While researching for this comparison, we looked into the differences between the sensors each smoke detector uses and found research from Underwriters Laboratories UL that suggests you should have both photoelectric and ionization type smoke detectors in your home since each type is suited for different types of fires. For example, photoelectric sensors do better with smoldering fires that grow slowly and produce a lot of smoke while ionization alarms are better for detecting fast growing, flaming fires. UL is not alone in this recommendation; many other fire safety organizations make the same suggestion. If you want more information on smoke detectors, we recommend checking out the National Fire Protection Association's helpful guide, "Safety Messages About Smoke Alarms. "How We TestedEase of UseOur testing team built a custom apparatus designed specifically to analyze each smoke alarm’s detection capabilities. It was placed in the center of a room measuring 25. 33 x 18. 83 feet. We mounted and hardwired each of the detectors to the apparatus and noted how long it took to install each one using the included manufacturer instructions. After connecting each alarm to a Wi Fi network, we installed its associated mobile app on a smartphone. We evaluated how easy each app is to use and tested how long it takes for notifications to arrive on your mobile device when there is an emergency.

home security monitoredMy SkyBell device sits in a location that will not be able to see the person until they are practically right on top of it which makes things very tricky for motion detection compared to a standard porch where it can see someone approaching. The SkyBell works by detecting motion the first time, and then if it detects a second trip of the motion within X number of seconds it triggers the alert. Therefore, my front porch has the issue of people only being on my porch for a matter of seconds and being gone. Originally when I got the device I was only capturing anyone walking near it in a slow fashion and taking their time, however if someone was being fast such as the UPS man, it would often be triggered right at the time the person was leaving and I would just see someone exiting the frame. Since I started using the device in December, they have added “Motion Sensitivity” to the app low, medium, high and this has helped, however I still am hoping for being able to customize the amount of time between activities to warrant triggering a motion activity. I have been told this might be coming soon, fingers crossed!I understand SkyBell not wanting to drive people nuts with motion alerts, and the fact my front porch is not the usual case for the average customer has caused me to be understanding and have to admit they have been great about updating the app and responding to questions. Overall I feel like the motion detection is almost perfect, is a lot better than day 1 for sure, and I am rooting for them to get it to be a 10/10 soon!Also to clarify, when motion detection happens, it stores it automatically in the cloud for FREE and you can go play it back later!Cloud StorageLoving the cloud storage for FREE, it captures Button Presses, Motion Detection, On Demand When you watch it live on your own whim, and 3rd party triggers such as IFTTT or Alexa Echo. It seems to hold a really decent amount of clips and how old they are doesn’t seem to matter, it is more based on how many activities you have saved it seems. I have seen some fall off the bottom of the list after I had quite a large number on there. It is very easy though to download the clip to your device and store it forever. When it is something I want to keep I just save it then I don’t have to worry about it being erased with time.
