If you are always concerned about your home security, but don’t have the money to spend on an expensive home security system, you definitely need something like the DoorBot, for which its inventor Edison Junior is currently seeking funding. The DoorBot is a Wi-Fi connected video doorbell that lets you see who’s at the door from your smartphone or tablet. Boasting a weather-resistant aluminum enclosure, the Edison Junior’s DoorBot is also compatible with the lately crowdfunded keyless lock Lockitron that you can control with a smartphone.
The DoorBot works with an app and alerts you when someone is at the door, so that you can decide if you wish to open the door or send the person straight away from your doorsteps. The DoorBot also has intercom-like feature that lets you chat with the person at the door via the visitor’s smartphone. You can check out the video stream before answering, so that you may simply ignore someone you are not interested to talk with and that person will never know you’re home.
Compatible with both Android and iOS, the DoorBot runs on four AA batteries and is easy to install with the included mounting bracket with four screws. Edison Junior seeks $250,000 in funding to back the DoorBot and if you wish to be part of the crowdfunding, you can pre-order the basic DoorBot version for $169 or the DoorBot with the Lockitron for $319.
