Support for Apple's new HomeKit Secure Video system has been added to Robin ProLine Video Doorbell. With this combination, users can see who is at their door while making sure that this information is kept private.

"We are pleased and proud to announce that Robin ProLine Video Doorbell now supports HomeKit Secure Video, allowing you to safely store the activity detected by your camera in iCloud," said Robin Telecom Development, its creator.

With HomeKit support, the ringtone sends notifications to an iPhone or iPad. Users can video clips on the Lock screen when the activity is recorded. Siri Support allows users to provide this accessory voice command.

Adding Apple HomeKit Secure Video means that the video is stored on the user's iCloud account, not anywhere else. And video transmissions are end-to-end encrypted. Recently, there has been controversy over rival bells made by Amazon Ring branch about sharing videos with the police.
