iDoorCam lets you see who is at your front door, even if you are not at home

Feeling awkward peeping through the front door drapes? Have you had one of those moments where you get to the door, only to find out there was no one there? Or maybe you have always wanted the ability to know who rang the doorbell at your home, without you actually having to be at home. In either of these cases, there is a chance that a new high tech door called iDoorCam can come in handy.

iDoorCam is a gadget that, in conjunction with an iOS app, lets you see and talk to whoever is at your front door. When the bell is pressed, the device will send you an alert to your phone. Then you will be asked whether if you want to accept the alert. If you choose to accept the alert, the device will connect to your phone (an active WiFi connection is needed for the device to work) and live stream your front door through a built-in webcam.

The only downside is that it only works with iOS devices. We still don’t know if it is going to support Android or Windows Phones but I don’t see why it wouldn’t support other platforms to reach out to more users.

You can pre-order iDoorCam for $165 and will be available in October. The below video shows how the device works.

    [@Darcy] Once again, your gratitude is unfounded, since you believe the news know and publicizes everything about the government.

    Guess why they can find something like that in Android faster than iOS. It’s open-source. You know what code to avoid and you have the choice to do so in virtually all Android devices by installing custom ROMs.

    Apple is an American company, you can be damned sure they’re pressured by the United States government. I highly doubt they’re successfully fighting back, if at all.

    In the end, naive people avoid the obvious issue the wrong way and goes to an alternative that they can’t even confirm. This type of cowardice will lead to the downfall of democracy.
