Enercare Smarter Home Video Doorbell with Camera
The video doorbell is activated when the doorbell is pressed or motion is detected at your front door, sending you an instant notification and recording the moment it’s activated. You can interact with your visitors and get their attention directly from your smartphone with the built-in two-way speaker, even when you are not home. You can also check-in on your home at anytime from anywhere in the world with 24/7 live streaming video right from the Enercare Smarter Home mobile app.
Live Video Solutions Made Easy
The Enercare Smarter Home Video Doorbell with Camera provides instant visibility to your front door with advanced features such as 24/7 access to live video and continuous recording – day or night. Get real-time notifications and video clips sent directly to your phone the moment any activity or movement is detected at your front door.
Customize your video settings to capture only the things that matter to you with motion triggers and schedules, so you can keep an eye on your home while you are asleep or away from home.
With the Enercare Smarter Home mobile app, you have access to free cloud storage of up to 1000 video clips and you can also download and save any clip. Now that’s security in your pocket!
Customized Automation and Interactions
For additional automation functionality and convenience, pair the video doorbell with the Enercare Smarter Home Door Lock, so you can unlock your front door to let your visitors in when you are away from home.
Customize your video settings so you receive instant alerts right to your smartphone when the doorbell is pressed and speak directly to any unexpected guests or unwanted solicitors. You can also set motion triggers paired with your Enercare Smarter Home Door or Window Contact, Garage Door Opener or other security sensors so your Enercare Smarter Home Video Doorbell with Camera starts recording the moment activity is detected.

Smarter Home - Indoor & Outdoor Camera FAQs
With a standard account, 1,000 clips can be uploaded per month. Once this number is exceeded, the recording schedule for motion and activation of the doorbell will not be uploaded. At the beginning of the next month another 1,000 videos can be uploaded, however, the account holder is required to remove the pause. This can be found under Video > Recording schedules.
The cameras use password protection to prevent access from outside the Enercare website, with the Enercare cameras employing advanced MD5-based “digest authentication” for user authentication. More simply, it’s the same kind of technology that banks use to ensure your privacy and security.
You can see all cameras associated with the account, and additional logins created for the account can be assigned permission to see the cameras as required.

We recommend that you have 200-250 kbps of upload bandwidth per camera. NOTE: This is the upload, not the download speed of the network. You can test this by running a speed test while on your local network from: www.speedtest.net If your upload bandwidth is lower than recommended, the cameras may still work, but the live view may look “jumpy” as the frame rate will be reduced as a result of the upload bandwidth limitation. If your Internet bandwidth is too low, you can contact your Internet Service Provider to find out how to increase your upload bandwidth.
