Comments (3)

We've been using skybell and have been happy with it. When this was announced, I was excited. Having something fully integrated with the DMP system is going to be great for dealers. I like the proxy reader outside the house and the ability to unlock doors and disarm the system from the app when you get a video call from the door bell. 

IPVM note: Clarified WiFi network integration and panel compatibility in report. 

Very nice feature to add to DMP panels.  They are in high demand as well.

This combined with the recent integration into Amazon Echo and Google Home will certainly have an impact on the market for DMP integrators.
