Home technology expert Ross Trethewey shows host Kevin O’Connor how smart a doorbell can be (even catching him arriving late for work!). Ross sets up a mock wall to show Kevin the different types of smart doorbells, and the two discuss how popular and common they’re becoming. And, despite having several smart doorbells on the wall, Ross explains they all have the same basic functions, including cameras, motion detection, and two-way audio.
