DoorBot Lets You Remotely Answer the Door with Your Smartphone

by Hazel Chua

Picture this: you’re curled up on the couch with a blanket around you, sipping from a mug of hot cocoa after you started up your favorite movie. As the title credits roll, the doorbell rings.

You’re not expecting anybody and you didn’t order any takeout, so who could it be? Normally, you’d have to get up and walk all the way to the door to answer it (and get pissed once you find out that it’s just a door-to-door salesman.)

DoorbotI say normally because there is another way: the DoorBot. It’s basically a doorknob with a built-in camera which is activated once your caller rings the bell.

The DoorBot works with an app on your smartphone, which displays an alert when someone’s at the door. At that point, you can choose to view the video feed, unlock the door remotely (if you got the integrated service with Lockitron), or speak to the person at the door.

Sounds pretty cool, doesn’t it? The DoorBot project is currently raising funds over on the new fundraising site Christie Street, and the expect to ship starting in July 2013. You can pre-order one now for $169, or upgrade to the Lockitron bundle for $319.
