iDoorCam Looks To Wi-Fi Enable Your Doorbell
It looks like Wi-Fi enabled, smart doorbells are quite the gadget trend, with another crowdsourced company looking to create a Wi-Fi enabled doorbell. iDoorCam yesterday that it has launched a campaign on Indiegogo to fund the development of its Wi-Fi enabled doorbell, which replaces a user's doorbell with a Wi-Fi enabled product which alerts a user via smartphone that someone's at their front door. iDoorCam is hoping to raise $100,000 for its project. The project joins a number of other high tech enabled door devices, including a new smartphone-enabled front door lock from venerable door lock brand Kwikset, and a crowdsourced Wi-Fi and camera enabled doorbell called Doorbot. iDoorCam is led by Desiree Mejia, and says it expects its doorbell to be available by the holidays for $164.95. The company is based in Irvine.
