if you often find yourself dragging your feet to answer the door, then perhaps, it is time to enlist the help of the iDoorCam. this sleek, minimalist device replaces your existing doorbell and make use of the current doorbell’s cabling for power, and packs built-in WiFi connectivity, a button for the ringer, a day- and night-vision camera, plus a speaker and microphone combo. there’s also a motion sensor built-into, but you won’t be able to take advantage of it until at launch or at a later stage through over-the-air (OTA) software updates, but it is good to know that this device is somewhat future-proof, so to speak. currently, the device works with a companion app that lets you see who’s at the door when the ringer is activated, wherever you are – be it inside your pad, at your office, or even while you are vacationing somewhere – as long as there’s WiFi, 3G or 4G network around.
the integrated speaker and microphone combo allows communication between your visitor and you – if you so choose to, or ignore the visitor completely. other thoughtful features include an LED indicator that lets you know if the cam is disconnected from the WiFi, a hardened plastic construction with UV coating for durability (essential for outdoor application), supports for multiple users so that anyone in the family can answer the door, and automatic feed (as in, the video) adjustments to suit the connection speed so you won’t be plaque by jerky or dropping image. the iDoorCam is available from INDIE GOGO with starting price of $127. learn more about this new-age doorbell in the embedded video below.
