Today we announced August Video Recording, a companion service to the August Doorbell Cam.
The August Doorbell Cam lets customers see and speak with visitors at their door, from anywhere, using a smartphone. Users know who’s at the door, even when they’re not home. Motion detection triggers alerts whenever something is happening at the front door. August Video Recording lets users replay, download and share recordings of each interaction at the front door – visitors who ring the doorbell and any motion or missed visitor such as a package delivery, all from the August app.
In conjunction with this announcement, current customers, as well as new customers who activate their Doorbell Cam by December 31, 2016, automatically receive six months of the new service free-of-charge. The service includes 30 days of video history. After the promotion, August Video Recording will be available for $4.99 a month or $49.99 for a one-year plan.
“The launch of our Digital Video Recording service signals the end of our public Beta,” said Jason Johnson, CEO of August Home Inc. “During the Beta, customers spent a significant amount of time reviewing motion-triggered, suspicious activities and viewing live, on-demand video to simply check what is going on outside their door. They shared videos of kids trick-or-treating for Halloween, and also package thieves stealing deliveries from their doorstep. This validated the power of our Doorbell Cam not only as a way to communicate with visitors remotely, but also as an important security tool.”
Johnson continued, “Offering users six months of Digital Video Recording service for free is a way for us to thank our customers for their loyalty and encourage new customers to experience how smart security products like our Doorbell Cam will provide peace of mind and bring new convenience.”
