After comparison shopping, I chose this video doorbell based on the advantages of no monthly data storage fees, the price, and the positive reviews, and I'm glad I did. If I could give 10 stars, I would. Installation was relatively simple and took about 30 minutes to get it up and running, including downloading the software and getting it set up. The HD image from the camera is bright and clear and the angle is wide enough that it “sees” approximately 25 feet to the end of my yard, even at night. Its microphone and speaker pick up and transmit voices clearly and easily understood. Because this doorbell was hardwired to the existing doorbell wiring, the regular doorbell chime sounds as well as the chime in the software, which I like. Storage of “events” is on the included micro SD card, and it is easy to clear the unnecessary “events” to increase storage space on the card. Predictably, resolution declines somewhat as the view is zoomed out toward the street, but it's still sharp enough to make out details of vehicles (e.g. the mail truck) and basic descriptions of people. Perhaps the motion sensor is a bit too sensitive; in default mode, it kept alerting to motion detected in some moderately high winds, when plants and the neighbor's flag were being blown by the wind. A minor tweak of the settings fixed that issue, such that it did not alert to motion detected when a cat walked through the yard; however, it did alert when a large grasshopper flew near and across the field of the camera. Once this was solved, the only issues that I have with it is that (1) there is no version of the software for a desktop computer – only for a smartphone. (2) It also occasionally disconnects itself and a manual reconnection is necessary, and (3) the software could been designed with additional buttons so that when in the settings or events mode, a button could take you back to the live video instead of the extra steps of having to clear the cookies out of the smartphone and restart the software. These minor glitches aside, this video doorbell is an excellent value for the price and I highly recommend it.

Wow. This doorbell camera is awesome
I recieved this camera 3 days ago. The results are already in. This camera has a great quality in its build and performance. I am in love with the 2 way audio. The picture quality is amazing. This allows me to check the door without even leaving the couch. I can now tell those door to door salesman no thanks without much bother. It hooked right into wiring of my old doorbell. It also has the notion sensor. And lastly the price was very nice compared to other products that do even less. I would recommend this to all. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Well worth getting
Just received this ALC AWF71D SightHD Video Doorbell with 1080p Full HD Wi-Fi Camera and already love it. It's an added addition to my protection and peace of mind before opening the door to anyone.
When activated by motion, it alerts me that someone is there and I can decide if I wish to answer the door by opening it or respond by voice.
It's easy to install by using the existing wired doorbell. If you don't have a wired doorbell, you'll need to have the added expense of getting one installed.
The bonus is that there's no added expense of a monthly fee for the app and it uses your home wi-fi to alert you.
I've very pleased with this and recommend it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I have been very pleased with the ALC AWF71D Sighthd Video Doorbell with 1080p Full HD Wi-Fi Camera. The installation was easy. It came with brackets which made it so much easier to get the perfect angle to see the whole front door area that I was needing it for. It took about 45 minutes to hook up to my existing doorbell and it was all set . I down loaded the free app that is used with it with no problem and it was ready to go.
I really like that I can be anywhere from home and see who is at my door as long as Im connected to WiFi . The picture quality is great and the sound is clear. I'm able to see and verify who they are and not have to worry about strangers. The only thing that I can say negative about the doorbell is the size of it. It is a little bigger than I had expected one to be but it does the job and does it well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
No very happy with it take forever to load
This Video Doorbell is WORTHLESS! Blinking Lights?
1. Mounting brackets are plastic, clunky and can only mount in specific positions relative to the door. 2. CanNOT get the app to connect to the doorbell. 3. Support for this item is sketchy and no help so far. 4. Waiting on firmware update to resolve.... 5. Doorbell mounted but WORTHLESS at this point. 6. RETURNING doorbell soon and will update on THAT process afterwards.
I returned it the very next day. It took forever to connect to Bluetooth, Then it disconnected and wouldn't re-connect. Great idea with self containment, but awful in operation. Don't waste your money or patience. These are knockoffs for a reason.
I had an electrician here several times to install it but it was too hard so we finally gave up and sent it back. They weren't very helpful either
