Doorbells have found themselves modernized for the 21st century thanks to the addition of video — seeing who's in front of the door before you open it, and being able to speak with them, helps improve safety and makes it easier to know if getting off your couch to answer the door is worth it. Last year we saw Arlo announce its Video Doorbell, which was a great value initially and only got better as new features arrived.

Belkin has produced smart home products for years under its Wemo brand, but Wemo devices have never had the best reputation. Most of its previous products suffered from connectivity and software issues, and when so many alternative options exist for smart plugs or internet-connected lights, there wasn't much of a point in purchasing Wemo products.
Thankfully, Wemo is starting to address its long-running software problems. The company switched to an online account system earlier this year, paving the way for a more streamlined experience. Wemo has also released a new smart plug, which is incredibly compact and actually works properly.
