Why does SkyBell connect to the 2.4 GHz band instead of the 5 GHz band?

We've been asked, 5 GHz is a faster connection, so wouldn't it make sense to use that versus 2.4 GHz?

While it's true that the 5 GHz band is much faster than the 2.4 GHz band, the strength of the 5 Ghz band is not as strong. The 2.4 Ghz band is able to travel a greater distance and pass through walls while maintaining a strong signal. Since SkyBell HD is located outside the home, we have determined that using the 2.4 Ghz band will provide optimum performance.
