What is the difference between the stick type and the embedded type of the smart video doorbell?

At present, there are three mainstream installation methods for smart video doorbells on the market: 3M glue sticking, expansion screw fixing, and embedded integrated installation. Most people are familiar with the first two. They often use 3M glue to install smart doorbells. The expansion screw fixing method is also used by some people for the sake of safety. The embedded type rarely appears in front of the public. Today, we will talk about the difference between the 3M glue paste type and embedded smart video doorbell, and sort out the comparison of functions for your reference.

What is an embedded smart video doorbell?

Embedded smart video doorbell (front installation) is embedded in the door and needs to be wired and installed when decorating and installing the home security door, adhesive video doorbell (rear installation) is the common rear-mounted smart doorbell does not need to be deployed in advance, just buy it and stick it on the door. Therefore, the built-in type is more suitable for users who buy new houses to prepare for renovation and refurbishment of old houses, or for real estate developers, home improvement designers, smart home suppliers, and other enterprises.

What are the differences between embedded and pasted video doorbells?

We selected several rear-mounted video doorbells with good sales and compared the functions with the newly released front-mounted video doorbells.

From the comparison of functions, we can find that the biggest difference between the paste type and the embedded type is the power supply method. The paste-type uses a charging or dry battery power supply. Under normal use, the battery life can be standby for about 2 months. Relatively speaking, the built-in video doorbell is wired with a repeater in advance and powered by the POE Ethernet, which means that the device can always be online.

Besides, to solve the problem of weak WiFi signal, the sticky video doorbell needs to be equipped with a small box-type signal base station, while the built-in doorbell connects to the indoor WiFi through a repeater. More stable WiFi network transmission, convenient for users to make video calls anytime, anywhere. Although the apps of the smart doorbells all support Android/iOS systems, none of the sticky doorbells support OTA upgrades, and the embedded doorbells can continuously optimize their functions through remote over-the-air upgrades to make a better service.

Overall, the sticky type is more convenient for the settled users, and the disadvantages are in the battery life; the embedded smart video doorbell needs to be wired in advance, and the installation is more complicated, but the power supply is worry-free. There is no need to purchase a signal base station separately, stable wifi makes it more adaptable to low-temperature environments.
