How do video doorbell products work? They use your existing home Wi-Fi network to create a ring of security around your home. By hooking up to your Wi-Fi, video doorbell products can use apps to alert you whenever someone approaches your door or comes in a range of a security camera. You can then view an HD video stream of the person and speak to them using two-way audio communication.
