Ding Smart Doorbell

The age-old doorbell is a one-way notification that somebody’s knocking. More modern takes often sometimes include a video camera to catch a glimpse of who’s at the door, and a two-way mic and speaker system to have a conversation. The Ding Smart Doorbell sits somewhere in between. The simple system consists of a minimal-looking doorbell panel with a single button and a fabric-covered chime that’s to be wall-mounted or simply placed somewhere prominent. When somebody rings the doorbell the speaker emits a chime — so far as usual — but a push notification is also sent to your smartphone, which lets you answer and talk to the person, making it impossible to miss them whether you’re rocking out to too-loud music or are halfway across the world.
