. The LifeShield HD Video Doorbell was designed specifically for owners seeking increased visibility around their front doors," said John Owens, President of DIY at ADT. "The addition of the LifeShield HD Video Doorbell to our existing lineup makes LifeShield one of the most complete DIY home security systems on the market today."
