Yeah, I see what you are saying. At least they’ve upgraded it to have a box around the bell and the bell lights up as someone approaches, and they said you can have it automatically activate when it recognizes a person or movement without them pressing a button. All of that helps anyway.
You could always use a label maker to print something saying “PRESS” or something similar and stick it on the button area, above or beneath the bell icon but on the square.
Still, having an actual protruding button would make it more obvious. I am guessing one reason for not doing so is that it takes slightly more effort to waterproof it, and subjects it to parts that could wear our sooner with friction, etc.
OH! you could use one of those 3D printed buttons people made for Contact Sensors and put it on there (or near it) using a rule to activate everything…then there would be a normal physical button.
At least it can be set to auto-activate without a person pressing it. That’s how I’ll use it anyway. I read that most delivery people avoid video doorbell buttons like the plague, even if their package requires a signature, they’ll always knock instead. They say that the problem is that they want someone at home now, not someone miles away who try to tell them to wait for them to come home or wait while they call a neighbor or something and then there’s fighting about it, and they hate them…
I know when I usually go to a house with one, I will put my hand in front of it and block the camera, then knock. I never press the video doorbell. It’s just awkward…maybe it’s knowing someone is staring at you without you seeing them.
I guess the point is, that at least for me, the button doesn’t really matter, I’ll have it activate somehow without them pressing the button.
