Features and Benefits of Sentry Video Doorbell
Real Two-Way Radio
Real two-way radio means you can hear and speak through the speaker as though you were on the phone with the person on your front porch. Hear them in real time with clarity and respond just as well, without the choppy sound of a walkie-talkie style system.
The Bosma app offers extensive features and enhances usability of the Sentry doorbell. The app allows for remote entry, keeps track of event activity, and allows for easy user management. Smart user management allows you to create profiles for family members and housemates.
Missed your visitor? That’s okay, they can leave you a voicemail that you can listen to later.
Reduced False Alarms
No more false motion alerts from drive-by cars, swaying tree branches, and moving shadows. Sentry uses Advanced Motion Detection to capture only the motion of people, so you will only receive relevant notifications.
Color Night Vision
Color Night Vision allows you to monitor your front door in vivid color and clarity, even in the dark. You can also switch back to regular black-and-white night vision.

What Customers Are Saying
At Bosma, we know that reviews make a difference when you are considering new products to purchase. Here are a few Sentry video doorbell reviews from actual customers.
“High quality product and best customer service!“
– Fannie C. (Facebook)
“I have both Aegis and Sentry. The picture and viewing angle are great. The fingerprint sensor is a neat idea. It lights up with motion detection. Unfortunately, I get motion alerts every 30-90 seconds from about 9 PM to 7 AM every day. The fingerprint doesn’t always work. Bosma is pretty responsive and is taking suggestions to improve the product. When chatting with them they told me to check the doorbell transformer as it might be underpowered. It was, and the day I changed it out and reset everything, the Sentry worked great as intended.…. I’ve been emailing back and forth with support, who are excellent, and they said they are looking into the issues and will be pushing a firmware update. The only reason I haven’t disconnected these is the great support. They seem receptive to feedback on how to improve the products. It’s in the early stage so you can’t expect it to be perfect now. But I think in the future, it will be one of the best lock and doorbell on the market.”
