Skybell Trim Plus Wireless Doorbell Review
Tired of your doorbell waking up your sleeping toddler? Skybell doorbell allows you to disable and enable the doorbell chime on demand. Check out my review!
Hey Everyone! Baby Ninja’s Dad here. When someone rings our doorbell, my dog is quick to let us know someone is at the door. I love that about my dog, but when Baby Ninja’s taking his afternoon nap or sleeping for the night, it wakes him up resulting in a cranky toddler and no downtime for us.The SkyBell WiFi doorbell included a feature I never considered that I found helpful. The doorbell chime can be disabled on demand in the app. By disabling the doorbell chime, I still receive notifications on my phone. I use this feature every day when Baby Ninja goes down for his afternoon nap and when it’s time to sleep for the night. The doorbell also serves as an inexpensive way to monitor the front of our home.
What does it include?
The box included everything I need to install this in place of our existing doorbell. Installing this doorbell saved me money and time from having to run new cables and power.

This wireless doorbell has positive features, but it also comes with negatives. For the doorbell to work, it needs to have a good wireless signal. If the location of the doorbell doesn’t have a strong wireless signal, you will need to install a wireless network extender. If the internet connection is down the video and two-way audio features will not work.
If you need assistance with the product, don’t expect to talk to someone over the phone. In my experience every time I called the toll free support line I had to leave a voicemail. I submitted several support tickets through their website, and finally, after several days I did get a support rep to respond but very disappointed with the lack of attention to detail. The rep would avoid specific technical questions and ask me to try steps I have already taken over again.
The SkyBell WiFi doorbell is a decent low-cost solution to monitor your front door, and the ability to disable the doorbell chime while your toddler sleeps is priceless!
