Frequently Asked Questions

How do I install my SkyBell Doorbell Camera?

The installation process for your doorbell camera will depend on the type of doorbell your home currently uses. The two most common types of doorbells are mechanical and digital. If you do not currently have a doorbell, the SkyBell will not be compatible with your home. Please visit our installation guide at for detailed instructions on setting up your SkyBell Doorbell Camera.

Do I need WiFi for the doorbell camera to work correctly?

Yes. The Skybell doorbell camera requires a consistent WiFi network to connect to your home security system and record video. The camera runs off of a 2.4GHz Network, so if your router is dual-band (5 GHz), please make sure your phone is connected to the 2.4GHz network before starting. If you are unsure what network your router is broadcasting, we suggest contacting your Internet Service Provider and they can let you know which network your router is on and how to switch it to the 2.4 GHz.

Can the camera record video? If yes, for how long?

Yes, the Skybell doorbell camera is capable of capturing and recording HD video. You will be able to record to the cloud or save clips to your phone or another device if desired. The standard recording length is 30 seconds. When the motion detector is triggered, the doorbell camera will automatically record for the standard 30 seconds automatically, in addition to the length of time of the initial motion event (for a total of 35-40 seconds).

Where can I view the live and saved video?

You’ll be able to view the live and saved video from your Cove app. You will open up the Cove app, tap on the camera icon, then open up the live feed. This will show you live video of exactly what is happening on your front step. If you have saved video recordings, you can also access them from your mobile device.

Is the camera wired or wireless?

The Skybell doorbell camera is not fully wireless. It is wired into your normal doorbell wiring. If you currently have a digital doorbell rather than a mechanical one, you will need to purchase a digital doorbell adapter to be able to properly connect your doorbell camera. Please note that your current doorbell wiring must be fully powered and functional in order to support a new doorbell camera.

How does the audio feature in the camera work?

The two way audio feature on the doorbell camera is designed to be easy for you to use. The omnidirectional microphone that is part of your camera will pick up your visitors’ voices and carry them to you through the mobile app. You can also speak to your visitors from the mobile app.

Where is the best place to put the doorbell camera?

The two way audio feature on the doorbell camera is designed to be easy for you to use. The omnidirectional microphone that is part of your camera will pick up your visitors’ voices and carry them to you through the mobile app. You can also speak to your visitors from the mobile app.

Does the doorbell replace my existing one, or is it just a new feature?

This doorbell camera will replace your traditional doorbell, but it will connect to the same wiring, so the basic doorbell functionality will not disappear and will work normally.

How do doorbell notifications work?

The Skybell doorbell camera includes a PIR motion sensor in its design. This means that whenever someone walks past your door and triggers the motion sensor, your phone will receive a doorbell notification, and the camera will begin recording automatically. You will also receive notifications when someone rings your home's doorbell camera.
