These days, you can never be too careful, and that’s something that this homeowner in Albertville, MN can attest to. Thanks to his newly installed Honeywell Skybell doorbell, he was able to catch a package thief in action.

The homeowner realized that something wasn’t right when a package he recently ordered from Amazon was marked as delivered, yet it was nowhere to be found. Fortunately, he had installed the Honeywell Skybell doorbell in his home just months prior, which is armed with several features that provide increased home security and monitoring capabilities.

There had been a string of package burglaries in the neighborhood. Unfortunately, no one in the area had their home equipped with a Skybell. When this particular homeowner noticed that a package he had ordered had gone missing, he turned to his Skybell’s video recording feature and was able to catch the thief red handed. The video recorded by the Skybell shows the brazen thief casually walking up to the home and removing a basketball from his bag, so he’d have room to stuff the large Amazon package into it. He then walks away from the scene of the crime with the Amazon package and his basketball in tow.

The Skybell doorbell from Honeywell is a serious advancement in doorbell technology compared to a typical analog doorbell. With the Skybell, homeowners receive alerts on their enabled smart device whenever someone rings the doorbell or approaches the front door in general. The homeowner can then interact with the guest at the door from anywhere in the world, whether they’re at home or not. The Skybell also offers 24/7 video monitoring, so you’ll be able to see what’s happening at your front entrance at all times. This feature, in particular, came in handy in the case of this video, where the homeowner was able to catch a package thief in action thanks to his Skybell.

The Skybell displays video in up to 1080p resolution with 5x zoom. A speaker and microphone built into the doorbell allow you to have a full conversation with your visitor as they’re at your front door. The Skybell doorbell also has features such as HD color night vision, the ability to take pictures and video recording capability.

Homeowners with dogs or sleeping children are sure to appreciate the silent mode feature, which mutes the doorbell while continuing to provide smart device alerts so you can communicate with visitors without disturbing anyone in the home. The construction of the Skybell allows it to function in climates between -40 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. In addition to these features, the Skybell also features a theft guarantee, so if your Skybell is ever stolen, it will be replaced by Honeywell free of charge.

As you can see, the Skybell is a truly advanced doorbell that is capable of things that have never been possible with traditional analog or digital doorbells. Thanks to the Skybell, this homeowner in Albertville, MN was able to catch the package thief red-handed and help restore order to his neighborhood.
