Comcast launches the new Xfinity Video Doorbell featuring a head-to-toe view of your front door, motion alerts, Two Way audio and more



Xfinity Home customers now have a new solution for porch pirates since today Comcast announced its svelte new Xfinity Video Doorbell. With the holidays approaching there has never been more activity at the front door and a better reason to protect the people and goods who visit it.

“We make it easy, for instance, for a homeowner to view the in-app video feed to see who is at the door or to check to see if a package has been delivered.”Matthew Ecker, VP Consumer services at Comcast

According to the 2021 Deloitte Holiday Retail Survey, 62% of holiday spending is expected to occur online this year, opening up potential opportunities for package theft. With motion notifications and 24/7 video recording, the Xfinity Video Doorbell aims to help consumers keep an eye on deliveries and keep porch pirates at bay from anywhere this holiday season. According to a press release from Comcast, “The Xfinity Video Doorbell, integrated with our other Xfinity services, provides a convenient, secure way for homeowners to check in on their front door from anywhere, anytime,” said Matthew Ecker, VP, Consumer Services, Comcast Cable. “We make it easy, for instance, for a homeowner to view the in-app video feed to see who is at the door or to check to see if a package has been delivered.”
