Turn your doorbell into a wireless gatekeeper with the Bot Home Automation DoorBot

Hey, I'm Scott Stein. Have you ever wanted to make your doorbell more like a home monitoring system? Enter the DoorBot. It's a Wi-Fi connected doorbell that screws in on the outside of your apartment, in your house, maybe your work station- basically it sends a- whatever it's seeing on this camera over to your smartphone- your iOS or Android device to an app. It's Wi-Fi connected. It calls you and then it shows you what it's seeing. The wide angle camera can be adjusted in the back and it even comes with night vision. It also works with locking door systems like Lockitron. Lockitron right now is the one that it works with to unlock your door if you also want to. But other than that, it basically a totally self-contained device for $199 that screws in and takes care of the monitoring for you whenever somebody presses that button and that's it. It even comes with its own toolkit. DoorBot is gonna be available October first if you're interested in taking a look without having to peek through the peep hole. I'm Scott Stein with DoorBot.
