Who can make security easy? With Toucan, you can!

As our homes become more tech-integrated and WiFi technology improves, many have turned to Doorbell cameras to track/monitor guests, comings/goings of relatives/loved ones, and to monitor precious packages. Even though I have trusted Vivint with my home monitoring needs, I know many that prefer a stand-alone, plug-and-play hubless monitor.

With modern smart home devices and App integration, it has become possible to piecemeal a “customized” setup for your home with features like HomeKit, IFTTT, Google, and Alexa integration. For those interested in an unmonitored, wireless, rechargeable, do-it-yourself Doorbell camera, consider the budget-friendly Toucan Wireless Doorbell Camera.

Packaging:

The Toucan Wireless Video Doorbell arrived in an attractive 6 1/2 inches wide by 6 1/4 inches tall by 2 11/16 inches thick retail package. The top white panel displayed the Toucan name/logo in black/orange font and listed the generic product name. Instead of relying on a flat white background, the company chose a more vibrant presentation. My eye was immediately drawn to the emergency cone-orange colored accents and the large slightly raised, glossy image of the doorbell camera on the cover.

The company name was listed in the upper left corner, while the left panel displayed six product-defining features: 180-degree ultra wide angle, video call, built-in rechargeable battery, easy wire-free setup, videos encrypted for privacy, and free 24-hour video history. The generic product name and an image of the wireless door chime were listed within the lower orange footer.

The slipcover spine (orange colored), listed the product name, and displayed a labeled image of the App experience (Scroll to see everything, 180-degree ultra-wide angle, pre-recorded messages, two-way talk, siren alarm, call emergency services, photo capture, video capture), and QR codes for the App Store and Google Play Store.
