DefenDoor, The Smart Doorbell And Home Monitoring System, Allows Homeowners To See What Is Going On Outside Their Homes.
October 17, 2014
  Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) October 17, 2014       Imagine having the convenience of a butler, organization of a secretary, and protection of a security guard rolled into one, easy-to-install monitoring system. That's what DefenDoor offers. This single-unit system easily attaches to any surface and offers round-the-clock surveillance as well as alerts and chimes when suspicious activity occurs at the doorstep or around the home. DefenDoor will launch a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter beginning November 11 with a funding goal of $100,000.         DefenDoor is much more than a doorbell or alarm system. It's made up of a camera that lets homeowners know what's happening in front of DefenDoor at all times, vibration sensors that can be placed on windows or doors to sense any kind of motion, and motion sensors that allow the cameras to turn on and off at the appropriate times. When a visitor approaches the DefenDoor unit at the door, the device snaps a picture of the scene and sends this snapshot straight to the homeowner's phone. The homeowner can then decide whether to accept a one-way video chat with the visitor, ignore the alert, or send the visitor a pre-recorded message letting them know the homeowner is unavailable to meet with them.         DefenDoor can also be programmed to be activated by any activity in the area.
