These high-quality video doorphone systems provide elegant, self-contained packages for entrance monitoring. When a visitor presses the button on the door unit, the monitor screen turns on and a chime tone plays. To converse with your visitor, simply pick up the handset and talk. To let your guest inside, just press the "open" button to unlock the door (optional electric door strike required).

    Don't confuse these with cheaper units. These quality video doorphone systems have large 4-inch monitor screens and quality construction and finish throughout. Other high-quality features include the ability to manually turn on the camera from the handset (in case someone knocks on the door instead of pressing the button) and built-in infrared illuminators for nighttime viewing without external lighting.
