Invention Of The Week? SkyBell: A New WiFi Doorbell For The Smart Home
There is a new WiFi video doorbell that just hit the market and it should be a real hit among homeowners across North America.
Called SkyBell, this is a video doorbell that lets you see, hear and speak with visitors at your front door from your smartphone.
The technology has been developed by a team of inventors in Irvine, California.
This new high-tech doorbell is a dream come true for any homeowner. You can now answer your front door from home, across town, or while soaking up rays on a tropical beach far away. It doesn’t matter where you are, you can access your front door instantly with your smartphone.
When a visitor presses the button, the device sends you live HD video right to you phone, so you can communicate with the person at your front door.
SkyBell Is A Smart Doorbell
The device, which connects with your WiFi network, is equipped with a day and night vision video camera, speaker, and microphone. Through the free SkyBell mobile app, you get instant alerts when someone rings your doorbell or when someone is standing in your doorway. You can decide if you want to accept or ignore a call with the click of a button on your smartphone.
While there are a number of video doorbells on the market, SkyBell stands out from the rest as it features a motion sensor, which means that you can receive alerts and video feeds whether or not a visitor presses the button. And since it has full time power, you can keep in on “alert” mode and start a video feed anytime you want.
SkyBedll is small and easy to install (Height: 2.75 in – 7 cm; Depth: 0.75 in - 1.9 cm; Weight: 1.9 oz – 53.8 g). You install SkyBell just like any standard doorbell. The neat thing with this invention is that was created with a small form factor to resemble a traditional doorbell while drawing less attention.
Always Stay Connected And Safe
SkyBell’s inventors are confident that their new invention will take off in a big way.
“With SkyBell, you can say ‘why not’ to life, instead of ‘what if.’ No more thinking about your home while you’re away; or feeling scared when the doorbell rings. No more interruptions during family dinner; or missing important packages. SkyBell HD is smart home security that fits your life and your needs,” explains the team.
They add, “SkyBell means more to us than the next great tech gadget. We believe SkyBell will help parents, families, caregivers and businesses stay connected with big parts of their lives. We hope SkyBell is another way for technology to make one part of everyday life just a little easier.”
Another big plus with this invention is that it is far cheaper that other WiFi video doorbells on the market. It retails for only $149.00 (USD).
So, who is that ringing your doorbell?
