Doorbell Date Cam

Valentine’s day is coming up soon and for those of us with teenagers, it means we’ll need to keep an extra watchful eye on the dating scene. You just never know what kind of ne’er-do-well is going to come out of the woodwork hoping to take your kid out on a date. But what if the problem is compounded by the need to be out of town on date nights? How will you give those shady dates a proper stinkeye?

Well, with the Vivint Doorbell Camera you may just have the perfect solution. There are two main features that will be helpful in this scenario. First is Visitor Detection. When the suspect youth comes to the door and rings the bell, you’ll be immediately notified on your smart phone. This will give you the chance to pull up a live feed of the front porch so that you can inspect the would-be suitor. A bonus benefit here is that you can double check that your kid’s outfit is parent-approved before they head out.

The second helpful feature is the Two Way Talk. While watching the live camera feed on your smart phone, you can actually talk through the doorbell camera to the kid on your porch and hold a little impromptu interview. It’s no substitute for a proper high-pressure living room grilling but you can still cover the important stuff like, “What is your 5 year plan?” and “What are your intentions with my child?” and “Have you ever been charged with a felony?” You know, the basics.

Watching your kids grow up and head out on dates is never the most comfortable experience for a parent. But with the Vivint Doorbell Camera you can do your best to make sure it’s just as uncomfortable for anybody trying to date your child.
