How does the Skybell perform?

  • The SkyBell HD Camera is a 1080p camera that broadcasts in 720p with ten (10) feet of full picture clarity. The 1080p camera maximizes the output for the 720p stream, so the picture quality is better than a 720p camera broadcasting at 720p. It broadcasts at 720p to reduce bandwidth and ensure stability.

  • It also has a full 180 degree viewing angle, allowing a viewing angle that is almost parallel to the device!  A wedge kit adds 15 degrees of angle.

  • The SkyBell HD also has a brilliant Full HD Color Night Vision.  This means that even in pitch black conditions, the video will remain in full color, and as bright as day!

  • The Frames Per Second, or FPS, of the SkyBell HD's video is 30 Frames.  This means that every second of video, there are 30 frames of video being transmitted in HD.  The better your Wi-Fi connection, the better the maximum FPS will be.

  • How about for the Skybell Trim? I have this one connected to my system and the video is very jerky and pixelated. I have well over 2mbps upload (averaging 5mbps) so my wifi should not be an issue. Is there a way to fix this?
