A couple of questions about this please..

Hello

 

Does the video doorbell have a bracket that screws into the wall? (Then the doorbell fixes to the bracket?

Can I leave out the motion sensors because I think it will go crackers with my 2 dogs?

Does the leak sensor activate an alarm if it it gets water on it so best placing it directly under a potential leak site?

Finally are the required batteries all the same? 

Thankyou!

Yes. You can see them in the video review below. There are two for differing angles, straight or a slight angle.

Yes, you do not need to add/install all the sensors, it's your choice which ones you install.

Does the leak sensor activate an alarm if it it gets water on it so best placing it directly under a potential leak site?

Yes, it will beep and flash on the device and will send a notification to your advice, that you can respond to, with a number of options.

Finally are the required batteries all the same? 

The batteries in the leak sensors are AAA. The batteries in the motion/door sensors are CR2032.

You can choose to use all, some or none of the 'Smart Tech Bundle': it's not actually part of the Building & Contents insurance policy at all.
