As with most other video doorbells, the Blink Video Doorbell will notify you on your phone when someone has pressed the doorbell, or when motion is detected, and it will allow you to see and speak to whoever is there through the accompanying Blink app. It will also notify you whenever motion is detected at the front door and can record video clips up to 30 seconds in length, either to the cloud or to the Sync Module 2. In terms of functionality, the Blink Video Doorbell notifies you on your phone when someone presses the doorbell or when motion is detected. It allows you to see and talk to visitors via the Blink app and can record video clips up to 30 seconds in length. These clips are recorded at 1080p and 30fps, with a field of view of 135 degrees horizontally and 85 degrees vertically, and include night-vision recording. While the video quality may not be the sharpest compared to some competitors, the doorbell’s features and price point make it an attractive option for those looking for a basic video doorbell system​​​​. Why does it matter? When upgrading to a video doorbell, you may find that your doorbell transformer provided enough energy to supply your old-fashioned doorbell button and the chime---but doesn't provide enough energy when you introduce the additional power draw of the video doorbell. Video quality isn’t great, with heavy compression clearly visible on live stream and recorded video clip events, even with the quality set to High. Night vision isn’t particularly impressive, either. It’s serviceable but not particularly sharp or crisp.In addition to locating your doorbell transformer, go to your chime assembly and look for a label. You will likely need to remove the chime cover to find the model number, wiring diagram, or additional information. What we're looking for is the recommended voltage. Here are some common problems that indicate your transformer is underpowered. These examples presume you've tested the wiring with a multimeter and confirmed that there isn't a dead wire or short in the system. Doorbell transfers are very simple and sturdy devices, and it's not unreasonable to expect the transformer to last for decades or even, potentially, the entire lifespan of the home.

Another advantage of the Blink Video Doorbell are its flexible power options. It can be powered either by batteries or via a mains transformer. If opting for battery power, lithium AA batteries are required, which are included in the box, or it can be connected via existing doorbell wires. This versatility in power options ensures that the doorbell can be installed in various settings without much hassle​​.

I always prefer the latter because it means I never have to worry about the doorbell running out of power, and because I like to have a mechanical chime as well as an electronic one when the doorbell is pressed. It's a bit of a simplification, but volt-amperes function in much the same way as watts do in AC nomenclature. If you'd like to dive deep into the differences, you can start by reading up on power factors, but you hardly need an amateur electrical engineering degree to follow along here. If not for video doorbells, most people would never even think about their doorbell transformer, let alone consider replacing it. Video doorbells, however, change the equation. Depending on the combination of chimes and video doorbell hardware you have (or if you want to replace both the front and rear doorbells with video doorbells) you'll likely need a bigger transformer. Doesn't matter if you're installing a Nest doorbell, a Ring doorbell, or even a more DIY-type video doorbell solution like those from Amcrest or similar companies.

Doorbell transformer output varies by the home's age and where in the world you are, but typically they output anywhere from 8-24V to 10-40VA, with the most common transformer type in the U.S. being 16V 10VA. That means the transformer steps down the AC power of the home's electrical system into a 16-volt AC output with a "power" of 10 volt-amperes. A doorbell transformer is a type of electrical transformer called a step-down transformer. It reduces the incoming alternating current (AC) from high voltage (the 120V AC found throughout North American homes) to a lower voltage (because you don't need 120V AC to drive a simple doorbell system).

Those video clips are recorded at 1080p and 30fps, with a field of view of 135 degrees horizontally and 85 degrees vertically, and there’s night-vision recording as well. It isn’t the sharpest video capture around, however – the Ezviz DB2 captures crisper 2K (1,920 x 1,444) video. Everybody starts their DIY journey somewhere, and if you're just now contemplating that your doorbell has something called a transformer (and that maybe you need to change it out), you're likely in good company---so don't sweat it. General responsiveness is great, with doorbell events activating alerts in less than two seconds, whether over the home Wi-Fi or remotely via 5G connections. There’s also very little delay in transmitting audio each way, so conversations with couriers proceed without frustration.

Finally, it’s worth knowing that, if you don’t pay for a subscription, you don’t get the full set of features. For instance, the doorbell won’t record any video while you’re viewing the live stream. That means if you’re ever broken into and happen to be alerted to that fact while it’s happening, you may only get a partial recording if you choose to view the action live on your phone. You might find yourself in the same situation if you upgrade from, say, the regular wired Ring doorbell or the Ring Pro to the newer Ring Pro 2. The older Ring models only required 16V 10VA, but the newer models require 16V 30A. Setting those up isn’t as straightforward as it should be, either and – oddly – smart speakers with a display won’t show the live feed automatically when someone calls. You can display the feed by asking your smart display to “Show my … camera”, but by the time you’ve done that, you might have missed your caller anyway.
