Does the Skybell Work with the L5210 or L7000?
A Skybell Camera does not connect with a one's security panel. Rather, it is integrated into a user's security setup through Total Connect or Alarm.com. The user must have the Skybell feature enabled on their TC or ADC account. The camera can then be linked with the account using the respective app.
