I’m all about automating my home. Manage my DVR from my iPhone? Done. Adjust temperature from my tablet? Not a problem. Answering my front door while I’m away? Now that just sounds silly.
Well the folks at Doorbot think that there’s demand for this. The Doorbot device let’s you see and respond to anyone at your front door through your smartphone. If you’re like me you might be wondering why on earth anyone would need this? Obviously, you’re not as popular as some people.
I guess if the FedEx guy is ringing the doorbell this might come in handy around the holidays. You could instruct him to leave the package by the door or even around back instead of having to deal with going to one of those shipping facilities to pick it up later.
I question the security issues involved with something like this. Aren’t you basically telling people you’re not home? But then again I guess we do the same thing when we check in on Foursquare or share vacation pics on Facebook.
The DoorBot is available on Amazon.com for $199. Let us know if you’d be interested in a DoorBot in the comments.
