What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Wi-Fi connection with no other backup: You’ll need to have a pretty good Wi-Fi signal at your front door to use the doorbell camera.
  • No zoom feature: Want to zoom in on the speeder’s license plates? No luck for you, as the SkyBell doorbell doesn’t have zoom.
  • Requires paid subscription: Like most video doorbells, the SkyBell Slim Line doesn’t have local video storage, so you’ll need a cloud subscription in order to record videos.

Bottom Line

Now branded as the Trim Plus, the original SkyBell Slim Line is wireless with a three to five-year battery life, among the longest we've seen for a doorbell camera. Control it remotely through the Alarm.com app, highly rated by iPhone and Android users alike.
