We really didn’t think it was possible to make a smart doorbell any smarter, but lo and behold Maximus somehow did.

A video doorbell with two cameras seems like it should exist already, but up until now… we don’t think it has. Enter the Answer DualCam, which can keeps one eye forward and one eye on the package on your doorstep with its two motion-sensing 1080p HDR cameras. You can view the two-camera feed on your phone through the Kuna app and when someone rings the bell, it pings your phone, so you can say g’day and tell them where to delicately place your ordered goods.
The driving force for this new feature is the large number of package thefts from porches. With the Maximus Answer, you’ll be able to see not only if a package was delivered, but also check to see if it’s still sitting on your porch. It might also be useful to spot anything under adult waist height, like small kids or animals.
Maximus Lighting also announced a doorbell, but with a twist: dual 1080p cameras. One pointing forward, and one pointing at your feet and packages. So now you get a full, 155-degree field of view look at what’s going on.
The entire idea is to eliminate as many blind spots as possible offer a full view of what’s happening on your porch. The DualCam can also detect packages when they’re dropped off. There’s also two-way communication with echo cancellation, and Maximus says that speaker is music quality. You can use it to play custom greetings and messages. Plus, there’s both Alexa and Google Assistant integration.
Outfitted with a dual-camera system, the doorbell is capable of recording 1080p HDR content directly in front of it along with the lower section where other options fall short. This helps to completely record footage from your front door that is holistic and complete to prevent thieves from sneaking past undetected.
The Maximus Answer’s USP is having two built-in cameras to give users a broader field of vision – with the front-facing camera seeing who’s at the door and the bottom-mounted camera spotting the arrival of packages.
California firm Maximus unveiled a doorbell which contains two cameras to provide a broader field of vision.
