    "I'll admit, I thought this would be a gimmick gizmo that I'd be returning in a week or two; but it actually works. Installation was simple enough, though I did have to resort to some online videos to see how to connect it to the doorbell's wiring. But after that, it does exactly what it claims. Lets me connect with my phone and see who's ringing the doorbell. I can even set it to record a minute of video anytime it detects movement on the front porch, or if the bell is rung. Simple, easy, effective."

    "Since installing this device I have been very happy. I had someone come in and install it, which was a good idea because the process is somewhat complicated. The app you use to control the thermostat works great and I love that I can combine it with Alexa. Overall, it is a bit pricey, but I think it is worth the investment. "

    "I bought this smoke alarm to replace an old broken smoke alarm in my bedroom. I love that it pairs with smart devices. Instead of getting an annoying beep to warn me about testing, low batteries, or alerts, I get a smartphone notification, which means even if I'm not home, I am confident that my home (and my pets!) are protected from fires and carbon dioxide."
