No improvement. I cleared all other devices off of the 2. 4Ghz channel and only allowed SkyBell to use it. Nope. Firmware, all up to date. I did several speed test for Skybell's SSID and was consistently clocking over 3Mbps, well over double Skybell's requirement of 1. 5Mbps. When I told support my results they actually said, well 5 6Mbps would be better. Really?Ok, called Internet provider and upped the speed. Now I'm getting just over 6Mbps. No improvement.

Indoor cameras range in size from practically invisible to a 6 inch tall device that sits on a flat surface. Outdoor cameras are exposed to the elements, so check that the camera you want to use outdoors is certified for that purpose. Outdoor cameras should be weather proof, vandal proof, and come equipped with night vision. Other features might include a built in motion detector. It’s important to buy equipment that can stand up to your local weather conditions, be that extreme heat, cold, or moisture. Cameras are also exposed to anyone who approaches your home, so you should consider how your video feed is protected from vandals smashing the camera. Vandal proof cameras protect the camera lens from damage with a polycarbonate dome cover or metal housing. Just like indoor cameras, consider how videos are stored, when the camera will film, and the quality of the video. You will get the best outdoor protection from cameras with a wide field of vision, high resolution video, and continuous video feed that is uploaded to the cloud. A wireless doorbell camera can work as a stand alone device or in tandem with the rest of your security system. When someone rings the doorbell, it activates the doorbell camera.

Smoke detectors should be placed where smoke isn’t supposed to be. Avoid installing them in kitchens or rooms that have steams like saunas and bathrooms to prevent false alarms. Do not install smoke and carbon dioxide detector in breezy and ventilated areas like in front of electric fans, air conditioners, windows and doors. They may pick up smoke that originated in other places or the fresh air might obscure the reading, preventing the device from setting off when it should. Install them on a high wall or in the ceiling because smoke and fire rises. What if you have a big house and there’s a fire starting somewhere in the basement and you’re asleep in your bedroom on the third floor?Fortunately photoelectric smoke detectors can be interconnected, meaning if a smoke detector sets off in the basement, all smoke detectors in the residence would alarm. This is effective in alerting the entire family. Installation and wiring, however, requires supervision. As maintenance, make sure to vacuum your smoke detectors monthly and test them weekly by burning a small material so it could detect smoke. As convenient as it sounds, smoke and carbon dioxide detectors do not last forever. It is best to replace smoke detectors every 10 years.
