    Don't. I'm about to dismantle our doorbell and put up an actual cast iron bell. Much cooler, nicer, and enjoyable to use. Put up normal cameras, no need for it to be in a doorbell.

    Why have some unnatural plastic piece of crap that was made in Zhongshan-ChongChing Factory 372 by the million, which then has some annoying crappy ding-dong sound.


    Plus if you cark it in your bed or on the jacks, it can be rang 21 times as you're carried out.

    80 quid a year I think it is for Cyrille of mind.

    Or look into Eufy if you're a cheap bastard
    I bought Eufy when they first came out.

    Put them up two years ago, and they still have 50% battery.

    Great devices. Motion detection, Alerts, etc.

    The problem with that is if you have a front garden and have the doorbell on the front gate. You need it to ring inside the house as you'll never hear an 'actual cast iron bell' ringing down on the lane.

    We have nice two-tone 'ding dong' bell which was great until the daughter found the 'ding dong' noise on the internet and started playing it through her phone. She had days of fun watching me walking down to see who was at the gate and swearing at the world until I eventually twigged what she was up to.

    Every byte of video from your front door will be sent back to China, to be analysed by their all seeing all hearing cyber bots, and when they take over the world they will know who will be the first to be put up against the wall.

    I wouldnt give the sneaky chinks the steam off my piss but its getting harder and harder to avoid buying chinese tech, in fact it is well nigh on impossible. Fuck them.

    We have thought of that, and decided that if it is an issue, pretty much every koont coming to the villa with either be able to call on the phone (Lazada delivery), or through a food delivery App (Food Panda), or through Line (friends and family). So more than anything, it's pretty much an excuse to disconnect and get rid of the annoying fudgering thing.

    I'm perfectly at ease with them watching me scratch my arse and take charge of a Tikka Masala with Naan from food panda.

    I think if if anything they'll reward me for all the dodgy gear I buy from them off Lazada.

    You have to give cred to her for that....she probably videoed you too and sent it to her friends.

    The TikTok footage brought to mind the old the old 'dancing footballers' stuff from 'Tiswas' days.

    How we laughed.

    Robbing fockers have hiked the price by 40 percent this year.
    I'd send that doorbell back if I were you Joe.

    But you only need a subscription if you want recording.

    I see it integrates with Alexa so if you have a Fire TV device you can get a little window to pop up on your TV if someone rings, and answer them with the remote. That's nifty if the footy's on.
    The next post may be brought to you by my little bitch Spamdreth

    So 5 a month now.

    I can live with that, bit of a novelty at the moment and cheaper than a dog.

    Trouble is if the WiFi is interrupted or switched off.
    Then your kids can hold a allnight rave in your absence

    What's the point of not having the recording and ability to look back and see who has been at your front door/breaking in your shed/pissing through your letterbox? You may as well just buy a normal fucking doorbell

    We get lots of momentary power cuts so I run my router power through a UPS. Never a problem.
