Convert Outdated Smartphones Into Door Peepholes [Video]
Xentry combines a container for the phone and software that streams live audio/video.
Xentry is a new product that transforms an old iPhone or Galaxy into a smart door by replacing it’s peephole. A spare smartphone can be reused to provide a live audio/video steam over wi-fi so you can see who is on the other side of your door and communicate with visitors.
The old phone is mounted on the inside of a front door with a peephole attachment replacing the existing peephole lens, allowing the phone’s camera to see whoever is outside. Xavage Technologies developed the housing and app, which provides clear sound to and from the visitor using a patent-pending audio transfer system.
The current housing designs accomodate an iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4/4S and the Samsung Galaxy S. To use the system, you simply mount the device and then install Xentry’s software onto it as well as your current mobile device.
Along with real-time video and audio streaming, the features include a voice changer and door movement notifications. Xentry is currently raising funds on Indiegogo, where you can contribute $55 for the housing, high quality peephole assembly, modified peephole ring amplifier, 15′ USB extension cable, and Xentry mobile app. Check out the video below to see Xentry in action:
