If you want to build something on a budget and like hacking with a Raspberry Pi, take a look at (clearly not for everyone, but I'm building something similar to be triggered when my garden gate is opened).

Bought a Ring doorbell from the US about a year ago and it's one of the very few gadgets that actually does what it says it'll do. It does require a decent broadband connection speed and needs to be fairly close to your router so that you have a strong wi-fi connection. This means the lag between someone pressing the doorbell and the notification on your phone/tablet will be shorter.

Only real downsides are:

It's a bit chunky. There is a "pro" version available now that's slimmer and does 1080P. That said it requires hard wiring.

The battery life is pants. I hard wired mine using a Byron transformer/bell which means it'll actually ring in the house when the bell is pressed. Also it means you can use the doorbell as a webcam using the "live view" option.

It also needs a buffer of a few seconds when motion is triggered because by the time you get the alert the person is usually walking away from the house. Fine it they actually press the bell though.

Oh, there is a cost if you want to store the footage. £2.50/month or £24.99/annually. That's for 6 months of doorbell footage. Not too bad.

I assume they offer this because they'd be footage of the thief stealing the doorbell.
There is a technology reviewer on youtube who bought this and explains why he stopped using it

I bought mine in November and paid £159 also got it connected to a transformer and a ding done chime. To be fair the bell is great my chime is rubbish.
i have a door bell but sometimes i take it off fed up of people ringing it lol

​No
These are awesome, had one for a while and would highly recommend it! Heat from me
The Chrome one has gone back up. The brass one has dropped a bit to £140.92.

Ordered mine which should be with me tomorrow. Just a bit concerned about the lag which a few people have mentioned.

Just make sure it's positioned close(ish) to your router. You can always use a wifi extender. Also consider hard wiring if you want it to ring indoors and you want to use "live view". Saves pulling it off the wall to charge it too.
