'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards.

If you haven't tried a video doorbell yet, they are a great feature to add to your porch for extra security. They can get a little pricey, but for less than $100, you can get the Eufy Security Wi-Fi Video Doorbell right now.

Full disclosure: This doorbell will require the wires and chime connections from your old doorbell, so don't get rid of those to make way for this smart one. You also may want to opt for professional installation, but these upfront quirks shouldn't scare you away from the perks of this amazing doorbell.

Featured in our picks for best doorbells, the Eufy Security Wi-Fi video doorbell offers a 2K HD resolution with a 2560 x 1920 quality. Because it's a video doorbell, it responds in real time and you can speak to whoever is on the other side via a two-way audio channel.

AI technology will also detect body shape and face pattern so you will be alerted only when people are on the property -- not cats, dogs, or the stray raccoon. And with eight different chimes, you can customize your in-person alerts to your preferences, too.

The best part about this particular doorbell is that while most doorbells require a paid subscription, this one has zero hidden costs. You will only pay for the doorbell. All storage is done locally on a plug-in, so you can access it at any time. With over 10,000 reviews and an average of 4.4 out of 5 stars, it's a great addition to keep your home safe. It also made our list of best video doorbells you can buy, too.

To get the doorbell, you can add it to your cart at Amazon for $99. Otherwise, Eufy is also offering $50 off their wireless, battery powered kit, but you'll have to apply the coupon and add it to your cart. The wireless version is also pricier at $150 after the code, but still a great deal for a smart doorbell.
