“The doorbell camera has always played a key role within our suite of products dedicated to securing front doors across the country,” said Jason Johnson, CEO and co-founder of August. “With the new August View, we’re providing an advanced secure solution that is high-performing, highly customizable and offers features that our customers have been asking for.”

The August View takes the best features from earlier generation August Doorbell Cams, enhances them, and fits them into a slim wire-free design that is powered by a swappable, rechargeable battery. Given its slim profile, the doorbell camera is compatible with almost every entryway. Its best-in-class sensor provides 1440p resolution (providing 33% more pixels than full 1080p HD) to stream crisp, realistic video of a customer’s doorstep directly to their phone.

August View users will benefit from a variety of features designed to enhance the security of their homes —

  • Instant motion alerts anytime someone approaches the doorstep
  • On-demand live video streaming
  • Minimal fisheye distortion to provide the most realistic view of your doorstep of any battery-powered doorbell
  • Zoomable video to identify package thieves and unwanted visitors
  • Review of cloud-stored videos for up to 15 or 30 days with our Gold and Platinum subscription plans

As customers have come to expect with August products, installation is simple and completely DIY. The August View is an all-in-one solution that is ready to use out of the box and includes the video doorbell, wireless chime, rechargeable battery, Micro-USB cable, and free August app. Users can customize the doorbell to complement their home and door hardware with a choice of eight different faceplates: 4 metal faceplates (satin nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, satin brass, midnight gray) and 4 colored faceplates (black - out of the box, red, blue, and white).

The August View will be available for purchase on August.com and select national retailers beginning on March 28, 2019 for $229.99 MSRP. For more information, visit https://august.com/products/august-view-doorbell-camera.
