With top and bottom cameras to eliminate all blind spots, Answer is the most effective security product to fully capture video footage of people and packages at the front door

Maximus®, a home security company providing easy-to-install smart home security solutions, today announces the general availability of the Answer DualCam Video Doorbell – the industry’s first and only doorbell to include two cameras (top and bottom). 

Answer features two HD cameras to detect people, packages, pets or anything else at your front door, eliminating all blind spots with a 180° field of view and 30-foot range sensor with Night Vision. The dual cameras provide an upgrade to smart doorbells that are currently on the market because it allows the top camera to be tilted upward to capture entire bodies (including faces on a shady porch) within two feet of the door, which are often cut from the frame if the visitor is standing too close to the door. 

Answer is enabled by Ambarella’s state-of-the-art high-resolution quad-core S5L-4K chip, and its four cores allow for sophisticated on-chip AI features. The front-facing music quality speaker plays messages, sounds and customizable greetings, while allowing improved two-way communication with visitors. The smart doorbell also uses less power than other video doorbells, provides lower latency and faster connection to the Kuna app to see and speak to visitors, sound an alarm, or dial 911 in the event of an emergency and more. 

“When we announced Answer earlier this year, we were met with an overwhelmingly positive response,” said Mark Honeycutt, CEO of Maximus. “On numerous occasions, we heard the same complaint surrounding traditional smart doorbells: they weren’t capturing everything at the front door, including people and packages, so it completely eliminated their purpose if something was stolen or damaged. Answer addresses these concerns and provides an affordable, easy-to-use solution that gives homeowners the best field-of-view yet.”

Answer automatically records a one-minute video when it detects activity and stores recordings within the last two hours on the cloud for free. Each recording includes at least 10 seconds of footage prior to the recorded event to ensure users receive valuable context in regard to the activity, whereas most competitors only start rolling the camera once the action has started. In addition to the free two-hour download and “look back” window in the app, Premium features, like AI detection and extended recording history, are available for affordable subscription fees.
