Aqara G4, the first battery-powered video doorbell to work with Apple’s HomeKit Secure Video
Beyond HomeKit Secure Video, the G4 offers a wide range of features and capabilities, including 1080p video recording, a 162-degree wide-angle lens, two-way audio communication, motion detection, AI facial recognition, infrared night vision, weather resistance and full customisation.
It is not only packed with functionality but has a sleek and modern design with a choice of Black or Space Gray, guaranteed to complement any home setting.
Despite it being feature packed, the G4’s battery life is one of the longest: its 6-battery pack means it can be used for up to 4 months and the AA batteries can be easily and cheaply replaced. However, there is also the option to wire the G4 to a 12-24V AC or 8-24V DC transformer, whereby the batteries will only kick in case of a power outage. Thanks to its IP rating, the G4 will resist almost any condition: direct sunlight during the hot sunny days, long winters and even wet conditions.
