Skybell 2.0 - don't touch with a barge pole!

Anybody thinking about getting a Skybell, then let me save you the bother and the hassle.

There’s a very big design flaw with this device that means you’ll be very lucky to get your device to work longer than 6 months. The device is weather proof or as so the manufacturer claims, however there’s an edge connector integrated to the Pcb that isn’t protected, this edge connector then erodes and shorts out the device. I’ve had 2 of these now and both have suffered the same fate. As far as I can see a very know problem known by the manufacturer.

I’ll upload some photos so that you can see for yourself.

So consider yourself warned should you be thinking about purchasing this rubbish.<img src="/upload
