Everything at a glance: This is what the Aldi Doorbell has to offer
At a low price, the Aldi bell offers a lot on paper that even more expensive doorbells from Ring, Eufy and Arlo bring with them. These are the talents of the Medion Bimmel available at the discounter:
- Front camera with HD recording (1280×720 pixels), night vision function (via infrared lights), sensor for motion detection, large viewing angle (120 degrees)
- Recording function: Missed scenes on the doorstep are saved on an inserted microSD memory card (up to 128 GB, sold separately)
- App connectionso that notifications via WLAN land on the mobile phone and the live image from the camera can be viewed at any time.
- Microphone and speaker for intercom function.
- Battery operation: Power is supplied by two lithium-ion batteries, so that the bell is ready for use quickly and also works without a socket or power cable nearby.
- Compact dimensions: The bell measures 5×13.5×3.7 centimeters (WxHxD). It weighs 128 grams and is dust and splash-proof.

Price and availability: is it worth buying?
The Aldi video bell is a real bargain. For a price of 65 euros it does not offer top equipment, but has all the important functions on board that make a doorbell smart. An alternative in this price range is the Ring Video Doorbell Wired for 59 euros, but it has to be wired and requires a monthly subscription for video recordings in the cloud. If you want better video quality or extras such as alarm sirens or video retrieval on the smart display, you will find suitable models in the article Smart doorbells with camera in the test, but they cost more than the Aldi bargain. The WiFi doorbell E85010 (MD88314) from Medion will be available from April 26, 2021 at Aldi Nord or online at aldi-liefert.de to have.
