hey diy is jared here from alarm grid and today we're going to be going over whether you can use more than one skyvault doorbell camera with a total connect 2.0 account uh the answer is yes you can as of as right now you can go ahead and use five different skybell doorbell cameras with a single total connect 2.0 account we wouldn't we've been waiting for this to uh you know happen for a little while now but super glad that it finally is able to be done and very happy to help you guys be able to get that done as well now when you are choosing a skybell camera i mean just want to keep in mind though um there are two different models you can choose from so depending on which ones i mean if you're planning on setting up more than one with an account i would say you might as well stick to the same model same look make sure it looks nice and clean right there are two different models there is a round model there's a round model and then there is a trim model which is a pretty slim line and it looks very nice but the round model is able to support 1080p for the video quality and then the trim model is able to support 720p so i want to keep that in mind when you're choosing those cameras so it doesn't matter which one you choose whichever model you choose they're both going to work the same way uh doesn't matter if you have the round or the trim version if there's any um if this device picks up any motion or if somebody were to press the button to go ahead and ring the doorbell the device is going to start recording video clips and it is going to go ahead and send a notification over to total connect 2.0 so you can see who's at the front door you could pull up a video feed do what you need to whenever that happens now one thing you want to keep in mind though is when it starts recording video clips those video clips are not going to be stored on the alarmnet 360 servers they're actually going to be stored onto the skybell servers and there is a certain limit to how long the video clips can be stored um it is up to about seven days but i want to keep that in mind they are going to be go ahead they are they are going to be stored on the the skybell servers now there is a direct integration between alarmnet 360 and skybell but they're not going to be stored onto the alarm 360 servers now the video clips though you can view them on total connect 2.0 you can even download them directly from total connect 2.0 if you need to so you can have those video clips on hand once that seven days is over and that video is deleted it's completely gone from there so if you wanted to set up any skybell doorbell cameras with your total connect 2.0 accounts you can especially if you use one of our monitoring plans that supports or includes total connect 2.0 um all the skybell cameras are already included or the skybell feature is already included with those plans that we have the support total connect so you can already go ahead and set up those five different skybell cameras to the account but if you do want to add more than five skybell doorbell cameras if you need more than that then you will need to go ahead and add an additional plan to enable or to be able to support those extra five it would be an additional cost on top of the monitoring service but at least you'd be able to set up more than five if you needed to um you could set up about 10 with a second account we can go ahead and link the total connect 2.0 2.0 accounts so that you can have both locations under one total connect 2.0 login so that you can view all of those cameras now with us we can go ahead and help you out with that other companies you know it just depends on what they what they provide and how they work and everything but you can normally just go ahead and request for that and should be able to go ahead and set that up with your account if needed and that answers the question where you can use more than one skybell camera with your total connect 2.0 account if you have any further questions about the skybell cameras alarm systems in general or even our monitoring services to get everything set up please send us an email to support or go to our website if you found this video helpful please like and subscribe if you want notifications on future videos please click the bell icon this is jared with alarm grid yourself a great day
